Default Cafe Restore

Well I decided to start a new thread on this project showing just the restore pics and work being done.

Café is getting new cockpit interior, which will include new carpet and updated hand grabs. I am eliminating the green on the boat all together, what is nice is there is not green in the cabin so that all gets to stay the same.
Engine hatch is still at fiberglass guy, redoing the whole thing with the newer vents and painting it all white to match.
I am having all green pin stripping covered up with vinyl darker grey, this will match interior, talked about paining with my fiberglass guy it was way to much to paint.
Serviced drives so far, replacing trim and tab indicator cables.
re powder coating swim platform black.
Two JLAudio MHD600 amps and all new JLAudio speakers, I love JLAudio's quality
This next part was not planned on..... I had to tear down 1 engine as it has been ingesting water for some reason, which because boat sat for two years caused valve to get stuck open from rust, which caused it to hit piston on start up.
I almost, bought some new blue motors, but decided to make sure I am completely happy with this boat, if so that will come next year....

I should have boat all complete and together within the next 5 weeks depending on the heal time of my broken collar bone, that is delaying everything.

Now some pics of the small amount of completed work, I put those small upholstery pieces just to see how color would look,I have that color and a little lighter color going on seat and lower panel ect.
My detailer got it pretty cleaned up and shiny, he will be back one more time after decals are on, to make her really shine

I agree as much as I do not want to, I may have to. Going to pull the plugs first if they look good we will decide then.

Boy, I sure hope we are boating before August the way it is looking now who knows.... LOL... I miss the island,,,,,

Yamaha - I'm trying to figure out the indicator cable lengths for my Cafe - is this something you could help me with?

What kind of indicators do you have for the Drives? The kind that mount on the side of the RAM?
