Good point.

My very first thought....too little too late.

There is always some rationale for not doing stringers....only to see an engine mount fail and wreck the entire drive line.

Each to their own....

Wow, this thread took an ugly turn.... sorry I shared. I was using my impact driver when the bolt spun, I guess I should've stated that.

I'm sure everyone appreciates opinions, but honestly some members on here tend to hand it out way too freely, I see it everywhere.

Just trying to save you some trouble down the road...no one was knocking your work. Upgrades look good, hope the rest is uneventful.

I know.....caught me at a sensitive moment lol.

I've read through many stringer threads in here and it's ABSOULUTELY not something I want to endure. All other hardware for floor panels and the little ice chest tray tighten up solid as can be. Boat's always been stored indoors and covered, floor is perfect, hoping for the best...

Sorry if I offended anyone.

Very cool to see what you're doing to modernize. Great job! Love the rear seat configuration. Will the engine cover still open with the seat bases that close?

My first MC was a green 77, just like yours. I painted my windshield frame black and put on new decals in black MC "old school" script. It really made the green flake pop!
