So been busy at work and I was sick all last weekend but managed to get some work done this week. I got the transom polished out, man it is easier when there is nothing on it!! And I got some more work started on the engine. You can see my basic idea of what I'm doing for paint now. I have a lot more to do on the engine still and other stuff. Now I am going to focus on all the stuff that needs to get painted because my homemade paint booth takes a bunch of space in my garage. I want to get all my paint work done and take the paint booth down so I have more room to work.

So as I said in my last post my paint work is my main focus right now and I got most of it done now. So I started my engine cover today! Well the pics of it are before I started and the pics make it look better than it is. I must have spent 2 hours today with my Dremel tool grinding all the spider cracks out of it. More pics to follow in the next few days after filler, primer and paint.

Wow I can't believe how crazy the weather is down here in VA! It was super cold earlier this week (along with the rest of the U.S.) So I had to work some long days at work. Last night it was 40 then when I got up today it was 60! So I finished the sanding on the engine hatch but it was WAY TO HUMID to paint!! A storm was on its way in! My garage floor was soaked from the humidity! I never seen anything like that before! I have a pic of the garage floor that was soaked! So I decided to work on getting the new to me transom assembly (thank you baja226sport) cleaned up and ready to go, still have some more work to do on it before I hang it on the boat. Slowly but surely I am getting this boat done!!
