    None. I pulled it out back onto the front yard when the snow melted and haven't touched it yet. After I finish the wet jet project and another that's almost done (eta this week on both) I'll start tackling her,

    This project didn't get touched during my pre season project time this year (spring). The wetjet project consumed that time this year, and glad I focused on that one as I don't know how long the NOS wetjet warehouse connection will be around, so capitalized while I can.

    As long as I don't snag any projects, and I don't plan to as I'm thinning the herd exclusively to runners, this will get tackled this fall and spring!

    Yes I said fall. Due to low snow the liquid cooled sleds stayed in the trailer last season after I prepped them. So this will be the first fall where I won't spend multiple weekends prepping sleds and cleaning carbs!

    2.5 years later this project is alive and will be water worthy by memorial day. This week i have;
    Ordered a new bimini top
    Ordered 8 new grab handles to replace sun fade
    Stripped the entire hull and pressure washed her.
    Made a template from seats and seat covers. Buying vinyl.

    Pics soon...

    Coolness!
    Never argue with an idiot, they will drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.

    so previously, i stripped the hull. seats and all. today, brought out the sawzall. went from stock 2 speakers...to FOUR! New pyle waterproof setup
    also installed new bow and stern (pole light base) lights. Salt corrosion claimed the originals.
    lastly, it was missing the mesh gear bag when i aquired her. sourced a replacement from a car and installed!

    More progress today. Surprised that my new grab handles came in today. Fit and finish is perfect. Used existing mount holes and hardware, gone in the trash are the purple originals that were covered in black mold. Also, took out the goo gone and cleaned the last remnants of the decals off the top deck. Top deck is now decal residue free! Ready for fresh decals, previous owner left decal goo behind. It's clean now! Pics:
