03 or 04 X-2 owners

Can someone please either post or email me a couple of detailed pics of the rear of your 03 or 04 X-2. I have an 00 PS205 DD, with an 1100lb ballast system and large X2 style swim platform, and my winter project will be to raise the platform to the height of the X2. I'm trying to determine the exact height of the platform againt the back of the boat. I was thinking of just adding the X2 bracket's, problem solved, but $220 is way too much. Hope to add solid plastic blocks and extended SS screws, and use the leftover $$ to add a transom guard and a 30-pak of Miller lite for my trouble. Thanks for any help you folks can provide !

I added two 1" x about 18" long plastic blocks under each side of my '94 205 wood swimstep like 2 years ago. Raised the swimstep about 2" so it was out of the water when the boat was weighted down. Works great & no one even notices it unless I point it out.
I got the plastic from Tap Plastics in Bellevue, WA. but it looks like they have stores all over: http://www.tapplastics.com/

Heres a pic of the back of the boat: http://airjunky.com/temp/rotm2.jpg
