No worries, that seems to be the norm on similar conversions I have seen, was just under the impression you came up with another solution.

Did you give her a polish yet?

Cheers

When i get some time i will take some pics of the doors when they are open. then you can see the difference between the door and the trim. there are a few gaps to fill which you cant see with the doors closed. The interior is still a long way from finished. still have to fill the gaps in the door trims, make a roof lining and re.trim all the plastic trim pieces.

f**k, and such a nice car to, I'm assuming it's a write off?

Are you gonna try and get it back and repair or just be done with it and start a new?

Especially losing a complete xr front end.

Any damage to the ba engine?
