    Eliminator 235 eagle face lift

    We are just getting started on updating a 90s era eliminator eagle. As of now the plans call for new gel coat as well as new interior. There are no motor and drive upgrades planned as of now but this is just the beginning

    The trailer was redone earlier this season with new brakes, wheels and tires, bunks, and lights. Not to mention that shiny black paint. It used to be teal and full of rust.

    You can see in that last picture where somebody else painted over a stripe that ran the length of the boat just above and below the rub rail. This is an example of what not to do. If they wanted the old graphic gone they should have brought it to a quality shop that would have sanded out the old gel and sprayed the entire area white. Doing the repair right with gel coat would not have cost to much more than doing it wrong with automotive paint and it certainly would have been cheaper in the long run.

    All torn apart. Ready for lots and lots of sanding.

    Holes are filled in the transom and the boat is 90% sanded. You can see the pink stripe the previous owner tried to cover up. You can also see the spots where the gel coat has been completely sanded through. This boat was in rough shape and the gel was really wavy. It will be straight and right soon.
