    Jeff Jacobs 92/93 Superstock & JS550 Open Mods Race Boats - Full Renovation

    Hi All,
    Nick here from Line One (PWC Workshop Manager) United Kingdom.
    In 2007 a good friend of ours Gary Cartmel, bought two of Jeff Jacobs 92/93 World Championship winning Skis, a JS440 Superstock and a JS550 Open Modified (The Daddy!), We imported them in from Jeff back here to the UK. Gary has now decided the time has come to give them both a full nut, bolt and body restoration and get them back to how they looked when they came out of the PJS Factory workshop. Lucky for us, Gary has trusted us to take on the work getting them back to how they were, saying that, we wont be doing the bodywork as this will be carried out by a company who specialises in this type of thing, rest assured, the work will be carried out to the highest possible standard, Gary doesn’t mess around when it comes to restoration, he owns probably one of the worlds largest collection (37 in total) of World Championship Moto X winning bikes, all restored back to pristine condition. I’ve put up a few images of the skis and also a pic of one of them just before Jeff crated them up sending them to the UK. Over the coming weeks and months I’ll keep you posted on how they’re coming along – I hope you’ll enjoy the journey as much as I will in getting them back to how they should be !
    All the best

    Welcome to the Hulk. Very cool thread, can't wait to see more. One question, could you set your camera to take the pics in a larger size?

    No problem to larger images - my first post, so just testing the water with image sizes etc...
    All the best.
