Yes the 454 motor box is considerably larger than the standard box.

MCTB I have thought about doing something like that...not sure if I would like it day to day though.

After getting everything torn apart and ready to separate the hull and deck I started talking to the master plug builder at my company and one of our painters about the best course of action for restoring the hull. Since the boat has so many dock dings and scratches from its days as a show ski boat we decided the best course is sand the entire boat, fill all the blemishes and re-gel the whole boat.

Great boat... can't wait to watch your progress. Have a feeling this is going to be a real go to thread for my own restoration.
