    Norrie, which proportions do you use for paint/thinner?

    I tend to try and put it on with no thinners unless I'm struggling then I just add a small amount probably no more than 10%.

    Is that a rubber hand brake gaiter as if it is you need to fit it going backwards into the void behind the seat box or it will tear very quickly.

    Ok thanks. It did feel a bit tight.

    Got the windscreen frame ready to be re-glazed. Cleaned up all the trim and glass etc. Will finish it tomorrow.

    Thanks for the tip, I have just fitted one and found the same as @norried that is was not as flexible as i had hoped.
    Does reversing it cause any other problems?

    No that is the way it is designed to be fitted. The quality of the rubbers is poor best option is to make one out of leather.
