I have been motivated by so many on this site. I have decided to restore my 1989 PS 190. My project is not as involved as some but I have learned so much from this site. I hope you enjoy the photos.

The first task was to work on the exterior finish. The boat had a lot of scratches and the paint was faded after years of enjoyment.
Before:

Here is when we removed the graphics and began the wet sanding:

I purchased a new set of decals from Jim at BAWS and had them applied:http://i1194.photobucket.com/albums/aa376/lbonacci/PS190%20restoration/image7.jpeg

Next up we took the boat to Viper for the interior works. More photos to come. Thanks for the advice everyone!

Nice.

Like your SS flanges too. Looks like they could use some love too.

Whats the actual color of that boat? it kinda looks a little pink. Especially when compared to the decal on the back of the transom.:confused:

According to Jim at BAWS the color is called mauve. It is kind of a dusty pink. The real question is am I permitted to keep my man card if I have a pink boat?

They're both looking good. I always find myself checking out the Viper site to see what cool new things they're doing. Love the way your boats are turning out.

I just received the final pictures from Viper Customs. We switched the carpet from the redish color it came with to a lighter shade of grey. What do you guys think? Next up is to refinish the swim platform.

It looks great! Good decision with the grey carpet. It really brings it up to date. I know where I am going when I need to get some upholstery work done.

I will second the updated carpet color. Also, the red carpet that you had tends to fade and look old faster. There is always a risk updating vs custom. I think you pulled updating off and it looks a lot better.

Looks great, and you made the right choice with the grey carpet.....even if it hurts my neck to look at it.:rolleyes: The previous owner installed new carpet in my '77 and went with a very similar grey.

Viper does some good work. We still need to send our skins out, and Viper is second on the list due to price. However, they may move to #1 since Jim the upholstery guy is very slow to respond, and I'd rather not wait 'til June to be installing them...

+1 for viper! They did an excellent job on my prostar and were very fast. The price was killer compared to quotes I had gotten and the workmanship is unsurpassed!
