Need help! 06 x star

Ok mastercraft peeps. Just bought a 06 xstar. Working on getting its beauty back. Previous owner let it sit in a storage lot. Anyways, decals got burned into the hull. I will just post picks in progress. So my options are to repaint, try to find new decals, or wrap it. It terms of value which one will help the boat keep it valve. Suggestion?

Does any one have or know we're I can find the tribal decals ? They were the ones from the x games. I know I saw some for sale on this forum somewhere but can't seem to find them now.

So here is after the decals are off and initial wet sanding. Should I cut my losses or keep having them wet sand?

That's after wetsanding? Do a hard cut polish and see where you are at. You could also wrap the boat. But people have brought them back.

More wet sanding. Otherwise you will see the old sticker lines. This one is gonna take some time, but it will clean up! Good luck and post pics when it's done. You might need some professional air tools one this one. But can make it like new.

Ok another question. Anyone have a ball park number for complete upholstery on my 06 xstar. I have been getting numbers all over the place. I want quality not cheap. And want it done right. I have gotten everything from $2500 to $4500 to $6500

I agree with above to wetsand and buff. You can get WAY aggressive with gel coat vs automotive paint.
