That does look a lot better but please be leery of problems "just going away" without a real fix behind the improvement.

Sample N=2?

No alarms here, just the oil pressure sensor wired into the fuel pump to help prevent "that" catastrophe.

clean A4

That is one clean looking A4. How long had it been in the boat before this working project? Any in-boat maintenance performed on the paint?
