This?

EDIT: on re-reading your question, I'm guessing you mean the flat piece of fiberglass that bolts to the front of the engine, and spans the gaps between these two blocks of styrofoam? Yes, I do have that. No, I don't have a picture of it with me. I am unfortunately 3,000 miles from home, on a ship at sea and don't expect to make port until the end of August. I will take a photo and post it when I return.

Original seat. I was able to find a shop that had been around since the 1950's; they had the same material, piping, and even the tacks and so were able to replicate this seat. IMG_20111202_132259.jpgIMG_20111202_132351.jpgIMG_20111202_132242.jpgIMG_20111202_132252.jpg

Steering. This handpole has holes near the top from a prior owner fitting a rototiller style throttle to it. Welded up before re-chrome.IMG_20111202_112237.jpgIMG_20111202_112333.jpgIMG_20111202_112446.jpgIMG_20111201_112130.jpgIMG_20111201_113012.jpgIMG_20111201_112151.jpg

Floorboard material. I was told by Bob Bonato that this was the same material as used on Model A (?) pickup truck running boards. IMG_20111201_104951.jpgIMG_20111201_105009.jpgIMG_20111202_112620.jpgIMG_20111201_104851.jpgphoto.jpg

A complete layer of West Systems Epoxy with 6oz Plain Weave on the entire underside of the top deck. A coat of West Systems 105 Epoxy Resin all over the inside and outside, an attempt to rejuvenate the extremely dry fiberglass hull. IMG_20120120_140912.jpg

For future reference you will get more strength with less weight if you use unwoven bi or tri axial cloth rather than woven. Laid up properly, it absorbs about its own weight of resin rather than about double for the woven and triple for the chopped strand mat. That was a good choice of resin. Ask for the loosely stitched glass if ever you do use the unwoven. It can be moulded into something as small as a teacup.
