After work Friday I drove out to see the van for the first time in two weeks. Aaron and The Dude had been busy replacing the side panels over the last 6 days. The two panels I received from Fairmile were deemed by Aaron as unsatisfactory for the purpose, and consequently they remain unused. Thus I was not disappointed by the progress made in the interval between visits. Aaron and The Dude made new panels, and this simply took a lot of time. They had to make jigs out of wood to bend the medal around and shape the parts using the English wheel. I have photos of how they did it but I have not posted them here (I'll do another post later). Visiting the van, one cannot help but rub their hands up and down the surface -- a clean metal smoothie! Finally, Aaron told me that he tried to reply to Bugly's earlier comment without success owing to a technical error. If you want to communicate with him, please contact me and I'll send you his email address.
