..great job..it's looking real good...running the 350 I  never encountered a heat problem....I suppose having a solid belly pan might give you a little extra bobbing time if you were to end up in open water...as opposed to the mesh bottom...

   Pretty clean looking unit you have there. I like the way you plumed the wiring. What brand gauges did you use in the dash ??

Very nice and clean unit, i like the idea of the air ride seat and the wood floor :o. i would have to say the wood floor will make the machine less noisey inside and less vibration. the only thing i dont see in these pictures are the gas tanks, where do you plan on putting the tanks???

fuel tank is behind gas pedal in the front   custom made  and you fuel through the fender,I used a boat filler  cap that threads on.

The gauges are Faria gauges sourced from a marina.

My guages are Faria also.  I'm thinkin they'll still work when it drops through the lake ice. :)

   I looked up those gauges & I like the Kronos 6 gauge set. Looks like a good price. Were the sending units included with your gauges ?? Are they mechanical or electric ??
