    Painting Ski, What Color?

    Well, I have to do a paint job on my SLX this winter, and trying to decide which color scheme to go with. I know this is more of a Seadoo thing, but was thinking of going gloss black hull, and yellow top w/ black accents. I have always though that look was pretty sharp. Open to suggestions.

    I agree with crazy, the red is great. the lake havasu red like on my Pro. Although, from a different custom color standpoint, red is pretty common along with blues and yellows..

    Maybe a Black gloss gelcoat bottom with a copper topsides, black hood,white "polaris" sticker on the hood and the No,1's in white with black outlines and the "Pro 785" just like it is,white with black outlines and a jet trim seat in copper/black 50/50 with white piping and an embroidered "785 PRO" on the seat up top on the back of it.

    Then black rails and black rear grab handle and black nose piece.. Black grips,black hydroturf, and a carbon fiber dash. That would look tight

    I never thought about copper. I kind of like that idea.

    Matte Blue looks sweet. I hope to paint mine with it. I dont think I will have time or money by spring this year.

    Not sure on this, but when I did body work we always told people not to power wash cars for 90 days while it cured other wise it can flake off. That was with Base/Clear not sure how that is with gel coat on the hull. Something to think about before spring though. I know lxman88 is a painter and my have some input on this.
