Its a window rubber trim insertion tool and I could use it if you no longer need it.

Spot on Wildman, we also used this tool in industry for replacing blast door seals, a great piece of kit. When you see the windscreen replacement chaps use it, looks easy but it ain't, not to me anyway.

Happy Camping:)

Yes pull in the screen with a crossed piece of string then use the above tool to install the 'chrome' locking trim.

Tip to the guy who wants it:- Put the locking strip in a bowl of hot water to soften it and make it easier to get round the corners, and perhaps rub a drop of washing up liquid in the slot to lubricate the tool.

(Also used on Minis, Vauxhall Viva's & Chevettes!!) Now that ages me!!!

Its unmistakably a.......... Polshroder or a Grilshridler, they were used by the respectful guild of Polshroders and Grilshildlers in the very skilled execution of their Polshroding and Grilshridling...........:rolleyes:;)
