    Total replacement of the outers sounds logical for next year. Can't remember if they are just screwed through to the inner or epoxied as well, could get messy if I epoxied them too. I guess if...

    I had problems with my varnish not drying, which I attributed to me stupidly not stirring it! However as you have one dry part this might not be the case with yours.

    I was only going to make these temporary until I got round to Ash ones. I repaired it and we just knelt until I had made the Ash ones. It was either Ash ones or a diet!
