Hey guys,
Brand new member here. Ordered my first MC yesterday. Below is a pic of the paint scheme/colors I went with...but I can change these up until 3/5. I was thinking about making the bullseye orange....let me know what you think. Would appreciate any input...

icewake,
Think an orange bullseye would look good? I'm thinking it may because the orange splash would be on the front area of the charcoal transom....

Nice boat color, I think the bullseye orange would look good it would kinda flow from the MC logo infront of it...

Thanks ShamrockIV, I did go with the orange trailer for sure! I'm thinking more and more that the orange bullseye will look good...

Oh, forgot to mention, the interior accents will be orange and titanium, no black.

that really is a gorgeous color scheme. i just ordered an 08 xstar to replace my 05 xstar. my 08 looks just like my 05 with the exception of the graphics. i got a viper red and black switch. red bottom hull, black side hull and red lower deck with a white upper deck. red and/or black comprised approximately 50% of '08 xstars manufactured from july 08through october of 08. i think red and/or black always has a good resell value. that being said, your boat is as pretty as anything as i've ever seen and certainly has that "wow" factor. good luck and i hope you enjoy it for a long time.

Thanks Ole Miss Rebels -
I did consider the fact that the orange may hurt my resale ability down the road...but just couldn't pass up the orange.

Very nice looking boat. Welcome to the forum. I think the orange bullseye would look good. I would rethink the dark orange interior, though. It looks great, but I've found with my black interior, the areas under the seats and such look crappy quickly. Of course when it is spiffed up, it looks great.

My only advice would be to not get orange on the inside. I had an all navy blue out and in with a white rear 06 X2 and the inside shows scratches in the high traffic areas worse than white would. That's just my 2 cents. great looking boat you will love the the x2 it is a great boat.

I personally love the color scheme! A friend of mine had an orange boat and he said that the bees wouldn't leave them alone! Guess they thought it was something to pollinate or something? Anyone else had that experience?

You can get an 01 painted on the side like this boat for the General Lee theme.

I like the orange.

Rodecker, Nice looking boat. Where in the Mountain west are you?

Nice looking boat! I would personally go with the orange bullseye, and then an orange trailer to tie everything together. It's kind of the same deal as our boat, switching the black and white. Putting orange on the hull in a graphic brings it together with the deck, and in my opinion having orange in the interior looks great.

Hey Lanier. I'm in Denver. I hit some small lakes around here and do trips to Navajo (Souther CO/Northern NM) and Glendoe and Guernsey in Wyoming. How about you?

I totally agree with this. I saw my dealer's demo boat that was colored on the inside after a boat show and it had scratches everywhere inside from people climbing in and out of the boat.

I was trying to say this in my posts as well. You will never avoid scratching the inside no matter how careful you are. In my 197, the seats will scratch the black where they sit on the fiberglass.

Of course they will get buffed out, and the colored deck looks great.

What about orange hull and white top deck? Also orange bullseye?

With the snap in/out carpet I have found most people end up preferring the white floor.
