Howzit guys, slow progress so far.

Been sanding the outboards as there is no rush, I have decided to paint the outboards and deck in 2K white.
I have bought a cheapish Air Sprayer as I dont have a big enough compressor to spray with but I'm certain it will do the Job.
the more I sand the more depressed I get with the rusted bolts, I really want to get the power units off so I can clean and paint properly.
But there is no way I'm gonna get those bolts out without breaking a few off.
Am looking at induction heating coils to get those bolts nice and hot then maybe try loosen them.
I took off the skeg guards to find some serious corrosion down on the skegs. have cleaned them up nicely.

one of the outboard, see the previous owner simply painted over the original sticker near the gearbox, under the cowling there is no paint.

I would really like to get the powerheads off so I can remove the cowlings and clean and paint everything properly but looking at these I think thats really not gonna happen.
Both motors have good compression and start and run fine, so I think I will clean and strip off as much as I can.
it just means the end job wont be as good as I want. but the outside will be fine.
I'm still thinking of building a induction heater and getting those bolts red hot.
but we will see how things progress.

I would just want to built an induction coil because they are so cool! And you can smelt alu and copper and have all sorts of fun and did I mention how cool they are! So cool, I want one! :) Come on build one and show us how you did it.. Then use it to make spoons, whatever!

My friend has a digital induction coil that is the best thing I have ever tried for its purpose, ever..hands down. Haha He got it direct from California but it's for a completely different unrelated application.
