1995 Seadoo XP800 restoration
I decided to pick up this XP800 and try and bring it back to life. It was in sad shape but after seeing what some of the other members have done...I decided to take on the challenge !!!
I am going to get the reproduction decals as these were in pretty sad shape. Im still looking for a seatcover...the guy I bought the ski from gave me a spx seat with the ski...but I really want a factory yellow cover... Here are a few pics of the ski when I got it.... kind of sad.
I was told there were only 2500 1995 XP800's and that they are approx. 40lbs lighter than a 1996 XP. I do have a mint 1996 XP and it appears to have a much thicker top deck. The 1995 XP800 you can actually see light thru it
I have to tell you removing the decals is a all day job...even with a 3M Magic eraser....

Try part# 219902677 for the badge. It looks like it may be close, or maybe the same size.
I have seen original seat covers on Ebay every now and then, but they want $$$$$$.

Looks great so far. Some water sanding and compound and it should be like new.

Hey Patrick, did you try contacting "Mau5head" in North Carolina about that seat? He's got a lot for sale in the SeaDoo classifieds.
