The one spot I didn't also screw, cos I couldnt reach it, where the upper front panel meets the front top corner of the wing, has cracked and sprung apart a mm or so on the passenger side. But it had help, from an impact with a large dog (the dog refused treatment and left the scene) I also now have a short crack in the outer front panel below the grille and just inboard of the N/S headlamp and some crazing in the gellcoat of the wing around where the bumper mount would be if it had a bumper. The N/S indicator lens also got broken in the impact. The drivers side seam is still intact. As is the screwed and sealed seam where the bottom of the N/S wing meets the valance.
