In need of some advice please...I've been contemplating having the window frame chromed, noticed the chrome on a few new Calabrias,just throwing around the idea what do you guys think? Also curious, do you think it would look good with light tinting or are the colors too neutral? Pics... New to WW btw and love the spread of info

Are you that bored? I would get the tower powerder coated black before I'd do that, pump that money into a system instead, possibly some tower speakers.

Not bored at all, just attentive to detail...and the full stereo system through out is already on schedule

I think it would look good with a black powercoat tower instead of the chromed windshield, less expensive too. Maybe charcoal like your boat, I like charcoal.

Welcome brah!

I think when you get the racks, speakers, etc...put on, it will look sweet! Stainless steel racks, speakers, etc. would match your letters and balance out the look. I'm not sure how much the stainless steel windshield package would run, but couldn't hurt to ask? Then you'll know if it's worth it for you.

You might even ask about the chrome CF numbers? They hooked me up, and it looks nice!

It looks great the way it is, so just do what YOU know you will like! You're the one paying for it, and ridin' it everyday!

Good luck.

Tint the windows. Then the frame will blend in.

On a side note. The "chrome" windshields are actually stainless. If you still wanted stainless I would see what the factory could do for you, in replacing the black for stainless.

Just talk to your dealer (is it Larson of Stockton?) I believe they can order them......or at least tell you how! I'm going out Wednesday, and I'll snap a shot or two!

Enjoy!

I tried getting my windshield tinted but the shop
said they couldn't do it because it was a 1 piece window and can't get around that curve w/o
a seam...any suggestions

Shawn H., i can see that you have an 06 and i noticed that the new ones have the full one piece window on each side...Mine is actually a 2007 but has the old dash and old style window so my window is actually 5 seperate pieces including the walkthrough window so my windshield is taken apart pretty easily...i was planning on buying a roll of film and tinting each piece seperately...yours might be a little tough because its a huge piece, you can buy a big enough roll of film (36''tall by X feet long) and do it yourself if its worth the risk to you

Go to a different tint shop. They don't know what they are talking about, or they don't know how to do a boat.

Drew, just a question, you said that yours is an 07? Everything looks like an 05 Calabria however.

I think that the gray looks cool. I would just powder coat the tower in grey.

March, its actually a Calabria VTS which is the same as the Pro V without the Pure-Vert (which unfortunately is one of their best selling points) so it came without any ballast...i've been exploring different designs to plumb about 1500 lbs....i've noticed that a lot of Calabria boats have some old designs on the new boats such as dash and little cosmetic things..anyways yes it pretty much has all 05 design but it came out of production in early 06...got a really good deal Larson does at the end of every year, and the uniqueness of colors stuck on me quick

Here ya go Drew.......nothing that special, but it does look nice when it matches the letters on the side....

A delicate touch of accent, with an ever so slight contrast of style......

Drew,

I really like your boat. Not because I sold it to you, either. LOL.

Calabria has a stainless steel cap that can go over your existing railing. I do not know the cost, but if you call me on Tuesday I will get you a price.

Also, I know a tint shop that will do your windows. I even know one in Lodi that can do the one peice windshield if anybody is interested.

Chris
