  • Installation Description

    The car was free, so I decided to take advantage of the opportunity to invest in making it a more enjoyable ride. Being a 19 year old full-time student with a part-time computer tech job there's not much else I need to spend money on. I know it's not much compared to others. However, I feel it's a good start for me and I look forward to once I graduate and am making bank. I'll be sure to put this set-up to shame with my next car.

    Sound deadening.

    A vision.

      Nice upgrades. Im looking to do some similar upgrades to my accent as well because my stock audio is pretty bad.
