Great progress! Keep it up! Boat will look new in no time!

I like how the brackets came out after the blasting!

That's looking good! Sounds like you got a solid deal on that sucker! Looks like a case of MCOCD.

Was curious what you found when you removed pin stripes. I heard that sometimes they were used to help cover imperfections in gel seams. Did you see any of that?

Not sure on the hours. The outboards did not come with hour meters but I bought one to install. Looking for a location to mount it. If any one has a pic of the same dash or can tell me where it is located would be appreciated. I didn't do a compression test but the boat was always serviced at our local MC Dealer.

Got master cylinder today. Installed it in the hitch and bleed it out. Pulled the brakes off and found out that they where shot and never adjusted. Pull the wheel cylinders to see if they where ok and one hand good fluid and one was like mud. So new wheel cylinders, brake shoes and having the drums turned. Might buy a complete brake setup with baking plate because buying the parts separate are more expensive.
