    Just found the Rhaas units and may order them. Just completed the finish on the upper hull and it looks great. Will work on the hood and trim pieces next. Fťrrea racing valves and new viton seals are on the way for the head. Hydroturf is finishing yo my custom mats and seat cover.

    Rhaas is who I would use, I have theor mounts for my seadoo motors and js550. They are lifetime warranty. They also make the thru hull carrier bearing

    i already have the TBM through hull bearing plate and a full oem rebuild kit to go with it for now. The only problem with rhaas is they say they won’t ship to me. I tell you, getting stuff shipped out here is an annoying process.
    If the seller uses ups or fedex shipping tools than it’s considered international and is extremely expensive. Usps is a domestic service for us but sometimes it’s hard to get a seller to use them. Flat rate boxes and priority mail are our friend. There is no mail delivery service here either. When a package comes in you have to go stand in line for about an hour. A lot of sellers don’t want to ship to our P.O. Box either but since there is no mail delivery, there is no physical address for shipments.

    Cleaned up the main wiring harness including all connectors and replaced all the tape with quality 3m super 33+. Installed the freshly cleaned fuel tank and styrofoam cradle along with fuel filler neck. Then I started cleaning up all the trim pieces that will have the accent color on them. The hood, side trim, valve cover and exhaust trim ring will all get the accent color. Lots of prep work to get these panels looking good. Removed all the decals and then stripped off all the adhesive. Went over all the pieces with 320 grit and will hand sand with 400 before painting. Also using dominion sure seal adhesion promoter on the plastic pieces.

    On another note, I checked the rest of those motor mounts and was able to fairly easily rip out the threaded insert piece by hand. Iím really not impressed with these oem mounts. The one I repaired is holding very strong. At this point I trust it far more than the original mounts. The 3m window weld really does work for motor mounts and has been used for several years to repair and fabricate motor mounts. Iíll keep checking for other options but I feel more comfortable with my repaired/modified mount than another set of used mounts.

    Just ordered some monkey grip motor mounts. I prefer them over the rhaas because they are softer and will absorb more impact/vibration. They are supposed to be much stronger than oem.

    Just finished up the last of the paint work. Really pleased with how everything turned out. Took a long time to finish all these plastic pieces. Once all decals and edges I’ve were removed I sanded them and preped the panels with adhesion promoter. Then I sealed the panels and shot several super thin layers of base for quick flash and better adhesion. Then mixed clear with hardener and about 20 percent leftover paint. Shot 5 coats of mixed clear.

    Paint looks flawless. It should be impressive when you get it back together.

    Just received a large parts shipment. Also picked up some green loctite for the pump liner. Should lock in the ring and prevent corrosion from forming. With the green loctite which is rated at 3000psi, I don’t plan on installing that tiny retaining screw again unless absolutely necessary. I’m installing the worx grate and may get the worx sponsons also since I only ride on the open ocean and sometimes it gets very tough even though it’s calm when we leave. Building this ski with ultimate reliability in mind overall (these engines are all ready plenty reliable but can use a few tweaks). Got the kawi performance crank cooler and double sealed crank bearing. The new crank bearing cooler has threaded holes for the cooling line barbs vs the cast/pressed in ones that get all corroded.
