Check out Cabe's mp3car forum section Ask Cabe Sipes
Rob Wray from mp3Car interviews Cabe Sipes from Pimp My Ride and Rock the Boat about what modding cars is like on a TV set.
Cabe talks about his experience on the set of Pimp My Ride and how a fabrication team deals with car computer installs.
Cabe Sipes shows off his truck with a ton of computer and audio related modifications. Cabe has a 10 inch touch screen along with 2 7 inch head rest screens.
Being a huge fan of how this car sounds, he has multiple amplifiers running to 2 15 inch subs.

As far as what I would have changed.......nothing. I have known all the guys that built that car for years and they are all as top notch as they come.
As far as in the inustry there are so many people I respect its hard to answer but a few would be Sam Horn, Wayne Harris and Matt Bogart. I bet you have never heard of those guys because they were originating all this before it was cool and have contributed more to the industry than I ever could.Hehehehhe. Thanks.
Sometimes I get on a roll after my second cup o' joe.
When your brain moves faster than is necessary to accomplish the task at hand (grasp mug. lift mug to lips. tip mug. sip coffee slowly.),the unused portion goes pretty much wild. Sometimes funny and interesting stuff like that comes out.
Sometimes it's scary stuff.
And every once in a while I solve a problem that's been plaguing me while I'm writing an email or playing Wii...
Personally, I'm hoping you do make it all the way and earn that slide rule. I bet you know some top-shelf pinstripers that would go all Von Dutch on an old-school metal slide rule!
Seriously, Cabe, you really do amazing work. Anyone who isn't impressed has no clue about fabrication.
And there's something I have wanted to ask since you rolled up here.
I'm sure you're aware of Will Castro, UA and his show. I think every fabricator is aware (and quite probably jealous) be they professional or amateur.
They did one show a few years ago where they brought in other top fabricators and industry people to work on a hearse for NASCAR driver Tony Stewart: Steve Brown of Alpine, Gary Biggs of JBL and Dave "Fishman" Rivera from Metra.
Did they contact you about working this build?
Could you have even participated in it with your affiliation with PMR or Rock Da Boat or other TV ventures?
And the flip side...
Assuming you've seen their work & the final result, what would you have done differently if you were working on any portion of the build, if anything)?
In your career as a fabricator, who do you admire, respect, idolize, worship, respect or whatever in the industry?
