Seen the price of that Navpod stuff? I did look at other ready built systems but none really suited my application and again didn't have the quick release option.

Have seen some boxes made to fit on top of existing consoles but they tend to look big and ugly. Did wonder if it could all be fitted onto an instrument bar instead of enlarging what's there (never tried making a console but ok at the St/St welding malarkey)

Any ideas and pictures would be most welcome.
Would it be worth adding a little screen if you top-mount gear? Might make any additions look more 'integral' and might make the console/instrument proportions more appropriate. It would also have the added advantage of offering some protection to the instruments (and to yourself )?

Jackeens,

Yes, I am intending to just this similar to Hightowers screen behind his removable unit. We dont have much in terms of grab rails so had intended to make a intergrated screen/grab rail, this could easily extend slighlty out each side (within reason, dont want it to look too much like a hammerhead)

Just need to finalise the new dimensions and make up a template to see how it looks.

Cool. If you get a chance, post a photo of the final design?

Like the idea of a rail above a screen (stops guillotine-type worries as you're blasting along )

Mind you the last person to headbutt our console used the gps as a bumper
