    Paint inside hull?

    My 550 has dark blue paint inside the hull and it's flaking off. It looks horrible. Is it common to have paint inside? My sxi doesn't. I'd like to remove it but it doesn't come off easily and I"m afraid of using some sort of chemical.

    Somebody painted it. Carefully wrap engine/exhaust/etc with aluminum foil. Spray EZ off oven cleaner on blue paint. Wait 10-15 minutes, wash it all off.

    ok with that being said I pick up a 92 750sx and was wanting to give her a good cleaning sanding and a paint. are these skis jell coated or are they painted. also what can a person do to get the old crap out of the engine bay. the grease and grime. this ski hasn't ran for about 6 years.

    Gel coat.
    If it hasn't ran in 6 years I would personally yank motor to inspect everything and replace seals. You'll than have access to clean up the inside nicely.

    Yes it’s already stripped. Now I’m trying to figure out how to restore the hull. Is the engine bay painted from factory. Any good vids on how to gel coat.

    Evidently they must have used oven paint because Easy Off didn't work. Any other suggestions? It comes off by scraping but slowly and there isn't a flat surface in the hull.

    Re: Paint inside hull?

    Which easy off did you use? I should have specified yellow can original. The new low fume stuff won't work.

    Yep, yellow can, heavy duty Easy Off. It's not a "must have", it's just ugly. Half painted and dark looking.
