Cleaning up my 04 Tracker Avalanche
« on: February 06, 2021, 08:22:55 AM »
To be honest I'm somewhat ashamed. I had no idea how bad it was! LOL  :puking:
By the end of last year when I was getting the boat ready for it's winter nap I did a walk around. The poor boat looked like it just came back from a week long bender at the Roxbery. I lost most of the decals on my 04 115hp Mercury. The decals were replaced by dirt. Seats have tears and patched with flex seal tape. Side rails faded from sun and pitted. This was just the start of my list.

Since I had shoulder surgery this winter I needed a project and my plan was to pay a little respect to the old girl. She needed a facelift of Joan Rivers proportion!
I'll be posting more as soon as I get the boat into the garage.

What a difference $45 can make.

  • Heat Gun to remove the old
  • Goo-gone to clean up the mess
  • 2000 grit wet-sand
  • Rubbing compound Polish
  • New decals
  • Fresh coat of wax
Total time 3-4 hrs
