Evinrudes are a select breed,..............those Johnsons must populate like rabbits.

I’ll take that Evinrude cowl and make it shine in my own style. I think the motor itself has been pretty picked over but I could use the hood. It does look sad there. I could put it with my fleet of Evinrude.

Yeah! Fix up the Evinrude next! Paint something other than red and white!

I feel sorry for that poor lonely 1957 Evinrude banished to the rear behind all those beautifully restored Johnsons.

Jabe, as frustrating as it is, that is going to be one sweet lookin' Javelin when you're over this hurdle. Keep at it!

i use the cheap green painters tape, i tried the 3M, didn't find a huge difference....i do all my edging first with 1/4", flexes around radiuses real nice, then i mask off of it, trying to keep minimum tape touching the finish.........

and on a not so nice note.......i can not express my feelings on here, for the choice of words would have me banned for life.......even the missus is steering clear of me today........
i know what happened, i thought i had sanded down far enough, but there was some residue of some of the first clear coat i used to seal the first coat........respraying activated it and lifted the new coat of bronze...........crap happens.....
going out to uncover Oscar, to put a smile on my face...... i will deal with the cowl issue another day


Neil. This is a minor setback for you. We've seen your work.
