Hi guys

Purchased in 07 elite v C4   2 weeks ago from the original owner with 272 hours. Been doing somewhat of a restoration on it for the past 2 weeks.

I'll try to post pictures

This is the first night we got it home after a 10-hour Drive

Next morning we started the teardown, and in-depth cleaning before bringing it in the shop

Here's the work that's been performed up to date.

Complete new interior

Changed the motor oil and filter, transmission oil, v-drive oil.

New spark plugs, plug wires, cap and rotor

New belts and pulleys

Raw water pump  o ring and impeller, with the new updated backing plate with stainless steel cover

New thermostat 160,*

Took out all the gauges to buff them back to new

New fuel filter and water separator

New Roswell Tower speakers (lots more work to be done on the stereo not happy with it at all)

Remove all the stickers and badging and warnings (going to have to source some new badging)

Change the fuel lights on the boat and trailer

And close to 30 hours of wet sanding and buffing, this was by far the worst part of the build, in hindsight I should have just paid the $1,600 to get it done.

But we are starting to know this  boat in and out lol

More pictures to come as it lets me download them

And on a side note, I hit a rock Friday night so I'm looking for a surf prop for this boat. I'm trying to reach packrat for the one he has in the classified but haven't heard from him yet. If any of you guys have a surf prop for sale I'm interested please let me know

Welcome to the crew your boat looks great. You have a knack with the buffing wheel that’s a lot of work but looks awesome.

That looks fantastic. I have an 09 Elite V C4 with the same tower and exact same interior. We have had severe oxidation and fading from the sun so it's good to know that we can bring the gelcoat back to life. 

Did you use the tower that came with the boat or did you source a replacement? Our boat has the same tower but got bent in our lift. We are currently looking to either find a direct replacement or lay down some cash for Roswell Aviator.

Keep the progress pics coming!
