    Default 08 LSV Mods w/ links to everything

    Aight guys, here goes... I tried to keep tabs on all the links to products I used and to the links of other threads with good info on each topic!!

    I'll start with the removal of the factory decals!
    All I used was a hair dryer and my fingernail. Boat was stored out side for 4 years and the side that never saw the sun came off no problem and left no discoloration. The other side saw the sunrise every morning and the decal was sun dried to the boat pretty good. I used everything I could find with no luck and I didn't want to wait on ordering a 3M Adhesive Eraser Wheel (which would've saved me 3 hours), but it all finally came off with persistence. Afterwards, gave her 2 Compound buffs and 1 good coat of wax!

    While waiting on the boat to get here I had already done some researching on here for a few things that I knew I would need.
    1) Ballast Upgrade
    Got 2 of these with the 1100lb bags, then picked up parts 33030 and 33049 to use on the factory 400lb bags

    2) Board Racks
    http://shop.monstertower.com/p-141-p...inventory.aspx
    These are a little big for our towers but with a small rubber shim to fill the gap, PERFECT (can't beat the price)

    3) Cooler Removal was EASY with a dremel and dremel tool 561! Be sure to lay down a garbage bag or something to save a nasty clean up of fiberglass shavings. Have a partner hold a shop vac close to you while cutting and it will help tremendously!

    Now for the LEDs...
    In case anybody else wanted to change out their dash lights... I used the same lights on my 2004 Outback and they worked on the 08 LSV... FYI prepare to twist/torque/cram your upper body in the craziest ways to get up under that dash with a pair of pliers haha

    I went with the cup holder LEDs from Ozinum
    12 x Prewired Superflux 4 Chip LEDs - Blue
    http://www.oznium.com/prewired-superflux
    Then I went with 5 x Flexible LED Strips - Blue, 9.5 Inch from Ozinum
    http://www.oznium.com/led-flex-strips
    The lights may not look too bright due to all the outside light coming in from the boat stall doors not being completely shut. I have LEDs in all the cup holders except under the driver's dash because I have a strip there and one under the captain's chair facing back across the open area to the other side of the boat. I also put a strip in the glove box and inside the Observer's seat back, which helps when getting stuff out of the boat at night.

    I'm still waiting on my ACME 1617 prop to get here and I'll be almost done!!! yeaaa right.. haha

    I have a couple extra cup holder lights that I was going to put in place of the courtesy lights, but I couldn't really figure out how to get that little cover off and I didn't want to break it... Is there a trick to replacing those bulbs??? The inside is covered with carpet so I assume the cover comes off from the outside, but It seemed to be pretty sealed to me and didn't want to just POP off....

    Wow - nice work all around. I guess I'm going to have step up my game with the impending rebuild and photographic proof...

    I can't cut out my cooler though - there's too much beer in it most of the time.

    Berg - thanks and when we go out there's about 6-8 of us every trip so we would probably have a better result just turning the opposite surf side into a massive cooler instead!!!! (Now there's an idea) 😎

    Moombadaze - yea I really think taking the decals off definitely makes the boat look bigger, plus cleaner!
    And yea I was so busy looking at the diameter of the braces that I didn't even notice racks were wakeboard/surfboard (thick one) rather than wakeboard/wakeboard! That's all the reason I needed to start looking for a nicer, thicker style surfboard.... 😜

    Tgoody - Contacted Monster, and they were no help. I see that the forks mount to an oval bar. Is that bar the same size and dimension of the oval crossbar on your tower? I was thinking about buying the racks just for the forks.

    Thanks
