All the installation was easy except cutting the holes out from the front grill so people could see the speakers. Mounting the cap in the back and mounting the amps to a sheet of diamond plate was also tough.

What's the first thing you show people about your installation?
What's in the trunk. I think I did a nice job on it.

What was the most difficult part of the installation?
Installing the door speakers.

A new projects car.
