Almost finished getting the Vinyl back to its former glory using Babes. Look as if it really is white not grey!

In my defense.... I just picked her up in July and had intended on doing this fromn the beginning. It's tedious but oddly enough it doesn't bother me a bit.





Side by side...


Before...


After...(should I worry about the fraying that appears to have occurred?)

Yesterday I removed the motor box and back floor panel...PO has rigged up a pvc pipe to the exhaust hose coming off the blower as he was too lazy to install a new blower hose.

So I pull up the rear panel and what do I find? The blower hosing behind the pvc was broken as well. PO is lucky he did not blow up the boat!

Also found out the bilge pump is toasted so I ordered a new one and also a new blower.

So I have an order in for new blower hosing for the blower all the way out the back as well as the flex hosing which runs under the dash. I need to pull the gas tank this week so I can connect the new blower hoses...hoping this should not be too difficult to do.


I removed the driver seat and then pulled up the panel under the pylon to find a mess of grease and oil in the bilge area. So that will be this week's project to get that cleaned up before my parts arrive.

I did fix the front and back lights, bulbs were just burned out.



Started on the gel coat oxidation...tested a small area with 3m oxidation remover and the color is coming back very nice.


Question...one of the toggle switches for ACC1 doe not light up green when pushed forward to the on position. Is there a bulb in there or do I need a new toggle switch? If a new one is needed, where can I get one?



Back to work today...

That looks great, what did you use on the white threads? I've noticed mine is starting to do the same thing on the front cushions.

Thanks - not done yet. If you can believe it or not I used a toothbrush and a single squirt of Babes Vinyl cleaner. Squirt the toothbrush and work a small area until I was satisfied... wipe and move in the the adjacent area.

for the seat cushions I have a bigger brush.... not done yet but as you can see the difference is very noticeable. Literally thought the seats were grayish in color and surprised to find out they truly are stark white.

10 year old Vinyl is holding up pretty well - very supple still though some of the stitching on the rear hatch has come out.

Anyone know if that is easily restitched? it is literally the only flaw in the interior.
