Original install thread here: http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/3183/676565.html?1237172087

Finally finished the stereo in my boat. Carpeted the boxes, cut out a flush panel, screwed down the other one. Also added Oznium LED's in the cupholders, 5-led pods under the consoles, and a string of 70 LED pucks under the swim platform. Battery on the boat was pretty close to dead when I took these pics, so they're not quite as bright. Only 2 of 5 led's were working in the console at the time.

Beautiful dude, just awesome... I would love to see it clean, but I like the Supra decal also.

Nice job

That looks really good.

Thanks guys... Probably keep the Supra and the swoosh until I can afford a wrap. I'd probably do something real similar to the 22' Supra on the zdecals.com homepage.

WOW! Great work (read the other thread too). If it was me I'd lose the supra logo too and just go clean all around. That boat with those colors and the way they're laid out would look awesome naked.

Home run buddy, nice job. It looks really clean and effortless if you know what I mean. You should be proud of the job you did it turned out great now go out and enjoy it.

Which ozniums did you use in the cup holder?

Too much sub is never enough.... Actually, they sound awesome.

Thanks for the props guys...

Hate, those are the superflux 4-chip LED's. Very bright! You can't really look directly at them for too long. http://www.oznium.com/prewired-superflux

hey john, how does the XXX sound in the compartment? how would it sound without the 2nd under the dash? you're running off the Syn1 right? you change out your alternator?
Old    John Bauer (jonyb)      Join Date: Nov 2008       03-28-2009, 10:13 AM Reply   
Each XXX has it's own amp loaded to 1ohm mono. With 1 sub it was pretty loud. I still have the stock alternator, but just upgraded batteries.

John,

I'm curious about the LED's under the swim platoform. What are you using to hold them in place and are they water proof? Also where did you get them? a link would be great. Thanks.

John,

Nice work! I am in the process of doing the same with the LED's. I'm pretty impressed with the outcome of yours. Nice & clean looking Supra (coming from a MC guy!). Keep up the good work.

The pucks came with double-sided tape on them already. I stuck them to the platform with that so I could get them where I wanted, then got some Marine Epoxy at Lowe's and applied that all around the pucks. They're on there like cement.

The lights are waterproof. I emailed superbright about these first and they confirmed that they were the correct lights to use for underwater.

how did you power them? trough the platform brackets?
Old    John Bauer (jonyb)      Join Date: Nov 2008       03-28-2009, 12:54 PM Reply   
Yes. It actually doesn't work too well. The lights flicker. I've sanded the paint down around some of the areas that make the most contact, but I may end up doing something different.

John, that boat looks awesome and the inside lites look great. I think I need to do that.

was there any fading where the stickers were? if so did a wax and buff take them out.
Old    John Bauer (jonyb)      Join Date: Nov 2008       03-29-2009, 4:48 AM Reply   
Don't think there was any fading, but after buffing it, you can tell they were ever there.

beautiful and clean, amazing stereo and the sticker removal was a good choice. I have lights on my platform and the bracket deal doesn't work for me either. I was thinking about drilling a hole in a drain plug and running a wire through it and epoxying it up. may by a bit better.
