If you want the non-skid tread to match then contact a dealer. They can only get a "whole" replacement set. My dealer, NorCal Mastercraft got mine for $72.00.

Did you look at the other side closely to see if you will be doing the same thing there?

So far the other side looks OK but I can imagine that one getting hit as well. I called Norcal MC and left a message to look for the non-skid. Thanks much, Steve.

I never heard back from Norcal Marine after two messages.....

I looked at MC Parts Depot and found this:

1x FIBERGLASS FENDER-NON SKID KIT TANDEM AXLE '02-'13"DIAMOND STYLE"

Price is $72.00

I called Utah MC and confirmed that it's the correct part. Part # 758730.

Their website needs some work but I have my fingers crossed.

I'll keep everyone posted!

Thanks much, Steve.

See my thread here about broken guide post holders -- same problem as yours.
http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/...ad.php?t=61066
I was going to replace the black pads anyway so I took the fender off. I used HydroTurf material. There's another recent thread somewhere here about HydroTurf vs Seadek. Check it out.

Thanks Wheelerd! Seeing it taken apart really helps figure out what the welding repair might look like. Cheers, Steve.

Welding done

Hello all:

I thought I would update this repair for anyone else that has this issue. First, I still don't have any replacement pads (backordered). I went ahead and removed the fenders by making the smallest cuts in the existing pads that I could:

There are some very handy connections with the LED lights. This made it easy to leave the lights on the fender.

My neighbor came over this week and he welded the guidepost back on (as a thunderstorm rolled in). Once he was done I buffed it out as best as I could with a polishing wheel and then treated it with black rust resistant paint.

Then I remounted the fender:

You can see the tiniest amount of black but I will probably live with that for a while. I have a matching paint for my trailer but I will wait until I have completed another project and then touch them both up at the same time. Hopefully the replacement pads will be a perfect match and arrive soon.

Cheers, Steve.

I'm interested in knowing where you got the matching trailer paint. Thanks
