    Hey, guys.
    After owning 2014 1794 for over year, and not being able to find any additional spaces for switches except for Spod, I have decided to build my own.

    Here is my parts list (I will be editing this as build progresses)

    1. 12v Marine Boat Bus. ( gives me 6 switches with fuses) $74
    2. AGT (5 Pack) 30/40 AMP Relay Harness Spdt 12V Bosch Style (40AMP-HRNS) $14
    3. 32lf of 16AWG, 6lf of 10AWG, 6lf of 12AWG wire. $15
    4. Marine grade heat shrink, butt connectors. I chose all marine type to protect from moisture. (Some may say its an overkill, but I've been doing this for years and never failed.) $10
    5. Soldering gun and Head gun, plus misc tools and clean table.


    I plan to remove the sunglasses lid/pocket and install switches in its place. I do have to trim the Bus switch plate little bit along the top and bottom, but surprisingly side wise it fits perfect.

    So far I plan on using only 2-3 of 6 available switches.: 40" light bar, GPS On/Off, and hood Raptor mod.

    Couple hours of work got me this far today.20151213_185107.jpg 20151213_185116.jpg 20151213_185140.jpg 20151213_195155.jpg 20151213_200415.jpg 20151213_200448.jpg 20151213_202415.jpg 20151213_202556.jpg

    Looking good. Very pro. I think you should go with the "Bilge Pump", "Anchor Light " "Depth Sounder", "Fresh Water", "Kontmeter", and "Bait Pump" stickers just to make it interesting. heh heh...:oldglory:

    It's a model. I didn't catch it at first though something didn't look quite right.

    You could go all James Bond and label them;

    • Oil Slick
    • Smoke Screen
    • Left/Right Front Wing Machine Guns
    • Rear Bullet Proof Screen
    • Tire Slashers
    • Ejector Seat

    That's how I roll.
