I was actually talking to my buddy with a wolverine and it sounds like they have a better set up. Hondas $55 sub harness piggy backs the cig lighter, for the relay trigger. Well so does the inferno heater, I didn't like the dual piggyback setup. So I just spliced into the heater piggyback harness for my relay trigger. Worked out.

After a decent drive in snow, mud and puddles, the other day, the next priority is sealing some gaps up. There is a lot of holes in the firewall where the steering wheel and peddles go through. I picked up a roll of 6" wide 1/8" neoprene rubber to make some fill pieces. I also plan to cut some 2" wide strips to help cover the 1" gaps in the doors.

Another issue was water splashing up through the drain holes in the floor i got some "work out pad" rubber from home depot to make floor mats out of. It's very grippy, reminds me of horse stall mats, but 1/4" thick.

Got the switch plate in and installed

XTC Power Products Center Console Switch Plate for Honda Talon 1000 SP-6SW-HT https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07TLHC3GS..._eWLhEbKBF377J



After running cable from the rear for the winch and dual battery, I found that Honda had already done that. They even ended right by my battery isolator



The front winch has an in cab switch already and I was thinking about how I could have that same switch run front or rear with a selector switch.

I'd like to have the sector switch be a 3 way with off in the middle also. Right now the switch is live with the key, which I'm not to fond of, since I have young kids that like to switch switches and press buttons. I did a momentary switch for the seltor switch also. That way there is a little safety built in.

This is how I did the wiring for the selector:

In | out (front)
In | out (to switch)
In | out (rear)

Control switch:

In (from selector)
Power
Out (from selector)

I know I could just add another switch and it'd be the same thing, but like I said, I'd like to add the little safer feature in of having an all off position.



This will be front winch in



Rear winch in



I'm sure you can imagine how out works.

I also added a good old fashioned plug for the rear



I also worked on sealing some of the air gaps in the firewall with some foam in the cowel space. As well as added the rear vents and ducting for the heater.

Well I made the floor mats today. Pretty straight forward, took rough measurements, made cardboard mockups, trimmed to fit, then traced onto the rubber. I guess it was actually work out equipment mat.



Came out pretty good, the stuff was pretty easy to work with. I just used some heavy duty scissors. The backs looked easy at first, but they were more parallelogram than square.

looks awesome man! thanks for the shout out and business!

regarding in cab noise - I can't stand how SxS's sound and how loud they are. I bought the Rugged Radios noise canceling headsets. They are one of my top 3 purchases, by far! Listen to music, talk to your passengers/other wheelin buddies and no annoying SxS noise.

Some guys complain they like to "hear the motor" and "know if somethings breaking" fawk that! drive it like you stole it and let the problem develop!
