Re: 10 meter Express New Dash/Console Project

Well, ran into a stumbling block. Previous owner secured the old dash with 5200 and it is stuck down. Going to see if I can. get a wire to cut it. This is why I do not recommend 5200 for anything. 4200 has excellent adhesion properties and is removable. As far as I am concerned. the entire boat need...

Re: 10 meter Express New Dash/Console Project

So the plan is the back panel remains secured to the flat dash permanently with blocking along the bottom It is going to have the terminal barrier strips on the inside. The console itself will be screwed from the sides of it to blocking that is permanently attached to the flat dash area. Wiring from...

Re: 10 meter Express New Dash/Console Project

Test fit in boat. It will get pushed forward after I remove the old console. Ergonomically it provides the same view and is easily accessed from the helm chair

Re: 10 meter Express New Dash/Console Project

Well, I stumbled upon this donor console at the salvage yard and got a great deal on it. This will save a lot of work vs starting from scratch. My plan is to cut the top portion off to use for the dash. It is not wide enough, so I will stretch it by glassing in an 8 inch mid section. As you can see,...

I have started my long anticipated upgrade. I had considered utilizing the original dash but it just won't. work out. The pla...

Re: 10 meter hardtop project, radar arch removal

I ended up dropping the height down 3 inches after measuring a ton of times and looking at pics. It seems to give plenty of height without as much frontal area for wind resistance. Boat is now on the hard, frame is removed for cross support welds.

Re: 10 meter hardtop project, radar arch removal

The front of the frame will have 2 supports come down from the corner of the frame to the deck in front of the windshield by the horn. second part of the build involves making a 1 shot mold to make a foam cored fiberglass piece to go over the frame.
