1994 XP RESTORATION IMAGES (completed)
I finally finished restoring the old XP and am surprised of what a beautiful model it truly is. She's cute and comfortable to ride and well worth the very few dollars it took to do.
Hope this inspires those who have held on to their old model.

Just a thought but would that 3M chrome trim be a option on your RXP's?

I think it would look awesome. I love chrome and miss them thar days.
The 3M is a very reliable product with a powerful adhesive. I went the extra step and filled in the edge with black silicone. Probably didn't need it, but I couldn't resist. I had another post in here somewhere about shaving the edge slightly to make it fit in my bumper track. Used a mixture of soap and water as a lubricant. I used a small vice-grip and pinched the starting end after I fed it through about 16" in. Then just dragged it all the way to the front.
If using the trim for other areas, and the area has curves/bends to it, heat it up a bit with a hair dryer if you are in cool weather. I have done this on cars and bikes and had great success. I can't see it being any different on a ski as it is water proof.

Ok I'm thinking chrome trim where I "TRIED" to draw a red line would look freakin awesome! What you think Peter?

That's a nice area for it. Use one of the finer ones rather than broad in size. It will make for an elegant touch.
