Those pesky windscreen surrounds.

Not sure what the Ikara windscreen frames are made out of but there's no reinforcement in them and they break into little bits at the drop of a hat. The plan here is to join the bits, fill in the cracks, take moulds and make up new pieces with a layer of  Kevlar in them. Passengers tend to use the windscreen as an aid to getting in and out. Here's the outside top piece mounted up prior to making the mould. Today the gouges from the soft top will be filled and sanded.
Next will be this bit mainly because it's a bit more complete than some of the rest.
