|The orignal thread got archived |
I have been busy doing a bunch of projects it seems as if you are not doing 20 things at once your not getting anything done LOL. Ill post the installed picks this weekend
|G - your the MASTER !!!!|
|PIMP!! Looks awesome Grant.|
|"Have I ever told you your my hero....." It's about time for an all out thread covering all the badass projects that your done to it with a nice pictorial.|
|Siiiccckkk!!! Make some for me!! I'll buy em!|
|Oh, and nice super CLEAN Air Nautique. What all have you done?? You have a website with pics and mods?|
|what are you using as your grill "cloth"?|
|Thanks for the complements |
Chris:I used to have a web sight with pictures of all the projects I started on the boat. When it crashed and I lost all my pictures I sorta stopped keeping pictures of projects and just post them up here.
I need to go back and take a bunch of picture of all the stuff I have done over the years like a photo album.
Sam: Its Aluminum. Its anodized. I bought it from a company on line in LA and had it shipped up here to SF. It came in a 4 X 8 sheet. Check with a local metal shop they sometimes have this material. I have found that cloth works ok with sub's but if you use cloth on the mids and highs you notice a diff in volume.
|G, could you explain the process of cutting the hole in the glass? Did you just use a sawzall to cut that hole? Did you use any other tools? Thanks|
|So nice man|
|G, How does it sound? Is there a big difference between before and after? I'm thinking of doing something similar, and wondering if its worth it. |

|its hard to say. I vented the bottom of the passenger seat a few years ago. I can tell you that there was a big differance. With this project there was a month or so between the last time I played the stereo and the time I did this vent. It was hard to tell if the bass was louder because it had been so long from the time I had last heard the system. The Grill on the drivers side is fake. There is no vent there. Its just a grill to match the passenger side.|
|What did you use to cut the hole?|
|Adam: The answer to your question is in the 10th picture in this thread. If you don't have one and your NOT a Caveman a sawzall will work fine. You can use it to cut the straight sections and then use a dremmel to round the corners. You don't have to make a perfect cut out. The grill will cover your cut section. If you can't cut a semi straight line then you shouldn't be using cutting tools on your nice boat. Find a friend that can cut straight and have him help you. The blue tape with a nice line marking your cutting aera makes a good guide. |
"A g money tip"
A friend holding a shop vac pointed at your cutting tool removing fiberglass dust as you cut or sand will keep your boat clean as you work and you itch free.
|Thanks G, I think I'm ready to cut now!|
|You guys should see Grants boat in person. Soo clean. He's definitely a perfectionist and doesn't shy away from too many projects. |
Good stuff, Grant.
