I was in Mikes boat this weekend and noticed his new LCD voltage meter counter sunk into his dash. He said they make them that read Volt's Amp's and Heat. I want to keep a eye on my new alternator and thought these would do the trick. They are thin enough to install into a handle that I wanted to make for the engine cover.Ill throw in some LED just to make everyone happy

From the pics, it appears the new handle is longer than the old handle. If that is the case, how are you going to handle how it won't match up with the holes that are already in the vinyl?

yet another great idea. on the readouts, http://www.digikey.com has tons of that kind of stuff too.

vinyl is pretty easy to patch, especially in a small area, but you could use a backing plate too. i'm sure Grant has some carbon fiber or polished thing up his sleeve.

Grant, If Sound Illusions ever ends up not panning out for you, I'm sure that you could easily find a job with a boat manufacturer in R&D. I know that Rick Tinker reads the boards often. If he were smart he'd be sending you an offer

As usual, great work!

Grant,
Do you guys sell the Carbon handles that I have seen you make. I am not looking for LED's in them but just the carbon handles. Do I need to send in the ones currently in my boat? It is a 2004 Moomba XLV. it has 4 plastic handles.

Also the cost for all 4.

Thanks

As good as Grant is at bringing Da Bling, he sure needs to learn to SPELL... (just messing with ya Grant!)

I'm curious when we are going to see the electric air conditioned cup holders? I'm going to need 2 please...

You ought to look into onboard keg-erator W/Co2 Tap.
I'd buy 2.
Good ballast! Well.. until the end of the weekend.
