    Magnum Missle Restoration

    Sold the green monster, time to start on the 1968 Magnum Tunnel. Here are a few "before the fun starts "pics...

    Plan is a complete deck off resto, complete with vintage gauges, steering, etc. Still has the original Foot throttle in it!!!!

    I actually reside in Louisville, KY but I can't figure out how to change my dang location. Still call Saginaw home and have only been away for a year now, I will be up in Traverse on the 15th of August and hopefully Torch, then after the weekend Long Lake in Alpena, and finally Lake Huron in Au Gres. Just need to finish this damn Hydrostream restore and repower so I can take it.

    Tom, this is exactly what I will be looking for to do my next restore. Want an old tunnel to hang my 140 inline on once I rebuild it. How hard are these to come by?

    Pulling off the old deck joint glass strips. funny how after 45 years this stuff still is a pain in the Ass to remove. Got to have a good surface when reglassing the hull to deck. Time to start on the transom patterns and order the core as well.

    Awsome is exactly the word and I have to admit, if I would have the proper set=up ( read: garage ) I would love to undertake something like that. Keep up the good work.

    I know two things that are infinite, the Universe and Human's Stupidity, although I am not sure about the first one.
