That is impressive! Awesome job.

Looks like using heavy wood for such projects could become a thing of the past!

Carpet finished:








These 2 pics are of the center console fitted into place:






These last 3 pics are of it with the top door done:








I just picked up some hinges and a cabinet latch today.  Get those put on along with a little electrical work and this bad boy is ready to rock.

Great job on the console, and a question where did you find the switch box for the lights?  Thanks.

Thanks man!  I got the drink holders from the local pontoon shop.  I've seen them at walmart as well next to all the boat stuff.  If you can't find them in a store try www.overtons.com.

Here's a direct link to the cup holders:

Thanks!  I found this model at cabelas in dundee mi.  It was $69.99, a bit pricey but the front is completely waterproof and it has a cig lighter built in.  When I did my bowfishing boat 2 summers ago, I bought one at www.overtons.com for a reasonable price. 

Here is a direct link to the panels:

Very nice!

Not sure if I missed it in the thread, but do you have it attached to the tub in any way, or is it free standing?
