Finally a win. It all fits now. Now work on the rockers. Another step closer.

The Horse has bolted , looking at the photo did you try right angle plug leads to the cap before the mods.
All your work is a credit to you.

Good Work Craig, looks like its coming together. Although you could have polished up the rocker cover a bit :lol:

A bit more testing with mixtures and water pressures before starting on some preservation work on the deck. Pretty happy with it so far.
