    Need to repaint my white 787 before reinstallation

    Did a little search and came up with very little. I've got my freeze cracked 787 out of one of my recently purchased 1996 XPs and I'm going to have to get a pair of new used jugs. Anyway, the motor is pretty ugly now and will need to be repainted. Is there any Sea Doo white engine paint available or is everyone just spraying whatever type of white paint that they can find??

    SeaDoo switched to silver for the 787.

    I have a pair of 1996 XPs that I recently purchased. Both engines are white and I don't think that they've been repainted but what do I know? When did SD go to silver for the 787?

    Okay. Mine are pre-injection. I've seen plenty of pictures of other 787s that were white like mine.



    I know that people have repainted their engines. What kind of white paint did you use? Mine appear to be a flat, off-white color. Perhaps the "flat" is due to age. Maybe the engines started out satin or semi-gloss ?

    It is kind of a flat white on the 787. I would think any heat resistant paint would work but I have never done it personally so thats just a guess.

    why go white? Just pick a color that looks good. IMHO, the silver motors looks awesome!
