    Fix Up Materials

    I just bought a Yamaha GP1200 and it has a few appearance problems. There are a couple chips in the paint, the seat is ripped, and it's missing some foot pads.

    -Is there a product to buy that will fill in chips, or is bondo the only way?

    -Would I be able to just get a silver piece of vynal and replace it with the ripped one?

    -Is there a website that sells the foot pads for a 2000 Yamaha GP1200?

    Links or info about where to find what I need would be great. Thanks to anyone who replies...

    Get some hydro turf for the foot pads

    Get a new seat or seat cover from the greenhulk store

    For the chips in the paint should I just sand it down and put several coats of touch-up paint until it is flush with the rest of the body?

    Cool.... what size should I get for about 3 dime sized chips? I went to West Marine and saw a 3 oz tube, but I wasn't sure if it would be enough...
