Mine was stiff when working it back and forth on the trailer.
Once I got it on the water and under power, it was amazing!

personally i woulda run them before cutting up the boat....you did a beautiful job on the work though.  :thumbup:
I was going to do that but since I had to do a shit load of body work and paint anyway i figured it would be easier to it before it was painted.

GC.....don't do it!....  Its' not like there is PHD in skills, Besides doing the seats, this is only the second time I messed with fiberglass. Its not rocket science, I just had and problem and then an Idea of how to fix it then just read everything i can find and ask a lot of questions to people that know more then I do.

Ok, lets get to the bodywork and paint.

I would like point out that the guy in the pictures is not me, ( I'm twice as fat!) Its is my very good friend Kenny of almost 30 yrs. And without his help, his 20+ yrs. of painting experience and insanely vast knowledge of hi-perf. engines This project would never be anywhere near where its. And for that, I thank you my brother!
We started by fixing all the stress cracks that I thought where fixable and that would stay fixed and left a few that I knew would come back. I am quite fond of the original colors and the original paint scheme so I'm re-doing it exactly the same as it was. The colors were, Black & white with a dark,medium and light grey stripe.  Being that the white and gray gel's where still in very good shape and that all the body work was in the blacks we where able to mask of the gel's and re-spray the black, then un-mask the gel's and clear coat the whole thing.



Also decided to do a "quickie" cap job. And I know that there will be some that say "It wont work"...And you might be right, But we used a new Wah-Zoo  Bonder epoxy  that is designed to repair damaged fiberglass front ends on buses and semi trucks. My buddy has used this in the past with amazing success. So if it works and holds up I will look like a hero, And if not, I have a contingency plan......I will just re-install a rub rail! Problem solved!



Laying down some primer





After 3 weeks of trying to find a paint booth and several places falling thru at the last minute I finally decided do the dirty garage thing. I bagged up the garage with a shit load of plastic sheeting and used a dry swamp cooler push air threw and used the garage door to vent.



The black sealer is on!   Starting to look like something finally!

Black base coat going down......I'm starting to get excited! ;D ;D



Un-wrapped and a whole crap load of clear on it!  (almost a whole gallon) It's going to need it to be able to color sand and buff out the bugs and dirt that found its way in the clear. These are unfortunately the hazards of painting a fiberglass (lots of static) boat with black (shows every little speck) in a dirty ass garage.



A few days later we blasted it with 1000 grit first to knock off the big chunks then got after it with 2000 grit to get the 1000 grit scratches out. Then let the buffer do it's magic!



For those interested in how the cut out's for the exhaust came out.........here ya go.

 good in theory but not a good idea as it raises the humidity in the room and can greatly affect the quality of  the paint job

Floor was swept and was wet. but in Vegas when its a 100+ degrees out at 11pm :screwy: needless to say the concrete does not stay wet very long! dust was not the problem anyway, It was my ventilation system, I did not filter it well enough. All worked out good thou......Like I said before "Nothing the buffer could not fix!"
