My carpet and glue came in the mail so I will start getting some work done on that. I should be picking my boat up today from the welder.

Welds look good. I was able to fill the boat with some water to test the rivets. I only have 5 leaky rivets so not bad.

I looked at the pics in your first post then at the current ones. The transformation is fantastic.

BTW, I'm not sure I even believe that is the same console. Haha
