    Boostaholic's GPRXP

    If you dont know I am building a second GPRXP because I sold the first one I built last summer. Joe sold me a 2000 GPR hull he was planning on building but things changed. I had it shipped for Califorina to Alabama. The hull has following things already done:
    Pump tunnel reinforced
    updated hull inserts
    Hull has been cut for the RXP motor to fit
    Stainlees Steal motor mounts from Hydrotoys

    Well its here and the work already has begun Joe sold me a great starting point and now it's up to me to take the ball and run with it. Oh yea if you ever buy a hull from Joe Make sure he throws in the FREE WET and smelly Power Ranger Beach towel

    As I have always done I will post pictures of the progress. Here are a couple of them.

    I am undecided on doing a theme ski or just a niece paint job I am going to need some suggestion on this... any ideas?

    The plan for the ski is to get the motor in and alligned and tested then start modifing it from there as I found out on the last build it was a pain trouble shooting the conversion and the unproven mods. Yes Mark you were right I should have done it that way from the start , but live and learn. I should see my driveshaft from Ted anyday now.

    Spoke to Ted today and my drive shaft should be ready by the end of the week so hopefully soon can get this project kicked into high gear.

    Talking

    does the beach towell mod add lateral stability? Or is it for torsional strength? Does the liquid help lubricate the cable housings? Will these be massed produced like the couplers? Or is there a special mixture to get the right aroma for internal combustion engines to ingest for proper flame front generation to enhance piston wash ?

    Cool beans Scott! Your gonna be a conversion pro now! They say, second time around is better

    Are you gonna call it the "ACME Waterbourn Assault Rocket"?

    You gotta use ACME, its where all of Wile E.'s gadgets came from.
