All I can say from the pictures is you know what the freakin hell you are doing and all looks planned and executed to perfection.
Keep up the great work

I'm with you guys... sanding is not my most favourite part of the build process too - but I have accepted that it is part of the process and will live with it.

Also, with regard to peel ply, many experts state that you still need to sand between layers to achieve adequate bond strength 8O
Yeah, but it does sand easier somehow.

Willg, I am a farmer with a bad case of DIY-itis :lol:

Cheers, Reefie
I bet you've DIY'd some pretty cool stuff around the farm then. Thanks for sharing your build, it's a special one.

Like Glossieblack asked. I have been thinking about your build and wondering how it is going.
