    While the pump is out.................

    Any of you that has done this, will know the work involved,it is the rough version before I polish it inside...then a layer of Zinc Phosphate ,then the epoxy paint...I would leave it polished but the salt water here loves to eat alluminum...

    Thanks Billy and John, Billy with our salt ,I believe there would be a huge sacrifice.....LOL.. Billy I glassed the impeller (14/20), and it looks perfect.....I think you will agree it puts the correct finish on them, and the small marks are completly removed, when you do them ,call me I will remove the marks.....if you want....

    It would be very interesting to place the stock stator housing on a flow bench ... take reading ... do mods you've just done and re-flow to see the difference ?

    Nice work !

    What colour are you painting it ?? YAMMY BLUE is the fastest colour on the planet !!!

    Is this to say that you blasted it with glass beads? If that's the case and it's an improvement... well hell, I'm all set up to do that.

    Crazy...yes it is blasted with glass, it might improve the flow in the chop a little ,for me it was mostly done for a repaint, , the color is black, it is just easier for me to find black epoxy, and on an all red ski I think it looks better, just did my tilt ring,convergence nozzle, extended nozzle,and impeller housing last night, just waiting on some time to paint them.
