I am build the 89-90 Circus Circus but I need some pictures under the boat. I need to build the rear ride pads but I am not sure what they look like. If anyone has pictures I would appreciate it.
I am also looking for the paint codes to. Thanks!

Steven, which Circus are you building? There's the 8200 hull that ran previously as the Atlas turbine, Miller American and Miller High Life or the 8700 hull that ran as the Miller High Life and Circus. While the boats are very similar, the cockpit areas are very different on the two boats

Just realized I typo'd the hull number on the Atlas hull in my previous post. It should have read 8401 and not 8200, which is the number for the Merlin powered boat driven by Chip Hanouer. Sorry for the error o_O

Steven,
Send a pic of your hull/cowl, to determine 8401 or 8700, I have pics.
Front nose and transom

transom pic needed, the nose pic tells me its the 8401 hull, there are a lot of variations, if I send a mixed bag of pics, It gets more confusing, 88,89.90, conventional sponsons or round Jones sponsons, rear wing design supports, ect......

Joe it’s the 8700 hull. This is an ML kit for the 8700 hull. I don’t have a picture on my phone if the transom but I can post one later today. It looks like the picture I included with the inboard skies. Thanks for the help. 1AEB9CB3-0F35-4ED0-B886-1EA421107376.png

Do you pics of the correct cowling? I need to rework the back but I am not 200 percent what one is the correct one.
