Where you get that carby isolator from Steve?????

It doesn't look like a zen clone one...????

One thing, turn the top plate on the carby around so that the hole is at the lowest point. Stops water from gathering in side the cover.

Well I thought it was time I brushed the cobwebs off this project and carry on with it, set the motor today (C/G 30%) it's tight to get at the mount bolts at the front but it should be ok. Also trimed a bit more glass around the carb and header, might need a bit more fir the carb so I can get my bat fingers down there to choke it. Next is the flex tube support. Also got myself another to on it's way, should see it Monday or Tuesday. http://powerslideracing.com.au/index...oducts_id=2419

Had a bit of time on my hands so the boat got stripped out and a splash of paint, It will come up alot better with a wet sand and a coat of clear.

Lookin' good there Stevo.

You have been a busy guy indeed.

Me, well, I finally made it back from the bush late Xmas eve (luckily or I would've been hung, drawn and quartered).

I now have the workshop powered and lit like a xmas tree so I am good to get building again.....................I've got a million projects to catch up on now..........................let the building begin. Just didn't pick the right day to do it (yesterday @ 40*C wasnt friendly at all)

If I don't catch you beforehand, have a great new years mate (and you too Ross....................apologies I missed your text @xmas, only just turned the phone on the other arvo and promptly switched her off again as I needed a well earned break)

Stay safe gents

Johno

Thanks Johnno, Good to see you got back for xmas with the kids. i will have to come around and check out the new shed and projects sometime soon.
Got the wet sanding done today and a can (small) of clear on the top and sides. i will let it harden up for 5-7 days(says on the can) and give it a buff, should come up real nice.

Yep green again, mmmmm should I put the flowers back on?????????????????????????? I think not. Road trip to johnno's, thats a good idea, shame it's only 15 min away, I will have to drink fast.
ended up getting new engine mounts and a twin water pickup rudder off Collin, the mounts will be easer to get the motor in and out.

Oi Steve

With 40degree Heat over in WA m8 Think your clear would be as hard as a rock in 24hours I just started putting the Clear on my New Boat as well
Started on the cowl before I did the hull just to make sure, Im no great painter m8, So still learning, But your Boat looks good m8.

Henry.

Sure, we can do that once I am all settled we can have a snappy "rigger building partaaaaaaaaaaaaay"

Times are a changing, resigned from the current job this morning and moving onto different things that "should" enable me to get building again and even get pondside. A sacrifice on the pay scale (small), but that will be offset by being able to spend time with the boys (and in the shed) which is more important to me. Money isnt everything in this work, quality of life is now a big priority. Been an average 18mths with everything, but the new career should see me at home more and building

More soon

Johno
