Rob :)
Something I was introduced to by a friendly MOT man, was Seam Sealer.
Not cheap, but more flexible than filler. Check if it's cellulose based and what is under/over.
This does need to be applied externally, as opposed to beer, which can be enjoyed internally. ;)

Enjoy .... I'll just put up with my cider then, shall I ...

Thanks Rog.,

I've used it on the van and the 2cv before and it's very good. I've used 3M stuff before but I may try something different this time.
Oh i've got cider as well as Gin etc. :D .

Wow! gas welding, that's rare these days but back then...

spotweld 4 layers together and mature since 1980. Considering that the 4 pieces add up to about 3.5 mm. when new, it's expansion over time has been quite dramatic :) .

Ordered repair C posts and began prepping up for the sill repair.

I left the windscreen repair like this for now, fun with bodyfiller later...much later ;) .

If I sit there long enough, drinking tea, it may repair itself.
