97 Maxum 3000 scr, Shower sump pump install, New Carpet, Vynil Wood floors and Sound
Hello, everyone. This is my 1st season with my 97 Maxum 3000 scr. Ive been following the forums gathering great tips. I decided to rip out all of the carpet from the cabin and add vynil wood floors and new carpeting where needed. The carpet was glue down and it wasnt to bad getting it up with the oscillating floor scraper. Just make sure you have freash blades, because of the glue. For the vynil floor I glued down the edges and used a jig saw to make the cuts. At first I was going to leave the bilge compartment covered. I decided against it, because it would of been to envolved to turn the seacock on and off. I still have to seal the edge of the access foor to make it seamless. I also had to install a new mid bilge and I took out the shower pump. The shower pump was removed because it didnt work and I added a shower sump pump that I got from amazon. It was pretty tight trying to get the sump pump in and mounted. With a little effort and some L-brackets we got it mounted. So it is resting on the L-brackets and not on any of the hoses. Lets just say it works great. Now the water automatically pumps out with no need to press the pump button in the shower. We also replaced the sound system. 2 Clarion amplifiers, 4 boss speakers in the radar arch using custom speaker rings wrapped in vynil. I also added a subwoofer beside the cabin door. Of course all of the lights were upgraded to led. Here are some photos of the process. Hope this helps someone.
Thanks for the progressive photos on the flooring. Replacing our carpet is the next/last big project we are thinking about and these help a lot!
Great, I saw in previous threads people where using floor scrappers or putty knives. I decided to use a oscillating tool with the scrapper attachment. You are going to need a few of the scrapper attachments because the glue from the floor decreases it effectiveness after long use. It went pretty quick. The oscillating tool is not expensive at harbor freight.
