    The building of DA BITCH!!!!!

    So I finally decided to do a conversion ski. For anyone that decides to do this here is one important advice I can give: Read everyones threads. Look at all their pictures. Thanks to all those before me as I have learned a lot from all of you.
    I got my motor mounts and drive shaft setup from Addicted (Mike). Nice guy to deal with and was quick on delivery. Thanks Mike.
    Mark (Hydrotoys) you are da man, without you none of this would have even became applicable. To be honest, when I thought of doing this project, I never knew so much had to go into it. So thank you for everything.
    So here are some pics of the ski. I did the hull cuts, fiberglassed it in, the painted the inside with a white epoxy teflon paint. Slip and slide. I am using the rxp gas tank and will be using the big black airbox that goes on its side as well.
    Enjoy the pics and I'll post some more up.

    NICE

    I suggest moving the MPEM bracket to the side, it help with the slack on the wiring harness

    What you mean by the slack on the wiring harness?
    I have already rivoted it in, but just curious. I have to go get another set of rivots to rivot the mpem into the wall as I forgot that the upper holes were for the mpem studs.
    I am going to run the black box that goes on top of the gas tank. I can run the wiring harness through it and keep it nice and neat up front.

    Personally, I like it better up front. Especially if you run stock trim.

    Also,
    before you put your fuel tank in... see those rear straps? Shibby cut that bracket into 2 pieces, and was able to place that bracket so that the straps sit straight on top of the fuel tank.

    This is not needed, The bracket mpem works perfect upfront, not sure why you had issue's!

    Looking good bud! Tell me more about that epoxy teflon paint.. . Personally I dont understand painting the inside of the hull, because you can't see it once everything is installed, but slippery epoxy based paint on the outside would make the ski really easy to keep clean
