356 / 404 Hard Top access

Postby jimcnelson » April 9th, 2014, 1:22 pm

I'd like to add a pair of speakers and some lighting to the hard top on my 356 but running wires will be tricky. I've opened all of the access ports with no luck and it looks like I'll have to drill through the radar arch where it meets the hard top to gain access. If I do that, I'll probably cover the new hole with a light fixture. Before I do that... I thought I'd ask if anyone else has found a better way.

Does anyone have experience running wires inside of the hard top?

Thanks for any help!

Hi Jim. I will assume you are referring to the aft deck hard top. Mine has lites in it and as I recall the wires came through the port side support that connects to the aft deck surround. The switch is located inside the storage locker next to the flybridge steps. I do not know how the wires are routed in between.
