Default Cafe time to update

I finally had a chance to wet sand my Cafe, 20 hours of sanding later its now in 2000 grit. Now time to repaint new stripes and Cig emblems. Then complete buff and detail. I have been kicking around doing the emblem in a light charcoal carbon fiber back ground with airbrushed highlights to make it look like it is coming out from the side, red #1 and black lettering with a drop shade. Ruby Red stripes with silver outline on the sides. Hopefully if it have some time I can get it shot by the middle of the week. I figured I would use the Covid 19 down time to my advantage.

Guys, any idea where to get an original style switch for the cabin control panel. I am looking for the the upper switches that have the amber light on them. I though they could be a Sierra but I could not find the exact one.

Tank, how does the full cover you bought fit your Cafe? Mine is worn and I am looking for one as well, mine also has a swim platform.

It was from one of the F2 Top Gun I was told. It bunches at the bow slightly because I don’t pull
iy under the bow stop / roller. but fits fine for my needs. I use it as a storage cover not a towing cover or anything so it works well to keep the sun off when it’s outside.

Well I got the silver and red stripes on and am working on the emblem. Hopefully they will be done tonight. Getting closer.



Background for emblem complete.

Stripes and emblems are completed. Still need to buff the entire boat and stripe the deck. Then pull the drives and recondition them. Hopefully I will be ready in about three weeks.

That is what I was going for. Simple is classy and timeless, I still have to paint the upper pin stripes and Cafe script on both sides. I am going to increase the size close to double the original.
Tank how is your Cafe coming?
