    "Renewed"

    Well, I hate admitting it, but I was really lax on takin care of the wifes ski, asthetically for a bit. I figured that when the GTR came out, she'd want one to... I was mistaken.

    Anyway, the gel-coat was in pretty bad shape, and being under a cover(poorly ventilated, replaced with a OEM cover) all winter, the seat was, well, gross.

    I'm sorry to say that I didn't take any 'before' shots, as I was pretty sure it was going to end up needing to be 'wrapped'.
    I went over it twice with 3M restorer, once with cleaner/wax, then the Scotchgard Marine.

    then we replaced the solid yellow seat cover with one from Blacktip.
    It still looks pretty much like a 2006 GTIse, but the seat came out really well, and sets it off!
    This is the result:

    yeah, paid $105 for the cover + shipping. well made, w/ quality materials. The seat foam was wrapped in plastic while it was opened up.

    Went with Blacktip traction mats as well. Again, good fit and materials.

    Looks great! Did you paint the sponsons or restore them. I hate the chalky look that they develop.
