Looks a proper job.
Yeah it's beginning to feel like less of a grind now. Even spending 2 hours cleaning and polishing the seat hinges didn't seem so bad.

No, 2 hours polishing 6 of them to get the rust staining of them from the old rusty seat cover staples.

They're a tenner a time, it's cheaper to sort them out than buy new.

The OCD was hard enough to get rid of after doing the seat pods and the console!

I'm beginning to lose my sense of humour with the clown that originally fitted this out.


This is why you don't solder battery cables together. The cable was had less than half its strands intact and was brown inside.

It's a bloody miracle the boat didn't go up in flames. That was in the underdeck area, next to the fuel line.

Opti's don't respond well to dodgy battery cables either Nos.
