The plastic covers an arc and the bottom arc is a little longer. When you look down on it vertically, you can see the slight difference.
Since it is covered with carpet, any imperfections in measurement or fit will likely not show.
The clips are across top with loops on bottom to pull for access.
The last photo attempts to show the arc. Note the gap in the center at the bottom.

That's what the original is... Lets see what you create.
wow... thought I was looking at my boat

Latest update- Project Fuel Pump and new Fuel Lines
Unfortunately when dealing with a sometimes temperamental 21 year old, you come across unexpected issues. I was out on the water calibrating the Perfect Pass, and had just finished the 36 mph calibration, when the fuel pump started screeching, and the motor started stumbling. Shut her off, checked the fuel level, and then started her back up. She ran rough all the way back to the dock.
Ok, fuel pump must be not getting fuel. Then I remembered there is a screen on the intake side of the pump that can get clogged and not let the pump lubricate itself, or get fuel to the motor. Well, so much for skiing this day. Off to the garage.
Got the pump off, the screen cleaned, and reinstalled which got me paying attention to the fuel lines from the pump to the motor. I replaced the lines from the tank to the pump in 07; but the lines to the motor had not been replaced to my knowledge, and were possibly original.

Sent an e-mail to SkiDIM, and they responded that Indmar no longer has them. Now what the heck am I going to do? Thankfully there is a shop in town that specializes is making any and all kinds of lines and hoses. Pulled the originals (sure enough they were date stamped 1994) and took a ride down to Amazon Hose and Rubber. They made them while I waited, and the only thing they did not have was the quick connects which they took off the old lines. I decided to go stainless steel braid for longevity.





Now I gotta try and get back on my project schedule.
