Thanks Derek, done mine with etch primer.
After looking at the plans in the Hayward book, I decided to revise the rear deck.
I have made the engine compartment wider and moved the tail lights and louvers further back, so far.
I attempted to make the ventilation grate from 26 gauge rod, that I had. It's a mess, to be honest! So I'm going to remove that and start again on that part of the build.
I'm enjoying the build even more, now that I am taking my time!
Having seen the new high efficiency drive photos, I'm looking forward to the day I part with my pennies to install them in Belvedere.. On that point, and this has probably been posted before, what batteries are best to run the tank?
Once again, thanks for the help and support from everyone.
