    2008 RXT / RXP Graphics

    Has anyone who owns the 08' red and white rxt/rxp with those hideous "IMHO" stripped them off? I'd be interested in seeing a picture of one stripped. I'm picking one up tomorrow and if the gel coat is in excellent shape like it should be (garage kept, covered) then I'm going to take a heat gun to it and strip it clean, I can't stand the way it looks with that crazy RXT going sideways across the hull.

    Now the "seadoo" rubbers and rxt logo on the hood are gone. Mine is 100% debadged. It's not normal stickers. They're like aluminum tape and the glue tends to stay on. Get some 3m adhesive remover and a plastic scraper and a buddy

    Well I wanted to report back with results.

    I just used my Harbor Freight heat gun, warmed an end section up for a few seconds then got the "peel" started. I just applied heat a few inches in front of the peeling progress and right up it came. The only glue it left back was a hair line around the edges of each sticker. I took aircraft stripper adhesive remover on a sock and it melted it right away.

    I debaged and had all the glue lines gone in 25 minutes without even breaking a sweat. It was truly painless and the ski looks like a million bucks!

    You got lucky or maybe it's your location. I'm in FL and the heat and sun probably took its toll on mine. Get rid of the funny stock handle bars and you're good to go!

    I hear ya man. I'll grab my flame suit but I've just never really liked the dirt bike style handle bars. My buddy has a 96' XP with a umi setup and I just can't get into it. Your ski is hot though.
