Finally put on the doors & the roof

Been putting off this job for ages as the thought of duradotting the roof was just too hideous to contemplate... but as the rain looks like it will never stop I finally decided to do it... Rolled out the roof & what a surprise most of the dots were already on! result! it still took ages to do the doors etc... I have to say doing the soft goods has been the least favorite job of the build really. All done but didn't get the vote of approval from the project manager & admittedly it did look like it was wearing an ill fitting mac (but it was fitted correctly...). Having been caught once in a hail storm I did have some motivation tho... The difference the doors make to the wind noise is a massive improvement tho! but even number one son said I should leave the doors off...

Fitted the mirror mounts supplied by Eccles & these worked a treat! temporarily fitted the standard Caterham mirrors but I do need to investigate something a bit more elegant & they also contribute to quite a large blind spot which is not great on roundabouts.

So far I've racked up about 900 (s)miles most of which have been trouble free. & have my 1000 miles check up booked in with Caterham for mid September (holidays\kids\work\weather have played havoc with my diary...). Left hand indicator is going at double speed which I assume must be the indicator relay as all the lights are working, & the drivers side 'windscreen wiper' flew off at speed during a thunderstorm... fortunately I managed to retrieve it but a bit embarrassing as I had a piss taking passenger on board...

Hopefully there will be some 'proper' Sun before we reach Autumn :-(

update: Found the issue with the indicator, the crimped wire on the back of the front indicator hadn't been crimped on properly by Mr Lucus & it had become detached... bit of a pain as access is zero to crimp it back on.. going to have to put in a wire extension piece & crimp into place, bit of a bodge but its either that or taking off the headlight stalk & redoing the wiring. Having done this a few times on the build I don't intend to re visit that little project :-(
