Installed the brown faux teak (with MasterCraft logo) on my '06 X30 this past winter. Love the look - and feel! The old rubber pad came off without much trouble - but the adhesive that was left behind was nearly impossible to remove - hard as nails! Neither a heat gun, acetone or MEK would touch it. Had to resort to a razor blade and elbow grease.

The process isn't fun- think it took about 2+ hours to completely strip the old pad. Like others have said, just be generous with the acetone and it will help dramatically. Razorblade is a must also. But it is certainly worth it as it now feels good to stand or sit on that thick pad. ONLY drawback i've noticed so far with the Seadeck is that it catches dirt fairly easily.

P.S. I didn't order the pad to have the "X Star" drawn in. They just sort of sent it to me that way.. I didn't really care so i just installed it.

I think they do a lot of OEM stuff that occuies most of their production. They have a fantastic looking product but were a little hard top work with when I was looking for a deck pad. That X-star looks awesome! Big improvment over stock.
