Moved the battery to the rear and made this mount for the PCM and realys for the fans and lights.

Below you can see the donor harness and the C1 connector from the factory Envoy fuse block becoming one. Utilized the factory fuse block and all the fuses are still labeled for the correct items. The donor harness was a 05 Chevy Silverado 2500.

Below is the homemade bezel for around the CB that is installed in the headliner. Made it from foam weather-stripping and fiberglass.

All the dash lights where burnt out, so changed them over to LEDs. Got them from Ebay with the resistors already on them. Little bit of soldering and some time, they look nice. Cheap little mod as well.

Below is the custom switch panel made to control the front and rear LEDS. The rears are activated by two relays. That way when I put the selector gear selector in reverse they come on as my reverse lights, or via the toggle switch. The 3rd switch is for the onboard air compressor. Don't have any pics at the moment of that. CB Mount Bezel.jpg CB.jpg Gauge LEDS.jpg Switch Plate.jpg

No worries about pics while working. I'm guilty of that too.

Two builds at the same time. I guess you like this platform!
