    Greetings all! New to the Forum and was told this would be a great spot to post. About a year ago I bought a barely running Mirage Super Sport with the Mercury 175 xr-2... complete with electrical issues and no front seats.

    This will be its second summer on the water in my hands; after the tune up and a ton of custom work this thing is a blast! Let me know what you think!

    Mod list:
    -Custom built front seats
    -Rewrapped/updated interior
    -Retrofitted Jetco Stomp Grate
    -One-off SEA DEK kit
    -200a battery isolator w/push button power supply, voltage gauge and solar charging setup
    -dual boatpluglight.com led wake flames
    - custom led lighting


    Audio:
    - kicker 6.5 marine coaxials
    - kicker 4" marine coaxials cut into fiberglass
    -kicker 200.2 powersports amp
    -kicker 600.1 sub amp
    -kicker CompRT 10" in downfire enclosure
    -jvc bluetooth only source unit

    **all work done 100% by myself with thr exception of the upholstery; that's an art I don't dare butcher .

    Side note, the seadek templates i made turned out so well that they kept them on file. If anyone wants to use them and save themselves the tedious work, SCWake.com has the file!

    Thanks! Its a ton of fun. I live on a lake that's got a bunch of bars/wineries etc so its good to hop around and do tow sports.

    Best part is i can actually tow it with my WRX so it fits my life pretty well

    Thanks! Since they didn't make a kit for it, I had to make the templates out of mylar for the job. It was a long process but I am super happy with the outcome
