Chrome Peeling Q?


Recommended Posts

I've been out of the loop for a bit, apologies if this has been addressed. Search yielded no obvious answer.

I can't remember what year Malibu changed the Chrome Emblems '08 maybe? Can these be retrofitted onto older boats? I've had enough of the crappy chrome emblems from the earlier boats. My understanding was that the newer ones were to be stainless and then chrome plated.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

Why would you plate stainless steel. Nickel is what makes up chrome and stainless is made with nickel. My emblems are pitted and are a mess to. Would like to get some in stainless.

I had the same problem, and here is what I did:

1) Replaced dash bezel from dealer for $100. The new ones seem to be alot better than the old ones. Don't know why, but they are using them on the 2010's.

2) Upgraded the tower emblems with the new ss "Malibu" ones (which I think they started using in 2009). These are not a direct fit, and will require you to drill an additional hole in your tower, but they look great, and you can put led lights in them for even more bling. I think they around $50.00 ea

3) Interior "malibu" emblems. I sanded mine down and painted them a semi-gloss black (which is the color of the vinyl that is around them) and toned down the bling in that area. I think it looks really cool.

All of my other chrome was in good shape.
