Windshield Brackets Arrived

I ordered my windshield brackets from Lake Shore Aluminum Castings in Erie, Pa and they are now in my hands.  At the same time that I ordered mine, I also got a set for Squirt builder and friend Art Atkinson.  Art is now doing the research for us. We are going to get them polished and chrome plated.
If you look at the Zip boat at the very top of this page you can get an idea of what the windshield will look like once the glass is installed.

Layout of Floor and Fuel Tank

I have been busy encapsulating the floor boards with epoxy and trying to figure out where to place the fuel tank.  I bought a portable tank but after trying it in the boat I thought that it would be very difficult to remove without leaving the rear compartment open.  Having to leave the rear compartment open is not the look I want so I purchased a permanent fuel tank and now I am measuring for it's installation.
