Removable scuttle complete

Now my aluminium bolts have arrived from Pro Bolt, I could finish up the removable scuttle project. A little aluminium washer for each, nipped up hand tight, et voila, done. The paint finish on the scuttle retaining channels isn't perfect, but it's good enough for under the dash, and those went back on with a stainless washer and new nylocs. I whipped off the mirrors quickly and placed the screen stanchion on the scuttle and drilled an access hole so I could adjust the mirrors without removing the whole thing, going to be a bit of a pain getting a tool behind the plates that hold the wiper mechanism, but less of a pain than undoing everything. All reassembled and re-fixed with big penny washers behind the skin. All in all, pretty good - the captive nut retaining channels are useful for swapping between windscreen and aero, but with the windscreen now gone, there won't be any more swapping, so I might as well save the weight. It's not a big difference, but every little helps and it does all add up.

The car is also now up on stands, I've taken a seat and the tunnel top off and removed the handbrake so I can more easily work on it when fitting the carbon handbrake sleeve. I'm looking forward to how nice that will look when it's on! Next I have to figure out the best way of fitting the Apollo and get the diff out too. Need to pull my finger out on these, I'm faffing...
