Few update pics.

What is your exhaust piping made of?
On my boat I think I have mufflers where I see white piping on yours? I've read posts of MC "silent masters." Mine look like a basic resin material on the outside (black). I do need to look up them ;-)

The previous owner of mine replaced the oem silent masters with schedule 40 PVC. I am guessing the mufflers started to rot out over time, I have read that somewhere on team talk I believe.

Why not? Seems like a simplistic but workable option. I better watch (and look into) mine now!

It has a real nice sound when cruising. And is nice and quiet still while idling.

The deck looks great.
Was it hard to pull up the carpet? Was there much glue reside to remove, and if so, how did you remove it?

The old carpet pulled right off!

There was some adhesive left over. However it was like fine sugar. All I used was a putty knife and the shop vac. Scraped off very easy.

Great job with the carpet removal. Did you get under the passenger seat? If so how hard was it with the fiberglass seat frame?

I am leaving the carpet under the passenger seat and closed bow for now.

I got nearly the exact same color, the carpet will give the open area a nice re-vamp
