Thanks for the link Dave.

Chris your hull & console look very clean & bright have you refurbed these ?

I've got the console filled & rubbed down ready for painting do you know if I can
use a diy spray can or has it got to be a spray shop with 2 pack?

hi, the hull & deck were tidied up by Mike Whitham of Whitham Glassfibre, he also supplied and fitted the console / jockey seats, so it's basically all new apart from the original hull. can't really offer any advice on the best way to finish your console off as I've never done one myself, but there are plenty on here who have, you could try Barrowboy as he's just done his console, send him a pm as he's off shore at present but has got interweb access, tell him I said he has plenty of time on his hands to help you out, should do the trick let me know if you need any details of who have done stuff for me, they have all been spot on and really helped me out with my SR4

Can't really offer any advice on painting the console because 'all' I did was clean, polish, buff and wax mine but it went from looking like this:

Thanks Chris once again for your reply

Thanks Barrowboy my console had a dozen holes varying from 2"-!/4" so I've had to glass & fill plus its had a few repairs before I bought the rib its now a mixture of colours

Top job on your console.

Decided to buy a 2 ton engine hoist today prob better than messing about so I guess this SR is going to become a bit of a project.

I've pulled all the console to pieces glassed it & primed ready for painting going to use polyurethane 2 pack for this.

Ordered a new Teleflex steering set up & decided to remove the grey anti fouling off the hull using some type of paint remover. (the advert makes it sound easy)

Regarding the tubes I've done a lot of work for a guy who is a Zodiac agent so its booked to go in for a tidy up ect in a couple of weeks.

I'm still not sure what to do regarding the deck seems like an easy-ish job to Flo coat the hard bit seems to be the verticals ect ?

That's the spirit!

You know it makes sense; every man needs a project.

Plenty of pics/updates as you progress please
