    Image0r's x45 build thread

    My uncle had a pair of jet skis sitting in his garage collecting dust. They were collecting dust for years. I decided to buy them. After doing more research, I discovered what I had. Suddenly the idea came to me.. Let's restore it.

    I created this thread to track the progress of it as it's painted and restored.


    The first thing we needed to do was buy a jet ski stand to work on it. My uncle had a better idea. Let's build one he said... Below are the pics of the jet ski stand and the hull. I also purchased the last decal kit i believe that is available for the x45 craft. Below you will find the pictures and modifications the craft already has done to it.

    Looks like you have a good start. Mine has just about everything you listed except for the higher compression heads, which will be coming soon. I used the sled reeds from a Fusion sled on mine with good results. If you can find an Ocean Pro ride plate, thats a great add on too.

    Thanks guys. Not sure on the prop specs. Hopefully my uncle remembers. Anyway to tell what kind incase his amnesia kicks in?

    My mistake on mod list! I'm still a jet ski noob. More of a motorcycle guy.

    Took a few pictures of the jet ski stand we welded together and painted. All in all, I think we dumped less than 100 bucks to make this. The best part being it's completely adjustable to accommodate other skis. The wheels have a purple tent to them. I was watching a Batman marathon on TV a few weeks ago and decided to finish the frame off with with a "joker green".
