Figure 3 and 4. Since the body was in very bad shape, it was necessary to locate a new tub. The search took several months, but a fiberglass tub was located in the town where we live that was for sale. The unit has been rhino lined inside and underneath. The gentleman who this was purchased from did very good work. The photos here are from where it was when it was acquired. This body is from Shell Valley, and is the kevlar heavy duty version.
