Wow this should be a cool one to see all done. Man those towers sure do have a lot of pieces, gives you an idea as to why they had problems with them shaking.

That is siiick. The black tower, especially the bit of silver in the board racks and in the supports, really sets it off. One final touch that would make it perfect would be be to powdercoat the windshield frame black

thanks guys,

were gonna do the windshield this winter. this was the mad dash to get is going before summer. stereo was pretty plain just a 13w7 in a box. i took a lot of time over 150 pieces in the tower... wrap is getting designed by my tattoo artist as we speak....

just fyi powder was about $2000.00 including all the time to disassemble and reassemble!!!!

thanks again guys,

Mario, thats work!!!!!!!

big d, just the tint. but when we do the windshield frame were gonna do all the rest of the stuff in the boat. guages, cleats, grab rails. its gonna be murdered out.
also a full wrap all the way over the topdeck under the upholstry.....

WOW that looks really great. Whats the ballpark cost of powder coating a tower. I know it must be lots or man hours just taking down and putting up, plus keeping track of everythign. Nicely done. Very classy

Wow that is one of the best looking towers I have ever seen. Really sets the boat off and makes it look amazing.
