Project Curacao

This is an 8 Mtr Capelli Rib owned by a Hotelier in Curaçao I have been commissioned to Retube.
Original tube was black and I am changing it to commercial grade military grey for him.
The tube was built and shipped out and I have flown out to fit it for him, 'kind of nice to leave the British weather behind and it's positively barmy out here!
