Good things come to those who wait. Those look nice, and that was fast!

As a side note - NCS made a change to the depth from the original drawing on the ones he made. He measured his panel and decided the new custom grommet/washer would have bottomed out on the fiberglass without holding the panel tight.

He asked for the measurement on mine as well and decided a shallower depth would work better to ensure a good hold. Evidently not all models armrest panels are made to the same depth. ??

The depth on the drawing he gave me was .75 from the backside of the shoulder. If I need to make some shallower ones let me know.

Anyone have any idea what depth is needed for a 2002 xstar, or has anyone used these for that boat? I want to get some and I am assuming these should be the correct size? Boats in storage so I can't check easily.

I used them on my 2003 x-2 which has the same panels. They fit perfectly. Have fun getting the nut on the back of that center screw. It took me several frustrating hours.

I never looked at the panel closely this summer so I guess I have a lot of fun in store for me this spring when I replace the broken ones. Also how many did you need to replace yours, 3 or 4?

Only 3. The two outside ones aren't that bad. To get the center one back on, I had the nut taped to the end of an open ended wrench which was held by a set of vise grips, which was held by a 5'7" 85lb 13 year old girl.

To get the panel off, there are the 3 screws at the top with nuts on the backside of the fiberglass. Then there is a single screw in the center near the bottom. There is a hidden one on the panel towards the rear of the boat about halfway up. You can't see it from the front of the panel, but there is a nut holding it on from the backside. I removed the throttle arm and ring, but I didn't have to take out the throttle assembly.

If anyone wants these and they end up being too long I will make you shorter ones and send them out. I would just need to know how much shorter.

I sent you a PM on this very subject - the grommets are fantastic but 2 of the 3 are too long/deep. I'll measure and post pics of what I am talking about shortly.
