I’m using the steering off the donor boat. It’s a different layout than other inboard builds I’ve seen on the forum, the steering cable attaches to the strut plate. Here’s a video:

Fire suppression auto POPS at 170F, this might be too close to the exhaust manifold. Anyone have experience with fire suppression systems?

The hatch is held in place with the diagonal trim pieces while the aft decking goes on.

I also put drink holders in the armrests. They are great and also get a lot of use.

None in the drivers seat though, can’t be accused of having a beer while driving 😁

Interior design is fun isn't it? I've spent countless hours thinking about where I want to go with my interior and still only have a vague idea!!
