    Here are the finished results, the pocketbook hurts but I am very pleased with the results.

    Looks awsome Wesley.:thumbsup: Love the red lights. How many did it take to light it up like that?

    Wesley....

    Oh yeah! Looks GREAT! Beerman brings up a good point.... How many red LED's did you go with?

    The placement of the amp is AWESOME! It never even dawned on me to put mine there.... I may be "Relocating" mine to that position!

    I like how they did the "2 battery" set-up.... Is that a Perko switch I see?

    Everyone will here you coming from a mile away!

    Congratulations on the set-up.... I know you took a pretty good "Ding" on the pocketbook, but it was so worth it!

    Look good! Be very careful when in them red light districts, the admiral/Paige may have a thing or two to say about that. (Grin)

    Looks great! Where is that amp mounted? Did you have to cut holes for the bow speakers?

    The pictures of the lights do not really look right in my opinion. I will try and take a picture this weekend of the boat with the lights on in the dark.

    The lights are actually neon tubes instead of LEDs. There are 2 20" Neon Tubes (one located on each side) in the side compartments. There are 4 9" neon tubes (two located on each side) under the glove box.


    Jeremy (bunny slippers) Note: The pictures were taken right after pulling into the garage from the shop. The dirt will be removed prior to heading to the lake this weekend. I can't believe I am saying this but I sure hope it does not rain all day Saturday.

    Under the bow seat. Yes, they had to cut the holes for the bow speakers.

    Looks real good, I like the lights to, I know that has to make the wallet lighter but should be worth it.

    Ahhh, don't worry about how much you spent, in boat dollars it was probably only $5.75... And the way the gas prices are going it probably didn't cost as much as a tank of gas will this summer!

    Again, Nice looking job on both the lights and the stereo!

    Wesley, I think it looks good. How much power is the amp and are you worried about it getting wet there?
