Default New Owner - 1999 SCR 2400

Hi all,

Wanted to introduce myself and start a build thead here. I previously did a complete renovation on my Bayliner 2452 - but we hit something in the water, causing it to get a hole and beached it. They couldnt get it for a day, so it was totaled.

My new boat - this beautiful, original owner 1999 SCR 2400, is my next project. Mechanically flawless, in excellent condition, check this thread to see the progress of custom vinyl, engine performance mods, cosmetic upgrades, and some updating and refreshing! So far we have it detailed, cleaned, and stripped of all old decals and pinstriping!

Then how could I do updates, like these?

Todays updates include complete gauge and dash panel recreation, sanding down all damage and previous emblems off boat, adding 3M 1080 Vinyl Ocean Shimmer wrap to the center section, and Avery Anthracite Metallic wrap on the tops and bottoms.

Took the light housings off, painted graphite, as all the trim on the boat, window surrounds, etc.

New gauge panels will include a 3" media center, flush mount garmin ecomap gps/chartplotter, new gauges, CB, and new contrua switches, as well as 12v & 3.1A USB chargers.

All interior lights have been swapped to LED.

I simply couldn't live without a picture of a Todd post or parts on a workbench.

Todays updates... changing out the entire dash. Removing all the switches, upgrading with custom written and lit switches. Wrapping with 3m blue brushed aluminum wrap.

Cutting custom panels for Faria Kronos gauges. Adding a KMC10 media player, new cb, custom flush mount garmin GPS map. Added usb 3.0 chargers and a 12v. New steering wheel.

Wrapped fin for fun. Interior project includes removing all doors, hardware, handles, stove ETC for blue marble wrap. I FOOLISHLY spent hours taping off all the wood trim. Sanded it down, stained it. NOPE. Cannot be stained. Probably because its fake wood. Quite pissed, decided to wrap it in matte gunmetal. Wrapped the tables.

Finished the rear wrap. Tomorrow is transducer, MB quart stereo system, more wrap, and more fun stuff.

That is extremely well done and looks absolutely amazing. I have the same boat just a year newer and it certainly doesn't look like it! I'm big fan of upgrading to modern electronics and gauges and this is really nice. Again, well done.

Very nice job. What material you use for wrapping them?

Hi everyone. Todays updates includes the following:

Cut in new 6.5" Holes for the MB Quart Speakers, and 10" Sub. Ran new wires to Kicker KMC10 media center in dash, and hid the amp above the aft cabin (NA710.5 5 channel.) Sounds amazing. Wish I could get my car to sound this good.

Took the old Prop off, put on a new blackmax 15.5 x 18p 3 blade. While this was perfect for my 2452 w/ a 5.7L, I feel like its the wrong prop for a 2400 SCR w/ a 5.0L. Max speed was about 38mph @ 4400 rpm and cruise was around 30-32 @ 3600. The previous owner had a 15x17 3 blade and swears he could hit 41mph which seems incredible to me, but now Im thinking maybe he was right?

Anyhow, we also took the lower outdrive off and put in a new impeller. This outdrive is less than 3 years old, but rather safe than sorry. The fluid looked and smelled old.

The wrap pictured is a blue and black granite wrap which I'll be doing the inside cabinets and counters in. Wood trim is being covered over in gray.

We did a full oil change and filter as well.

I took the 3 battery set up with 2 separate selectors back down to 2 total batteries, and put in a new battery charger, and new marine batteries.

I'd like to change out the bilges. Any suggestions? They appear to be original. When we put the boat on the water, it took on zero water however, which is amazing to me.

Pulled out the old fuel, water, and waste chrome fills and put in black plastic with colored caps.

Edge sealed all the vinyl at the water line.

Put on a skeg shield and bow shield, since the rollers were tearing up the new vinyl. And the skeg was alittle chewed up, so the outdrive looks nice and new now, with the blue fin as well.

All my old stuff is for sale too! So if you have a Maxum SCR and are looking for excellent condition gauges, dash bezels, dash trim, the OEM depth sounder lcd / alarm setup, a white Standard Horizon VHF, OEM steering wheel, JVC speakers, a Bayliner 15" steering wheel or snap in 2452/242 carpet, humminbird fishfinder, or perko battery switch, its all pictured here:
