Well, progress has been made on Kg and my install. These should get your minds racing!

did you have the red powdercoated or painted or did it come anodized from skiers that way?

looks good so far, but how easy are the batteries going to be to get to if you need a jump? they look kind of stashed in a hard to get at spot :)

Wow, I figured this would get several replies, with it being the dead of winter and all. Regardless, here is today's round of pics!

I like how you moved the batteries. Might have to check into doing something like that in mine. I don't like having the batteries visible all the time and such. What are the LEDs for or did I miss that part. Maybe it is coming with the next round of pics. :D

KG and Dusty switched the LED's in their Roswell bars to Red to match their boats. Pretty sure thats what he is showing off. Damn Pigs never explain anything.

Alright, finally got a few minutes to add a few more daily pics. I guess I'll also explain what you have seen so far.
1. The batteries have been relocated to the hump to save floor space.
2. Roswell pic shows the bottoms of the can's dynomatted and with new 12 awg wire ran through it.
3. Obviously, custom build amp racks, with all wires secured and routed cleanly in the back, completely hidden. And SandM, I figured you would spot them right away. The large rack has built in Remote Battery terminals that have leads running the the Crank batt.
4. The Leds, Chad has it right. I removed all 15 5mm leds from the factory Roswell circuit board and wired in 5 Superflux Led's

I think that covers everything prior to this post.

Today's Pics:

saw the leads, just figured that it would be a pita to get to the batteries where they are. I pull mine out a couple of times thru the course of the year to give them a good charge and at the end of the season to store until spring. I know that you can buy a charger to do that, but I'd rather have a new board for the little bit of work it takes to pull them to charge them :)

you doing that outside? that's gotta be a little bit of a bummer :(

looks good so far.. how about a thread for each of you posting pics..

KG's Supra24
01-20-2011, 11:49 AM
Amp rack is held on with 10 or so screws and all the wires have approriate length to move the rack and set it against the exterior side wall. So yes, you have to take out 10 screws to get to the batteries but overall, not too difficult.

I won't comment on the outside as i must admit Dusty has done almost all of the work. But most of work has been done outside. Took as much in as possible, though. Dusty gets the friend of the year award for the install.

I don't have a lot of pics of mine in process. All the wiring, though, is identical. I'll try to get some good pics of the finished product and get them up.

Did you cut this out further or is this how it looks with the panels missing from the factory?

KG's Supra24
01-20-2011, 03:02 PM
From factory like that.

Man who's blue boat is that next to Dusty's? Thats the best thing in any of the pictures.

JesseC

From factory like that.

I guess when they cut things out, close counts!!! I must have measure 50 times when I cut my switch panel. Even though the cut is covered I still wanted it to be close. I did notice a few cuts like that on mine when removing the panels, but was curious since I did not know what the newer ones look like "underneath".

dusty2221
01-20-2011, 04:36 PM
Yeah, I was shocked when I got the panel off. Its a pretty hideous cut out.

When I pulled my panels I started to wonder if they let Ed loose with a roto-zip after too many yuengs & wings during his factory tour!!! I swore I saw wing sauce inside one of my panels!!

EarmarkMarine
01-20-2011, 06:05 PM
You see beavers love wing sauce and that is how they get them to chew out the panels. Just spread it on the area requiring an opening. Its an old but little known trick in the boat building business. Frankly, I was surprised when I first heard about it.

so are we establishing that ed is, in fact a beaver??

Install is looking really nice guys. Best thing about doing it yourself is when people comment on how well it sounds you can beam with a bit of pride.

I commend you on doing all that work outside as well. I was lucky enough to have the use of a shop to work on mine but the shop wasn't heated lol.

As home my garage is a bit tighter then a shop but its heated LOL.

Here's a few more:

Mess of wires after test mounting the secondary rack that holds the sub amp, acc. breaker, charger, and inverter. The current sub amp this pic shows is being swapped to another one.

What could this be used for?!?

Ground interupting switches behind all storage compartment/ski locker padding. Lights are off when closed, and the second it open, bam, LIGHTS!

How exactly are you attaching the new amp racks to the walls of the boat? Just screws straight through leaving some room for the wiring behind?

dusty2221
01-21-2011, 12:09 PM
Yeah, the secondary smaller rack is mounted directly to the walkway wall with screws. There is some squich allowance for the wires to all be ran, they have to be ran just the right way and can't be bundled at all.

KG's Supra24
01-21-2011, 02:13 PM
Last year i had amps mounted directly onto the walk thru wall (no rack). Just be very cautious in your screw size selection.

Although I would have loved to see Ed eat away at my boat after a few too many Yueng Lengs (sorry if mispelled) ...

This is more along the lines of why the panel was removed ....

experiment for ed:

fill fridge with yuenglings. get a sheet of paper and pen.
1-open fridge door and grab beer.
2-if light is on, one hash mark on paper
3-if light is off, replace bulb
4-go back to step 1

let us know how this extremely scientific experiment plays out :)

Ok, I finished up the 3 batt platform today. Here are a few pics of it, and another tease o the cupholder/speaker lights. Hoping tohave entire project wrapped up before the weekend!

Extended batter platform

Another shot. 3/4" Birch Ply, like all the racks, that are coated in rubberized paint, and 2x4 also rubberized as the support legs
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v235/dusty2221/IMG_3390.jpg

Test fitting the batts, jave to pic up the new boxes for them since they are group 27 and the old one was a 24.

Last and final preview of the Speakers/cupholders. You can see the glow behind the grills on the polks.

Instead of screwing the panel up could you put it on hinges? So just undo a latch and swing the whole panel out? I haven't looked at the space in mine just yet but didn't know.

dusty2221
02-04-2011, 04:28 PM
Possible, but for the most room, it is unscrewed and moved all the way to the side

Why a coax and hlcd??? curious at how that will sound.

Surf and Boarding i suspect. will you have seperate controls for each type?

That was just to compare the two looks side by side. Its all Krypt's in the tower.

ohhh, and guess what...the last piece came TODAY!!!

Hopefully will have a 100% complete project by this time Sunday!!!!
