Rev10 LED Rings with Opaque Grills
 
I finally installed my Rev10 LED rings with the opaque grills. Running wires through the Alpha Z tower is no joke. Maybe I had too many beers at that point or maybe it was because I didn't start until around 11:30pm but it took be about 4 hours to do it, start to finish.

I snapped a couple quick pics last night after pulling the boat up. I tied them to the factory interior LED courtesy lights. I think I'm gonna rewire them and maybe find some sort of wireless controller to turn them on and off from the house. Kinda ghey I know but it sounds like a cool idea.

I'll try and take some better pics tonight from the back of the boat. I haven't put the overlays on them yet. I'm thinking about painting the overlays white or silver. Thoughts?

They are so bright and white that it makes the factory LED's look yellow.

Got my rings and grills installed on my rev 410's yesterday as well.I would try the overlays and see how you like them before you paint.I think the stainless gives a nice contrast

Nope. They say 'Opaque' on the box. It's an accurate description. It's a strange material as it doesn't appear to just be a piece of frosted plex and it certainly is not clear plex with frosted or sanded edges.

o·paque (-pk)
adj.
1.
a. Impenetrable by light; neither transparent nor translucent.
b. Not reflecting light; having no luster: an opaque finish.

Seems like a misnomer to me but I've been wrong before :)

I finally got around to painting and installing the overlays on my grills. I had started brushing them and was going to spray them with a flat clear once I got them how I wanted them but I got lazy and ended up just painting them gloss white.

I think they came out good; subtle and clean looking. I may still get another set and brush them though.

Ha! Well now I get the opaque grills part ;)

It does look very classy and clean. Great job on your entire system.

No way is that gay!! It's the only way to do any type of LEDs... If you don't have a RF remote, your behind the times ;)
LOOKS NICE BTW!!
