Rear quarter glass

The windows on the rear passenger doors of the discovery are split in two.  A rectangular section can be opened and the rest is a small fixed angled pane.

The frame that divides the two glass panels is thin. I've used a short length of black 1mm nail tape for this frame.

The glue on the tape is not that strong so a layer of gloss varnish, over the whole window, holds it more securely.

I've also used a tiny length of gold nail tape for the indicator repeater.

While I had all the bits in one place, I mocked up the finished car. I then glued in the interior using canopy glue.

A final job for this weekend was to solder in the digital SSD chip, so the chassis is ready to fit.
