Re: faded sesnich prop

I want my prop to look as good as my airboat does. I would care so much if my AB look like a POS but I spent the money to make them look like new and they didn't last like I was told.

Re: faded sesnich prop

I have been buffing with compound. The issue I'm having now is that the dura skin looks like it's coming off. really didn't look closely at the props when they were on the AB but now I can inspect them closer as they are sitting on my table.

Re: faded sesnich prop

Has anyone had a issue with the dura skin fading because mine have. I called and they said to use rubbing compound then wax them but it doesn't work. It's a shame I paid all that money to have the dura skinned and it's right back to what they looked like before

Re: Picked up a caddy.

If you're going to rebuild it and you got your eyes on the crank, the simplest way is look for a "D" cased up in the front of the crank. If it's a "D" it's a 500, if's a "N" it's a 472 fastest way to id them. One Eye Gator gave you the link to ID the crank with the casi...
