Don't worry. I'm not like Cory lol!!! He seems to think I wait for him to do something just so I can do it after.

Haha thats great! You are doing a great job tho. Love the new interior as well. Trailer and speakers need the most rehab on mine so taking on small projects little by little. New tires. Paint wheels. new guide pole covers. new trailer jack. And the list goes on...

Never been a huge fan of painting allow rims, always seems to chip over time and touch up is a pain.

From what I understand (i've never used it), nice thing about plastidip is that if it gets ratty, you can always just peel and re-do!

Yea that is the nice thing is that you can peel it off, but I feel like its a pain if either chips. Good thing, is that I don't have to trailer a ton so either way I feel like I will be good!

Seems like something you could do and then if you didn't like it you could un-do it fairly easily. I have zero experience with the stuff though.

A guy on wakeworld did his tower. He did it orange so it is what it is, but the results were decent.

I did not do anything on my MC ... but I did meet up with WillyT at 6:00 am, and helped him clear a code on his MEFI 5a with my handy, dandy Diacom handheld unit.

Can you believe he did not even offer me a pull ? nothing ... cleared the code ... Misfire on #8 .... change your plugs WillyT .....

Peace .... BTW ... WillyT has a SWEEEEEEEEET X-Star!!!! Very nice.

It looked like a joke from the start - had that urethane look - sure enough the brush used
was solid rock a week later.

The Unsanded end of platform looks as seen when removed last fall -
I'll be finding some actual Teak Oil that penetrates vs just lay on the surface and it shows.
One would think it was 5 years of varnish worn through.
6 weekends maybe max of in & out of the water.

REMOVING STAR BRITE FINISH
Beltsander process began yesterday - 36 grit plows it off decent.


Hoping the image shows the horrible finish in close up of this section.
