Robts $30k plus car audio install project
Well....for those of you who saw my stereo or truck at a few events probably would think....omg...well like always....IM NOT HAPPY
With a help of a good friend, we are going to build a stereo that is SEMA quality. He is one of the top installers of the country and is a good friend of mine. NO he didnt even help the last time.
After a summer of him nit picking my truck apart...I told him...fine...lets redo it and this time your involved. I am hoping to learn alot.
I sold my door panels last week to a guy in Ohio and sold all my componets. Just need to sell my subs and center console and Jl 10w7s...those are in the foresale section
Here are the plans
-My Alpine dvd and either a 11" LCD in the dash-Focal 3 ways and a set of Focal 6.5 2 ways in the focal door( my buddy had them in his car and loved them. Even my G8 has them now.)
-Focals 5.25 in the kick panels(new custom made)
-Focals 5.25 in the rear door
-rear captain chairs in the back
-RE Audio SXXX 12" in the rear between the seats( or keep my JL Audio 10w7s)
-All amps mounts down the center console which will be from the back to the dash molded in
-Lots of plexiglass, blue LEDS and swade
-custom dash with about 7 gauages mounted in the dash abouve the cluster
-Not sure if I am using my PPI art amps or replacing....I love the amps but the plans I have calls for all new equipment....

I dont BS when it comes to my truck. I believe it will never end or be finished until it is perfect. I do have other plans for this truck but this should be the last interior mod. I am fully dedicated to this project and have a few guys willing to pull some late nights. This is a big commitment and realize this wont be easy. I figured last year was a training or starting point and with my buddy he will be teaching me the skill. The truck has been in both DieselPower twice and Dieselworld. I am hopinh when finished for another feature....Maybe Trucking or 8 Lug. The truck gets alot of attention at the events.
Hope you all enjoy this build. I will be posting as much as I can.
Holy mother of.... Thats a LOT of $k into sound. I like to hear sound in my truck, but not quite that way. Different strokes for different folks....
glad you've got one you like and have the $$$$$ to roll with it. Should be a good build
Well...this is not a daily driver. Its cummins powered and my toy. If you look at what its been through you would understand it/me....
