Anyone know how to get photobucket ro work off of a phone? I have pics to post but my phone won't work with me. I spent all day finishing up my fuse box. Well that was um exciting. ..lol it looks great now I must build so I can get things moving. This is my favorite part of things. Its all up to my imagination and bank account to see what I can do.

I have a galaxy s3. Yeah I tried to copy the link but It wouldn't work. I'm either going to modify my current seats or build all new. Most likely all new. I have an idea in mind so ill see if I can pull it off. My dash is driving me crazy ... lol all the test fitting and moving and refitting oh well in the end it will be worth it. I'm using a wood base with fiberglass coating. It will save weight and time. I love birch wood. Balsa is lighter but I need something a bit more solid to attach my steering to. So I didn't make as much progress as I wanted to due to my fuse box build.

so there is my newly rewired fuse box. Soon I should have it mounted to the boat and be able to lay out my wires. I have a total of 9 relays wired and I have assorted fused power lines as well. total of about 8 i believe. What a total PIA but well worth it i think. Next wiring will be my dash and my dual relay for the hatch lift. that one however I will be placing in the engine bay. that way my power and ground lines are shorter, no point running extra lines up front if I don't need to.

fuse box all finished up and ready to be installed. work on my dash continues, slowly but it is coming together finally. I wish I had just used fiberglass as my main component but I wanted the added strength of the wood. I know it will look great once its done and it will be well worth the effort. I hope to make good progress over the next couple days.

You can see the basic shape that I'm going with. I plan on glassing over every thing once its finalized. Curving wood is a pain but the end result with fiberglass on it is super strong. Just wish I had more than a couple hours each day to work on it. Seems like once you get on a roll its time for work.

As you can see I'm finally ready to lay some glass. I'm still wondering If I shouldn't have just glassed it all to start with but kind of late now... lol. I hate 2nd shift just when I get on a roll ita time to call it a day. Tomorrow I should have my first layer of glass down. More pics to come... lets face it its just getting good now lol

Well as you can see I finally go some glass down. The felt is really thick and what look like wrinkles are actually the fabric just laying in a different direction. I need to build it up from the back side still. But I'm just happy to see real progress. Yet again I get rolling and its time to wrap it up and go to work.
