    I've got twin Yam Saltwater 150's on my Pursuit 2470 sitting 24/7 on a lift. They are 1995 models and and the south Florida sun has done a number on the two hoods over the last 12 years. The decals are all faded out and now the "clear coat" finish is bubbling up and flaking off.

    I know how pricey these things are! I saw used, probably salvaged one on ebay with a starting bid of $225.00! I prefer to spend my $$$ on those things under the hoods and don't stint at all in that regard.

    Can these things be refinished at a "reasonable" cost or should I let them age gracelessly like myself?

    I had a hood on a smaller motor refinished by my Johnson dealer for just a few bucks. He had the Johnson white paint in small spray cans. The decals were still in good shape so he just taped over them and painted. He said if necessary he could have had some new decals made. They are hard to find for a 40 year old motor but custom decal shops can handle the order. I would think you could have this done without any problem. Just find a good paint shop and tell them your problem.

    I wouldn't use a spray paint. Sand it down and respray it with a professional spray gun. Not a can. You can havv new decals made.

    find a body man somewhere who is slow and he'll do it for cash...i'm lucky as the facility i manage has a collision center so its easy for me...decals can be had on ebay cheap and youre engine will look like new...the lowers can be rattle canned but the hood should be a proffessional looking job...it makes all the difference in the world...if i could post a before and after picture on here youd see what i mean...
