Ref lockers and hatches with back-boxes.

Iv'e used these guy's at the below link in the past. I found them to do a very fast & efficient service.

Got some more work done on the console fitted steering, gauges, Honda indicator and switch panels and the Honda top mount remotes.

Have gone for 1 Lowrance LMF400 NMEA2000 gauge which will provide fuel data. Then the original tacho and trim meters. Hoping to get the plotter fitted tomorrow which is going to be a tight fit seeing as its a 10" !!!

Then it's just the standard horizon radio and all the hole cutting will be done !

Finished Article !

Apart from a couple of minor jobs to be done over the next few days the refurb is complete.

It's been emotional.

However the final result is as good as I hoped it would be if not better.
