Just been fiddling. Managed to get the door to hold its own weight. But it wont hold it any lower than the pic below. its alot better than it was, but theres still loads of problems, catchs on the wing, taken some paint off, doesnt seal properly round the top edge and once it gets past about 60 degs the door really lifts up and theres only the top of the wing to stop it, more chipped paint, ouch.
Should pass MOT now, im hoping. The guy at the garge saw it this morning and said it wouldnt pass as it was, but ive now made it better so it should be ok.
I still think it looks gorgous even if it doesnt work to well.
