1995 XP 800 Project
Just picked it up pretty cheap. Going to be a long winter project and require hours and hours cleaning it up.
Any tips or comments are much appreciated as I have little experience with this model ski.
Also, any tricks for cleaning up the oxidized gelcoat?

I have seen a couple of these pop up lately, what price range have they been selling for ?

Does the thing Run? For the gelcoat, you could try what this guy did on his GSX's. http://www.luxury4play.com/mid-west/...utolavish.html It sounds like a ton of work the way he did it though. I would think a wet sand followed by a polishing compound and wax would work as well.

Thanks so much for that link, that is very helpful! I'm going to start with a heavy compound, but I expect wet sanding will be necessary. Taping up the decals is going to be a pain but worth it to not damage them.

wet sand for sure it will come out nice
big time pita to save the decals, i'd dump them myself but I can accept the reasons behind the choice.
its a steal at 400 not matter what
and why have we seen like 4 or 5 of these cropping up lately super cheap , just a run on 95 800's ?
also i've read probably 20 times that they made 500
but somebody recently posted 2500, anybody wanna chime in on the correct # ?
