Still chugging along with the Cat project. Gimbals are ready for epoxy primer and paint , and the engines are about 85% ready, then Bob can start on the boat once the engines are dynoed and the gimbals are together.

These #6 drives were canary yellow when I got them. What a pain in the ASS to get all that yellow paint off. Gimbals are epoxy primered and painted , need some seals and bushings from merc and they will go back together, still have rigging to do on engines , then to the dyno!

We will be on the dyno and tuning soon. and the Cat is off the trailer and in the rigging room with it's chest sticking out like a swim suit model. Sorry it's taking so long. I'm on the pay as we go plan. We will be painting the Monster tab black to match the drives, I understand these OE Cats do fine without tabs but the cool factor is there when you have one and there if we need it. Stellings headers and tails are pressure tested / re-polished and ready to go. If this project seems to be taking a long time to finish it's because there is so much planning in rigging a bare hull, it's expensive, and each step is paid for before the next step is started. . Money, Time and patience, mostly patients. Thanks for baring with me. We will be flying over 4 footers in this Old hole in the water some day.
