Not sure of that time frame, but the older boats were all hand cut pieces, so there is variation from boat to boat. Better to have the pieces at the shop, second best to have the skins to duplicate. Over time I'm sure the pieces have become more standardized, but not sure how much so at what point.

^agree 100% with that. Using the existing skins is fine though. If nothing they maybe alil stretched but will fit as they do now. I say that thinking it makes sense but my 02 were tight and had to be steamed after fluffing the foam back up.

I hear you. I probably should have preferenced my above post with skins that match 96 factory templates. I can only assume that MC cut all interiors the same on prostars in that era.

Editted: Just read the additional posts...sounds like each boat was hand fitted and may have some variations.

I always seem to read the posts about Viper because I had very mixed results. Cloaked said it best IMO. I'm not here to slander someone, but just want to tell it like it is. I heard about their service here, so maybe I should add my perspective.

I had my boat done over a year ago, and I'm still happy with the results. Karl or is it Carl, does GREAT work. But I was absolutely lied to during the process, dates slipped, promises not kept.

After I picked up my boat, several weeks after it really should have been done, the custom cover wasn't "done". There was a promise made I'd have it in the mail within the week. I waited at least 2 weeks before I started calling. Then I went several weeks of calling him each and every day, and no answers and no returned calls. I felt like I had a good relationship with Jim. Talked with him many times in person and on the phone. But since then, not a word, not an apology, nothing. In the end I had dispute the $800+ charge via my credit card, because the product was never shipped.

End product is very good(if you get it), customer service is a joke.

I had my boat done during the winter when I didn't need it. I was told 4 to 6 weeks. It took 6 but I didn't mind as it wasn't costing me time on the water. The interior turned out great, no regrets here.

Boat was the Supra in this thread.
http://www.wakeworld.com/forum/showthread.php?t=793659

It had to be stripped completely, carpet and all (raccoon scat is nothing to mess with where kids will be sitting/snacking). It wasn't new seat skins, but an entire new interior. The boat looks better than it did new. They added a tower, and per owner request removed the old stereo and speakers, covered it up to look like it was never there. Ski rack on one side of tower, board rack on the other. Re-glassed the footwell and ski locker, re-gelled them to look like new. Relocated the battery. As the insurance company took forever to get sorted out, it went to them in October. Buddy said just keep it over the winter and he'd pick it up in spring. He got regular updates along the way, and pictures to show what was being done. Overall a great experience.

It seems that your results may vary.
