    FX HO scratch repair

    When I purchased my ski it had quite a few scratches on the nose of it because the previous owner had a habit of crashing into his dock. Anyhow, the scratches drove me crazy for the longest time because I'm a bit of a perfectionist. After a few weeks of starring at them I couldn't deal any longer and decided that I was going to get a quote to have them painted. The quote came back at 250-300 plus another 40 or so for the side stickers which would have to be removed in order to paint the nose of the ski. I knew that I wanted the work done but didn't really feel like spending a minimum of 300 to have it painted. So....I decided to take some careful measurements and fabricate a template to have a decal made that would cover the scratches. After about 2 hours of careful measurements and cutting I came up with the template. I then took the template to my local vinyl design shop and had a decal made. The results are spectacular! For 15 dollars the scratches are all but gone. I would like to offer my template (free of charge, just want to help others save some money) to anyone out there who has scratches on the nose of their FX HO that they would like to cover up. If you have any interest feel free to contact me and I'll email the template to you. Hope this helps. Click image for larger version.

    Here's one last photo outlining the shape of the decal and area covered up. The "yamaha" is optional on the decal and with the template you can have the decal made in any color you choose so that it matchsClick image for larger version.
