Prior to getting ready to shoot some single stage on the bottom I thought I would mock up the old housing just for grins and I saw a gap between the hull and the housing. It's located dead center and the tightens up to no gap on the sides. The drill bit is a 3/64 and it's a touch smaller than that to give you an idea.

Now I realize that we bed the housing in some goey stuff but is that gap gonna be too much? I'm tempted to close it up but thought I would run it by you all and see if Rork's being too picky again..........

Also kinda wonder if I found my cavatation problem on the old pump, hmmmm......

Here's a couple pictures

Crap, couldn't stand it. Layed some epoxy and cloth in there. Layed on some PPG DP40 epoxy to seal it all up and I think all I'll need is a thin skim of some Evercoat Rage Gold to make her purdy. Bound to be better if there's no gap to fill with goey stuff.

Here's a pic of it with another layer of glass and epoxy and then another after the DP40 applicaton...  gotta love that itch from fiberglass dont you?

Thanks Greg. Appreciate that compliment.  I'm pretty much standing down till the paint and speedcoat I ordered comes in. Then all hell breaks loose.
Can't wait to get some paint on there that I'm not planning on sanding off (for a while  ;D)







Also for those of you who are interested (which I suspect is none besides me), here's a picture of the "spoon" that is molded into the stock Panther intake.

Thats been the point of many descussions and it's nice to see one correctly done versus someones interpretation .

Your project is coming out very slick .

Thanks Beerjet. I would really like to search this concept out as in theory I think it's a great idea. Clearly I dont think the "conventional" mod's will produce the same results as a Berk intake but deep down, I really think the concept is good.  With that said, I've been wrong more times in life than I've ever been right....

Stay tuned and thanks again..........john

I was woundering how the boat builders could have such a deep inlet run, but with the spoon, it all makes sence ;)
Excellent work, look forward to more of the progress!  Keep them pics coming
Hopefully one day I'll make it your way and play in your neck of the water  ;D

Ok John,  It's time for you to upload some more photos of what you got accomplished this week-end.  :D  So far so good!  You are inspiring me to get busy on mine but got to get a shop first.  Greg

 ;D  You are doing a fine job when you consider where you live and how you have to travel or mail order just about everything you need.

I know how you feel.  Seems we haven't had much of a summer here either.  We haven't had the rain or really high winds just cooled way down really quick.  So much for global warming.   >:(

Okay, here's an update

First is with the sealer. It's PPG DP40LF with some 401 catayst and a splash of DT860 Reducer to seal everything up. As Greg has pointed out, supplies are limited in this neck of the woods so I settled with what they had (DP40) instead of the DP48 which would have been white and would have allowed the bright white to cover that much quicker

I let that  cook off for 2hrs and then began  laying on the Concept Singlestage. Crappy weather (4" to 6" of rain and wind) makes it so I have to snap the pics inside the shop but hopefully it'll give you an idea of what it looks like. I gotta admit, it looks gray in the pictures but iit's n fact is bright white.

Here it is with the DP40



And here is is with the Concept on it




[imghttp://i63.photobucket.com/albums/h157/jrork/IMG_0241.jpg]http://[/img]

Next step is the application of the speedcoat and then flip this boat over for the last time (hopefully)

Thanks for watching this come together.......John

Kinda makes what I'm doing very superfluous.  Oh well every little bit I can get done now will be that much less later on.

Nice job!

Keep after it. If I'm fortunate to be able to make this come out okay in the end, ANYBODY can do it!   Hell, I'm making  this stuff up as I go so there's no reason why somebody else can't do it (and have it come out better) so keep after it.

Oh, I'll keep going since this is all I can do for right now anyway.  I was hoping to get in the water at least once when the motor gets back but who knows what the weather is going to be like in a week.

Here's the latest with the speedcoat. The weather isn't quite good enough for me to risk it outside so hopefully this'll do. Besides, its time for Monday night football...



By the way, this stuff is NASTY......yuk. Definately gotta have respirators and crappy clothes
