Re: Water Ingress

Has the OPC investigated the alignment of the panoramic cassette in the roof void and whether it needs adjustment? They say that everything is correctly aligned and sealed, Steve. And I would've thought that, having replaced the rubber seal, they would make sure everything was correctly set. If it ...
