The boat looks great. I am looking for the Steering Wheel center cap Decal. Where did you find it to replace it. Thanks

All I can say is WOW.

That boat was left for dead with neglect and you not only rescued it, but made it a head turner.

Nice work!

ProStar200, it is original to the boat. I masked the steering wheel and painted it in place using a good quality gloss black spray paint. I found the cap behind the fuel tank (it had apparently fallen off and then worked its way back there). It was in two pieces, the rubber face and the metal backing. I painted the metal backing red and then glued it back onto the rubber which is why it looks unique (they were sliver stock). since you don't have one, I would suggest having a vinyl cutter make you one. Probably cost around $15 including design.

Lumbergh, thanks - appreciate it

Boxman3, I put the graphics together using Adobe Illustrator, had a local sign shop cut the vinyl, and then I applied them. It took some back and forth to figure out what the vinyl guy needed, but in the end it was a fun experience. The skiier piece came from a graphic that was floating around this forum a few years ago, I just combined the skiier and the prostar logo as I never really cared for the stock logo and was shooting for an updated look in general.

Great resto job, man. Nice to see that this thread is continuing to get so much love, although that quality leaves no question as to why.

I jotted down all the gel coat links you had hear. Hope to be able to get some progress on buffing out my gel coat on the 84 Prostar I just purchased.

Doing a similar resto. Where did you get the all black rub rail? Is the frame aluminium or plastic?

I had Viper Customs source that for me while they were working on the interior. As such, I do not know the brand of the rail (you can probably give Jim at Viper a call and bet he would tell you). Unfortunitly, the new rail does not match the exact profile of the original. As such, the nice aluminum MasterCraft-branded seam cover on the transom does not fit the rail (seam still looks fine, but I like the original better). My understanding form Jim was that the original profile is no longer manufactuered, so this may be something we are all stuck with. I have thought about milling out the seam cover to fit the new profile, but I have not had the motiviation given that it looks fine as is.

Goood luck with your resto! Looking foward to hearing how it goes. Definitly a worthwile process, even all these years later our boat looks great inside and out despite being well used.
