Re: 1959 CC Ski 18'

So are we estimating that most of the early v-8 runabouts are being run with the gauge running one side of the engine and monitoring that? I'm not seeing many red lights or second temperature gauges. Bout to launch mine after years and was planning to monitor with a laser spot pistol. Anyone put a s...

Re: Windshield Molding

Auto windshield shops have catalogs as well as stock many types of windshield rubber mounting rubber. Find an old shop as older cars and trucks used various types to fill the voids. Thats where I found mine.

Re: Stainless Rub Rail

I do like the idea behind the Vix bit, the rail will be going into new wood and I hadn't given it much thought about perfect centering. Thanks everyone for all the ideas. I will go with #6 Stainless oval heads which is what I had planned.

Stainless Rub Rail

so you buff your rub rail to a mirror finish or in my case not so mirror :( Do you go with CP silicone bronze screws or Stainless to match the rail??
