Hello Kristi Owners,
I have found a process to restore the factory color with out having to completely repaint the Kristi. My Kristi has the original factory Gel coat red color built into the fiberglass. Chris and I have been talking about my vehicle may have had a repainting but after VERY close inspection I have determined it has not. I will post a few pictures first and then will give detailed instructions on how I was able to do this amazing bit of work. I am still shocked at how good it has turned out. Now of course your paint may or may not turn out this good. It all depends on the condition of the original fiberglass. BUT I no longer feel I need to repaint my Kristi and can go many years with out that worry.

What a difference in the before and after pictures. Tell us your secret.

On a website note, your pictures did not link up because they have spaces in the names.

Thanks Chris. I couldnt figure out what I was doing wrong. I will reveal my secret Tuesday when I have the unit completely done. I have a standing offer to buy it right now and a second offer coming in Tuesday. I have alot to think about. Either way The finished product will look 100% better than what it did when I picked it up!
