Ed,
Glad to hear that the decals went on smoothly.
I used Contenti 420-794 solder paste. It is a 96.5% tin, 3.5% silver mix with a melting temperature of 430 degrees F. I also have 420-841 (1145 degree), 420-842 (1275 degree) and 420-843 (1365 degree) solder, but those temps are so brutal on small parts. It's probably just that I don't know what I'm doing.

Thanks everyone!
In addition to the two exhaust pipe trim plates at the stern, there are two trim plates along the sides with two water discharge outlets per plate.

I made the side plates following a procedure similar to that of the stern trim plates.
