Heat gun bump rail trick
Its amazing what you can do with a heat gun, Dont know if this was posted befor so thought I would post it anyway.
Update, Used a Kawasaki Heat gun on hi and all I did was keep the heet gun 2 1/2 to 3" From bump rail and as soon as it started to change color to Black I started moving in a strait slow line about 3' section then went back for another pass on the mid then a third pass on the top of rail, if you move to fast you may miss a spot and have to go back, this was on a 06 STX 15F, no shrinkage at all and brought it back to Life in color,

It works great. I've done it. Just do the heating process with your rails attached to the ski. It tends to shrink the plastic and the holes wont match up. I lost about 3/4" over a 4' section. Trying to reattach it was a PITA. Had to redrill all the holes.
