    Default Relocate GIII switches

    I am thinking about moving the ballast switches in my '07 LSV from their original location to the panel next to arm rest. I have searched old threads and haven't found anything. The only possible problem I've thought of is that they could get bumped by a stray elbow. Otherwise it would make for a much handier location. Anybody got some helpful advice? Thanks

    Yup, I did this. Below is the thread. And your concern about a stray elbow accidentally hitting a switch is a valid one so I used a spare switch on the dash as a main power switch for the GIII switches. Once the ballast is the way I want it, I flip the dash switch to cut power to the GIII switches. Works like a charm.

    And here is the thread about adding a main power switch for the GIII switches.

    Al, that is exactly what I've got in mind. And adding a power switch is a great idea. Thanks a lot for your help.

    IMG_1217.jpg I got the ballast switches relocated today. Thanks Al for the walking me thru it. I was a bit lazier and rather than remove the panel after cutting the hole in it, I used a roto-zip bit in router to cut the hole in the fiberglass. Also, to cover the original hole I got a a push plate for a door at Lowes. It measured 3 1/2"x 15" so it's big enough to give you 2 chances to cut it and drill holes correctly (which my dumb a$$ needed). Even better, 2 of the holes are already in correct position, so you only have to measure and drill 2. Anyway, now it's time to tackle the swivel seat mod. With luck I can get that done tomorrow and be ready to hit the lake. Also Al, I like that you switched out the battery and the wake plate gauges, I gotta get that done too, just makes a ton of sense.

    Great job Scott. And good idea on the door plate. I put a cheesy plastic tray to cover the hole temporarily (and it's still there ). I keep my cell phone and wallet there so it's functional, if not attractive.

    Thanks guys. I just finished my swivel seat and was able to get a full 180 degrees of rotation so I can kick legs up on the back seat.Attachment 15449IMG_1229.jpg

    Looking sweet Scott,

    I burned out an inpeller on my new ballast pump last week, someones foot hit it. DOH!!! So im seriously considering the ballast switch mod now.

    What thread or where did you get the swivel seat mod from. I know Newty did it but i wasnt sure if you reread a thread. Other wise got a list of parts or where you got them from? I think its time i did this mod as well.
