Work is happening here dudes

Doing 1 hr minimum after work at night during the working week, full Saturdays and Sundays.

Primed once all outside panels. Door sills already painted and doors re-installed in the car.

Adjusted door gaps.

Did the first block sanding on the primer in the rear quarters and left fender. Will need to reprime for final blocking....

Does anyone have have a clue where I could find the middle finishing strip between the two fibreglass parade boots?

It was missing from the vehicle when I got it.

Cheers

I am taking easy to not upset my yearly guests...4th year in the run the nest is reused by a Wagtail couple.
This time 3 chicks. One felt from the nest today and I manage to put it back there without issues.

I will wait until they depart to spray both long sides.

Cheers dudes

I have a vent a hood exhaust on the side of the house. Birds move in and I plan on plumbing it in when they leave. This is year three.

I likely don't have it but what does the piece you need look like?

I don't even have a photo from this trim piece to see what looks like (and potentially make a repro piece myself).

Photos and more info would be greatly appreciated. I think made in thin gauge Stainless Steel I should be able to cut and fold something acceptable.

Not sure how it is secured in place.

Cheers
