time for a small update i recently bought another roof as the aftermarket sunroof it had was driving me crazy so time to do my first roof skin and i must say its a pain in the ars  Mad 



that was the easy bit cutting the skin off.
as for the fitting the other 1 and keepin it square was a real pain but 4 hours later and alot of cursing its in and ready for welding but al leave that till 2morro when i have a clear head
