So I think I said I post pics of my '88 PS restoration, but I've been so busy I haven't got around to it. Yesterday my buddy and I made some awesome progress on cleaning the engine bay and re-wiring the electrical. I bought the boat and it was the engine was in good shape, would run well, but would not start every time. There was a hairline crack in the hull. Body was good shape minus a few chips here and there. Upholstery was dirty (obviously) but in decent shape. Overall for the amount I paid for the boat it was a good deal and left me money to play with. So here are the before and after pics. Enjoy =)

I haven't installed the new steering wheel, painted vents, or put the windshield back on. I'm waiting on the windshield to see if I can tint it to 5% with red+black tint... but that can wait a bit as I also have to paint the trim.

I've got the same color scheme you started with. I really, really like the updated interior. Not too sure about the graphics on the hull, but I really like the red/black combo on the interior. I can't see myself changing my hull colors, but I do like the 'racing stripe' you did over the motor box. Might have to go that route when I do the interior. :)

Man that looks great! I generally think less is more and like the traditional look on these boats, but you have done an outstanding job! Can't wait ti see it finished.
