Blackcreek- Thanks for the reply, Do you think I need to pry the gap open and slather some epoxy putty in the joint prior to bonding the outside. The port side is a pretty large gap and i have to press down to get it to join up. guess I could stand on it for an hour. I have drilled a hole on the one side to see inside- the foam is wet but seems to be drying out.

New Interior- First Blush

Viper sent me the shots of the new interior. Looks Great - Im Siked. Had to replace alot of the hardware and the only part I thought was good - the rear seat bottom turns out the seat was busted and the honey comb was cracked in half. Sooooo. Will have to schedule a trip in the near future to load up the ole family van and ROAD TRIP.

You could try to wet inside the seam but you really need a clean sanded down area for the resin to stick to. You could cut a 2x4 long enough to jam under the seat and force the seam back down while the seam is drying. I would just grind and bond and call it a day, the seam doesn't have to be pretty, just functional.

They're expensive and some have said they are not responsive but dang they do a great interior. I'd be tempted to pull a boat from MI down there if I was looking to restore an interior.

Very nice indeed.

update 10-28-13

Received last of the pictures of the drivers seat from Viper. Carl does nice work for sure. On the bow area inner hull debonding issues. Used ADTEC P-17 High Temp Adhesive to bond the hulls with pressure provided with 2x4 blocks pressed into the under seat area. Then glassed over with 10 oz triaxel glass strip. Came out nice . tight and sturdy. On to carpet next. Motor in the near horizon.
