    Yes , that’s the plan . I think she deserves it after a long hard life lol . Within the next few months or end of next season is when I bite the bullet and strip her down and all new stringers , bulk head and new gel or paint . Just got a fresh block for the new build and on the lookout for those mechanical stacks .

    All of those pics were from 2 different events. One was ‘85 or ‘86 and the other ‘88. Both at Firebird raceway. Looks like the numbers were green at one time and blue at another.

    I messaged one of John's best friends so we'll see what he says. I would imagine Riverbottom knows about your boat and certainly gottaminute.
