Re: 1961 Mercury 400/450 Value

That sounds like a fair price considering the work that's been done to it. I picked up a 1965 Merc 650 for $300 with controls, not running. After refurbishing it with repaired wiring, rebuilt carbs and fuel pumps, a tune up and rebuild of the lower unit I had about $1500 into it. It runs fantastic b...

Re: Florida Malahini Build

Great progress, really coming together now! Interesting issue with the windshield, what brackets did you use and where did you get them? I wonder if the variation in the deck shape between the center and the outer brackets was a factor?

Re: Malahini from MD

You can probably do your own install but you're going to want the manufacturer's install manual/instructions. It'll have any unique set...

Re: Malahini from MD

Just catching up on this, your windshield will look fantastic, very like the Riva designs. And should be easy to make the "glass" pieces fit. Looks like a couple sheets curved to fit the frame and mostly just trimming the edge that meets the deck. Clever!

Re: Florida Malahini Build
