    Inkaddict's 2000/2006 Gprxp build

    Well since all the cool kids are doing it I figured it was about time I got my a$$ in gear. I had picked up a 2006 Rxp with a broken timing chain and 11 bent valves a few months ago and then found a gorgeous 2000 gpr... I've been at it for 2 weeks in my spare time (which isn't much thanks to a 6 day a week work schedule) First I got to tear them all down... It took 2 people and a 30 pack of miller... I want to thank everyone thats helped me out so far. First and foremost Addicted and Beerdart for answering all my stupid questions, Rx951 for some pump recomendations, all the Jersey boys for their support and drive, Howard for having tons of extra parts and everyone thats built one of these. You guys have all been my inspiration for this build.

    TJ

    Gotta love the $hit that builds up in a gpr hull over the course of time. I removed the mid wall and made the cuts. Scrubbed the hull out With Industrial Zep degreaser concentrate.. I was halloucinating for about 3 days from the fuems. I decided to go with the Efi Gpr tank and im still not sure why. Make sure if you use an Efi tank you check to make sure the float for the Seadoo fuel pump isnt resting on the hump inside the tank.

    Next I removed the stock inserts from the pump tunnel, ride plate, and intake grate. I had some aluminum laying around so I cut some heavy dutty brackets out. Im going to drill them for m10 bolts and use threaded ss inserts. I recomond not using an angle grinder to cut aluminum this thick.. If you do DEFINATELY wait a little while to pick it up off the floor . Next we had to ground all the hex holders in the hull out. This is where having a short philapino friend is a HUGE help.. Thanks Chico...

    Next i started to mount the electric box in the front of the ski. I wanted to be able to remove it so iI riveted the box to a piece of aluminunm rather than the hull. I bolted the bracket to the oem fuel tank strap inserts. This also allowed me to bend the box back slightly so it clears the gpr bucket.

    Next I removed all the Hydro turf that was added to the hull.. The previous owner thought it would be a good idea to use an angle grinder to scuff the hull for adhesion. You should have to take a common sense test before buying power tools. I use Pro Strength Goof Off in aweresol cans to remove old turf glue.. It works amazing! I also filled the hull cuts with expnding foam and capped it with some mid wall pices and 5200.

    Next I started my arts and crafts project of reinforcing the pump tunnel. I used 9 sheets of woven fiber glass, West Systems Epoxy, and a paper template. This is my 3rd time doing it this way and Im starting to like it more than the premade reinforcements. After each layer with a brush I use ruber gloves to squeeze the resin through and rid any air bubbles. While I was doing this I also decided to add 5 layers to the stock intake grate mount since I will be reinforcing it with aluminum anyway.

    While I was waiting for the resin to flash I finished mounting the guage cluster. It didnt come out as pefect as I would have like but it will do till I come up with a better sollution. I heated the inside with a heat gun and used an old 657x piston i had laying arround to roll the contours. After walking away from it pissed for 2 days I decide to go back and finish and it didnt turn out as bad as I thought.. Ill figure out how to fill the gap in the front and keep the trim in place at a later date. After orking all day I wanted to get 1 more thing finished so I mounted the DES post in the glove lid.
