Having fitted the final nearside window, I was able to properly install the waistrail beading.  I am a bit unhappy with the positioning of it as it rises slightly under the last window.  I may try to correct this before painting.

With the beading done I fitted the inner wheelarch cover.  This required the manufacture of replacement mounting bracket from angle iron, screwed to the floor alongside the wheel opening. I also had to do some work on the beading around the border of the wheel opening which would otherwise be inaccessible after the wheelarch cover was fitted.

Rear wheelhousing repainted, step plate replaced and assembly reinstalled.

Next, I was able to install the outer wheelarch and mudwing assembly that I had made up previously (see entry for 29/4/2021).  I was surprised at how well this fitted.    The last couple of days have been spent in finishing the mudwing with filler and preparing the existing half-round wheelarch beading for refitting.
