i too am rubbish but whether its from my camera chip, camera fone, scan or most www sourced they all come out the same size on the forum . the only time i get a small one i cannot enlarge is i think when i have no copyright i.e. this one from elvis' 3-wheelers.com

Good looking bunch of pale faces in need of some winter sun.
When do you Brits typically manage to get away, and to which places do you usually frequent to ameliorate the situation?
Or do you just double up on vitamin D?
Don't hate me too much for it, but after performing some diagnostic procedures suggested by Alan Hitchcock on my AC Petite's transmission and clutch, I'm off to the Los Angeles Zoo after putting on shorts and a T shirt and some sunblock.  They are predicting a unseasonably warm 82 degrees F, and the skies are blue, although we did have some frost warnings at night a couple of weeks ago.

had a couple of hours to day so was sanding down the bits of fiberglass that went wrong stupid air bubbles , also checking out how the dash will fit obviously needs cutting to shape , the door surround is going to b a challenge , also a steering wheel that should fit

Less resin, more squegee/ rollering.
Don't worry, one of the marvels of fiberglass is that it is very forgiving in that you can always sand/ grind down and start over until you get it right.
It supports all angles of learning curve.
Keep up the good start , and you may be vacuum bagging in some professional results before long! :)

Hooray, I can answer this now I'm not "stuck" on the Forum.

The original headlight was a Wipac but as far as I remember the shell and chrome rim from a BSA Bantam motorcycle will fit?
