Darn, and I was going to invite you over to help with mine.....

Looks GREAT, I only hope to achieve as much with my Caravel. You gave me the push to get back to mine.

Beautiful job. Seven months. Wow. How many hours do you figure it took and what method did you use. I am impressed!

I work on it every hour that I could, haven't figure the hours yet, but a wild guess would be 850 hours. I started by stripping the inside to decontaminate, very important...........

I'm sorry, I didn't realize it was a complete overhaul. I was interested in the time and method of polishing the interior.

Thanks.
