Hmm.. depends what you need.

Have you got the brown coloured metal dash trim that has the bubbly paint problem? If so the best advice is tot remove it, sand it and re-paint or ideally have it powder coated. if you really want it looking snazzy and don't mine spending a little money get it brushed and anodised.

For cup holders just replace them all with these - much better in the long run and look 10 times better than the plastic ones (especially once the plastic onces have got stained) - http://www.wakeside.com/product/boat...+inch.do<br />
Hope that helps.

Hi

Cheers for the link I'll get some of those ordered

Picked the boat up today 450 mile round trip

Got it home ok, Boats ok but needs lots of TLC engine is seized and had a look over it today and it looks like salt water has got in the left bank of cylinders

I've got penertrating oil sat in the bores at the moment, will take the head off tomorrow if it still won't turn

I after a manual for it to can't seem to find one for a 96 sr also I have two banks of switches that don't seem to do anything apart from light up the dash and make a little display come on next to the switches But thats a later job

Also looking through the history someone has paid over £300 in labour to change a starter motor!!!

Anyway thats enough boring you all for now

Thanks again

anyone got a 4.3 lying about they don't want?

Gaz, you can pick up a rebuild in South Africa (4.3l Mercruiser)) for around 3500 sterling (ZAR 50 000). don't know how this compares? :?:
