Wingnut, I haven't been on this forum much and just went through all your pictures and posts from start to finish. You are a true craftsman! You make all of my restoration projects on my 1992 Prostar 205 look half-fast. Your work is inspiring me to get to work on all the little nits that remain on my boat. Unfortunately, I can't blame anybody for abusing my boat because I've owned it since it was new....

Congratulations on a fine result. I hope your fuel tank gremlins are nearing the end of their days.

From McMaster-Carr- 1" Heavy duty Foil Sided with peel adhesive backing- Comes in 54" wide roll- Bought 8 Feet and it was enough- Wasnt cheap- $140 with $25 shipping - arrived next day. Adhesive STICKS well but had to clean the old crap off the box which wasn't fun at all.

awewsome! weeds suck.. I check my trans cooler / backflush if I wind up running on a particularly weedy day.

Ski it up - what shirt no pictures.. just sayin...
