Help with my 98 205 X-Star

I got this for a steal. The guy totally trashed it. That tower is some cheap "custom" tower he had built. He never removed it to cover up the boat. It sat outside for years. He had to replace the carpet to sell it, and I had to do about 40hrs. of work to get it where I wanted it. Mildew, and dirt was everywhere. It didn't look like a 98'.

This guy buffed the oxidized gelcoat and graphics with rubbing compound! I am still trying to get it back to normal.

Its kind of fun for me to do that. I like orphaned boats.

Anybody help me with a couple of things?

I want to replace the clock on the dash

New "X-Star" graphics

new skins for the observer and gunnels

some factory gelcoat patch kit. I am not sure what the factory colors were for this, I dont have the original bill of sale or manual.

Thanks guys

BriEOD,
mymc.com is not a working web site. I have searched high and low.

Welcome, herringtech. Brian's got you covered. Make sure to take lots of before shots. Did Farmer ever get rid of his clock from his 98. It'd probably be a perfect fit if he's still got it.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.
