Cooling coil by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 days ago
All the cooling coils I have seen,do not have the coils soldered together.On all the ones I have weren't soldered.They all provide the cooling very well.

Now Coating and Matting by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
After the application of fibreglass or matting i usually put on a second coat of EZ-Cote.After drying lightly sand.Overlaps I find easy to level up with another coat of EZ-Cote.I have been using the same bottle for 3 years.That stuff really stretches.All the wrong size fittings can always be used on other projects or modify them to suit yours.
