Steps to re-store Custom Weld Storm
1. Fly to Maryland
2. Rent a truck, pick up boat and head North to Niagara Falls. Spend at least 20 minutes there and head across the country to Boise.
3. Take boat out for test run since you did not do it in Maryland
4.Have stick steer installed and impellor built up by Matt at Inland Marine.
5. Install CB and speaker
6. Take it Hunting and cover thouroghly in blood
7. Replace old wore out top by the guys at Custom Covers (behind Canyon Marine)
8. Have your buddy Eric ( first timer )Strip the stickers and the paint off of sides and back and repaint her
9. Order new graphics and install, then call Eric again to do them right
10.Get a case of beer, acid wash the bottom half of the hull, drink the beer and start polishing for 2 days straight !

Nice!!! You do realize however that they make those Storms right here in Idaho....just saying.
Or is there a hidden meaning behind “Niagara”?

Beautiful job on that boat. It looks GREAT. Now, let's get busy with the wheels on the trailer. I'm thinking something in a nice, polished aluminum. :lol:

Yes the trailer definitely needs some love, hopefully the new owner will handle it. I was thinking black trailer and wheels with some chrome lug nuts!

Do you have a favorite polish? I just used some 3m stuff last winter but couldn't get quite to that shine.

Thanks
