A couple more pics of the hull during polishing, it looks really great but there are a few places that need a little more attention so Biffer is going to have a look at them as we ran out of time really...

A really great weekend and I hope that you all enjoyed the pics as much as we did doing the work.

Thank you everybody that has helped so far, either as a post, donation or help.

This rib is going to be perfect

Nugent

Had an idea for the Laser name above the hatch on the Ali Plate? The trouble is I left it at biffers...

There is also a possibility where the black pressure plate is screwed on the helm, but I am not sure if this would be considered as butchery by the SR fans

Hi Nugent

Here's the pics of the A Frame:

We have removed the two flashing lights from the top centre so these 4 holes that go straight through and cabling are no longer required.

One of the arial mounts is bent and not really required.

I don't know why the mod do this but the nav lights seem really high on the brackets?

One of the cables that come out the bottom with the plug on is for the strobe lights so it's also not required, but the hole could be used to feed the arial cable down inside the A Frame as they are normally rip tied down the outside.

Regarding the colour it's a different colour to the hull anyway as the hull is a couple of shades lighter so I think what ever you do will be ok with us

I have the A Frame, brackets and arial all here ready for collection as per our PMs.

Awesome dude, thanks so much for this and do whatever you want to do with it

Have to get it out of the kitchen before Mrs W finds it
