Default Winter project: Dual battery setup, amp rack, battery monitor

Just sharing pics of my latest project (we have to do something in Michigan to pass the time in the winter). I fabricated this to go over top of the two batteries relocated just a bit forward of the factory location. Includes new dual battery selector switch, fuse block for expansion, led light controller, and amp mounted to the top. Will include pics of the final install when weather permits!

    Looks great! I purchased some of those Mariah stickers years ago and still have never put them on anything! Thanks for reminding me I have them!

    Thanks Roy, Bdbwtie. Motoxxx43 believe it or not I forgot I ordered the decal as well until after I built the enclosure, mounted the amp and battery switch. Happened to find it while digging through all the boat stuff looking for something else. I must be living right because of the way it fit perfectly! Now it's your turn to build something to put your decal on! [emoji6]
