Then primer and first paint, from good old Wall-Mart with a roller and brush no spray.
Then the stringers...
A short brake.....
My dad did help with some glass work and such before paint that needed to be done, but other then that how did I do for my first time re-doing the inside of the Hydro and doing it on a budget??? Look good enough?
Oh I all so added clear on it last night as well. But I have no pic of that step so sorry to you all, you will have to see Yellow Fang at the lake Fathers Day the rest of the way.

If the motor on the stand in front of you is going in it, youv'e chosen the right brand!
whats the deal with the fineline in the background?
Pretty proud of my son on his '64 Lavey hydro. He has not had much money to work with and rather than just me running out and buying him the best chit to work with, we have had a goal to build a nice old school one of a kind lake boat that is built with labor and creativity, paid for by him. The biggest goal had been keeping the cost down. When I run the numbers, I think he will be UNDER $2000 when he is done
Oh, and he can say he built it Not bad for a 1st boat
Nice job. My son will be starting one of these style projects in about 8 months himself. What type of paint did you use on the inside? Is it oil / gas resistent?
N.R.K.A. CEO of the Needles River K Association.....The largest "K" boat assoc in the WORLD. 30 boats strong & growing.
And the #1 backer of " EASON " for President.
The clear is somewhat oil resistant, but not sure on the fuel . . . probably not . . . I think he will have to add something later. What he used is still better that just the paint or the old flaking off house paint that was there. Is there a product out there that is reasonably priced?
Thanks again, looking forward to seeing you at CFW
I don't know what Bret used but I know that Home Depot has some garage floor paint that's pretty tough. I painted the floor of my enclosed trailer about 3 years ago and it's held up good. It's had oil on it and some spilled fuel. I think if it sat on there for any length of time it would probably come up. But it would be a great alternative to some of the expensive stuff. I really like the softer satin type sheen. It shows alot less imperfections that these old boats have. The shiney gloss shows every little thing on the floor.
