Virage Turbo Resto

I have an 89 Virage turbo that belongs to my dad that I am trying to get some wiring information on.  It has a Yamaha V6 excel motor mounted on a superplate with the blue, red, orange, yellow striping.  I mainly need the wiring information for all the gauges and information on the best way to take care of bad sunfade.  Right now the volt meter gauge and from what I can tell the Yamaha tach/trim(digital) is not working but I think the sun may have damaged the digital readout is all.  From what I have been told about this boat it was a dealer boat that was used at cypress gardens Florida to pull their skiers. Then it was sold to a guy named Russ and then to my dad Patrick Kelly.  Right now I am working on trying to fully restore it and the trailer.  So if you know where I may get a wiring diagram it would be helpful.  Also possibly where someone can possibly pick up new seats for it.

Thank You.

Go down to the local Yamaha dealer and order a wiring diagram for the '89 excel. For sun fade damage go to the local body shop and request what their favorite buffing product are. Ask if they will sell you the pads and finish-cut products they use. We have a local custom upholstery shop do all our seats and I would suspect you have one in your area. Most of the things you requested are not found on the internet so search out the locals and have fun with your project. The results will be worth the effort.
