Newb here in Charlotte, NC area (Lake Norman), just picked up my first ski, a 2004 FXHO with 190 hours. She runs strong, but needs some refreshing.

She is in the shop currently, trying to locate source of strong gas odor in the engine compartment. Nothing obvious to me, hoses look hooked up, no standing gas in the bilge, stinks up the whole garage. Hopefully they will find the culprit and get her fixed.

Need some info if anyone cares to chime in

Need a glove box lid, this part is unobtanium. There is 1 on ebay for $150 beans. no bueno.

Need to replace front compartment gas shock. anyone have a part number for an aftermarket shock that will work?

The seat has a couple small tears, I may recover it.

There is no rear boarding step on these skis. is it necessary, or not. TBD.

I am going to use it to go fishing, will go down that rabbit hole soon I believe once I get through the necessities. (racks, rodholders, gps / fishfinder.....blah blah blah

Thanks for having me, great forum, wealth of knowledge.
