    Hello all, I've been reading and researching a ton so I thought I'd make a project thread and see if I can get some insight from all the geniuses on here. I know it's a bit of a novel, but I thought it better to roll it all into one post for continuity. I have a 2002 GTX RFI with ~130 hrs...

    1996 Seadoo XP800 Restoration Project

    Hey! Just joined the forum today as I prepare to start working on an old Seadoo that I just acquired. I ended up paying a grand for both a 96 Seadoo XP800 and a 93 Seadoo SP with a double trailer (both skis run alright so I feel relatively confident in the fact that I made a good deal)...

    RESTO Unforeseen FULL resto on a 99 GTI. Picture heavy!

    TL;DR I bought a crappy GTI, now it is not a crappy GTI. So, a 1999 GTI pops up on eBay. My dad calls me about it and says it would be a fun way to get my other half into watersports, as shes a bit scared of driving my Sidewinder. Went to see the item, listed as "Works fine, just has a high...
