Wheelarch body filling

433-WheelArches/IMG_6187.jpg

Applied body filler to the wheel arch, sanded down, refilled pin holes, sanded down again. Need to work on the join of rear clam to side panels, but the final shape is very much there. Good results as the wheel arch do not look bolted on.
Need to sand down the gelcoat around the filler,so that the gel coat will adhere, (Gelcoat has a parafin wax , which rises to the surface when curing), this needs to be removed. Then mask off the area and apply gel coat. The gel coat will look painted, but can be finished with T-cut once dry, to acheive the sheen

The next task is to complete the join on the fiber panels

Looked into the wash wipe auto park, and it seem that my moto does nothing when applying power over pin 53a and 31b. Will check to make sure that all contacts within the motor, onto the cam are making as required. Also need to check the wiper switch, as I may of left out a wire to driver pin 53a, when the wiper circuit is in the off position
