Scuttle!

The corners of the windscreen scuttle were typically rusty, so we ordered¬†a couple of non-genuine repair panels. The quality of the repair panels was… disappointing. Here’s a picture that’s worth 1000 words (most of them curses).

I ended up using the bare minimum of the repair panel, but even that needed modification.

Early Minis had a panel that protected the hinge mounts from road spray. It seems like a sensible idea, so I made my own version.
