One more interior shot. The backseat has the only cracks on the interior. Two small 1 1/2 inch cracks on the cushion.

A little bit of chalking on the gel. But look around the stars. There is a deep shine under there.

Good find Brian! I hope you have as much fun restoring it as I did my old '90. That interior is in great shape given the age. Hopefully, it'll clean up nice for you.

Good luck! And please keep us posted with pics of the process.

Good Luck Brian, You may even find that you want to keep that '85 once it's all dolled up.

Here is an update for ya. I have about 10 hours into compounding and polishing the hull. I have averything but the bottom of the boat done.
I did two passes with 3M Super Duty Rubbing Compound and two passes with the 3M Cleaner Wax. All of this with a 7" Wool pad with my Makita set to forced circular mode. The cleaner has enough ebrasive in it to remove any of the light haze from the compound and produces a nice shine.

After I finish this process on the bottom I am going to go over it one more time with a Meguires Polish and then one final coat of good Meguires Carnuba Wax. But it is looking good.

Here are the stars with a nice uniform gray in the background now.
