You will enjoy it when it's done. Keep up the great work Brother. Can't wait to see it on our water.

Casey,

I just read this entire thread in one sitting. You're doing one helluva job, brother! Keep up the AMAZING work. I started the same thing with a 35' Mistress back in 2004, got it to the stripped out stage, had fresh 496 stroker motors built, rebuilt the SSM #2's, had brand new 72C transmissions ready to go in, then started to completely rewire, rerig and chickened out, sold it all separate in 07 or 08, and built a little 26' Corsa with a single instead - so, moral of my long winded tale, I really admire your dedication, and your attention to detail! Everything you've done is absolute perfection!!

My uncle has a 1990 Bullet, with basically stock 454/365s on Bravos, and my mechanic and I just spent three months freshening it up for him - had both engines out, drives off, basic servicing, repainted the engines, mostly cosmetics, tidied up the rigging and cleaned up the bilge - all very basic, but cost a fortune and lt like an eternity. I can't imagine what you're going through! Regardless, the end justifies the means, and your boat is going to be GORGEOUS!

At one point, his boat had a set of naturally aspirated 468s, roller cams, solid lifters, big aluminum heads - made 631HP on the dyno, and ran right around 78-80 MPH...I'm sure yours is going to be a beast.

Looking forward to following this thread, and to seeing the final product on the water soon. Wishing you all the best, and nothing but!!

Harry

Not sure if it's the same brand but they have marine ones. Also purple is also called UV(black light) by a lot of places. Know for a fact the Baja I had they were UV. These were bought and put in by lighting jack coustoms not sure of the brand, but this they were called purple.
