Projects / 74 Rogers
« on: March 11, 2011, 08:17:01 AM »
I wasn't looking for another boat, but this one showed up on Craigslist a few months back, and since I've always wanted a Rogers and it was only 5 miles away, well you know the drill.  I picked it up and put it in storage.  It was sitting like you see it since the early 90's.  Engine and that stuff gone.  Finally got the white on the bow to shine, via a lot of color sanding, using soft scrub and comet, then some more color sanding.  The blue color shines up nicely, thing is I don't like it, I'm going to repaint the blue with a modern blue pearl color and some flake.

Ok, so my current project has spent some time sitting.  So I spent some time color sanding and then buffing.  It shines up, and is smooth, the chalking is gone, but the white on the bow is still a bit dingy in places, similar to the dark on a hull when it's been in the water a couple days.  Not that it doesn't shine, but it looks dirty.  Cant seem to buff or color sand that out.  Hit it with some 400 grit, which helped, I don't want to sand too far though.  Any tips/tricks or readily available product that might help?  If it was a sink I'd use bleach, don't think that is good for the gel though.  Thanks

Miscellaneous / Spam / Black bucket seats
« on: October 27, 2010, 01:07:11 PM »
I still have a pair of black bucket seats, sorry no pic, but if you ebay search JDM red stitch seats that's what they are.  One of the side bolsters on the base is broken but it's still attached and you cant tell unless you push it.  They are in excellent condition. I had them in my Jeep for about a month and then replaced them, seats with high sides don't work so well in that application.  Cloth.  Price.....come get them out of my garage and I'll even have a beer with you, I'm in Redondo Beach.  They even have the sliders.  Once again, FREE.  I hate to toss em if someone can use them.   

Project Boats For Sale / 82 Marlin
« on: October 04, 2010, 04:33:48 PM »
1982 Marlin Barracuda model.  NO ENGINE or battery.  I'm keeping those.  Good shape, has the usual scratches and chips but the gel is still shiny.  12JC pump. Diverter.  Needs an impeller, a friend managed to injest a few rocks and I'm not sure if it can be saved.  (its a B, was detailed by MPD).  Has an Ulitimate Wear Ring.  One of the stringers was pulling in where the engine mount is, I used a piece of 3/16 stainless plate to reinforce it.   Been that way now for 20 years.   They are full length stringers. I'm the second owner, had it since 1990.  All the gauges work.  All the cables move smoothly.  Interior decent.  30 gallon center mounted gas tank.  (which I was never too fond of, since it takes away some of the floor space).  Has a old sport loader or whatever they called them before they became fancy.  It's thru bolted.  2 bilge pumps.  Trailer decent, not real pretty but not ugly either.  Well, maybe a little.  All lights work and I redid the wires recently.  The wiring in the boat is even new and I used the proper colors.  (It used to run low 60's with a mild 350, did 70 with 4 people on board with the 383 that is currently there.)  All paperwork is in order and up to date.  Trailer has the PTI tag.  It will need an engine and the stuff to mount it, bellhousing and the driveshaft.  And the impeller.   It has a cover that will go with.  Like a lot of you, I like boats, but I don't have space for 3 and I just picked up a Rogers hull, so this one will have to go.  $1400.  I'll also sell it without the jet and diverter for $1000.   I haven't yanked the engine yet, so it is possible to arrange a test drive with some notice for anyone with a serious interest.  Thanks for looking, boat is in Diamond Bar.   Again, will be without engine.  

Engine Mechanical / Electrical / MSD question
« on: September 11, 2010, 09:10:46 AM »
For the experts on the MSD 6AL, I think that's it, the one that takes the limiter chip, is it possible to hook a switch the spot where the chip goes or rig something up so I could manually activate that function?  Thanks in advance,

Miscellaneous / Spam / 68 Chevelle

Anyone need a rear bumper for a 68 Chevelle?  I have one, it needs to be straightened and redone, but if you want it you can have it all you have to do is come and get it.  Greg

Miscellaneous / Spam / Black bucket seats-$80.00
« on: April 17, 2010, 03:11:40 PM »
I have a pair of black bucket seats, just like the ones in this auction.

They are in like new condition, one of the side bolsters along the bottom is broken, it's still attached but you can move it.  I had them in my Jeep, they are comfortable, but they don't work so well in that application, which is why the bolster broke, made it so you had to climb in as opposed to just hopping in and my friend broke the one when getting out of the Jeep after a day of wheelin.  They have the tracks on them , I don't have a pic handy, but they are the same ones as you see in that auction (that is not my auction either).  I only want $80.00 for the pair.  In Redondo Beach, but I am also in Diamond Bar from time to time.  I lowered the price to 80 they are in my way and I want them gone, anything interesting to trade?

Miscellaneous / Spam / Tool chest
« on: April 12, 2010, 10:01:42 PM »
Craftsman tool chest, $400.00.  Has matching keys.  The top/bottom are from the 80's, the midsection about 6 years old.  (I bought a bigger one and no room for this one)

Engines / Engine Parts For Sale / It's a bit OT, anyone into VW's?
« on: April 12, 2010, 06:42:47 AM »
Before I ebay or craigslist this stuff, anyone do VW stuff anymore?  I have some VW engine stuff that I've had laying around for, well about 15 years, sold my buggy a while back and never got around to using this stuff,  I have a block, it's been machined for 92 mm piston barrels, it was also machined for full flow on the oil system, (whatever that means anymore it's been too long since I've worked on a VW), that was done by a company called Rimco in OC. I also had the block reinforced at a spot where they are prone to cracking, had a piece welded over that area, done by Micro-tig in covina. (it wasn't cracked, I just wanted the insurance)  I have the pistons, 92mm Mahle, forged, still in the box, made for stock stroke, back then you're only choice was to shim the barrels for a stroker, you can still get the shims, an Engle cam, not sure of the specs, a pair of 48 Webers with manifolds, not sure which models they are, no stacks for them but I think I have the linkage, have a Holley bug spray carb that needs a float and the manifold for it (that one is single port), a set of zoomie buggie exhaust in good condition, and some other odds and ends.   I can get some pics for you in a few days since it's stored at my folks place if there is any interest. 

Engines / Engine Parts For Sale / Late model 350 rotating assembly
« on: March 30, 2010, 08:09:25 PM »
Howdy all, I have the rotating assemble out of a late model 350 crate motor, the 330hp version.  Crank, pistons, rods, rings are still on the pistons except for ring broke on removal, think those engines come with hypers.  All in good shape.  I numbered the rods, hope the paint is still there, think I even taped the main bearings around the respective journals.  If anyone can use it it's yours all you have to do is come get it, I'm in Redondo.  Greg

Random Boat Parts For Sale / Shift Handle
« on: June 01, 2008, 03:54:31 PM »
Detent shifter, can't use because it is too close to the side on my boat when mounted, it would work just not so well in a panic situation.  It's used, was anodized blue originally but most of that is worn off and I tried to polish what was left off.  I painted the mounting plate the color you see it now.  Used so sold as is, $55.00 delivered to your door before it goes on Ebay.
