    Hold my beer and watch this...

    So this will be my build thread for my X2 build. Don't expect quick progress, or professional how-to's since this is my first shot at fiberglass work.

    Early this season I noticed my hull was completely split around the rear bond line, all the way across. I swapped my motor / pump into a spare hull I had, and decided this ski needed to be chopped up. It weighed noticeably more then my other hulls due to the amount of wet foam at the rear.

    Here's a breakdown of what I'd like to accomplish:

    10-12" chop
    Move pump ~7" forward
    Relocate steering 5" backwards
    Relocate Fuel tank behind engine
    Relocate Battery towards center of ski
    Flat Decked
    Rear exhaust, inline silencer
    Blaster Mod or NYNJA chamber

    The goal of all this is to basically empty the front of the ski, condense the center of mass, and build something that's totally different then any current build.

    I expect the ski to ride very nose high, be worthless in a straight line, and want to rotate while jumping (See where I'm going here?)


    Progress so far:

    Top deck chopped off, ski completely de-foamed, pump section chopped out

    More to come when I get a chance to work on it again!

    Re: Hold my beer and watch this...

    I have gone mad, but what else was I going to do with a spare hull with a ton of wet foam! I've got cutting tools, and plenty of beer, so I've got that part covered.

    Time to start ordering some materials. I'd like to use West System Epoxy. Anyone have any recommendations on what to order? I've never done any fiberglass work, but I've got a pretty good idea on the process. I also need to get my hands on some shorter driveshafts. I think I want to tailor the pump location to a 650SX shaft, but I need to pick one up before I decide.

    Gonna be slow going, but it'll get done eventually.
