    Talking 2002 GPR Face Lift

    Started redoing the cosmetics on my ski this week. So far I have removed the Turf, Rubrails and Stock decals.

    I have an allmost perfect set of of replacement Blue cowlings to put on, new 06 Black seat, Black HydroTurf, new rubrailing, and 04 1300r decals (with the 1300r logo removed)

    Will also be installing an old style Riva plate, R&D tabs and the Riva "performance" Cone

    Tommorow I will be buffing the hull / topside before the trim gets put back on.

    It seems to be a 1 1/2" narrower mainly in the front area where you sit. The foam seems to be shaved down a bit at a smoother angle.

    Well decided to trade the Black seat for an 04 Blue seat from WFO.

    Ski is in shop getting new aftermarket starter, Wave-Eater kit, and the Riva / Boyesen reed stuffers. Looking to keep the ski reliable.
    Would try to install myself, just dont have the area to work at it.

    Will post some new pics in next week.

    Thumbs up

    I used 3M micro finish to buff, then Mothers polish and wax to finish off. I don't plan on using rivets on the corners. If you want to use rivets, new ones come in the kit with the Hydro-Turf. I am going to use SS 10/24 1" screws with SS lock nuts so I can remove them if I need.

    E.S.
