I know that its early for this, but I wanted to start planning my budget for this.

I'm always looking to ad some bling. 06 mastercraft X1 black hull, white deck. Not sure how much can be done to x1's, but you guys are the one's to know.

there is a guy in my marina that has bought the same boat, need to upstage him a bit , ha ha!!

unfortunatly I can't get any tower inserts on the 06. The only upgrade I have at this point is the underwater lighting. I am thinking of changing my stock hard tanks to 750 bags, but I can't seem to think of any other exterior or interior things.

cup holder leds, speaker ring leds. saw a bu at the boat show earlier this year. the speaker leds changed color and intensity with the beat of the music. not my cup of tea, but still a head turner.

where are the best places to buy stuff? I would assume that MC dealers are a bit $$

Steal the idea and make it using amazon, i just put interior LEDs in the cup holder area and in bow seat area - 15$ for six 3-led heads looks awesome

I'll get night pics after the weekend, but they're sick. Not overly bright but there is a led dimmer too.
By steal I meant the idea that custom marine shops charge 100$ for led speaker rings when u can make it for 25

Did you have to put one of those resistors in line or just straight to the lights and power wires that are there originally for the cup holder light?

I didn't use a dimmer, and ya I tapped into where the stock cup light is so I didn't have to run 100 ft of wire all around and didn't have to install new switch, I would advise disconnecting the stock bulbs as they look like crap with LEDs in there. Got some 2side tape and were golden.
