Congratulations on the new boat, i it to ended up buying my x-10 that was a in a real used and now 11 years old shape for a song. these boats are so well built that it didnt really matter. i spent under a thousand doing all the hoses, plugs wires fluid act. now i to am working on the cosmetics. the great thing your boat is it an awesome looking boat and as you get it to the condition that you want it in it will be one of the better looking boats and the enjoyment and satisfaction that you will get of your work not to mention the fun you have with it, makes it worth while. Enjoy! and listening to the advise of the guys here i havent been steered wrong once. making this one of the best toys i have ever had.
