WHERE DID YOU BUY THAT RADAR MOUNT, LOOKING FOR ONE LIKE THAT MYSELF. Also wanted to say i really really like your boat, looks like the perfect setup. THANKSPulled all the hardware and fasteners out, Pulled the rocket launcher. Started prepping the surface.... Not much to do other than tape, mask and cover everything before I roll a new coat of contact cement. I'll coat the backside of the new vinyl, let it dry and then start from the centerline and work outwards. The old glue is the same stuff I am using, it bonds to itself very well as I did a test patch to see if I would have to try to remove it, The original stuff is sprayed pretty thin anyways.

Pulled the stereo out while I was at it and........ I noticed some dodgy looking tape job on the speaker wires

Pulled the tape off to find a lovely solderless / crimpless connection............ WTFView attachment 563543
All the speaker wires were like this but oddly, the power wires were crimped. After being through every inch of this boat this was the only questionable thing I have found.
I ordered a new 6" aft leaning stainless steel ScanStrut radome mount with the gantry rack option........

Over the next few days I'll be cutting out some 316 stainless backing plates for the antenna mounts, cab rail mounts, radome mount and rocket launcher mounts.
