0766 Damaged B-POST Replaced 20210325_120805

The B-Post for the Right hand side was damaged in what I considered "beyond repair". A replacement from a scrapped Alpine was available. I had lots of reservations on what the outcome would be and almost did not tackle this! Lou and I spent several hours just trimming it to fit. Beautiful results.
I think it is nice to know what is behind the scene as behind the B-Post in this case.

I recently seperated the two pieces that made a hood. It was a badly damaged hood going to scrap and curiousty got the best of me. Took it apart and discovered what made it work:)
