Re: Seattle Barrelback progress

Robert,
While I have not done my wiring yet, I plan on running pvc through holes mid frame (on the vertical portions of the frame) to run wires fore and aft..

Does anyone have another way? Seems that 1 " should work.

watching!

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

Your build is looking really good, that walnut will look really cool! I am in a similar state as to shaping cover boards, I stopped awhile back on them because I want to put the deck on so that it all flows well. Billy C said "its best to leave a small flat for the rub rail to sit on". This has been...

exhaust hose source

Hey Folks,
I've started my search for exhaust hoses. It seems I need about 7 ft per side of 3.5 in hose.

I like the vetus stuff but cant seem to find a source that sells less than a role of 66"! can anyone help a guy out on a source that sells by the foot?

Thanks and hope you are all well!

Re: Texas Barrelback 20

psychobilly,
I cleaned it all up 3 years ago, and within a week it looked just the same, now I only clean at critical points of varnishing!

The other excuse could be, I have successfully overcome ADD and Anorexia!


How's Australia (I'm jealous)?

Re: Texas Barrelback 20

JimmyY,
I found that with my plug cutter, the longer the plug, the more it tapered and fit in the hole better.

Cutting them off with a vibrator saw is only about 2 seconds each and it doesnt matter how long they are!

Hercdrvr, Thanks!

heater hose

hey Guys,
I am re routing my coolant overflow tank to the back of the motor. I need to cut and put in 2 90 deg fittings. Any suggestion for 90 deg barbed hose fittings?

I've not found a supply yet. Considerations are brass or stainless I suppose.

Thanks again for your help!
