1993 PS 190 New Interior - by Viper

I thought I'd give a shout out for Jim at Viper Customs. I shipped the boat down to get a new intrerior with creative direction summarized as:

Objective: replace all carpet and vinyl with a more modern design
Design: Use the 2001-04 PS 190 design as a style guide
Colors: lighter grey than current, trim in medium grey with silver and black carbon fiber on the engine cover and accents. No TEAL.

First time I wrote a creative brief for something I spent MY money on. I'm happy with the work and the price. Carl did the vinyl worked and at MC for eons before going to Viper.

The were a few misses in some details I asked for driven by communication gaps from employee turnover, and Jim is running a hoppin' business down there. But, I'm pleased they were able to turn the project around in two weeks in the middle of summer.

For the day I go to sell, I'm curious to see what you all think of the final work.


Before Pics, yes that's black duct tape on the engine cover.

After - the engine cover design worked out differently than a '01. It's a unique morph of a '01 and a '98. Not exactly what I had in mind, but I think it worls well to blend the eras and definitely meets my objective to modernize the design.

I asked what was possible for restoring the old device. I knew a thin vinyl could be steamed, adhered and wrapped over the two pieces and drop in SS cupholders but had concern for endurance of adhesive to keep a vinyl overlay in the contoured bevel around the edge.

Carl agreed it wouldn't last and offered to build a trim piece wrapped in carbon fiber vinyl. We discussed merits of a vent and hardware options available. I chose to run without it since no newer boats have vents and sealing it would make the back seat db a little better for conversations between backseat riders and driver. With a 600 cfm carb, I wondered if there would still be enough air for the engine to breathe and did have the old device sent back just in case or could easily add a new aluminum vent. There's no shortage of air flow from the rear vents, skied it right after delivery and it ran just like it did before.

Here's a closeup.

Love the look of the wrap. I have been looking for an idea to dress up the cupholder recesses on our boat. The wife can do the upholstery work, she did all of it on our last boat, just need to build the form. Did you use a plastic materials to avoid warpage? How did you secure it to the base?

It was screwed from the bottom or bolted (I forget which) and was a plastic board of some sort.

I ordered this Grant steering wheel, but it arrived after we left for a ski/camping trip. I'll get a pic of the dash once I get it installed. It requires converting from a 5 bolt to 6 bolt.
