in any case, it's not really 'rocket science, it just takes a lot of patience, 
and a good set of jewelers screw drivers.

BTW - for those of you not familiar with the P1800, it was the original car 
'The Saint' series with Roger Moore. The body was made by 'pressed steel of 
Scotland' and mine was assembled in the 'Jensen coach works factory' in 
so I think it's not too sacrilegious that I mention this 'Volvo' here ;-)
