    Hello group,

    Wondering if anyone on the group (and I think there are a few) have or installed a Gozzard fiberglass tub? After 4 months on order I finally got mine last Monday. Needless to say I am very impressed with the quality and integrity of his tubs. I am extremely suprised with attention to detail for fiberglass.

    I'm not quite ready to really tear into it yet, but I would possibly like to have some other contacts of people who have installed the same tub. I think I'm going to have a few questions once I get going on it? If you have a gozzard tub, or have installed one and are willing to put up with a few questions over the next few months please shoot me an email at > roseauace@wiktel.com < I would sure appreciate it :)

    If your interested I have a couple photos of it sitting on my frame that were taken 2 days ago. The first link shoud take you there, if not click on the second link, goto Matt's Cruiser, and then photo page 3.

    Hi Matt
    I have a Gozzard tub I'm getting ready to install on mine. I can't really help with any install questions because I don't have mine on yet but would like to keep in touch through out my project and yours. I do know of a guy that has installed one and 4x4 Connection formly Land Cruiser Connection is in my home town and they have done some in the past. So feel free to e-mail me or P.M me.

    Burl

    He must have changed his policy if that was the case. I dealt with Mike Gozzard directly and nothing was ever mentioned about that. On his tubs there is a very large sticker installed that says, "for off road use only". I would think he's covering his ass just for the fact it's not DOT approved.

    I would imagine he's selling more tubs if he doesn't have just a couple people doing it.

    Hi Yo Han,

    Yes I am interested!! I just happened to email Mike Gozzard 4 days ago about mounting. I had some ideas myself, but wanted to run them past him. I asked him if there was any paperwork, instructions or helpfull hints that came with the tub, or were supposed to come with? He said there should have been, I think mine got ripped off in shipping, I have nothing.

    Anyway, he said he would get back to me next week, he was going to the Newport, RI boat show at the time. I would love to see what you have now ASAP, getting kinda excited to start on it again for the winter months. If you could email me, I would gladly email or call you with my fax number.

    My email address > roseauace@wiktel.com <

    Thanks, Matt

    Hey Matt,

    I can definately send you a copy, the earliest would be Monday b4 I can fax them to you. I'm currently on the raod and will not be back home till then. I know he said he also has a drawing for the body mountings, but I did not get a copy of that...believe he said he had a softcopy of it so he might be able to email you that.

    I plan on mounting my in a month or so, we outta keep in touch maybe we can learn from each others finding and/or mistakes:)

    Have a good weekend!

    Hey Yo Han,

    I'd like to see them also I have some simple instructions that came with mine. If they are not the same as what you have I'd be glad to share what I have also. I've been in touch with Matt and think it would great for the 3 of us to help each other though the process.

    Shoot me a e-mail cruiser@visuallink.com

    Thanks,
    Burl Alfred
