133. Front trim back on.

134. The next problem was to overcome problems

like this one. You can clearly see the edge

rubber depressed. The cause has to be determined otherwise they will leak again.

135. And we've found the problem. The end of the panels have been stapled. These staples are removed allowing the panel to sit naturally.

     

136. With that, the new edge rubbers and aluminium

 trim is refitted.

137. the kitchen slant.

138. A 2m sash clamp is used to pull the aluminium

in towards the van whilst pressure is applied to

the top as the screws are inserted.

     
     

139. The edge rubbers and trim looking much neater

and tighter to the Cheetah than the previous

restoration.

140. Slowly but surely all the edge trim is fitted back on.

141. New red insert trim is fitted.

     
     

142. It looks pretty smart.

143. At last the front looks as it should.

144. New kitchen roof light is fitted.
