1989 PS 190 Restoration

I have been motivated by so many on this site. I have decided to restore my 1989 PS 190. My project is not as involved as some but I have learned so much from this site. I hope you enjoy the photos.

The first task was to work on the exterior finish. The boat had a lot of scratches and the paint was faded after years of enjoyment.
Before:


Here is when we removed the graphics and began the wet sanding:


I purchased a new set of decals from Jim at BAWS and had them applied:



Next up we took the boat to Viper for the interior works. More photos to come. Thanks for the advice everyone!

Nice.

Like your SS flanges too. Looks like they could use some love too.

Whats the actual color of that boat? it kinda looks a little pink. Especially when compared to the decal on the back of the transom.

According to Jim at BAWS the color is called mauve. It is kind of a dusty pink. The real question is am I permitted to keep my man card if I have a pink boat?
