Vintage Dumas Hotshot Sprint resto

Post by coxbros1 »

Bought this vintage piece on ebay earlier this spring, havent had much time for it but finally got started. It came with a 7.5cc k&b outboard but didnt run right, so it got sold for new vintage 3.5cc k&b outboard. The engine had to be fitted with a custom made plate to mount it to the boat as the holes for the 7.5cc were much wider. The engine in pic is the 3.5cc unit fitted to the boat. Painted it with classic laquer then clear coated

Cool! Love the old Nitro Outboard boats. I have a Prather Lap Cat II with a 7.5 K&B I'm slowly restoring right now.

Looks great, as does the display! I look forward to wrecking and sinking that boat when the weather warms up! 8)

If a jobs not worth doing then its certainly not worth doing well.
