Did you have much trouble removing the external brightwork trims around the door glasses? The steel screws are tiny and can be a devil because of inevitable corrosion between them and the aluminium doors. And then refitting them!!
Also, are the beadings between the wings and body in good order?

Took quite a bit of time, quite delicate, but successful. Yes beading all intact and am sure will polish up well.

Trying still to sort a body paint guy to take on B12, have an offer to finish it but he's 200 miles away, plus rates in RoI are I suspect 50-100% more than in NI. Currently on paint guy no 12, maybe  no 13 will be lucky.

Two guys failed to come and view, two guys are thinking about it. In mean time have more or less tracked down replacement indicator and boot no plate part.

PS Never mind Simons kind offer!

So in interim, decided to refurb water pump and starter.

As you can see from pics, it's not gone well, upon trying to open body, fractures developed, plus internals severely corroded, new pump required I'm afraid.

Can't load more than one at a time. Does the B12 have an un-pressurised system, any one Know if Cavalitto repair kit was updated as perhaps the supplied kit differs?

That's a shame Frank. And it looks like you have some deep corrosion in the pump body as well.
I have good castings and completely rebuilt pumps if you want.
