Man- you are killing me Larry!!! The missing fittings were inside a small bag that was taped inside of the crumpled bag that the product was shipped in. On the way home now- but will have another look for the "beer bag" when I return Wed/Thurs. I sure hope Parks packed it in dry ice and sent limes .
Final assembly in a couple of days.

If you guys would ever come visit me in Miami, I'd be glad to buy the beer.

Ok- new drama. I'm gonna drop this overboard and just screw on a piece of plywood. Click image for larger version

Little ole' me never confirmed that the thread length (which is quite adequate) on the base of the faucet was sufficiently long enough to allow for a nut and then the nylon adapter. Dang...

Believe it or not- this will require grinding (hard to do here on the boat) the FG covering, then removing about 1/2 of the plywood strengthener. I'm afraid the transom shower for this weekend will have to be a bucket of saltwater dipped out of the Gulf!
So I'm picking up/ covering the transom shower hole with tape and cardboard/ and finally getting to washing the boat.
I'm gonna use a belt sander at home to remove the excess and then cover with some cloth and West S.

Not sure of your comfort zone but most of those faucet shanks are reamed inside to a sufficient diameter to allow 1/2" nominal copper pipe to be sweat in. Doing so would allow all to be mounted normally while giving you options to attach your plumbing.

Nice thought Craig- hadn't thought if that. I'm pretty handy at home with copper and steel tubing.
But just gonna put it on hold and fix next week.

OK, - finally some progress. I ran across the first adapter plate that I had built- it turned out too short but was perfect to drill for my now needed "beneath" plate. I also sped the brain cells up into a slow crawl- and remembered I had a perfectly good Fein multi- tool in the truck .

True to form- when it came time to install the fittings- turns out the "seat" at the bottom ID of the straight grey fitting was too deep for the new nylon fitting to seat against. Of course this required Steve to remove about 1/4" from said fittings. Assemble/ open fittings before turning the water back on as a professional plumber would suggest to flush debris/ city water back in/ turn new valves/ check for leaks/ assemb..... Crap. I got a leak.

So. After debating with myself between attempting to seal the small leaks between the white and grey nylon fittings, thickened West won the toss. Hopefully it works. Will test in AM. Click image for larger version

Forgot to update- made my hose connections and tested. All was great. Fit it in place- had some showers today so will have to tape then caulk with my black Life-Calk. Oops got to pull it from the freezer to let it warm up (great idea Marin). Click image for larger version

K. I'm back on it. Notice the beat up NLA/ ICAIA plastic portals in the back ground. They are on the "List" as well. Click image for larger version

At Da! Job complete!!
I'm happy with the results mostly- paint job is mostly a "put it on with a mop, spread it with a rake" affair- but I'll take it .

The black caulk is a bugger- notice some above the shower. I'll have to sand it off after caulk is 100%.

The hardware is properly sealed with Butyl tape, and those corners have snaps for some reason??

And I saw an invoice from Hopkins Carter so my spray head holder must be on the way!

I also caught a few pin fish to use for Bull Redfish bait. I've never caught a bull yet- heck I've eaten bream smaller than my bait!!!Click image for larger version

The holder comes apart, there is a hole in the center of the base. I'm gonna drill/ tap 1/4-20 on the center of the existing base and mount it with a socket head bolt and some blue loctite. This start to makeup for my paint job .
