Messerschmitt repairs.

To continue the story of the replacement roof, the new dome was despatched by airfreight from UK and arrived in a huge box. These replacement domes are made oversized (50 mm all round approximately) to fit any irregularity in the cars, so the first job is to cut it to fit. There is no base starting point, and as the dome cost A$2500 and is made of 2 mm plastic, it is not a job for the faint hearted. It took two of us three full days to grind the dome little by little so it fitted. Some glue and a packing strip and it was locked into place and I was more than relieved that we hadn’t cracked it or ground it too small. The car passed a roadworthy with flying colours (MOT to you guys in UK) and is now on the road. We have taken it out on a couple of occasions, and everybody stops and takes a picture
