    Anyone turf a 550sx?

    I bought a turf kit for my 550sx just wondering what everyone did on the tops of the tray rails where the screws that hold the rubber mats on go. I was thinking fill it with spray foam and turf over it

    I saw someone posted here just a couple days ago they filled them in with marine Tex or some kind of epoxy.

    I saw that too. He said it was really expensive and time consuming though.

    A friend of mine used some yoga mat on the side cutouts of the tray then a “fillet knife” type to trim the yoga mat to the curve of the tray too. Not sure if that could be used on the tops of the rails though too?

    Thought the marine tex was a groovy idea.

    Just did mine, but it did take time Boz. Fiberglassed to fill the large voids, marine Tex for finish. Wasn’t expensive and I was looking to do it right. This ski was painted before mats...but paint isn’t necessary.

    Hmm yea. Maybe I’ll fill it with foam and glass over it with a few layers of cloth
