Just finished my Penn 706z. Packed with grease and ready to hit the surf. Wasn't happy with the paint on the 704 so i decided to do it over. Hopefully she'll be ready in ten days or so. Will put up pics then.

Wow RJ, those are beauty's, i'm about to buy a 710 greenie and am going to do that exact penn-staal look.

One question for you, what was the process you took to remove the paint? Paint remover then sand or what?

Did you drill the holes then dremel between them? That was my plan of action...

i forgot to mention, those things look efing SWEEEET!!! Awsome job dude, some of the best looking penn-staal's i've seen!!!

Thanks Ghilie. Use the paint stripper to take off the top coat.The primer will not come off so a wire brush head on a drill is needed. Don't press too hard, you only wanna take off the primer. In any case you have to sand it smooth. I'll put up a pick what they should look like. Once the material is clean (wear gloves) i washed it with degreaser, rinsed off with very HOT water, and soaked in acetone spining it around now and then. Let it hang dry and repeated the process. Primer, paint, clear coat. When spraying stay light on the bottom lip of the spool, the inside of the rotor cup, and the area on the bottom of the rotor where the bumper fits in.

I'll post on drilling a little later. Something's up with my camera. Color's weird!

I suggest a drill press for doing all this. Drillling the spool is easyer than the rotor but always work with a template before milling out the metal. Ricksky sent me some templates wich were priceless for this job. Thanks again Rick! PM me your e-mail and i'll forward them to you. Even though they're measured for 704, they can be adjusted to fit any size. Main thing to keep in mind is Balance. What you do on one side you do on the other to keep it balanced properly. Using a soft measuring tape, measure the size in MM from one ear to the other. Divide that by the number of slots you want to mill out and make a template. Using small pieces of scotch tape, tape the template to the rotor and adjust until it's even and centered. Apply elmers glue to template and glue to the rotor. Let the glue dry a few hours so it won't slip. Using a center punch, mark the points on the ends a few times with center punch and then mark some more between them. This will guide you when you mill. You want the holes on the ends larger than the middle ones. Open the middle by working the drill bit on an angle(connect the dots), just make sure they're in a straight line. Use the grinding stone on the dremel tool to make your points(ends) to the desired size. Afterwards with a small fine file and then a bastard, open up the middle to the same width as the ends. Use the tape measure to measure the space between the slots and make sure they're even. Take your time! There's no room for error. If it gets stressfull at any time, walk away and go back to it later, this is where mistakes are made!
Feel free to contact me with any questions as you go along. Last pic, bottom side of the rotor you can see where i milled out just the aluminum by the counterweight without loosing any lead to keep it balanced.

Here is my 650SSm i messed around with, didn't have access to a drill press at the time, so it was all with a hand drill/measuring tape, no template so it isn't the prettiest of sorts but i wanted to try my hand at it before a touch my 710.

As for my 710 i will have a drill press and make a template (already made)

Rj, questions for you how do you measure for the holes on the cup?

Do you mean the drain ports on the bottom of the rotor cup?

Is the inside of the rotor cup ribbed on the bottom or is it flat? If it's flat than Ricksky's templates will be ideal for a precise measurement, if it's ribbed it's gonna be a little work but i'll guide you.

It is flat. Will the 704 template fit a 710? Secondly, does the counter weight come out? I unscrwed the screw that was in it, so i figured it has to come out, mabey i need more elbow grease?

Thanks for the help man.

704 template is a PDF file so it can be altered to larger or smaller when you print it out or you can do it manually with a geometric compass. I haven't worked on a 710 yet but it's the next size down from 704 so it shouldn't be a problem. I adjusted the 704 template to do my 706 and it worked good as you can see. The counterweight should not come out but i might be wrong. Don't force it. If you can, post a pic so i can have a look.
