    I dunno about Abbott.... but I used Sherwin Williams Sunfire for the body paint, it's tough stuff; my mechanic says it's the same stuff they use at the factory.... my colors were done with House Of Kolor, they use it on the bikes they pimp out... expensive, looks great, but not as tough as I wished for. I'll stick with the SW stuff all over for my next boat.

    Close up of the House of Kolor... notice the metalflake in it... looks much better in person, in the bright sun.

    Couple questions:

    1) about how much does it cost to get a ski painted provided that I remove all of the stickers, pads, etc first? I know prices will vary depending on what you get but I'm looking for a rough estimate.

    2) Smitty: do you still have the stock bars on your ski or have you upgraded? If you have upgraded to what and how does it look now.
