DJ dizzyj, I've been waiting for one of these threads to pop up in here so I could add my .02..
Ok, while the things you mentioned are kinda cool... Lets face it it's not really going to send shockwaves through the people looking at your boat. A guy like me that isn't familiar with wakeboats probably wouldn't even notice.
So let the bling begin..
Impy's Hotrod wheels.. http://shopping.rexmar.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=CTGY&Category_Code=impywheels
Incidentally my personal favorite as well as the one I just recently put on my girls boat... "The Daytona" http://shopping.rexmar.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=CTGY&Category_Code=impydaytona 13
If you don't find something you like out of those we can step away from the marine suppliers a bit, and go over to this website... "Billet Specialties"
Your going to find everything from billet pullies for your motor, to steering wheels, etc... over here.
It should be noted that these steering wheels are what are known as 1/2 wraps.. leather on one side, billet on the other. (can get hot on a sunny day) The ones above from Rex are full wraps.. http://www.billetspecialties.com/subcategory.asp?cid=12
Behind the billet steering wheel there's going to be a little adapter hub.. You can vary the length of that hub (2 - 4 - 6 inches), as well as the bolt pattern to match the wheel. Those hubs can be found here : (I think you'd probably go with the 2 on a wakeboat) http://www.rexmar.com/page94.html
Also offer Hubs if you go with a different wheel.. something like an automotive "Momo" etc.. http://www.rexmar.com/page93.html
Ok, now you got your wheel covered.. How about doing something that hasn't been done before? An Offshore throttle setup in a wakeboat?
Dana Marine just came out with these billet shifter throttle combo's. They are a gunnel mount and the bling factor is off the hook. The short shifter is your gears, the long one is the throttle. After you get used to this setup, you'll never want to go back to a single lever again. I'm about 95% sure These will work with your existing cables, so it's literally unbolt yours, and put this one in. http://www.danamarineproducts.com/ProductDetails.cfm?group_id=33&catid=576&productid =4691&CFID=313407&CFTOKEN=66428466
The two switches in the throttle handle are usually used as Trim switches on an I/O. You can hook them to your hydraulic wake plate and be able to adjust on the fly without removing your hands from the wheel or throttle.. Or if you don't want to do that, you can just ask Dana to sell you one without the switches in it.
How you set for stereo? Speaker covers?
These are cost effective and work exceptionally well. My friend Stu makes them actually. Probably the best prices your gonna find for billet speaker covers.. I'll throw up some others though in case you don't like the designs.
Can't get the stupid link to work so just copy and paste this into your browser:
Ron's Billet also sells Grills http://www.ronscustomdetail.com/
Not sure what kind of remote your running for your stereo, but there's a variety of billet bezels available for them. http://www.danamarineproducts.com/GroupCatProducts.cfm?CatId=236&group_id=2&page=1&C FID=313408&CFTOKEN=12448762 http://www.ronscustomdetail.com/shop_bezels.html
Now lets get into somethings that you probably haven't seen before.. Hose down systems aren't anything new in boats, deckboats have had them for years, and from what I understand some wakeboats even have a hose down with hot or cold water, but there's a twist on them now!!
Lets say you run your boat up to the beach and party it up for awhile.. hose down system is in the back of the boat.. Most everyone gets in the front of the boat with sand on their feet. Not a problem anymore!! Run a water line up to the front and install one of these little billet showers.. their tiny and spray little streams of water to wash peoples feet off before you get in the boat!! http://www.danamarineproducts.com/GroupCatProducts.cfm?CatId=534&group_id=2&page=1&C FID=313407&CFTOKEN=66428466
I'm not sure what pump you guys are running for hydraulic wake plates, but if I had to guess it's probably the standard merc pump damn near everyone in the marine world uses for everything.. If that's the case (click the single one) http://www.danamarineproducts.com/GroupCatProducts.cfm?CatId=507&group_id=2&page=1&C FID=313407&CFTOKEN=66428466
Some of the standard stuff, random billet bezels for Nav Lights, Battery switches, Perko stern lights etc.. http://www.danamarineproducts.com/GroupCatProducts.cfm?CatId=2&group_id=2&page=1&CFI D=313408&CFTOKEN=12448762
Now if ya just got money to burn... How about some billet "fender" holders? Hold your bouies in style in the rear storage areas. http://www.danamarineproducts.com/GroupCatProducts.cfm?CatId=552&group_id=2&page=1&C FID=313408&CFTOKEN=12448762
This is all stuff you can buy off the shelf and throw on your boat. I'm about 90% possitive you'd be "custom" with regards to I haven't seen any of this stuff on other wakeboats. I have seen all of it on a variety of performance boats.
If you want to get really "custom" and start making some of your own parts.. Like say a custom wake plate, different shape? size? Definately do-able..
I don't want to overload you guys so I think I'll stop there for now.
