Default Cafe Racer project update

-Autometer gauges have arrived
-Gaffrig polished trim rings have arrived
-Momo platinum wheel from Marine Machine has arrived
-Rex Marine polished hub has arrived(with the wrong mounting hardware)
-Team Marine has dash, gauge and trim switch panels to be powdercoated
-My Mercury controls are with the Suffolk County District Attorney's office---apparently a disgruntled emplyee of my local powdercoater twisted the handles into pretzels. The owner has bought 2 new handles and cannot get the bases back.
-New style grab handes are on there way from Tres Martin
-Nav station and door are at Kryptonite to be re-gelcoated...boat to be delivered at a later date.
-CMI exhaust arrived months ago
-New Weiand Team G tall deck manifolds arrived months ago
-New Holley Dominator 1050s arrived months ago
-New MSD box back from MSD---for the 3rd time--they tell me it is OK.
-Motors are still out of the boat...waiting on the engine builder to complete.

Here's pics of the cockpit...

Wow Sean, I thought my projects were running a little slow......you have made me feel a little better..........ah.....you will get there!! I had to wait 8 weeks for my panels from Team Marine...they slowed me down a bit.

The hardest part is waiting on other people to do their work on time and if it comes out right the first time is the real test!!

I should be complete in 2 weeks and ready for the water!


Best of luck,
Spence

Sean,
That sucks about your throttles! I'm glad I got my dash panels back before that guy did anything to them!
