    Getting closer to looking like a boat again. The pace of progress should really pick up now. Do you have projects for the interior too?

    My ski locker doesn't come out like yours, but I'll probably end up cutting it out. Otherwise they look the same.

  1. Mine is a 1986 Sunsport skier also! The skier part of the name came off when I was rubbing it out! I started wet sanding with 400 and 600 grit paper. After that i switch to the wheel using 3M super cut rubbing compound and with finishing compound. I then of course waxed it! My pole is the same height as your it's just the angle. I have the original trailer and yours is looks to be "aftermarket". You sit up a lot higher with that trailer then i do! I looked at your pictures and mine is about the same height as the driver seat. The original trailers are very prone to rust. The put carpeted plywood on the steps and fenders. I spent a bunch of time re-doing mine! Also I will be adding my motor upgrades. Gt-40p heads intake and cam. Will posts the pics. Look forward to hearing from you more since we have the same boat!!

    Those are great pics of your boat in your album. I want to know the details to make your hull shine like that. Mine needs that. Also, yours is a Sunsport and mine is a Sunsport Skier - both 1986. I see a difference in the side windows. And do you have some kind of extension on your ski pole or is it all one piece? Mine is not that tall.

  3. Great looking Sunsport. I didnt realize that the Sunsports were also made with the long windshield supports like on my Rider. Nice work on getting it looking new again.
