Just wanted to start this tread to see what everyone is working on. I tightened all my motor mounts, installed new flappers, and found oil all over my fuel pump. Time for a new pump I guess.

Sanding my scoop I bought from Ralph to make the mold. And looking at my roll of carbon fiber wanting to wrap everything in it.

Ran mine too damn hard at Elsinore getting in shape for the Oct 20th 21' jet boat championship. Left a brick on the pedal and played a bunch of eighties rock music, now it goes tic, tic, tic, tic at idle and clicks faster with rpm.

opened up the garage today after getting back from a wedding and looked at it.  that was about it. 

i need to go out there and figure out where/how to mount my fuel pressure regulator and maybe grab some speakers and an amp if i have time.
