    Re: Westcoast Themed 550

    The house search is taking up most my time. I did get to work on it a little Friday. I basically pulled the engine out. All I can say is geez it is so dirty In There. And engine has corrosion on it. Gonna need to clean motor and hull good.

    Hopefully it cleans up nicely. Any tips on cleaning up engine components? I also need to grab some thick stainless washers and chrome acorn nuts.

    Re: Westcoast Themed 550

    Any one?

    So I got my stuff back from Chris Newmiller today it's clean. I'm gonna paint the flywheel red so it won't rust. Tomorrow night I'm going to TRY and assemble the westcoast motor if the paint drys, isn't it'll be Wednesday or Thursday.

    Re: Westcoast Themed 550

    Also ideas Please on color. the head, Exhaust pipe, Waterbox are blue*, starter and Mounts are red* Cylinder, Intake, Exhaust Mani are Silver* Cooling lines are Most likely gonna be red and Fuel lines Blue.
    Whats left are the E-Box, Bed Plate, Fly cover, and Cases that need paint. Any sugestions?

    Re: Westcoast Themed 550

    I'm doing a similar project and purchased a $100 bench grinder style buffer on Amazon to polish all my Aluminum parts to a chrome like finish. Its a lot of work but they look pretty sweet when they are done. So far I have done the ebox, fly wheel cover, ex. mani, pipe and plan to do the cylinder and possibly the case. There are a lot of photos in the vintage PWC gallery to give you ideas. The pictures below are the look I'm shooting for... I think one of the picture is from Mr. Ski westcaost build.JPG IMG_1273 (1).jpg
