That stuffs pretty brittle
Been chewing over what to do, dont want to seal in as this may trap water, but also think this plastic was there to also stop the splash guards from rubbing on the inner wing metal and corrosion, me thinks I will when re installing go for the silicon, shove loads of silicon along the seam and refit the splash guards, that way if it needs to come out can be peeled out etc.
Been diverted by other things ( work is the curse of the classic car restorer) but should be back at the car hopefully this weekend, only a lttle bit of cill to finiish and then some TLC to front nearside wing, a quick walk round to check and hey presto ready for paint shop, only eight months work on and off, a real learning curve never seen a vehicle with so may nuts and bolts and sadly given that it is hand built so much corrosion due to simple lack of attention to rust prevention at manufacture
