Default michelob light project update

the michelob light boat is almost ready for paint! i have one small spot to fair out mon am, then i'll spray 2 coats of duratech to block out, before i prime the hull and deck with 3 coats of awgrip epoxy primer. tabs, drives, dash, and cockpit are ready for paint, 1 or 2 days prepping the engine compartment and it will be ready for paint. cant wait to get this baby done! will update this thread as i make more progress over the next few weeks, rm

it took almost a full week to strip 4 or 5 coats of paint off these monster tabs cuz i couldn't remove the pins to get the rams off.
