I've been working 14hr days so I haven't had any time to work on the wiring. We're gonna meet up at SBN so he'll get a chance to hear it then.

Have you been to SBN before? I was thinking of going in '14, but when I was looking at the FB page for SBN '13 a lot of the people were complaining because the demo times were ridiculously short due to sound ordinances that they were apparently enforcing. I'd be less than thrilled if I drove 1200 miles for that. There's a lot of cars I want to see (and maybe hear).

Ive always wanted to go but never had a Car worthy... SBN seems to be the last of the big shows which is why I want to go. Plus it'll be a nice break from the Chicago weather.

It's not a Fishman install without a custom steering wheel.

I have attached the 6 of the 8 pages of Dave "Fishman" Rivera's install on the Streetwire's Ram truck.

Dave is a legend and I would love for him to do an install for me! I like his work on this Ram truck but, my favorite was his work on the Honda Accord.

I have the magazine with the Honda Accord article but, I will have to dig it up if anyone wants to see it.

Dave if you read this, you work is awesome!!!

Wow but I remember the dodge I guess with the second install
The strokers were right behind the seat and the dash had
A tube tv around 20" or so.
Also when I was up at street wires here in my town (winder , ga)
I got to look close at the truck and I remember Jerry (owner of street wires)
Told me all the terminal blocks, Wire etc. were dead ends not really connected just
For show and all the batteries in the bed were just the tops and were empty. Lol
But no one could tell LOL
And I love the tail gate rams head when it's opens to say look at me !!

AWESOME install! I can't believe I threw out all my CA, CSR, & CSE mags when we moved in 2009. Fishman IS the ultimate installer!

Let me start by saying that Dave has been one of my favorite custom installers EVER. Have always loved his creativity. Seen almost all his installs in the mags and even watched the "Hurst" he built with Steve Brown and Gary Biggs on Unique Whips a few years back.

Anyways, are those amp covers made from CNC metal or are they wood painted?

Loving the install. You and Dave. Keep it up.

Installers will always be the ARTIST of this industry !!!

Thanks for the compliments Black Rain (hahaha).

The covers are made out of T-6061 Billet Aluminum that Dave and I cut out on a Router Table. No CNC Machine was used anywhere in the install, he made everything by hand.

That episode of Unique Whips really made Fish look like a prima-donna and an idiot...it really bothers him, to the point that he doesn't like to talk about it. If you know Fish he is the coolest, most entertaining guy and never acts conceited. Dave has a unique way of working and the way the editing was done it made him look like a fool. The only positive this he talked about was how great it was to work with Steve who he really admires. That guy can Build some bad ass shit!

I had it running last year and it sounded great just needed more Power to the mids. The major equip changes this year are the Milbert which will run the horns vs my TRU B475 and I also swapped out my Helix P-DSP (which I had major problems with) for a Bit Ten. Im not expecting a huge difference between the Milbert and the TRU (it was built with BB627 OpAmps)...thats more of a love affair thing to me. Im also going to vent the 6x9's through the firewall and try out several different horn bodies. I have about half the brackets built for the horns so once Im done I can swap them out quick to do listening sessions.

I CANT WAIT TO FIRE IT UP!!!

Your right they didnt paint a good picture of him. Either way hes one hell of a fabricator and installer. So no machines. Where did you buy it at? Can it be purchased at Lowes or HomeDepot?

Also, are you trunk panels glass/wood? How did you secure all the panels in the truck?
