Yup...all new bolsters from Hot-pursuit when Puder had the group buy going and i had a local guy here redo the original back seat.....and they got some gray carpet for the cockpit. It wasnt all in when i finnished the dash work so i'll get some pics when they get back from their FL trip for you all to see..

Wally, What a fantastic job you did on that Cig. you should be very proud of your self . I bet you wish you were down there in Miami with your friends to enjoy your work. I bet the Cig. factory would love to see it now. One question i have for you is what exhaust are you using (cmi. stainless marine ?) as i see it comes out above the rubrail. My 28ss must have had the same exhaust at one time (just purchased it a year ago ) and i am thinking about going back to it as i am not to happy about the setup i have now. I can see where the exhaust used to exit on mine .Post a pic. of this if you can when your friend gets back. AGAIN , GREAT JOB

The Cig has an Gil 3.5" dry exhaust that dumps water right at the tips......it was too loud so we installed some Gaffrig Power Tips on it. I dont think they make this exhaust anymore though...we needed some riser gaskets and called Ediie up to take the last 4 they had!

Heres a picture of the dusty engines just after the sanding and painting phase.....you can see the exhaust manifolds on them...i have some pics of the engines and risers but not with me right now....

as far as i know its always been blue.....maybe they had it painted when they originally did the engines right after they bought it off ya???? But no we didnt do a thing inside the engine compartment other then mount the airpump for the exhaust tips...

Absolutely stunning!

I just showed it to my girlfriend and told her that is what my Formula will look like when I'm done with it. She doesn't believe me. I'm about nine months into it, and haven't gotten a whole lot done.

Wally was down at LOTO with the boat last Summer. I didn't get a real close up look at it, but from what I could see, he did an awesome job.
