    Custum paint on my XLT

    I have admired alot of custum painted skis on this forum & on the PWCToday forum in the last 2-3 months or so. After realizing how much $$$ it would take for me to purchase that nice GP I was talking about. I decided that I am going to invest the money I have for that on a nice custum paint for my XLT. Any suggestions? I am definately looking at including black or dark blue on the hull. Anyone know any custum painted XLT's out there that I can see? I did some editing on my computer to some XLT I saw on the boattrader.com. Black on black. Not bad, but I want something better & I want it well done.
    I had my first ski (93 SeaDoo XP) painted at a local body shop & within the first 8 months, the paint was chipping everywhere. I paid about $500 for the entire hull. Super cheap so I got what I paid for. I ended up at that body shop because at a local boat painting place they wanted to charge me over $3,000 for that little SeaDoo. Any & all suggestions welcome! Thanks guys.

    Leave the hull white and paint the plastics and have the seat redone, hydrotruf allows you to customize your seat partterns/colors........I like the XLT's with white hulls!!! It would start to like like an FHXO starting to paint them dark colors.

    I used House Of Kolor on mine.... it's very expensive stuff, and looks awesome. Next time I'll probably go with Sherwin Williams Sunfire, it's what is on a stock ski. It's a lot more durable than the HOK. I cringe everytime I see that expensive paint get gouged by a dock edge.




    Here are some other XLL/XLT's with custom paint. Plus, you can go to www.exoticsigns.com and they have a paint scheme generator that is pretty fun to play with.

    Smitty, those are pretty sweet paint jobs, however those flames must be expensive as hell... I'm not so much into the flames but I have seen a blue paint with custum smoke that looks real sick. I like that silver XL. Looks sweet.
