Ian, I can tell you it's still not big enough You'll be surprised of the amount of difficult nuts and bolts there are.

The latest installment of pics, I didn't get too much done this week due to the missus going into hospital for a couple of days (didn't want to risk the missus saying I spend more time with my Vipermax than her ), but none the less got some issues sorted with regard to layout and how things will fit in the console.

Got a nice shiney Control lever with a neutral lock and BIG trim switch and also managed to get all the switches on the same panel which I'm really happy about.

The Carbon template is where I propose to put all the instruments, Tacho in the middle with the trim, volts, fuel, water pressure gauge and clock around.

Are those cunning little stainless railings your mighty fine craftsmanship andy?! Looks great, I'm very jealous! I think you may be on the way to qualifying for RIB build of the year 2007 and receiving back the award that you made in the first place!

Very tidy. I think this may be setting the standard for home-finished Vipermax's.

With the cost of the stainless items comming though, it would be cheaper to invest in a TIG inverter and buy a bender and DIY it.
