    S3 Hull Rub Rails

    Can S3 hull rub rails be removed and replaced without damaging them? I wanna paint mine. And how do you get them off?

    Same with all newer model SD. They are channel clipped and use a 1/2" wide double-sided 2-way tape to hold in place. Removing them will also mess up the 2-way tape and may need to re-apply. You remove them by removing the outer screws (front/rear bumpers) then lifting from bottom to unlatch them. The tape will make it fun

    Painted rub-rails may seem "cool" but after couple bumps they will look ratty. Mine get scuffed from boat docks or bumping other skis when floating.
