    Default My Carrera Eclipse upgrades

    So I started a thread a while back showing all the work I have done to my boat as I was doing it but the pictures were being hosted on a company server which has since been password protected. I wanted to share some pictures of what the boat started like and some of the few things I have done to make it my own.

    The seats were a little dated so I decided to make my own because my mom does upholstery and I figured this would be a good way to update the boat a bit

    I didnt want to buy a GPS speedo for a million dollars so I made a mount for my Garmin Nuvi and fabbed up a little acrylic cover and used velcro to secure it without having to drill into my dash.

    How could you forget the upgrades like the custom bud light exhaust, and the electrical tape drive assist we installed on the water?!?
