    23' Eliminator resto-mod pics

    I bought a 23' Eliminator off the board a few months back, to find out it had a rotten floor and three rotten knee's. I did a full restoration/modernization on the interior and attached pic's below:

    Floor and transom before and in-progress:

    Very nice. Imron, gel, Interlux? Your splatter pattern came out nice, as well as the other mods.
    You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift. You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong. You cannot help the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer. You cannot further the brotherhood of man by encouraging class hatred. You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich. You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than you earn.

    The floor, transom, and seat frame are gel-coated and splattered by Pro-Fiberglass in Walker, LA. I did a ton of other work, including:
    New floor
    knees
    rear seat frame
    side consoles
    Zero-effort controls
    real carbon fiber dash
    dash molding
    steering wheel
    4 cup holders
    raised front seats 1 1/4"
    move front seats forward 3"
    hinged the rear seat for storage under
    moved rear seat back 12" and shortened rear hatch
    all new Yamaha and Livorsi gauges
    red bezels
    red grab handle
    locking, sealed glove box
    Yamaha dual key switch
    4 polk marine speakers
    switch panel
    Ice chest hold-down kit
    Yamaha oil tanks, 2
    removed 2x4 braces from seat and hatch, filled holes
    painted back and bottom of rear seat, as well as bottom of hatch
    clean, polish, cut, screw, and spend a lot of money!

    Very nice. All of the mods and updates look well worth it, and as you know by now, you're not supposed to count the costs!

    Boat looks awesome! I really like those 23's. How do you do a splatter pattern like that?

    I wanted to at least hang some motors off the back before posting pics of the boat. It looks a little plain and naked on the outside. . .

    It's coming along great! Looks like the tanks mounted fine on those braces. Frees up more room back there. Can't wait to see some complete pics and running time.
