    An absolutely superb job. I echo what others have said. It must feel like having a new boat. It practically is. Enjoy!!!

    They? Haha. Ok here's the list of credits that goes along with the transformation.

    Carpet came from Corinthian Marine.
    Stereo - Exile, Duh.
    Install on both of these came from our very own (in)famous Newty.

    New Cover and Bimini came from Dave's Top Shop - Longview, WA

    Upholstery came from Bentley's - Portland, OR
    I gutted it, designed it, they stitched it, did all new foam everywhere, I reinstalled everything.

    The change up on the other colors from light gray to graphite - speaker plastics, glovebox, dash, grab handles, steering wheel, etc all came from me. I was a little iffy at first but am extremely happy with the outcome.

    I used this on the plastics - wipe down and clean with laquer thinner, then several light coats. Amazing stuff!







    Carbon fiber wrap on the cupholders, steering wheel center, rearview mirror is 3M brand off amazon. Also cool stuff.

    Black plastidip the bottoms, cut, wrap and heated the carbon fiber to stretch over the lip. I kinda wanted to go stainless but I don't have stainless anywhere else. So the darker tone goes well with the graphite color everywhere and I haven't seen any others out there. Plus I haven't done much original for pimp points lately...

    I knew you were holding out on us. It looks fantastic. I agree with the carbon fiber in your boat with no stainless anywhere. And I love the color change from the washed out look to the modern graphite look. It really makes it a new boat. So nice.

    What - you mean there's rules? You work - I drink. Thought that was the arrangement!

    Ok, here's proof he actually worked while I drank all his, I mean OUR beer.

    I was all excited he might even deliver it for me. That lasted about 10 seconds.




    Another mod I did which I may undo.





    Stretching to wrap around the curves was a PITA. And then trimming the front edge. Great concept - not so great on the delivery. This was inspired by Ian's sticker bomb mirror but I was shooting for it to match the other carbon fiber I did.

    Looks great from a few feet away. Up close not as much.
