I can't believe it has been so long that I am forgetting how to use the site. Senior moment. I know I am leaving myself open on that one.
I finished the final installation of the steering system and console. The picture shows it as it is now in working condition and seems to be working well. I am going to rethink the area over the sterring loop though. I thought it was all worked out but as usual a little modification will need to be made. The back pannel instead of being in one piece will have to be in two pieces to give better acess to the steering system as well as the DC electrical system. Notice I have now installed the two speakers for the stero system. ( That will bring comments.)
The two cross areas just in front on the motor and a little further forward will carry the cables for the battery connections. I also installed two LED blue courtesy lights in this area.
This is the side view of motor with the steering console and electrical tray placement. I will need to make a door opening for the charging system and we are planning two cooling fans as well.
Mike informed me that working with EVA has been great and almost all the problems in the electrical hookup have been worked out. Expect to starting working in that area next weekend.
As I start actually assembling the electrical will post over on the electrical forum. I am looking for a 48V DC on/off key switch.
I found the deck hardware in bronze from Spartan Marine 800-325-3287. Great people to work with. http://www.spartanmarine.com
As always this build has and is really fun and could not be done without all of your thoughts and comments.
