    Blistering/cracks in foot wells...

    Our 2000 GP1200R has a lot of blistering with a few cracks in the footwells. The cracks just look like they're cosmetic, but I'm sure if I dug into them they'd flake.

    What's that gonna cost to repair? Does this get worse with time? I assume it's because the prior owners let water sit in there?

    I also have a half dollar size cosmetic chunk that needs to be repaired on the front/hood. Again just cosmetic. Is it cheaper to repair them both at the same time or does it matter?

    Thanks!

    I do, but in past experiences I've learned this isn't the type of thing I want to tackle.

    It all depends on how much you are willing to put into a 12 yr old ski. I also have a 2000, and had some spots that needed attention. I am by no means a professional auto body mechanic, just telling you how I did it..so procede with caution..lol First off, you want to get all the loose flaking areas up with some minor scraping and sanding. Dont worry about getting it smoothed out for now. Get yourself some Marine tex, Its like an epoxy bondo for boats, and sands like wood. Coat the areas needed, spread heavy enough to cover, but not too globby, makes sanding easier later on. When it dries get yourself a rounded sanding block or sanding sponge for the footwells, the other areas, I just used regular, and worked my way up with the grits until smooth. I got a some touch up paint from Colorite to match exactly, and presto. Everything should cost you $40-$50, and a sunny day. Hope this helps, good luck - J
