Its looks mighty fine Respect!
Very brave to apply NitroMoors to the composite surface, never tried it on GRP but I know that its aggressive stuff.
I look forward to seeing the next photos.

regards,
Stu Knowles

Hi
For what is worth Nitro moors do a paint stripper for use on GRP used it in my boating days
Most good boat charlenders should have it.

the nitromors didn't seem to damage the surface.....tested it first but then went mad with it....certainly got rid of the paint!
now comes the installation of the interior.....made most of the parts...used lithoplate mostly....need to add some more....support for the armour plate for one.....pilot can't wait to climb in...
