This is going to look soooo good with new red flake.



SCT wasn't going for any of that "patina" crap I was trying to lay on him.

Smash that "thank you" button, if you think these fenders should match the boat.

Original seats!!!

This is where I need a tiny helper around the shop.

At some point I think the front deck got knocked loose, and was repaired with about a hundred or so screws with nuts on them. Any volunteers to hold the wrench for me?



New nameplate coming soon.




Again, SMASH that "thank you" button if you think those fenders should match the boat.
