Just do a search for "engine turned material". I got mine from FMP metals (www.fmpmetals.com).

I did have to bond it to a .90-inch thick piece of aluminum. I think the engine turned material only comes in up to .62-inches thick. Get the 3/4-inch swirl pattern. Mine is the 1/2-inch swirl pattern and it's a little smaller than the stock material.

@TPH, That is pretty cool about the "rooster reducer", but tell me more about that custom swim platform. Nobody seemed to mention this yet.

Metal flake looks badass. Nice ride.

I love the look and durability of teak but practically speaking, a carpeted oversized platform is the way to go. It's not the prettiest thing out there but it's great to easily put your ski or board on and slip into the water off the edge. Here are some pictures:

Looks great. Were these CF panels cut to fit or did you use a wrap?

I was asked about posting a pic of the finished product after it was installed. Here ya go. If you wanted to actually sit on it, then I would put in stainless cup holders.
