^^ x3. You are the one that has to look at it everyday. If you are worried about the resale after painting just take some detailed photos of the gelcoat prior to painting to show any potential buyers the original condition.

You've already extensively detailed the restore with pictures, what's a few more!

Thanks for the complements on my thread. Reading verious different forum's on a variety of topics (hot rods, hot boats, toyota landcruisers, etc...) I always wish people would post pictures in addition to talking about their projects/problems. I went to great length to try to encorporate as many pictures as I could so everyone could SEE what's going on.

thanks again!!

After 4 months it's out of the shop and ready for a test run tomorrow morning.

Here is a couple "rig" shots....

The more I look at it...the color is kinda growing on me....and it matches my dually...

WAIT A SECOND....IS THAT PICTURE FROM 1982...OR 2012???? (I am totally into the whole vintage package deal!!!)

I got my "temporary" interior in.

Bringing my ski tomorrow...just incase the boat checks out ok....

I agree. Keep the color. Check my posts, you can do wonders with that original gel coat. Don't be afraid to get after it. I also need to plug [email protected], his decals are awesome! Highly recommend him for your future needs.

Love the job and the color, and that trailer is sick!

+1 on the request for the video. And now, after seeing your tow rig, I don't know how you can do anything but KEEP the brown.
