Clean up and tested everything. The project seems to constantly grow in scope. Rebuild this and replace that.. trim tab pumps and all new relays. Rebuild Hydrolic rams... clean clean and more clean and more buffing...




. powder coat you name it

Forgive the typos and spelling.. putting this together from a phone sux...Started putting it back as I received parts and tried to work on it every chance I got.. after work and the weekends. Hot/ cold / rain u name it.. some of these pics might be out of sequence so bare with me.. I made a few mistakes along the way on my timing. sometimes a good idea should have been realized earlier on in the build. In the back of my mind I keep thinking about the cut canopies and how much I wish I could.find some more.. I was totally blown away what it would take to replace them.. ultimately I knew I needed to change the profile of the boat to work with what I had and the new direction with a wind screen/ shield look..




I decided to replace all my hoses and lines. Kept the Hydrolic steering lines from the helm.... But that was it.. all new stainless clamps etc.. i ended up rewiring everything. I'll show you some pics of the dash.redo later

Man, carpet and glue.. .. this part was so much fun.. had to scrape and use solvent....ultimately i wanted to paint some sections and upholster as well



Pulled the flooring...

Weighing my new dash options.. wasnt happy with the lay out and she needed some new guages.

Found some MTI seats a friend had and picked those up along the way. Still putting some ideas together for the dash. Also determined what I wanted to do on the profile. I didnt post the exact pic i thought but more or less im going with the bottom red line and cutting it there.
