Graphics for a 200

lakeaustinskierlakeaustinskier Posts: 401 Crazy Baller

Does anyone need to replace some graphics on their 200?

I accidently dinged the graphics on my 2017 200. Not a huge deal, however, since I have a boat partner, I need to make it right and fix it. I’m being told that I can only buy the entire graphics package for both sides (port and starboard). From what I’m seeing there are 8 total pieces (4 each side).

I can’t purchase individual pieces. We are talking ONLY about the graphics – NOT the plastic letters.

Total package is around $625. Does anyone need a random graphic? I’m hoping I can grab the piece I need then sell off the other pieces and try to recover some of the cost of the entire package.

PM me.
Thanks!

    @lakeaustinskier I see what you're wanting to do but really the best thing to do is keep them because at some point you'll need them yourself then you'll be kicking yourself for selling the leftovers. Plus it will take you 10 years to sell off piece by piece as most folks will keep the full set when they buy themselves.

    @rockdog for sure I understand what you are saying - except - I did this several years ago and when I went back to "reuse" the leftover graphics they had become unusable due to age (even after stored inside the house).

    There are many that custom built decals for MX bikes, I would look for one of those and custom built only the dinged piece. Also would cut a white and a black stripe to cover it until I order and receive the new replacement and maybe it would be good enough to leave it as is...

    Looks like I have someone who is interested. Thanks for the advice.

    My neighbor bought a 200 with the progressive graphics. Some of them were dinged up. He just removed all of the vinyl stickers. Looks really nice.

    Call around to a few sign shops, I bet someone can do 1 custom piece and get really close to original for way less than the whole kit.

    Doubt it @skihacker I have a sign business and the time involved in setting up a file for print that will only ever be used once is not worth the effort unless I put a high dollar on it. You said yourself "custom". I recently told the same thing to a mate who replaced both sides of his 200 with the Sheerline graphic. Easier to buy it.

    The guys who do the originals wouldn't just do one, the idea is they do a run put them on the shelf and move on to something else.

    @lakeaustinskier I would seriously consider just doing the White and Black strip along the top, it almost covers the whole damaged section.

    I agree with removing the decals and leave only the letters. My 200 has letters only and looks much better IMHO than having the other decals on the side of the boat.

    Here would take it to my local body shop guy-he's a master. Would drop a new line on there and you would never know it happened for almost nothing.

    Since the boat is damaged--if you want to drop it off at my place...

    Sharp colors! Love it.

    Buy the whole set and leave it indoors. Your future self or the next owner will thank present you.

    My guess is, one piece out of new kit won't match the original graphic in color.

    @lakeaustinskier Is that boat close bow? If so would love to see more pix! It might be the best looking 200 i saw...

    I have always thought the the progressive graphics would look better without the part above the rub rail. Remove that and keep the graphics below the rail.

    I think it looks better without the graphics

    black and red looks best with no graphics on it.

    I'm happy to see that i'm not the only boat owner who is a bit OCD when it comes to how the boat looks. That's a sweet ride too.
