Just trying to get mine together by the season, but did buy a newer style swim platform similar to the ones they use on newer cigarettes. Was able to get a used pair of 502 Mag takeouts.

What new blower thing did you do? Did you ever get it to run like you wanted to? I recall you were playing with props and had added -2 shorty lower units, but were still trying to dial in that setup.

Just curious, were the Mag 502's carbed? What did you spend? Ballpark. I will have a couple this coming Spring and want to price them to a friend who is chomping at the bit. They will need some head work plus plus plus.

Magnum EFI. Paid $13K for the pair full bobtail (stock exhaust manifolds) after leak down failed so was implied they needed some head work. I probably would of paid a little more tho cause they were late model gen VI with serpentine belts and really low hours, like 300, freshwater, really clean, ran fine, etc,

redid my dash, sent the gauges back to livorsi for new needles (faded) and lenses. took some flattened clear and resprayed the dash itself.

replaced my plastic "box" that mounts my trim and drive switches with an aluminum one painted semi flat black.

sent off all my laminated plastic plates with the engraved letters to be replaced with new ones, the black was getting faded and the letters were yellowing.

i'll post before and after pics when done, heres the dash for now
