    Default my 08 LSV mods

    I thought I'd share some of the tweaks I've made to my 08 LSV. Here is how it looked the day I picked up.

    Default New graphics

    I liked the streak graphics better than the oval that came on the boat, and preferred the 09 LSV decal by the windshield as well. They were all fairly easy to apply. Just measure carefully and use plenty of water mixed with a drop or two of dish soap. I used a bondo applicator to work out the bubbles, starting from the center and working out to the edge.

    Default Cargo nets

    Cargo nets from http://www.eznetorganizer.com/ added. One piece of advice... don't use the front nets to store your oil (as pictured). You'll be messing with your battery wonder why your back is all wet, only to discover you were leaning on the oil container and it exploded all over...

    Default fake a lake

    Ok, not really a mod but thought I'd show my fake-a-lake. The original hose I used burst so I bought 1 foot of radiator hose from the auto parts store. Added a PVC barb fitting and hose adapter. Works great and no crawling under the boat!

    I picked up the cargo nets at Sears on clearance. I've seen them at Ace and Scheels as well. I think the brand is EZ Nets or something like that. I use mine for ropes and handles mostly and they work great.

    I hook the fake-a-lake to the v-drive water intake. I'll snap a pic next time I hook it up.
