    custom paint and hull damage repair pics

    I thought I would start a thread of some of the repairs and paint work I have done on skis. Atleast the ones I have pics of. I will have to post pics of the paint work later when I get some pics.

    My first rxp

    I bought this rxp already damaged.

    The rxp on the trailer is the same ski after the repair. Sorry, I cant find a better pic of the finished product.

    The guy I bought it from said his kid was playing around trying to splash him on another ski and got to close. The piece diddnt get ripped off until he tried to ride it back. This ski would have been a great doner for a gprxp project. Had I known then what I know now I would not have fixed it.

    Here are a couple pics of the damage my buddy Dave did to his ski before I could finish fixing mine.
    I forgot to take a pic before we started the repair but you get the idea.
    The damage was not huge but is in a bad spot. He also broke his grate, ride plate, and smoked his wear ring. Check out my thread on why aftermarket plastic wear rings suck.

    I have the replacement ride plate on its way. (thanks Steven) This ski should be back on the water by next weekend.

    Are those from a camera phone? They are all out of focus.

    Yeah, I guess I should have thought up a better story for that one.
