Thanks
Anyone ever hear anything from Ryan? I think I am due for a new wheel and the outcome of this will probably help me decide which direction I go.

Sorry for the lag. I've been awefully busy lately.

Steering wheels and carpet.
Long story short, I was trying to setup a business opportunity that is off the table. Instead, I can share some info to help you guys order OEM MC wheels through Syntec with model 615 '02-'08 or model 850 for '09-'11 (see catalog via link to confirm the style or opt for something more exotic). Syntec did not make the custom center caps, but they were discontinued by their makers. There is a chance to get the '09+ remade but I got options negotiated there.

I missed this thread until now. Great looking interior and price seems extremely fair to cheap.

Just revisiting the thread. After three very stressful weeks at work, I sure wish I was going skiing this weekend...

Ryan the interior looks great! Do you still have the center cap from the original steering wheel? If so I would be very interested in buying it from you. Mine is faded and cracked.
Thanks
Dave

Nope. I never installed the fancy cap and left the original installed on the boat.

I do have a the fancy cap I'd be willing to sell.

Carl agreed it wouldn't last and offered to build a trim piece wrapped in carbon fiber vinyl. We discussed merits of a vent and hardware options available. I chose to run without it since no newer boats have vents and sealing it would make the back seat db a little better for conversations between backseat riders and driver. With a 600 cfm carb, I wondered if there would still be enough air for the engine to breathe and did have the old device sent back just in case or could easily add a new aluminum vent. There's no shortage of air flow from the rear vents, skied it right after delivery and it ran just like it did before.

Here's a closeup.
Love the look of the wrap. I have been looking for an idea to dress up the cupholder recesses on our boat. The wife can do the upholstery work, she did all of it on our last boat, just need to build the form. Did you use a plastic materials to avoid warpage? How did you secure it to the base?
