    JS 650SX 1989 restoration

    Well here it is I have started a full restoration of a JS650sx this boat was mine from 1994-1996 sold it and went back into my hands about a month ago. I have pics which I will post on later and full resto process.
    Just a quick idea Im undertaking full hull repair, reinforcing and painting. Full engine rebuild, coffman exhaust powder coating, exhaust manifold and intake ceramic coating (black). Alum handpole power gloss black. full water lines replacement, full hull imron paint (kawi green). Bumper removal and pads replacements.....full engine replacement and porting here and there. This boat used to put close to 53 mph with a light rider (stalker tested) back in 95. Now im looking for a fun reliable boat. Today I dropped the parts to be powdered will see how they come out.....hull is fully stripped and during the next 3 days I hope to complete all the glass/resin work.
