10 year old Vinyl is holding up pretty well - very supple still though some of the stitching on the rear hatch has come out.

Anyone know if that is easily restitched? it is literally the only flaw in the interior.
Sounds like that if you cleaned the vinyl with your toothbrush that your MCOCD is pretty high

This might fall under MCOCD as well. Since my alternator was off for service, regualator went bad, the bracket that held it on was chipping paint pretty bad so I wiz wheeled it clean real quick and dropped it off for powder coating rather than just rattle canning myself.. My co-workers are getting a kick out of this today..





then i degreased the exterior of the alternator. Re-installing tonight.

So I have an order in for new blower hosing for the blower all the way out the back as well as the flex hosing which runs under the dash. I need to pull the gas tank this week so I can connect the new blower hoses...hoping this should not be too difficult to do.
If you had a REAL case of MCOCD you would replace the blower hose with corrugated aluminum tubing that is used for dryer vents. Just sayin'...

I used the aluminum dryer hose this spring, because the black stuff kept getting holes in it. Every once in awhile I get some water splashed up on on the bow and water would run into my storage up front thru the hose, holes. Can't see it, but I have the 2 hoses connect to a Y then drop down into the bilge.



Dryer hose for the blower as well. After I accidently cut right thru the black stuff with the power washer.

Nice touch. Yet another thing to put on the Spring list.

[quote=VP46;888662]Almost finished getting the Vinyl back to its former glory using Babes. Look as if it really is white not grey!

In my defense.... I just picked her up in July and had intended on doing this fromn the beginning. It's tedious but oddly enoug

h it doesn't bother me a bit.



Is that the Babes Seat Soap?
