TurboFab's Show and Go build thread
Well guys its about that time to make a slow build thread, lets start of with my 05 RXP. I bought this 3 weeks ago and have been going thru the whole ski to make sure its 100%. I have already pulled the pump and did a full pump rebuild including the wear ring. I have sand blasted the nozzle as it had some corrosion and powdercoated it black. I pulled the waterbox to mod it but realized someone else had already shorten it so i corrected some of their mistakes and re drilled the baffles. Then I pulled the valve cover and sand blasted it and powder coated it hammertone black. Now onto the major part. I was out riding when I noticed my hull had a little more water then usual, at first i didnt mind it but i realized as it sat in the water it would fill up a little more. So i finished my day and brought it back home to investigate it some more. Found a nice size crack in the hull where someone tried to fix it by putting bondo over it and repainting the whole ski. Not only did they suck at trying to fix the crack but there painting ability are horrible. Now i have completely stripped the hull and flipped it over to fix the crack and true the hull. I am truing/painting the hull as a make this thread so ill keep updating it.
ONTO THE PICS.
When I bought it
Fixed the waterbox and broken baffles, Dont have any finished pics
Added a boost gauge ( dont mind the SRT gauge i thru it in there waiting for my liquid fill)
Trashed wear ring and pump seals were toast, opened the cone and water poured out.
Shitty paintjob is peeling off, and over spray all over
Now the to the HULL
After block sanding getting out all of the high and low spots and taking off the old crap paint.
CRACK that the previous owner tried covering up
First coat of primer, needs to be block sanded
