DONE with carpet installation!!!!!!
I pretty much finished up the carpet today. Trim is back on, lids are all done and installed. Only need to do a few tweeks to some lids as they did not seem to go back on quite like they came off. I am not sure why that is but it looked like the hinges are reversible and all the same????
While I was in there I also replace all the shocks for the lids, replaced a bunch of switch covers, replaced front bezel, and also did the ChampioN stickers on the sides of the boat. I will do lower end grease if I can figure that out for a faststrike and change the impeller also. Have the parts just need to do it.
Old Front Bezel and Switches
New Front Bezel and Switches
Old Driver switches with rogue switch - previous owner installed for graph power
New Driver switches - Rouge switch gone. anyone know how to put power to the little light inside the switch when it is turned on??? Jumpr from another switch with light power?
I also replaced the ignition key switch as the kill switch portion was not working. I think I might have switched a couple of wires. Anyone know what color the center wire is supposed to be? There were to purple, one witwh a red stripe and one with a white stripe. I took pictures before I pulled the wires but it was so out of focus that I can't really tell which wire when where?
Sorry for being so long but I am stoked to have this part done. I am on the back porch having a Miller. Really, it is miller time.
I could not have done this without all the help from you guys on the board. Iam a new member and glad I found this place to call cyber home. What a great place with great people. Thanks Guys!!!!!

Damn man that looks great! My Ranger needs a little lipstick work....
As far as your new rocker switch, you probably need a ground jumper from another switch to complete the circuit to power the light. The "hot" wire is already present at the switch."Shit is not like it once was"- AggieGreg
