AE-21: Behind the Dash

Post by JUPITER VALERO » Mar 21, 2011 6:12 pm

Because inquiring minds want to know :!: I can't thank my buddy Tim enough (he's putting together an 18' Raptor that will be very fast) for all the help with the wiring and rigging. Here's some pictures of his artwork:

There's very little room to work below the deck. Lying on your back for hours on end with your head propped up on a pillow, twisting, turning, squeezing in and out, etc. will definitly take a toll on your body. We were both sore after finishing up the wiring!!

That looks killer. I know how much time it takes to wire a dash let alone do it that nice, way to go.
