    Hydro turf / black tips on top of factory mats?

    My sea doo (GSX ltd) has factory hard plastic rubbery mats...has anyone simply placed the hydro turf or black tip mats directly on top of these? If not I think I have to drill out all the rivets and fill the holes with some type of silicone ?
    Any input appreciated...also think I may go black tip as they are peel and stick...the hydros you need double sided tape I believe

    i drilled them out on my gti, filled them with the two part stick putty epoxy, then went over it with marine tex and then put the mats on top of that. if you just simply go over you are going to be stuck with the same waves and bubbling that happens with the factory mats over time

    Gotcha...any more info on the epoxy?
    And the other stuff is called 'marine tex' ?
    Any info or tips on what size drill bit or how drilling them out went for you?

    Thanks fellow NJ'er ...Just ordered some black tips..I like the idea of peel and stick other than using a seperate glue to put them down..and my seat is a hydro turf so I like to support more than one company, ha
