    It's home!

    Well, I went and picked up my first PWC today! Grabbed some buddies and made a 2.5 hour roadtrip to Indiana. It is completely disassembled so it could be painted. Now I get to put it all back together. I made myself a HUGE excel sheet to make sure I had all of the vital parts. I don't really mind having to put it back together either because I will know the ski inside and out, I will know it is done right, and I have a buddy with a 96 XP that I can use for reference. The engine has all new parts waiting to be put together. The list of brand new still in box parts is as follows:

    Gas Cap
    Fuel Selector
    Primer Kit
    Hot Rods Crank
    WSM Platinum Pistons (and top end)
    ProK flame arrestors (with Fly prefilters)
    Driveshaft
    SBT couterbalance
    Fuel Tank
    Hydroturf
    Inner and outer rub rails

    Also with the ski is:
    Extended pump (like the 95 XP 800)
    Full UMI steering
    Single gauge hood
    Worx sponsons
    R&D Intake grate
    finger throttle
    Spare VTS
    2 place galvanized trailer (really nice, but not in picture, borrowing my friends single)

    Here are a couple pics from my phone....



    If you are wondering about the paint....it is Cadillac Pearl White....the picture makes it look grey, but it looks AMAZING in the sun. The seat is definitely getting recovered, probably in black....I'm sure I will be asking a MILLION questions as I go (search is my friend). I hope to have it ready to go in 3 weeks...
