    Re: 1988 wetjet barn find build thread. back to showroom condition

    More wet jet goodies today. Was talking to my contact at the wet jet NOS warehouse. Cross referencing the accessory part numbers available back in the day. Stumbled on an add on rubber front bumper. I've never seen one on any of the few wet jets I've seen. Also never seen one on any online pix. Low and behold, there was only one left in the warehouse, so of course I snagged it. Also snagged the add on rear view mirror as well. This boat will not only be showroom, but will have all add on accessories that were available for it; bilge, glove box latch mod, fuel gauge, air intake update kit, oem mirror, oem storage cover, and the super rare front bumper. It's easy to snag add on parts when they are at rock bottom clear out prices.

    She may be awkward, slow, and a sit down. But, she's a piece of pwc history and now preserved with every add on, she'll be pretty special and unique.

    YIKES!

    I am assuming that is the same spot where the factory would have installed it?

    Correct. I'm not a big fan of marking up decals, but this is where it goes. The kiit s pretty nice. Comes with a paper template that shows you exactly where to drill. The reason it goes there is on the inside of the hull, look at yours when you can, there is black foam on each side. There's a horseshoe cut out in the upper corner of each side. The hole lines directly with that horseshoe cut out so you can get the pipe through it. It's a pretty slick set up. There are holes pre-drilled below the drive shaft for the pump itself. So easy bolt on there. Also the Wet jet has a wiring harness that is plug-and-play for the wiring on the pump. One additional hole needed to be drilled for the switch. And you'll notice on the dash of yours there's a place which says bilge on, off. Small hole there as well. Now that it's done it looks perfectly Factory. I'm fairly impressed. More pictures later this week

    This may be the last NOS add on bumper for the wet jet known to man. In the few pictures of wet jets out there, I've never seen one on one. This was the last one buried on a shelf in the warehouse in minnesota. Score!

    Ran into a snag 2 weeks ago. Tapered Fittings on top of tank were seized and spinning the pressed in inserts. Thought of modding the tank but found a NOS tank cheap. New tank installed, fuel line insulation per add on oem kit, new oem fuel filters, new gas gauge oem kit, and new clunk's and line in tank.
