    I think this is the most expensive hunk of plastic I've ever bought!

    Original had some black foam around it that I'm unable to reuse. Will have to figure something out. Was the foam factory or an after-thought?

    Totally get it. Do look us up though. It's been a while since we've been out on Washington. Love it, but when we go, we always feel like we've got to make a surgical early morning session, or we get bounced around pretty good once it gets busy. Same goes for Samm depending on the day, but I still feel like we can squeak out a couple more hours before we pull out. You've got a way more comfortable ride for that lake!

    Appreciate that. Means a lot. Shouldn't be too much longer. Shop pushed me out to the 22nd for the rest of my audio.

    Was supposed to drop her off tomorrow. Disappointed, but understand they're busy. Chomping at the bit to get her finished up.

    Was on the fence doing a chrome chromex decal for the back since I'm doing black satin on the sides, but I'm sold. Love the looks of these. Was a little nerve racking, but after measuring several times, masking and marking up with a pencil, I went for it. Going to wait for a second pair of hands before I tackle the sides.

    Thanks. Yeah, SeaDek drawing# 34415 came with 6 pieces in total. Attached their file with dims in case it helps you or anybody else who may be looking to do something similar on the same trailer fenders. Everything after the "34415-" designates colors, texture and edge style. It was a little wonky working with them as they (at least at the time) only communicated via email, so there was a fair amount of back and forth early on, but they beat their 12 week estimated lead time by roughly half. If I had to do it again and it was easy for them to adjust without a new template, I'd probably have them add a ~1/16in all the way around, just to make cleaning up the old glue easier. Old pads ripped right up and these are a breeze to install. I think they look great.

    Boat goes back to Hoglund's on the 8th for subwoofer, head unit and tower speaker install. Can't wait!
