I’ve rammed about two layers since lunch and I’ve just noticed that the centre-top clamping bolt has come undone and lost the nut on one side. The tape measure says it has bowed out by about 10mm total width, which is going to make lining up the next form panel impossible. This will cause a visible crumbly step in the wall, which is precisely what I’ve been trying to avoid by using the centre bolts in the first place!!

I’m going to scrape away as much of the surface as I can down to the bolt and torque it up as much as I can without it snapping (they’re not high tensile..) to try and close up the width of the panel as close to 400mm as possible. Then I’m going to lock two nuts together on each of the bolts so none of the others come undone!!!
