B7 - imperfections....561 viewsThe one thing about that first coat of primer/surfacer is that all those little pinholes, scratches & uneven areas that were hard to see all become quite visible. Got my work cut out for me on this one but it will be right in the end. At least it's all one color ... until I start sanding again.Don Ferrette
C7 - starting first roll674 viewsHere I use a 2" plastic tube left over from my shop dust collection system install. About 3 or 4 back & forth passes then it's on to the 1" dowel rod to tighten up the roll. The key here is smooth even pressure, slow rolling and a good piece of foam which is an absolute must have. Definitely practice a few times but you will be surprised how easy this is once you get the "touch".Don Ferrette

A5 - PPG primer606 viewsSince I've reached a stopping point until the CMB motor arrives mid week I decided it's as good a time as any to lay down the colors. One light coat of PPG DP48LF white epoxy primer gives a rock solid base for PPG Concept color top coats.Don Ferrette

the Time Master has spoken.....193 viewsNow I already told you that was the time you ran, you got a problem with that? Jim Skelton was a machine running the timing gear all weekend and did a SUPER job! THANKS Jim!!Don Ferrette
C3 - the shortened cowl in place & rear wing started1073 viewsHere you can see the cowl now being fitted to match with the 4" gone off the the front of it. It is much stronger up in the front area of the cowl now with that long thin section removed. I also cut the tabbed rear vertical wing out, notched the cowl to match the tabs & tacked it in place with CA. This wing part is scratch built as I thought the boat looked naked without it.Don Ferrette

C7 - more carbon added591 viewsAdded more carbon weave cloth to the tub bottom. Even after adding the mounting pad for the tuned pipe bracket & the pedestal support for the pushrod there was still not enough strength and stiffness for my liking. With all the time & effort that goes into these it's not a bad idea to toughen them up a bit. Don Ferrette
