I did not want to mess with a circular buffer. I did not want to throw money away on an orbital. TT Members seem to like it the PC random orbital. Functional and reliable. Premium Boat Care... Auto Geek and even Meguiars felt it was a worthy product.

Adam's Polishes makes a good product and provide excellent instruction and since their combo price (with discount) was the lowest i could find, I decided to go that direction.

Never have. Not recommended. No need to with a clean surface. However, don't make this a bad experience. Clean it and put it back together... all you need to do is remove gasket material.. not metal..

You're good to go! ........... Final chapter..... stick a fork in it.... call it a day........done deal....

Went out in the garage, uncovered it, open the engine hood, closed it, and sat in the drivers seat.

Try some toilet bowl cleaner it worked on mine.

Anyone have tips for cleaning/polishing out water stains at the rub rail?

Who knew owning a boat was s much fun....

+1 - I used the soft metal brush on my drill to clean up the mating surfaces...did not sand...used a little bit of copper permatex where it was slightly pitted, reassembled and forgot about it... now just waiting for warmer weather...2 weeks and the mercury starts heading up...slowly...but up...

Thanks for the advice. I wasn't going to use the gasket sealer (since I was told it wasn't needed) but I think I will to ensure I don't have to do the job again. I will finish cleaning up the mating surfaces a little more use the sealer and call it a day.
Also going to replace the throttle cable this weekend while the silent master is off and I have room. Any advice on what to do or not to do when replacing this cable?

It's fairly straight forward. Lube the controls in behind the panel while you have the shifter apart. Orherwise, it's academic.

Yesterday I finished up installing the new 3" wet exhaust hoses, silent master and exhaust risers. I didn't have time to start it up to see if there where any leaks but I think I will be fine. I will start it next weekend on the fake lake and see.
Didn't get to the throttle cable. Can I replace the throttle cable without removing the front section of flooring? It looks like I would need to remove the drivers seat and maybe more to get that section of flooring up.
I will post pictures when I get home tonight or tomorrow. I know the rule if you don't have pics it didn't happen

I like it. Has anyone added hinges to the non hinged seats? I'd like that on my '07 X2.
