thank you.
I've put Pu sealer under it too, to stop any rattling and dampen vibrations.
I plan to lay a massive piece of chopped strand over the roof and rough back the quarters and A post fillers to make it into one. What's your thoughts?

UPDATE (said in a Dennis Farina fashion)

I've been busy with actual work and not done a massive amount, but have made good progress.

I've fitted a proper metal roof, as, let's face it, the fibreglass idea is shite.
After roaming the scrapyard armed with my fibreglass panel, i found a suitable donor...an 04 BMW 3 series. the scrappy bloke is a mate of a mate so he said "cut what you want off it and it's free to you today", off to the van i pop for my petrol Stihl, stone cutting saw with a 12 inch metal blade in it.

(picture to follow)

I then got the help of a friend today who helped me fit it up, he's shit hot at this sort of thing
we cut the panel out of the BMW top



and also formed some A pillars from the C pillars of the BMW







then we put it all together with packers to hold it all in the exact perfect place, every measurement matches left and right





we then made a paper template gaffa taped to the rear screen with the shapes cut out for the boot (i forgot to take pictures of this bit)
and cut the rear



everything got continually packed in place





and welded





i'm going to form the corners in metal too



screen ready to be back sprayed to cover the messy bit of the dash



ive covered my door panels too





and cut the gear stick down and started reshaping the centre console to take the Peugeot look away a little





slapped a couple of badges on. these were £30 each off ebay and are bilted on like the real thing, and are a good heavy metal





I am really pleased with the flow of the roof line we managed to get.

I am planning to lay a thin matting fibreglass sheet over the whole of the roof in one piece attaching the rear quarters and small A post bits in the hope of having a crack free roof.

Thank you gents.
A little caress here and there and things will be perfect.
I've had a bunch of 4mm packers everywhere and it's worked well.
I will start bonding panels one by one to keep them in the same position.

I really am pleased  how it's turning out.

As I've said to someone, it's 'MY' version of a Stradale, I'm not after building a perfect replica, I just want to put strong hints of the Syradale to it.

Hi All
I hope you've had a lovely christmas.
I've been busy again, I'm having til the 3rd off so am getting as much done as i can.

The roof is covered and all the electrics sorted and fitted for the sun visors etc., also the roof fittings are fixed in

rear panel covered


put a bit of metal in the roof for support


Fitted all the panels ready for bonding




And welded the roof back on for support again


I'm hoping to start bonding the panels on tomorrow, but we'll see how much wine i have tonight!! i've got the gaps 4mm ish all round so will bond panels one by one and hopefully everything will be as it is now.

incase i don't post before, I'd like to wish everyone all the best for the new year.

Thank you for that, Mick, i'll give it a go
Yes, i've replaced the steering wheel and the seats are out, so all wiring is exposed currently, hence why i thought i'd get it sorted
Thanks again

What's the best way to eliminate the light on in the dash?
I'm not keen on just wiring it up to the oil light.
Any tips or advice?

The other thing i looked at was the door cards.
As to conversations with Kev, This is how its been approached and it looks so much neater


ftp://

if 130mm is taken out of the card and stuck back together, you don't get the nasty gap at the back where the 2 bits meet.
