    The Pro 785/1200 hulls have a different sponson. All the other models use the same sponsons though.

    Yeah, im bringing back the dead, but I started it, so its ok.

    I'm looking for new sponsons for my Virage. All the sets I have are old and faded, and Im planning to re gel the bottom in black, so I want something that looks nice too.
    I can't seem to find anything for the Virage. Short of buying new stock ones for $80+ a set, who makes some?
    I see the MSX sponsons are shorter, how hard would it be to fit a set of the PRO hull ones on here, (being as they are shorter) or is that just a stupid idea?

    OR as an alternative, if the stock ones are sufficient - is there any way to bring back the black color of the stock ones without painting them?

    If they are just sun faded, not too scratched and beat up, you can try a heat gun or very carefully with a propane torch. Heating the plastic will release the oils deep down inside and bring some color back. You must be careful to not heat too long in one spot and be very even and back and forth with your heating motion. Once some color is back, you can try armor-all type product to keep and enhance some of the color.
    It'l work with some patience, but easier to just buy some if you can find em.

    Another member recently had good results using a chemical/solvent product on old rub rails.

    That thread is around here somewhere
