So I just removed my canvas from my T-Top frame to install a new cover ( white on top/ sky blue bottom) and wanted to run my wiring for my spreader lights. I noted two plastic plugs in the top of the framing that Yamaha drilled to run the wiring for the anchor light. Question is does anyone know if the tubing is open at the front where the two sections are welded together ? Was hoping someone else has already done this before I drill a test hole :)

Port side frame wiring Holes from factory is what i used to wire my spreader lights. I also mimicked the starboard side to run coax for my marine radio. I can send some pics if it ever stops raining here. Also, a small washer attached to a string and a vacuum cleaner will be your friend with that install.

My T-Top speaker wires are just running outside of the tubing for now but I did have plans to route them internally. I was worried that I would start drilling holes and not be able to pull the heavy gauge speaker wire through so I've left it so far.

The vacuum and washer trick is brilliant.

Ok bad news. The framing tubes do not have pre-drilled wiring holes inside. As you can see by the photo I drilled right above the down tube frame. By doing that I was able to drill into the connecting tube to run the wiring so that it exits at the same location as the wiring for the anchor light. As of right now. Thinking I will run the wiring from the spreader light on the backside of the front tube to that entry point.

Finished up this morning with the spreader light install. Was not able to run the wire internally on the front tube without drilling completely through the front tube so I ended up running it on the outside. Zip ties maybe temporary until I come up with something different to attach the wires to the frame . New canvas top as you can see has not be strung up as of yet. Was waiting to finish the spreadlight.

So the grommet's I was able to pick up at the local hardware store. The large hole in.the top fram is 1/2 and the smaller hole through the side was 1/4. Also purchased a roll of that mesh wire protector off Amazon and have that installed over the wiring where it passes through holes internally. As for the white wire I took a white cable tv wire and pulled everything out to simply use the cover to go over the black and red wires. Hope that makes sense. Also used some white wire shrink to seal up.the ends.

I like your TTop cover. You picked a great color combination. I am guessing it was custom made. Any links to the maker?

Totally makes sense! Very crafty!

Thanks!

Just an FYI there is just enough room to squeeze in another wire through the already existing holes Yamaha uses to run the anchor light wiring through the mid section of the T-top frame
