As you can tell the interior is plain, I've been chasing functional mods first. So I gave the Admiral a tour. She loves it! "You can read by this!" she said...she had earlier teased me about the output..."It's going to be like an oven light!" she had sniggered.

"So thaaaat's what youv'e been building!", "Yes" sez I, "And on a 700mA total draw *said with tented fingers*, and the red light will let us view the stars together!" ;-D

Boasting aside, it is genuinely a nicer space now, for about $150 in materials cost. I would like to add other kinds of lights, and this worked all right as a start. Tips: Stiff and/or flat wire makes all the differences in fishing the lighting wire. It was a pain, but not too bad to get everything run. Also the dimmer functionality is a big deal, the lights are bright enough that you will sometimes want to back them down a bit.

Regards to all

    I placed it over the hole closed by the plate hiding the winch bolts. The main problem here was to route the wiring to the panel. Just now there is no separat switch besides that at the light itself. Published by: MS Classifieds
