    Eric that is a nice clean install. I noticed the hole for the cables does not have a grommet, that would make it look complete and keep the cables from chaffing. Just a thought, all looks great. :D

    Little late for the grommet I think but I know something else will work that a lot of fishfinders have to cover the holes. A clamshell that will also help divert water away from the hole. A SS one would look nice ;)

    You could probably still get a grommet on by just sliding over the cables but the clamshell looks good also. Maybe you could use both. Just thinking of the chaffing from running while on the water and even on the trailer while being pulled to and from the lake. I have the clamshell on my boat and I'm not sure if there is a grommet under it or not. Will check it out to see, curious to know.

    I have a white power coated clam shell from UBP!! just hasn't arrived yet. I also have a body plug from the bottom of a ford truck door that I will install under the clam shell.
    Mark both covers came with my units from lowrance.

    congrats on your install. Looks good. Question for you did you run your power straight from the batteries or from under the console? Thanks I'll be doing my install once the nice weather starts.

    I ran the wires to a separate fuse panel that goes to the battery, all 3 finders, LSS2 box are the only things connected to it.
