Default Re: 1962 scout 80. Finally under way

For the audio sustem I wanted to start with this wet sounds bluetooth sound bar. It would be easy to mount in the space avove the windsheld in my hardop above the wipers. Its also expandable. Bose makes some flush mount speakers that will be mounted facing up behind the seats , bose 131. Marine speakers for mids and a 8 inch sub sould be more than enough sound, whats great is everthing can be interfaced for the ipad , all my nav,music topo maps etc. And will be weather proof.


Nex is making a speaker box thst sits where the bulkhead plate would be. Or modin a bulked plate for a amp and sub

Ok you're making me drool on the seats. Mine won't be here until the end of jan. The light bar plan looks good, I might borrow that idea. When using a 1 wire alt make sure you run a big fat wire (#8 or bigger) to the fuse block or load center. When running a big load the battery can be under charged by a couple of volts if there's much of a voltage drop between the alt and load.

Thanks for the love, im telln ya the seats are worth every penny.

Thanks fc. Ill bump ip the wire on the alt, it seams to be charging ok. Always 14.5. And 12.5 or so when off on the volt meter, holds charge so far. I hope u do use the staero idea. Ill draw it up here shortly I feel it should work out great, tomarrow I install my. Cargo led strip. Will be nice to have light in there.


Buld on my friends

Wel its chrismas eve spent a bout 2hours 100. Bucks and a few beers on this project. Well worth it. Led light strips with switch. And a new marine fuse block for aux lights int and ext.

Each light is 324 lumens they are perfect.

Fo ext lights I plan on getting a ridged 40inch low profile light bar and 2 rear swivle lights ,

Thanks guys, I saw a few other items that should work well too if ur looking to start a project like this. These lights re biut the size of a quarter. Led same color as the others. Ill prob install them into the housing in the center by passengers lef and on the other side, then maby wire up 2 small leds to shine down from the pocket in the hard top and have it switched as front dome seprate from the cargo, I stll ma run a switch leg to the cargo also but for. Now its ok.

I recived the tracks that thee light tape fits into, the plan is to beabale to switch theses lights from hard top to soft top and have a place for them to be stored whenthe top is down, ive added dual lock adhisve velcro tape to the back these lights are great, if it wasnt 2 degrees out ied finish the dash domes foot box,

happy new years binders
