As most of you know Jimpen and me have been tackling the task of the winter winger redo's. I am not going as far as Jimpen with repainting my boat but I am in the process of rerigging and powder coating. I have decided to buy a nitrous motor for the boat which was formally Andy Ralls winger motor built by "The Bostick". Here are some previous pictures of the boat and pictures of parts and building process. Will keep this thread updated as the process continues.  Enjoy!

We got it off a demo job. If you look close it was actually a Tudor that was cut a shortened before I got it. Body was so rough I figured I couldn't make it worse so I did a 4.5 chop to it and built the frame. It's on my to do list but gonna be a while before it get momentum. Lol

Here are some pics like I said this is a project that was barely started.
We got it off a demo job. If you look close it was actually a Tudor that was cut a shortened before I got it. Body was so rough I figured I couldn't make it worse so I did a 4.5 chop to it and built the frame. It's on my to do list but gonna be a while before it get momentum. Lol

"RTCP"

That is going to be one fun project! I've seen a lot of these Rat Rods and love how each one is unique in their own way. Can't wait to see when you start working on it.

Don't forget to post pix when you do! Thanks for sharing brotha!

ha thanks! Was a rough couple days. Seemed like every step forward we went two steps back, but I was really happy with everything, had no wiring issues except forgetting to hook up fuel pump ground and  fuse for the nitrous. Went to go start it for the first time and started right up with timing right on 36*. Gotta button up the wiring and should be set to test in 2 weeks. 👍👍

That's great to hear, new to this as well. Father was in it back in the 70's & 80's when my Grandmother was alive living in Parker. 2nd generation boat ... Dad bought it brand new from the LA Boat Show in 76' ... So I have the actual display boat from that show. All original just need a full resto. (Weather beaten, floor rot, metal flake faded, ect. It's a 76' Anthony (Not to many out there) Jacuzzi Jet WJ and a 455 Olds ... Obviously I'll be ripping most of it out. I want a Berk with a 454 BBC.

So I'll be hoping to dump some stuff when I start ripping everything out.

I'll take all the help I can get! In the process to have all the paperwork transferred over, Dad can't find the titles but are in his name. Going to have it transferred over to me soon.

Ok let's try this again, hopefully I got this fuel issue handled, just added bleeds to both regulators, added a extra 40 micron filter before regs, drilled and tapped Y for pressure before regulators, and switch to magnafuels lighter return spring to get pre-reg fuel pressure down to 20 psi. And getting carb gone through before next test. I hope I have this fixed I wanna hit that lil blue button so bad!!!!

Ok well I hopped on the band wagon of the "who's gonna have the nicest gullwing this year" trend. After going through all of 2016 watching everyone with there projects I really started to feel down on mine. It's really needed paint for about 2 years and we all know as we see better ideas needed to be rerigged. And I have a brand new motor coming for 2017. I have a lot of new ideas for this year. Not gonna spill all the beans but boat will be blue again but will have a lil something extra as well. But for now this is what I have accomplished so far.

💁🏼 boat is almost done. As most of you know jimmy todds dad painter mike painted the boat. Boat will have all new rigging, electronics, and actual horsepower compared to most of you guys on the list. Rigging will be done by nick at madskillz, all plumbing/wiring will be me. Pump will be done by Chris at b1 along with the calgo conversion. James is building a 14:5:1 555 dual dominator deal. Shooting to be done by/around may. Hoping to run the TE/9.0 or whatever the new adba index will be with lil to no nitrous. I'll keep the thread updated as things progress. I alsobam going dark side and doing dolly trailer and enclosed. Boat will see plenty of river time this year but will be rigged primarily to race.

Gotcha. Yeah I fought with that with my new deal. I had gotten some 14:1 Pistons with the block but they weren't any good and I just didn't want to have to run C12 or higher.
