Grant, or anyone else that has done this: <BR> <BR>I'm wondering where you got the LED clusters for this, or, if you have anymore clusters laying around if you would want to sell them, I'm looking for at least 6 but probably 12, red... <BR> <BR>Thanks, <BR>Aaron <BR>

I used some Puck style surface LED lights from "Hella" they were like $28 each. You can do it much cheeper. Mike did some LED cup holder's in his SV211 that had only one signle LED sitcking up threw them. I have not seen them at night so I dont know how bright they are gonna be. "But I will not be out Blinged in the LED cup holder depertment by mikes single LED" LOL <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/lol.gif" border=0> Im guessing if you used the LED cluster's that wakespecialty uses your gonna have to do quite a bit of work because it would be like adding a rock to the bottom of your cup holder and now your drink is gonna have a pimp limp. Thats the reson I went the route I did it was a drop in application. <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/317239.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/317240.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/317241.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/317242.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/317243.jpg" alt="Upload">

Thats cool that you can see the lighted drink during the day too (since I do little night driving). Next the boat needs to mandate clear glass beverages!

I was thinking of the wakespecialty cupholder rings but I like the looks of Grant's better. Do the Hella pucks hook into the Spyder harness or are they wired seperatly ?

Grant, <BR> <BR> That is the coolest thing I have seen!! You have some cool pics and ideas, but this one takes the cake. <BR> <BR> I will need to get the Spyder thing now. However quoting KG.... Will these hook up to the Spyder system, or did you just wire straight from a accessory switch?

grant_west 04-14-2006 3:43 PM

You can plug anything into the spyder harness, LED that is. <BR> <BR>The syper harness is so over built that it can handle 10 times more LED light than you could throw at it. <BR> <BR>Yes you can plug these cup holder lights into a spyeder harness.

boarder_x 04-14-2006 4:08 PM

Grant, <BR> <BR> Did you use model #: HL96263? It looks like you did. Anyway, on the Hella website they are $21.81. Just wondering. I am so liking what you did.

alindquist 04-15-2006 8:05 AM
