    Paint job underneath SHO

    Okay i need to get my pump tunnel area sanded and repainted after some bubbles appeared on my SHO now how do you position the ski to paint it properly ?
    Do you raise the back up with chains, make it sit on the side or drive the trailer on a ramp to have more space underneath ?
    any ideas ?

    If it's under warranty let the dealer take care of it. If not, what are you using for paint?

    Well i chose to bring it to paint shop near where i live since no fiberglass work as to be done, just sanding and a paint job, now they usually paint cars and not jet skis so they asked me how they could paint underneath the ski without having to flip it upside down...
    For the paint you can get it from a yammi dealer in different sizes.

    As far as I know, drain oil, drain fuel. A few guys can flip it over.

    I will be doing some minor repair work and repaint mine at home laying on my back....

    just a suggestion, but if they had a 2 post car lift, they could use the arms that usually go under the cars and put them under the lip of the side rails and lift the ski up? I'm not sure how strong those areas are, but it's an idea.

    what if i lay it on its side ?
    Is it true that paint doesn't grip if you shoot it up ?
