    Official 1980's Weekender/Sundancer 300 thread

    Well I have been doing quite a few changes to my boat and I also know we've got quite a few of us on here now. I don't really consider what m doing a "restoration" so instead of doing a restore thread I thought I'd start this and hopefully we can share some good ideas. Here's a few of the things I've been up to.

    First was painting he cabin. It has made a big difference with brightness and updating.



    I also built and painted this shelf. It's worked out great.


    I replaced the old table with this cherry veneer table.


    As you can see in these pics I also replaced the carpet with hardwood teak and holly.

    Replaced all of the old camper style lights with these all LED lights


    Installed blue LEDs


    Thanks to Quints wonderful suggestion, I installed these stainless cup holders



    I installed this L lounger found on Craigslist from a 1999 370EC and the pedestal table purchased from eBay.


    You can also see in the pics I removed the rails and teak from the stern and gunwales and had brushed anodized aluminum pieces custom made to finish it off.

    Current projects in the works include removing pin striping, which is done but the top side still needs to be buffed and polished. The other exciting one is the canvas. Our canvas guy starts this week replacing all canvas with the tan Sea Ray color canvas. We are very excited about that project. That's all for now. Please feel free to leave comments or suggestions. More importantly, lets see what you're doing with yours!!!! Its time for some new ideas!!!! :)

    When you changed out the lights to LED did you have to do anything speical? I would like to do the same with my cockpit area and head?

    Nothing special. Got replacement fixtures on eBay and just wired them up to existing wires and mounted with supplied brackets. Very easy and very bright!!!

    I meant to add this to my question, which company did you get the LEDs from?

    I got them from eBay. Sorry, I don't recall the brand. I can check next weekend. However, if you search 12v led lights on eBay, there's thousands to choose from.

    Canvas guy started on the new canvas. Hope to get some pics this weekend. Any other weekender owners out there?? I'd love to get some new ideas!! The other thing I did recently was painted the helm vinyl tan. I will try to get a pic of that this weekend too.

    That's terrible!!!! I wish I could. He does great work and is crazy cheap. Full canvas is gonna cost me $1,200. He's retired and does it on the side as his retirement gig. So how did the stupid bird get in your boat?? We're you in there when it happened??
