Could I ask what you used to strip the paint off.
Response by Mataroa on the 24th Apr 2017
Hi there i use a heat gun and a scraper to strip the paint off in this case it was easy to do but in other cases it might not be easy to do. cliff

cheers cliff i have the same boat but just found out the paint is cracking and flaking off so just working out the best way to strip it back to wood and start again. George

I keep looking at one of these, maybe!!!! At least you have all the bits to make copies of should be fairly simple if time consuming
Good luck with the re-ferb
