It may not be fitted yet J,but when I saw it you could not only have eaten your dinner off it..you could even see your reflection in it!
... Knowing Matt I'm sure it will be worth waiting for!!

Ok peeps, went down to Ribcraft a couple of times and its nearly finished, I asked them to slow it down a bit as wasnt going to be around to take the pics and of course wanted to personally to see the build in progress!!

Anyway, really pleased with mid results, That consol is so firmly bonded in that no amount of the punishment Ican throw at it will shift it. I have also asked them to construct a removable fuel tank section underneath the passenger seat for an additional 25L of yeeeha juice!!

In front of the rear seat, a 3 way fuel tap will be installed connecting the front 55L in built fuel tank to the rear 25L.

That would have proven he was in denial over building another SR

Anyway went down late today and took some more shots!! I think the last picture shows how exciting the whole process is getting, maybe the new heated seats are a bit hot!!

What are you going to call her? And she looks like she'll handle everything from a slight swell to the really rough stuff!

Called in today and its nearly finished, i was also watching them cut the Hypolon tubing with their new bullmer cutting weapon, it now takes 27 mins to cut a set of 5 mtr tubes and to an acuracy of 1/100mm.!!

OK, will have to get down
Just make sure there's not enough fuel on board for me to get around the coast and up here. You'll never see it again
