    Clean looking boat! Get in contact with L&L marine. They can make one for you of you can call finneys and see if they could hook you up. Where do you boat at? I would love to see that boat in person. I boat out of Big River all year long.

    One draw back to the lexan splash guards is the melting you getwhen running dry. I melted mine.

    Aluminum is the way to go. Below are pix of my brothers.

    All white.

    Seems kinda late for paint. The entire boat is rigged and ready to go, not the time to be painting on the boat.

    Tre runs a ford. Mine started melting when I was running jet hot coated headers. I will be out next year. I am actually pulling the boat apart and getting everything but the hull in the garage. I am adding entrapment and may cut the pod for a popoff.

    Very nice TD, congrats. Looks like your just over the hill from me. I'm in Nuevo. Have you had it in the water yet? What power & #'s are you seeing? The white definatley gives it the clean look.

    We wash our parts in gasoline,
    We drink Alcohol,
    And we go racing with Nitro-Methane!

    if you can't find any one in cali, give bergeron engineering in mesa, az a call, that is where i got the one for my daytona, decent price and great product, has been on the boat for about 4yrs and only a very, very small melted spot (about the size of a quarter) and my headers are less than 3 inches off the shield on the sides.
