My son-in-law is in the process of upgrading the stereo/DVD player right now! There are few more ideas on the drawing board as well. I'll post those changes as they occur.

Great Mods!!

No matter what the brand or the model.......adding your own special touches is always fun and rewarding.

Hi garysxterra,

Some really neat looking additions and changes to make it your own.

Only thing I see is,,, I hope those are 6volt batteries...cause if they are 12v each,,, you got 24 v the way they are wired.

These are some terrific modifications. My wife and I just took our 181 out on its maiden voyage this past weekend and wrote down all kinds of things that are pictured here. Great ideas and I hope to use some of them and perhaps come up with some more. Thanks for sharing your ideas.
