Nice project boat...bite your tongue on the long winter...lol...

I would not take out the windshield...just taped off the glass and prep and paint. If you have the time... http://www.eastwood.com/hotcoat-powd...RCCODE=1SE0757 - really nice powder coat...

The screw channel - here's a link for replacement.

http://www.taylormarine.com/hardware/index.html

Replacing the foam under the windshield easy to replace...you can just loosen the windshield prop up with spacers - unless the foam gasket is gone or leaking I would let it wait..

Decals you can many places - The only thing about decals is the colors you might get. If you want to color match you'll to have them made locally. Color matching is tough.

The cups you can buy anywhere...

these caught my eye... pricey but way cool... http://www.overtons.com/modperl/prod...s&merchID=4005

I had a 76 Sea Ray in similar condition and basically refinished all the parts I could get in the house over the winter then finished the rest of the boat as the weather got better in the spring. You'd be amazed what you can take apart and get in your basement when you really want to work on something.

Do you know which paste will match the best? Or do I have to contact them?

How many feet do I need, and where are prices?

Yeah, I didn't really want to send it out to get powder-coated. How does that product work that you posted?

Thanks for the links. Ha, yeah I don't need that fancy of cups. It is just a ski boat after all. I saw some SS from Bakes for only $9 that I kinda like. Although, I'm not worrying about that little stuff at the moment. We'll try and get the boat out to the lake next weekend to make sure everything works fine. Then I'll start making it look pretty.

Spectrum can get you gel that will match - however the color may not match due to age...but you can play around with color tints to get very close...

You need to spray it and then bake it. There's a thread here where someone bought a cheap oven..range portion that did not work for a $100 and then spray on the powder coat baked it and it the part looked brand new.

Cick Here

I may add these just for a little dress up...my cups are 17 years old and one chipped up like yours.

I've wanted a powder coating set-up for a while now for my bike stuff. Maybe I'll start that this winter if I can find some room...

Thank Lumbergh for finding the cup holders. I'll probably order them next spring.

Congratulations on the new boat, i it to ended up buying my x-10 that was a in a real used and now 11 years old shape for a song. these boats are so well built that it didnt really matter. i spent under a thousand doing all the hoses, plugs wires fluid act. now i to am working on the cosmetics. the great thing your boat is it an awesome looking boat and as you get it to the condition that you want it in it will be one of the better looking boats and the enjoyment and satisfaction that you will get of your work not to mention the fun you have with it, makes it worth while. Enjoy! and listening to the advise of the guys here i havent been steered wrong once. making this one of the best toys i have ever had.
