Got the controls installed through hood. Modded exhaust mani and routed to thru hull. Had a waterbox cut and fit but the welder I had lined up wanted way too much to lay a few beads so I'll get a waterbox on it later once I see everything works good. Almost ready for watertest but still need to secure topdeck to hull and install a couple of clamps and hoses. Been so long since I had the topdeck on, it's starting to look like a blaster again

I'm not trying to continue on with this same thread because the stock hull blaster build is over with. I did not give up but just made it alot better. The lightweight mod hull is awesome.... super light and it was bagged/infused so its super strong. Bottom is very different from a stock hull. Redesigned alot of things on the inside also..... driveline, turbo setup, motor mount plates etc. Also got a wamilton hood/seat combo to run on it. I didn't do any work on it over the summer since my free time was spent racing but I've got alot done the last few weeks. BTW, that is just the initial layer of epoxy on the motor mount plates. Still a bit of work to do in that area - I know it looks like a mess right now.

If you want to follow along with the NEW and improved build, follow @BuiltNotBoughtRacing on Instagram. It is easiest for me to post there since I don't have to host pictures, copy links, etc.

Dont do instagram. No idea who is who and impossible to find friends unless you see a pic of them or you hit up ever friend and say "What is your instagram name." Its bad enough with screen names here and then on facebook and you dont know who is who sometimes.
