Beer bottle brown metal flake is my most favorite color :love:
(hope you can sand that back to it's former glory...)

Nice project! She will look stunning when finished, love that color! Is the bottom of the hull metalflake too? Hard to tell with the white-ish color shown in pics.

Where in the northeast are you?

JLeuck64, I hope so to it just just might take alot of elbow grease.

njskier, I from Mich. Looks to be like the was painted white at one time with a spray can not to sure why but it shouldnt be to hard to get it all off.

Just be careful when sanding. You sound like you have some experience in mechanicing, I just want to put my 2 cents in that you would be surprised how well you can get that gell coat to look if you take your time sanding through the wear and tear. Of course it is sometimes much tougher to bring the metal flake back our to look good than bringing out standard gel-coat colors. Good luck. The more pics you post, the better for everyone. I love seeing someone else project in motion. If I was up there where you live, I would be outside with you sanding away.

Those grills look great.

Thanks markismm, I could use another hand with the sanding. Here at my body shop I can get one other guy to help out with the sanding. It will take sometime to sand I am ready for the challenge at hand to bring it back to life.


Yellow78mc, Thanks cant wait to get them on the boat but it is going to be sometime before they get put on.

If you haven't already, go ahead and replace the gaskets between the manifolds and the riser while you've got them off the engine, they look like they have been leaking for a while. Get the good ones, http://www.skidim.com/prodinfo.asp?number=RM0002
