Been buffing and polishing the windshield, instrument cluster, hull etc... And yes, I had to add a decent "stern light/flagstaff" to it.I don't want a boat I can't even fly a flag on :laugh:. Windshield turned out fairly decent,but is a little cloudy. Talked to Bill Turner,son of the founder of Aristo craft. He told me I can still get the windshield new. That may happen later.Now, I'm just enjoying tinkering on it.I also took the side guide rollers off and moved the taillights/license plate down so I could actually get it in my 7'x9' garage door of my basement LOL. When I get caught up with my work,I'll see about getting on the lake. CAN'T WAIT !! :laugh:

Man I love that boat Jim, you really scored a nice one there! How cool is it to be able to still get that windshield!?!? I'm looking at a project Glastron in the Portsmouth, VA area - maybe I can bring it to you this fall if it's coming out of their (AristoCraft) Atlanta facility?

Thanks Rob,It wasn't bad,but it needed a lot of buffing and water sanding. The aluminum trim still needs help. I'll prolly take the windshield frame and side rails off this winter and strip the badly faded anodize off them and buff them to a real shine. Also do the trim on the top too. jim

Thanks Rick, the red boat is an old family member(since new),so it's not going anywhere,but I've been looking for a little newer/bigger ride with an I/O and deep Vee hull. Got to get a gas tank for it as the original has a couple rust holes in the bottom of it.jim
