I was re-powder coating my window frame because the paint was looking crappy and after I took my winodw off my Air vents looked like they need'ed some love. They looked easy to make so I made up some Carbon Fiber ones and droped in some Wake Specialitys LED's in the Vent box.

Of course you did, just some routine maintenance while the boat was apart.

Like everything else you cats do, looks good.

All the old lighting is comming out. I used to have Cold Cathode light's each cold cathode light uses 0.47 amp's That's 5 times the draw of the a brighther set of LED's. It all add's Up I have like 10 cold cathode lights in my boat. The LED's that I was compairing it to were the Underplatform light's they are super bright and they only dray 0.11 amp's So all the cold cathode stuff is comming out and Im gonna replace it with all Wake Specialty's LED's

Looks pretty lame...as usual. I mean, a good thought, just poor execution. Your work is just way to sloppy for me.

yeah Grant should move to Florida so he can make all our boats down here bling bling!

Everything Grant does inspires me and probably others to make improvements and make our boats more Bling Bling! I always like seeing what new stuff he thinks of.

Man! The "King of Bling" has outdone himself again! Nice work!

I wish I had the opportunity to take my boat out in the nightime. I would love to light it up with some of your ideas. We have to be off the lake before dark. Guess I need to travel more to other places.

Nice work Grant!

Damn Grant is there anything you can't pimp out. I can't say amazing anymore you have made it a minimum expectation now. Killer work.

Thank's for all the complement's. This was IMO a easy project. Im deffinatley not the first one to do it. Im working on some other cool lighting project's right now. I cant wait till they are finished. I havent seen what Im doing now done to another boat so Im pretty excited about it. It should be a pretty cool effect. Im trying to balance all the light out. Ya see if you end up throwing a bunch of light's in they all blend together and you miss the effect. I like the contrast between dark and light. When you have so many lights they all seem to blend into each other. The photo's I have been taking dont give the effect of how much light there really is. My small garage with painted walls helps reflect the light coming out of the boat so Its not a true test of how it will appear out on the water but trust me there is plenty of light. It looks so cool. I cant wait till all the lights are in and I get to see it out on the water. Big Up's to Kris at Wake Speciatley's. The SMT light's and other trick led's he has have made these lighting projects possable. With the cold cathode light's I used to use you wouldnt be able to do what Im about to do plus the color is a diffrent color of red it more of a true red then (pink). Its much easy'r on the eye's
