pkreusch, I was looking at it more indepth today. I am leaning more to just leaving it alone and just polish the dash area. The gel coat is in real good shape. and it will come back to life with some elbow grease. As my Dad said to me "Don't open a can of worm's". I can't agree more with him.

Removing the windshield isn't so much fun that you would want to go out of your way to do it. You could spend a lot of time and frustration on other projects.

I just had to put some things back on to see what there going to look like(pic at the bottom). I am also going to be putting new seals in the front and rear of the trans. before the install. I did some more painting on some of the other parts on the trans. Like the stick,trans cooler, motor mounts and trans mounts and control locks. I will have some pics soon.

Thanks Jorski, It sure is crazy and it looks good. I just hope that the paint will hold up for the summer or longer. This is the first boat motor I have sprayed with base/clear. But never the less for right now I will enjoy it.

Wax sounds about right. I have never used WD-40 on automotive paint. I will give it a good coat of wax once a weekend or every other one.

You're gonna need an avatar soon Jim.....
Tranny looks great!
Sounds like your windshield is solid. I wouldn't take it of either unless something is loose.
Great pics.
What's your ETA for getting the project afloat for it's inaugural tour?
