Removing this stuff is incredibly tedious. Boiling water softens it a bit. Wondering whether I should dismantle it as much as possible before applying boiling water to too much of it.

Hmm... never finishid this post..!
I've now moved on to using a hair dryer. works well! not hot enouh to affect the plastic, but warms up the goop nicely enough to scoop out some and squish the rest down.
then I'll probably get some new stuff and layer it on top.
At this stage I'm pretty confident it'll work out ok.

Attacked the bit I really needed to do before I bothered about anything else.
The sunroof frame's a bit cactus.


First attempt at re-gluing hoodlining:


I wonder if I can get a roadworthy on it without a sunroof in it!
