bingo
2006 through 2010 oil baths were supposed to solve all the problems.
When I ordered my trailer and options in 2007, first thing I told JW, no oil bath Hubs. Give me the tried and true grease.
Good call. I had oil bath hubs and they were flawless but I knew it was only a matter of time so it went with the bearing buddies

All polished and cleaned up, not bad for 12 year old gel.

Got rid of the raw stainless MMW tail for a pretty shiny polished one as well.

What did you do with the raw one? I've been thinking about trying one.

They weren’t positive on the blue and had played around quite a bit. I had sent them a powder coat sample and asked to get as close as they could to that. In the sun is beyond amazing, so excited and ship date is next Friday.
Can’t say anything but how awesome once again it was dealing with Marty and Brittany over at Livorsi, and i know i had her going insane at one point, but she killed it, for me.

White gauges are going to pop. Will look so much better IMO
Yea I was set on the platinum, and the wife said, wonder how it’d look in white, i never even thought of that, and yea now I’m super stoked with her thought there.

I agree. The white leather on the Isotta steering wheel with the polished spokes looks fantastic! My question for those that have the white leather is how easy are they to keep clean and maintain? I always seem to have oil or grease residue on my hands from food, chips, sunscreen, checking the engine, etc. I have the same exact plastic steering wheel that you originally had and have thought about updating as you are, but am concerned about the maintenance, especially in white.

It’s vinyl, doesn’t matter what color it’ll eventually get dirty. So i’ll use same as i do on my white seats, light spray of Xtreme Vinyl Mist after each outing and every few trips a spray and wipe with Conditioner Mist

What year is your shit box? I guess mines not worth 3 dollars, so I guess it’s time to dump more $ in it. Gauges are the place to start. Less is more it seems compared to what we started with.

Mines an 08, i can’t for the life of me figure out why yours hasn’t sold yet. Could be real fun to do your gauges cause the colors.

So sadly the gauges are going back. No idea what happened, they sent me a proof of a beautiful blue, i ok’d them, they arrived and they are aquamarine 😭. As they gotta redo idk if I’ll keep the sparkle needle vs their normal lime one.

Got around to doing the other inner fender, with the composite material from Budman. While at it played my hand at some deep polishing as well.

Easier to float the boat to put that fender back on..... no better excuse for the day.

This is the lime i just really wanted the sparkle, but idk it came out way darker than it was supposed to be, so the lime will most likely be the way we go. Really curious how it’ll go in the morning tho, i really assume it’ll go well, but you never know until you get on the phone.

They also did the trim card, but for whatever reason they printed it in a hunter like green.

Ol @Cole Brewed done and spent some more of my money lol. He got some new lights for his trailer and once i saw i had to copy him. Already had done the stainless trim rings and 15” slimline’s on trailer, but had the series 15 with rubber grommet for the clearance lights. These aren’t a huge deal or pop but definitely worked out perfect to tie all together. These are another only at Extreme product tho.

Elbow grease and more.
Fenders cleaned up nice. What was your process?
I actually kinda did bad, lol used my Zephyr cotton pad and white rouge with a 4.5” grinder. So was spinning at 12000rpm vs 3000-3500 lol. I did order a variable speed 2500-4000rpm 9” and will redo the one as well do the other. I only did about 1/3 of the one before noticing they were swirling a bit. Spoke with Robert at Zephyr and ordered the new buffer and some vented wheels from him. He also gave me some pointers. But all in all it’s fairly fast and easy even with the wrong stuff so the right stuff should really make them shine.

He’s about 5 miles away, but I’d rather pay the 9$ shipping than deal with the attitude.

We really need to have RD start some classes on bullying around here. I really hope @HydroSkreamin doesn’t keep being mean and bullying me around now!!
Pretty bolts.

Not sure what came out better my needle nose or these AN washers.

All done now, came out sexy and happy as all get out that @HydroSkreamin saw these and pointed it out to me.
