Doesn't look like much but it's the little things...

(Airmar P79 was installed too but haven't tested it yet)

Stickers make everything look better (so says my sponsored athlete friends who put them on everything)

The last bit will be to re-do the the 12v switch panel (lower right) to match the dash & the plate around the VHF (the in-dash switches are all 24v equipment).

12v panel wired up. Had four switches/breakers; now I have eight. Left column is (top to bottom) 40A master, then VFH, GPS, Sonar (Lowrance LSS-1),and a space in case radar is ever added. Right column will be music, 12v aux plugs, then two open spots which will probably go towards lights. I'm a little disappointed that I didn't get spacing perfect but it's a $4 piece of aluminum and some paint. I can redo it if I want!

Looks OK from here...don't sweat the little stuff as long as the wiring is sound.

Cheers

So, earlier in this thread, the mess of wiring could be seen. I'm finally starting to work on it.

Now I know why people are proud of and post pictures their wiring. It's time consuming!

Hopefully, I'll have a little more time next weekend.

That looks nice. I'm already redoing mine as it don't come out as pretty as I wanted. Practice counts for a lot. Even with the best intentions I didn't get it right the first time

I totally understand. I think I'll "finish" this weekend so I can be on the water the following weekend but since I'm working around the large, stock terminal block, it's not going to be perfect - hence that small terminal block on the diagonal there. I used a piece of 1/4" starboard that I through bolted to the back of the box; that way I can just us #8 3/8" stainless screws to attach each terminal block and the bus bar.

I'm actually already planning the next redesign since I have more starboard. I'll scrap the stock one in favor of something a little smaller. I need to add a couple of terminals too so I can hook up the LED warning lights to each gauge.
