            The metal pieces are brackets that hold the subwoofer/computer box to the car. It keeps the box from moving while I am driving.

                  mp3stang02 ,

                  Very clean setup! Some questions:

                  1. Where did you get your display from and what type is it?
                  2. What software are you running for mp3 playback?
                  3. Did you hard wire your power inverter? I notice that you don't have it plugged into the cigarette lighter.


                  Thanks for the info. Again, nice setup. Like how the equalizer is installed with the display.

                    At www.eio.com. It is a 40X2 character LCD but I forgot the brand & model.


                    2. What software are you running for mp3 playback?

                    Winamp 2.X with IR and LCD plugins.

                    Yes, it is hardwired.

                      I had actually never seen them called eVectras until this thread, but all the ones we purchased were all HP ePC's, so you might ebay for that too.

                          No, you are mistaken. My engine is 281 CID.

                            you may be thinking of the old 60s mustangs. those had 289s. current model mustangs are 281.

                            And, dude, great setup, but add a rear- aux in to the AIWA - very easy to do, and makes it look so much better.

                              older 5.0 engines and the late 60s models were 289CID you are correct the current 4.6L motors are 281
