    Fencing was pretty ugly, bought a couple sheets of FRP and glued it to the fencing. Has held-up so far from below freezing to 100*. photo P8240004_zps4ea84234.jpg Made jigs to clamp it while adhesive cured, photo P8240007_zps19913f8a.jpg Corners I just had to "wing it" lol. It can be painted, should I ever decide to, I wanted to wait to be sure it would hold, and after 2 years, I'm satisfied it will (has). photo P9080001_zpsb1d6d2f2.jpg Console seat base painted, and door added. It's split in middle, seat raises for upper storage, lower door for bottom storage. photo P9150005_zpsbcecec6f.jpg New shoes photo P9100001_zpsxtfcqkab.jpg

    PVC Rod holders (for road travel), hold 12-14' rods photo PA140001_zpso31e1wr5.jpg NOCO 2-Bank 10amp charger for start and accessory (electronics) batteries. photo PB060001_zpsy3ys32ze.jpg Stereo speakers installed photo PB060002_zpse9kty1ib.jpg Still need to get 3 seat pads made, but not having much luck finding anyone local who likes making money. Probably end-up buying a machine and sewing my own, and probably for less than it would cost to pay someone to do it.

    Finally found a motor a couple weeks ago, had been looking for months, ended-up buying a 1990 Stratos for the motor. photo P3190014_zps6l8ujugq.jpg photo P3190012_zpsf3mrtv55.jpg photo P3220017_zpsygovbhkk.jpg Maintenance wasn't a priority, section of fuel line. photo P3210015_zpsscymmnp0.jpg

    In the process of ordering parts to rebuild (6) carbs, along with replacing fuel bowls (which had a problem with warpage), thermostats, water pump, plugs, seals, etc. Been painting motor parts in the meanwhile. photo P3290005_zpsbdoxyukz.jpg Did also modify Stratos controls to work on my console, just need longer cables now. Also planning to add hydraulic steering. photo P3280014_zpskpqmei59.jpg The cowl louver vents were broken, and no longer available, so I made new covers, and will screen the back sides to keep wasps out. photo P3280013_zpsldxkvgam.jpg

    Well, that's about it in a nutshell. Sorry for order of pics, but I bounced-around while waiting on parts/materials. LOL, I'm tired from just posting.
