Its a very different industry now. No more magazines, sound quality competitions are few and far between, CES gets smaller every year, etc etc... Its tough to stay in the public eye when theres no way for them to view the work he does. Who knows, maybe the industry will bounce back, you never know whats around the corner... Its too bad because he's 10x better now than he ever was and continues to challenge himself every day. Dave is the last of the "greats" thats still installing, it seems everyone else has moved out of the bay and into an office...

I wish I could figure out how to make a fish tank look right in my car!!

Default Challenger SQ Install - Fishman

Fish will be back home tonight after spending the last week in California visiting with his family. He has a new job starting tomorrow that'll take about two months and then he'll be back here full time. He'll be home on the weekends but Ill mostly be working by myself until that job is finished. Ill post some more pics later on this afternoon.

Just so everyone knows Dave really appreciates all the positive comments! He's quite the humble guy but they still put a smile on his face. Doing what you love for a living is rewarding and its even better when you're appreciated

I thought the Ram was built for Streetwires. Had that crazy motorized winged sunroof, with the plexi seats and sunroof. I might still have the issue of CA&E with his Corolla in it somewhere. This guy built a ton of cool stuff in the 90's/00's but you don't see his name come up much anymore. Good to see he is still doing it. Too many great installers/fabricators start hating it and get complacent.
