    Color change

    Hi all, my first post and looking for help. I just picked up a 2012 GTX 215 w/74 hrs. It's white and gold... I really don't like the gold. Every time I look up this ski any replacement parts are the gold color. What other ski is the same but not in the same color... The pics is a pic of the ski the week before I bought it. The Spark is mine too... Thanks for your help...

    more than likely only gtx parts will fit of the same generation so that limits your options. You could always order another set and have them painted to the color you like.

    Any models with the S3 hull from 2010 to 2015 will have interchangeable parts such as hood pieces, mirrors etc. Spend some time comparing Google images and the parts diagrams.


    Before and after pics of my RXT-X. New seat cover some strategic decal removal and a gray hood deflector off a different model.

    Canuck thinks for the info. I too have been looking and checking part numbers but I just was not sure. Like your look of your ski. Can you post more pics?

    It has been pissing rain here if it slows down I'll roll the ski out and get some better pics.

    Here's what I did for cosmetic changes:
    - Removed most of the warning labels.
    - Removed the yellow Seadoo stickers below the rub rail.
    - Replaced the seat cover.
    - Replaced the front hood deflector with a gray one from a 2014 GTX LTD.
    - Front deflector RXT-X sticker is a red / gray one from a 2016 RXT-X.
    - Replaced the yellow alignment stickers on the X steering with red ones.

    I'm thinking about new reg numbers in silver to match the front hood.

    You can also play around with photoshop to get a better idea of what it will look like. I did some colour changes to a white 2016 RXT-X with photoshop.
