    well a little update, I have re-done the panels around the rear window opening, that's the 4th time and the last time!!!...

      I put the window opening in by hammer and dolly while in situ, I drew around a window template then added the extra for the seal and turned the flange, I made a tool to sharpen up the lower part of the flange to make it a sharper 90 deg.

      just some 10mm square bar and a couple of bits of flat 5mm bar

      works a treat, just have to be careful of heavily marking the panel, although it has a curved shape on the blade part it can put deep indents in the sheet

      thanks for watching
      thanks neil

        Nice panels and a nifty tool to boot. Well done.
