    You can make jet changes without having to remove it, so that's kinda
    nice. These carbs are mounted side saddle though. If they were inline
    you'd have to pull the carb to make a jet change.





    Not true, you just need an angle screwdriver!!

    Since 1983, this heavy scoop is held on by one center carb stud...I know it's not right but I would have to do some modification to the underside(glassed in wood) and make a new bottom plate for the 4-carb mounting studs. There's always something to do with a boat

    Scoop Base prep !
    I got the scoop base/tray from Aaron at Intake Elbows. I designed it and he turned it into reality. It is nice and thick with 4 tubes that connect to the carb base studs. So it should be strong enough to handle the riggers of circle racing. As you can see from the pics attached it is a stout unit. The problem for me was it was kind of plain. So I desided to polish it. I started with 220 sand paper smoothing out any and all protrusions. Then I smoothed the grain with 320 and worked my way all the way up to 2000. I washed with Dawn soap and then dried it. Now the real fun begain. I think I spent 4-7 hrs with NeverDull. It could use a bit more polishing, but I am done for now.
    Scoop prep !
    OK being I killed most of the day helping Tony finish up his yard, I desided to get as much done on the scoop as possible. The scoop is a Abbout Craft and the base is from Intake Elbows. I sanded the white gel to accept the metalic silver base. Once that was dry I wet sanded it with 400 and put the Cordova Brown on. It ook 3 coats to get even coloring. Then I wet sanded it again with 400. Cleaned it well. I then began striping it with gold leaf pinstriping tape. I laid the clear on thick, as I will have to wet sand it again with 600+ to have the look I am looking for. I have posted some pics of the scoop and the polished base.

    Thank you Mike and Aaron !!!
