STItaxi's Conversion Taxi
Ok, not really a taxi, though it can carry a passenger...
Just picked up a Millennium Edition GPR hull today. Apparently the ski sank a while ago so of course the inside and outside are a mess!
At this point, I still need a donor RXP/T and a few odds and ends. The plan is to clean up the hull, do all the prep work and possibly paint while it's cold outside.
Thanks to James and Steve for the inspiration to do this!
Here she is, minus a few parts that I removed already.

Just powered up the gauge cluster... 17.4 hours on it!

l Supply DC 12 voltage to the natural
color six-pin connector (+: red, –:
black) with a battery.
l Disconnect the green two-pin connector
(white/blue and black leads).
l Connect the white/blue and black terminals
with a jumper lead 1.
l Connect the green and red terminals
with a jumper lead 2.
If the jumper lead is installed for more
than 30 seconds, the display will automatically

Much simpler way -
On the 6-pin connector:
Red to +
Black to -
Tap Green wire on + to simulate RPM signal

strip everything out of it until its completely bare (including the midwall) and then get some degreaser and a nice stiff brush with a long handle.
My .02 is cut the midwall out with a cutting disc. Not worth the trouble of heating and pulling out IMO.
For what you paid with a trailer youre in great shape. There is at least $100 in useless parts on it now you can easily flip starting with that nice low hour cluster.

I tried putting the hull in the basement but it was about an inch too big to go through the door! Argh!

The bearing support stays in the stock location.. Remove the door frame..
