I'm in the process of my reconditioning my Montauk. The rust colored fibreglass legs supporting the helm seat is chalked and dull. Would like to keep the classic color. Is there a specific product you can recommend to clean it. Or, a paint that could be used-brand and color?
Seat is in tough shape. Where can I get a new one? Est cost? Thanks.

Here is a link to a thread in the Marketplace section in which Tom Clark is organizing the manufacture and purchase of a bunch of *new* RPS legs for about $165.00 per pair. Seats are available, but maybe someone else can field that one...

I have heard from previous threads here, I believe from LHG, that the RPS leg surfaces can be reconditioned with a product called Penetrol, but haven't tried it yet on mine.

It was my idea to use the Penetrol. It has been reported that this works fairly well:

Seat? Try www.hallsnautical.com . For a 1985 Montauk I think you want the Parchment color with Brown piping. The new seats come with T-Nuts already installed so installation is a snap.

Taylor is right. Hall's makes a great RPS seat cushion and it costs $220 plus shipping. See:

I did the penetrol on mine and they look like new, great for gas tank mats as well. Follow Taylors post to Hall's for a price, tell here you read it here....about $200. Penetrol is available anywhere about $12.
