Hi , thought the following might be of interest to others who are refurbing their Vitesse , Herald doors . The pic above shows the quarter light stripped down , the mid item is the old window runner channel removed , the inner padding has rotted away so scrap. The lower item is the Canleys replacement part no 559474 . This is a flexible channel which will be glued into the quarter light channel The above pic is the rear window channel with the replacement Canleys rear window channel part no T2. ( lower item ) The 3 brackets need removing and riveted to the new channel To replace both doors with new front and rear channels cost £20.33 deld from Canleys , not a bad price to cure rattly windows Hope this helps Paul
Hi, my Mk2 Spitfires total rebuild is nearing completion. I was discussing the doors locks with one of the guys doing most of the work, his view is not to bother fitting door locks, we've had two new outer doors skins so they would need holes drilled out etc, as they tend to not always work properly, and if anyone wants to break in they will just slash open the roof. He suggests fitting a Thatchem alarm instead. What do people think? Cheers, Kevin
