cleaning up the ski
i recently picked up a 98xpl which is in pretty good shape. i noticed some fading, but once i pulled the old registration numbers off, there was more fading than i thought. here are some before and after pics.
the steps were as follows
1 - clean ski thoroughly using soap and water, then wipe down with acetone.
2 - lightly wet sand with 1500 grit wet/dry sandpaper
3 - apply 3M fibreglass restorer and wax (2 coats)
4 - apply 3M marine ultra performance wax.
all said and done it took 3-4 hours to complete. i highly recommend the 3M products. they are a bit pricey, but they work great. the pictures don't really do it justice, but the ski looks brand new again.

here are some before and after pics of my 96xp. i didn't have too many good before pics, but the ski was extremely faded and now looks new again.
