Default Started tear down

Well last week we started tear down and body repair. Tore batteries out, all the batteriy boxes (8),alternators are out, and ripped the stereo 4 amps and all 700 feet of speaker wire out. Tore all the headers out of the boat have to take the bow rails off so we can respray the bow.

We have figured out that we are going to take the graphics off the boat. Thanks for the imput it has been a hard decision. We just are worried about the popping of the clear. Anyone that knows us, understands we want it done the correct way not the easy way.

Any Idea what may cause this??? on the paint.

Boy we had fun in Chi- Town

We will update with pics next week.
Thanks
Jeff and Jessica.

See it happened as soon as the second step of the process of the paint after graphics. We had the boat purple then cleared and then da down then graphics and then clear. So I hope we can get this to stop once we get the graphics and top layer of clear off.
Thanks Race Dad

OK...Gotta ask how? Strange to see damage on both sides of the bow. Bad weather or what?
