    The back area of this 4.3 hull filled in with the small hatch looks good,whats the price of this hull compared to a 4.1 bare hull

    "What size brush do you generally use"

    quite possibly the funniest thing I heard in a while 8O

    :-) I better keep of the turps!

    very keen to see the pics of paint process as my paint job whilst looking good is absolute rubbish, dissolving like a asprin!

    Something else happening on this build, We sold The L98 (then told Gouldy :mrgreen:)And I am going to build him a custom motor with Forged Mehale pistons/Scatt rods/ARP bolts,double roller timing set and the same cam that was in my demonstrator, we will bump the compression from 10.4 up to 10.8 (will still run on 95/96, same as demonstrator motor)It will make 530 hp and around 480ftlb of torque or better.
    Ill show the build as we go

    Here are some more pic of the painting prosess First the hull gets baked at 70deg for about 30min to get any moisture out of the alloy Next i clean it with a alloy cleaner about 5 times over to make sure that the paint can stick .This is one of the most important stages of painting an alloy boat cos alloy is a very dirty metal and if it is not cleaned properly paint will not stick.Then it gets masked up and two coats of expoxy primer put on and baked for a another 40min at 70deg
