Had the carb worked on today. Installed j-tubes, had the vacuum ports lead filled then I installed a new throttle bracket, new gas pedal, and replaced the fuel line from pump to carb with AN braided line, and a new pressure gauge.

finished my control box.  all fused and relayed so i can run small gauge wire around the boat and leave the big stuff back next to the motor where it belongs.  the LED's light up and when pressed down are a manual override of the circuit.  now time to hook up the dashboard to it and all my goodies. 



thinking about making a few of these and using sealed/weatherproof connectors and harnesses.

Flooring had some wood rot, with some nasty moldy insulating stuff under it. We ripped all that out to prep the floor to redo.
