    Default 2006 Supra Launch Upgrade Project

    We picked up this 2005 Supra Launch 21V this summer for a winter project, we will be installing Fresh Air Exhaust, new ballast system with reversible pumps and new bags, all new interior, new stereo, updated tower racks so we can put surfboards in them, and a bunch of RGB lighting both underwater and above water along with removing the carpet and installing gatorstep on the floor.

    We will be putting a video series together on this on our youtube channel, hit us up with any ideas we should tackle or questions you have!

    Default Interior Selection

    C&E Upolstery in Eagan has all the interior, here's a sample, should be sweet!

    Red will be vertical box portion

    Should be a interest in the videos. I did many of those upgrades to my 2007 SSV22. Many people still ask me why I picked 1 product vs another. For example, ballast upgrades could be ball valves vs reversible pumps OR jabsco pumps vs king pumps.

    Cost is another thing, that was usually the first question everyone asked, how much did that cost?

    Awesome. Should be plenty of content to make videos with these boats. Ballast upgrade and swim platform mods are a big ones with these older boats

    Just posted our first video, an intro walk around as well as a demo video, we removed all of the interior seats and sent them off to the upholstery shop, pulled up the carpet and center panel so we can refinish and put gatorstep down, and just overall cleaned the interior as it was filthy!

    Check it out here: https://youtu.be/BtdBGkZPRN4

    Next project is bolted thru hull fresh air exhaust and their replacement mufflers to get rid of the big ugly black box, then on to a custom ballast system!

    Nice video. Someone is going to have a nice ride when you are done.

    One question, did you think about changing the swim platform to more of a surf style without the corners? It was one of the best upgrades on my 2007 Supra. That old style really digs into the wave once you get more weight added.

    My arms are itching just thinking about all the digging around behind the speakers to get the cushions off.

    We aren't sure what we will do with the swim platform quite yet, bit will be doing something cool!

    Cool project. You do not see many of these around for a good price.

    I am really looking forward to seeing your flooring installation. I have read installing gatorstep in these boats is not a clean and easy install.

    We have a 2008 21V, so I will be following your progress closely!
