    Default New rug for cave

    I picked a hot Mofo day to remove the old carpet and install the new rug…
    Started out easy enough. All the old crap came out easy, way too easy. Then I brushed the whole dam floor with a stiff brush then scrapped the floor with a painter’s scrapper. Next I cleaned the whole floor with Acetone. Still got a buzz from that. Then brushed the floor again. It was so clean that I almost wanted to lay some parquets down but it’s already heavy. Filled all the holes that were there from the many seat repositions. Added some glass and mat to a few areas too. Dam wake boats…
    Here are a few pics of the progress as of 4:11 pm AZ time. I had to get out of the sun for a bit












    Should be ready fro Saguaro Sunday

    Yup, thanks 71Hallet and my pockets have lightened up too

    I now want a bigger blower and maybe a bigger engine. Say 575 blown. But I'm going to take it easy on this engine for a while. I think i can break it real quick. I need to just enjoy the view from the seat. I told Keith & Ty that I'm stoked at where I'm at with the boat. Marqo already know this. I guess the interior and new hatch is prolly gunna get done this winter. We'll see what the year brings.

    I make too much for welfare but don't make enough for a bailout or Million dollar bonus.

    Yea its gettng close to a year now.lol. But it would really help out now. With the higher revving I'm getting allot of oil out of the breather.

    I had to replace 3 quarts and most of that was on the floor. I also have a valve cover leak. a Good one but only when the engines warm. I hate these exhaust manifolds. I cant get to the bolts without removing the manifolds.

    Little Ern owes me a free vacuum clean up. Thanks pal for the crumbs lol... Just Kidding Bigern, he picked them up.
