    Joining the HX crew with this rebuild (Pic Heavy)

    Picked up a 96 HX and an STS late last fall on a double trailer for $600 bucks. Really just wanted the trailer to turn into a 4 place stand up trailer. Decided to rebuild the HX and probably going to part out the STS to make back some change. I have very limited Seadoo experience to be generous so shout out to Rmason for all the help.

    Little backstory, neither ski ran. Both skis were wasp infested and had been sitting in the sun for a couple years. The HX supposedly had an electrical issue. Decide to see if she would fire up anyway. Hooked up a battery, poored a little gas down the carbs, and she purred for a few seconds! Hoping for the best, I decided to rebuild the carbs and hope for the best. Anyway, I am sure I am missing quite a bit of information but here is the picture book below (sorry for the rotated pics).

    Here are a few first day pics:

    Trying to clean the whole ski, take off decals and turf, etc:

    After a couple chilly days of pressure washing:

    Wet sanded and buffed next (thanks again Rmason!):

    Painted the bilge and engine with appliance epoxy:

    Got more help from Rmason with Jet Trim seat cover and engine alignment then replaced fuel lines, exhaust, water lines, etc:

    Currently waiting on some Seadoo Mineral oil and I will try to crank her up again.

    Final update. Got it fired up and ready to rock. Finished up knee pad covers and a few other minor things like bilge pump, extra drain plug, etc. Probably taking it to the lake this weekend to test!
