I'm looking for 2 parts for a brother in laws 2006 x2. First one is the switch on the dash for the interior lights. The second part is the clear cap over the light on top of the tower where the rope attaches.

On a side note, the bow numbers from prior owner appear to be painted on and aren't stickers. How would you get those numbers off without damaging the fiberglass.

Thanks in advance.

We would love to see pics of the reg #'s on the bow to get an idea of how to help. Painted on? Interesting and unique problem on a wake boat... it can be fixed/remedied I'm sure

i had to order at dealer, couldn't find online, if you pull the old one it will have numbers on side. Googled it and found some that were close but not exact. dealer charged me like 25 dollars for the nab, courtesy switch. Sucks but i wanted it to look right,

Tower light is easy fix, you can find it by google. New LED one is 35 shipped to your door with no tax.

removing paint can be done in a variety of ways.. what ever you do don't leave the chemical on the gel coat very long. Acetone has been used.

here's a thread - some folks use oven cleaner..

Carling makes the dash switches and they are from the LT (lighted toggle) series. You can find them on Ebay and tons of other places by doing a Google search on "Carling lighted toggle switch". You're going to need to know how you want to use it as in the throw and poles on the switch.

Same drill for the tower light however you'll want to make sure you're getting the same style as the one that's on your tower.

Sometimes with these small parts if you don't know exactly what you need you're really better off just going to the dealer and getting the right stuff the first time.

As to the painted letters...... I hate it when they do that. I've known people to use oven cleaner, denatured alcohol, lacquer thinner and aggressive rubbing compound. I've personally used (as Mike states) Acetone. Depending on how long it's been on there you'll probably need to wet sand and rub out the area to get rid of the ghosting from where the painted on characters were.

I have used acetone no problem. Just make sure that you stay away from any decals.

Try some xylene on those numbers. Depending on the type of paint they used xylene might take them off. Xylene won't harm fiberglass.

I believe this is the clear cap you are looking for: http://mymastercraft.hostedbyamazon.com/MasterCraft-Boat-Company-LIGHT/dp/B005BT8M46?field_availability=-1&field_browse=3076385011&id=MasterCraft+Boat+Company+LIGHT&ie=UTF8&refinementHistory=brandtextbin%2Csubjectbin%2Ccolo r_map%2Cprice%2Csize_name&searchNodeID=3076385011&searchPage=1&searchRank=salesrank&searchSize=12

Who in the world paints on the registration numbers? That's very short sighted.

I always thought debadging the boat was bad, this is a whole new level.

We have both of those parts listed online.
