Finally!! The new gauges have "quick release" style plugins not the old eyelet & stud that I had, that took me a hot minute to rewire that!!

My hats off to whom ever rigged this boat 24 years ago, to notch wiring, most stuff way still labeled, only found one chaffed wire, plenty of extra to strip back & start fresh.

Here is all I have done so far. Doesn't seem like much haha

Got a trial shift / throttle mount made up. Its good & solid just might move it forward a couple inches.

Think is should be black or white???
