    Hi Issa,

    I am curious about the new switches you replaced the old ones with.

    What switches did you replace the old ones with and where did you get them?

    Also, what did you do with respect to the fuses?

    Do the switches have built in circuit breakers?

    Looks like you replaced the switch panel what material did you use and did you make the panel up yourself?

    ​​​​​​​she certainly looks great, nice job

      Thanks! It’s been a lot of work but I’m almost done.

      As far as your questions, I ordered everything through New Wire Marine. I used their switch panel builder, there are tons of options. Just select the size and it will only let you fill in what will fit. I wanted to keep the switches where they are so I went with the rocker switches and mounted a fuse block in the electrical compartment. Rockers with breakers above will not fit that footprint. There were plenty of directions I could’ve gone but being budget isn’t unlimited I went with the cleanest, most practical and affordable option. Feel free to message me if you have any other questions.

    Very pleased with how the kiwi grip turned out. And extremely easy to apply. Curious to see how well it holds up.
