Already, here is where we stand...

1. Tails should finally be finished up today then I can polish them this week.

2. Platform and Beauty Rings are set to be done tomorrow at the powder coaters

3. Graphics install is scheduled for June 14

4. Port Engine is currently torn down, found two cracks on the even bank cylinder head and looking for a replacement today. Posted in Wanted.

5. Windshield should be getting tinted next week, weather permitting.

6. The used tips are polished and ready for install

7. I found IMRON in a spray can and used it to touch up the graphics on the transom and bow. I also modified the factory graphic to wrap back to itself since I removed the Silent Thunder platform.

8. My trailer has been descaled and polished.

Update,

Found a cracked cylinder head, picked up a new set from Sick Stinger this week and they are getting dropped off today to be inspected/cleaned.

transom is 90% complete, still need to wet sand, install hooks and paint drives.

Tailpipes should be done today.

The color match on your do aluminum swim platform is fantastic. Do you have paint codes for the two blues on your boat?

F14,

Here is the color chart from Formula Vintage Department.

For powdercoat on the beauty plates and platform the closest match I found to the Ocean color was RAL6027 for the brand of powder my vendor uses.
