Hey there forum,

Chances are that you have seen this thread before, or have glanced at pictures of my install at one point or another. It has been around for a while, but I have threads all over so I figured I would condense them to a single area. Some areas I forgot to take pictures of, like running the wires in the vehicle, laying fiberglass for the doors, and some fabrication steps. When it comes down to it, I was often doing this by myself and did not have extra (clean) hands to take pictures, or I would simply forget. I don't think I'm going to go into detail about what I did, pictures speak mostly for themselves. If there are questions, hopefully I have enough time in my new married life and time with the US Navy to answer any questions you may have. I hope you enjoy my installation.

Props go out to Jonsey for helping out when he did. Also my wife Carly for putting up with my audio addiction.

By the way, you will notice all this install was done in parking lots. No garage, no permanent work area, no big tools. Basically a drill, a jigsaw, a dremel, a power converter (for the jigsaw) and hand tools.
