I went to Home Depot looking for some wire mesh to insert into the opening of the scoops with no luck. Got home, looked down at my office trash can and presto, instant wire mesh, exactly what I'm looking for.

Now, what's the best way to secure the mesh inside the mouth of the scoop once it's cut to fit? A little silicone, perhaps?

Also, I'm a little bummed that no one has commented on my final paint job...

Good luck with the finished product

Your scoops look good!!! How long did you have to wait to get them?? I order the same thing for Hardin Marine and they said that they didn't know when they would get any more in??

Let me put it this way, I made at least 10 calls to CP asking when they would be ready and shipped. Actually it took at least 6-8 weeks...

Thank you. I've never had anything custom painted. All though a very small project, it's awesome when something turns out better than expected...

I about $hit when I looked at that trash can and thought, perfect and it's all ready black.

Got'em bolted down, upholstered and back on the boat today. Just need to fit some finishing trim rings in and that's a wrap. I think everything turned out pretty good considering I'm a novice at this sort of thing...
