Decided to get a flatty again, just a beater, trying to have it done for the Parker SoCal thing. Bought it cheap had to convert it to left side steer, cleaning it up a little bit and dropping a 598 pump gas Chevy in it

Got the dash done and painted, I still have to color sand it and buff it

Sending all of the parts to competition coatings for powder coating and to Juan to get polished, I should be able to start bolting stuff in for good next week, also going to pick up the engine this weekend

I got the cav stuff and everything else mocked up, then stripped everything down to go get it powder coated and polished, and so I can finish the work on the hull, 3 more weeks until the SoCal thing in Parker and I still have a shit load of work to do on it, hopefully I get it done

Didnít hit 90 because the bitchen billet carb on it doesnít work on boats apparently, but everything went great, boat handles good no leaks and no issues, we had it out Saturday in Parker and then Sunday in Havasu. Ordered a 1250 dominator and should be back on the water next week, definitely not going out this weekend

What was wrong with the billet carb?  I have one on my boat and works like a champ.

Itís a single barrel, pro systems. They are meant for nitrous cars or tractor pulls. I talked to the guy at Pro systems he said they donít have a mid range circuit to them only high and low, they are meant for on or off no in between.
