    Update on winter project

    Hey eveyone. I was just wanting to give a little update to those who were interested in my winter RXP project. Everything is going well and I just finished the strip down to send it off for paint and some slight body work. Now all thats left is to dump my pay check into it for the next four months and she should be up and running by April. WOOHOO!!! Cant wait for the warm weather.

    Im going gloss black on the bottom and top half of the hull. The accents will be a gloss neon green. Its going to be different thats for sure. I still have a lot of parts to order though before i can start the rebuild.

    I ordered it from Wamiltons. They definitly did a great job making the hood.

    Just giving a little update on my winter project. I just dropped her off at the body shop friday to have some fiber glass repair done and to have her painted. As far as goodie parts go I have bought the Wamiltons carbon fiber hood, Riva sposons, full UMI steering system, Power filter kit, BOV kit, and Rear exhaust system. Im looking at having it all back together within the month so even though its cold out I think im going to go make some passes with it in the cold water to see what kind of speed i can get out of it. I also think im going to fill the ride plate holes to see if I can get a little more speed out of it. Wish me luck.

    Hey everyone. Just giving another update on my winter project. I have all my parts in and im just waiting on the paint and body guy to get done with it so i can get it home to reassemble it. Heres a few pics of it at the shop. And BTW, i decided to go with a Ferrari red on the accents instead of neon green. There is alot more painting left to do.

    Thanks for the comps. Here is the latest paint work. Hood still needs the clear coat applied but you get the general idea of the paint scheme. The only other things left to be painted red are the side chrome pieces. Everything else will be black.
