Decided to revisit the seat bench.
I thought it would be cool to do something custom, with the Fwd/Reverse shifter.
Decided to mount it in the bench, between the seats, along with a couple of cup holders, for those frothy river sodas!
We cut a slot in the top plate, for the shifter, as well as two holes for the cup holders.
Fabricated a bracket, mounted underneath, to hold the shifter.
Had to fab up a bracket, mounted to the rear of the bench, to hold the cable in place.
All in all i think it turned out, pretty slick!

Installed the fuel fills.
Had to fabricate a filler ring, because of the shape of the fills and the black bezel we are using.

The whole bracket together, is a one off piece that i fabricated, my self.
The round barrel piece, that is bolted to it, that the cable passes through, is actually a piece, fabricated by Charles Mclardie, of MRS Performance.
It is a piece that i robed from the throttle pedal set up, that was meant to hold the cable in place.

The Trailer got finished.
It turned out awesome!
The frame was powder coated Black, with violet flake.
The fenders were painted by the same Painter that did the boat.
Bad ass!

Swapped the old ragedy  trailer out to the newly restored trailer.
First look at the boat on the new trailer.
Looks Bad Ass!

Mock up and Fab  is pretty much done.
Time to break it all down and send all the parts out to chrome.

Thanks, I know you fabricated the bracket,  it's the clamp/holder I was wondering about. Seems like it wouldn't be too hard to make, just wondering if they were available somewhere.
