    Just picked up a 2007 SeaDoo RXT with some dock rash....before and after pics.

    Just picked up my first SeaDoo. I searched the net for a few weeks before finally negotiating a deal on one. I have ridden similar RXT's for the past 4 years at my uncle's lake house, so I kind of knew that I would be happy with one lol. After seeing several of them sell in the mid $6,xxx range, i decided to go look at this scratched up one. Got it in the $5,xxx's with 50 hours, and still under extended warranty so I'm happy.
    I figure with the scratches, it would ease the pain for when someone bumps a dock with it...

    Here is how it looked when I picked it up.







    After a little wet sanding and buffing, these are the results.










    I figured that I didn't want to take the chance of the supercharger coming apart, so I pulled it for rebuild after the initial test ride. I plan on keeping this thing stock, other than maintenance items. All of my "mod money" goes to my LS1 Mustang project.

    I'm not real in to detailing, but I gave this a shit. I started off wet sanding with 1000 on a small block. Then went to 1500. I the. used 3m rubbing compound on a high speed buffer with a wool pad.....went over it several times. Then went with some mothers wax that I had laying around, nothing special. It looks way better than I anticipated.
