On a similar vein, I did the same with my glasses a while back. Had a set of frames I absolutely loved...except for one thing, the very tips of the earpieces dug into the backs of my ears. 2 layers of shrink tube, problem solved.

2 pieces of shrink tube and done, tougher than before and no head spikes , plus the color matched.

Anyway, they garbage lid option works beautifully for keeping the weather off and the cold out, and I think it complements the look of the bike too. Thanks also for inspiring me to stop lurking.

Thinking Inside the box

...or if you prefer thinking inside the box with a turnkey solution:

3BR Powersports Panel TAPP and TAPP CAPPed GPS Charging Cable



Setup mounted on HDB Top Clamp with homemade bracket (OK a tiny bit of outside the box)



Before the HDB top clamp and a bunch of other mods & farkles



How weather resistant? How about waterproof.

ENJOY












Also: Before you guys tell me how awful it looks.... this is just the 1st one and I plan on dyeing black.
Furthermore, for you guys who are going to freak about water proofing, I can probably go back to Walmart and pick some rain pants that would cover the whole system.






What a great place to sew on some patches!
