Phil Lip****z ask me once ifI would put diamond plate on a Ferrari or Lotus. I think it put things in perspective.

Hmmm, I don't own either a Ferarri or Lotus. If I did, I'd put diamond plate floor mats in it.

Hey man, too each his own.
You are talking to an Italian that thinks Lime Green looks good on sportscars, so maybe I should just bow out.

Looks good! What kind of furniture are you going to set in there now that the "New Room" is finished?

IDRPSTF,
LOL on the Lime Green.
Hey man, I didn't take a burn to it. Believe it or not, I wasn't going to use it because if the cheese factor. But, it started out with just a little and then a little more and then used it all up. Color me CHEESY...

I'm putting 468's back in it. I hope they do more than take up space.

This is my first attempt at a boat like this. I'm so happy with the engine bay, I may sleep there.
