Ok here's the motor no more royal blue. I just primed it for the orginal color. I am going to spray it basecoat/clearcoat. I guess we will just see how long it will hold up. I dont think it would get so hot to burn off the paint with all the water cooling it down. Anyway color to come later on toinght I will post more pics. ( I used 2K Primer/sealer)

I'm impressed! That's quite a project...It's fun to follow the posts of someone that is more talented than I am. I'm envious that are able to pull this boat apart and completely rebuild it. It's something that I wish I was able to do.

Great work and keep the pics coming!

Awesome project, especially the great detailed updates. As others said, I'd love to have the chance/time/tools to do all of that... Any chance I could check it out sometime. I'd love to see an older MC all tore up.
