So the drop off date has been moved to December 12th due to Eric breaking his back earlier this year. I can't wait to start posting some update pics!

Thanks everyone for the kind words

I was in the industry for 3 years right out of high school and just before I went on to do something else, I built a full system for a good friend. He bought a 1995 Black Dodge Ram standard cab and I went to town using what was then, the all new Kicker amps plus their drivers. It took me a month to build and I was doing things I had never attempted before. I worked in the front of the store, I didn't install. Our goal was to compete in Macon, GA at a big event. Well, it took 12 hours to get to Macon which was 8 hours away.... we missed the deadline and we were both pissed. Then a bit of light shined down, a rep for Kicker walks over and loves the truck and asked us to put it in their booth. I couldn't be happier and I'm back on cloud 9 until I pulled the truck into the convention center. Guess what company was next to Kicker, Streetwires. Guess what Streetwires brought to show off.... another black Dodge Ram. Talk about getting kick in the nuts twice in one day!

Fish is a legend and in actuality, love the fact I got to see his Ram in person!
Challenger looks amazing!

No straight bodies...just not enough room. You can see how much they had to cut out to install the regular bodies After talking to Eric it sounded like I wouldn't gain much if anything anyway.

im having a hard time imagining where the hole for the horns is located. im assuming the engine firewall on each side as outboard as possible, but the picture is too close to understand. could you take one a bit further out?

mad balls to cut into a new car like that.

Sorry but I don't have any better pics to post right now. I'll hopefully get a few new ones this week, they started welding in the passenger side yesterday. You've got the right idea though... the horns go through the firewall and into the engine compartment and are mounted as far to the outsides as possible. If I could back up that picture a bit you'd see the engine and windshield.

I'm not familiar with Challengers but I'm guessing the large hole with the 4 smaller holes around it is the opening the steering column passes through in the firewall. The pic is taken from the engine compartment side?

I think you are right. looking at the blown up pic (via the clicking the picture), I see the tools on the floorboard. there is a lot of bracing in that area on the car, and it looks like they cut an access hole in the shape of of the horn body to get to where the body is mounted.

From the other pics it looks like it could have been accessed from underneath too, just based on the location of the opening in the cabin itself.

That hole is where the Master Cylinder was mounted. You can see the disconnected brake lines in the pic also. Yes the pic is taken from the engine compartment side.
