    That one must be the Stealth model, very rare from what I've been told.

    it had a jg pump in it but i took it out and put it in my outlaw. i also installed a 460 with a 3 point mount but took it out yesterday to install the pump back in. while digging around my shop i had picked up 3 different rail mount set ups so i decided to install one, then while digging around for all the parts i found a bunch of other parts to install in it. its going to get a bbc and the 460 either sits for awhile or goes in my 67 mustang. i will post pictures as it goes together.

    Wet sand then buff it out with a high peed and some Macguires cutting compound progressiively getting finer. The coarseness is on the front of the bottle and Pep boys carries it. Thehigh speed you can get from harbor freight and the buffing pads you can get at any auto paint place. That is how I cleaned up the gell on M$.

    a few of the guys on the board make kits, or you can do like i did and buy a used one. In this case i bought a couple sets and just mixed and match. the whole thought of this boat is to use as many of the parts i have bought through the years and build it. aka spare parts is the name of the boat
