    Best on the deliverable. Thanks for the update.

    Yes, it’s for the engine cover. This wouldn’t fit inside the original hole with out some light file work in the fiberglass.

    I was thinking the same thing about the holes and finishing them but I’d need a drill press. Locating the holes needs to be done before the chamfers. I’m going to add the holes before the chamfers next print and hopefully figure out which screw size they are. I’m going to shave some areas to speed up the total time hopefully.

    The printer is a Creality10s and you can really adjust the quality or precision of the print but at a huge increase in print time. This was 24 hours.


    Im using up some old PLA I had loaded for the prototypes, a role of the PETG is supposed to be UV resistant so that will be what the actual part will be made of.

    This is for the engine cover, correct? It looks really good so far, nice work. For holes, would it be simpler/higher quality to machine after print using the small holes as pilot holes? That way you could easily add a chamfer as well to countersink the screw heads. I don't know how accurate the 3D printer can be in this regard.

    I think '81 was a transition year. IIRC some newer (squared windshield (deluxe?) boats) were sold as well as the rounded windshield boats of earlier years. So, two different vents.
