    Ah, I saw that you had mounted the irman receiver there but the keyboard receiver appeared to still be in the box.

    That is one FLY car! How much did it cost for all that stuff? When do you think it will be ready to roll out?

    Nice work! NICE!

    in my spare time i'm actually trying to make a cost sheet for everything. but its been years that i've been buying stuff for the car so i can only guess on some of it. i'm kinda curious myself. my first 2 years on this forum i changed the motherboards at least twice getting faster each time. and i added options as i went along. hopefully i can finish it by the end of august if it stops raining. by finish i mean maybe not painted but at least having some sound.

    the dash is almost finished. i mounted the center speaker, the surround processor and the irman eye. now i need to get the receiver for the 8 channel remote mounted and thats done. then i will fiberglass the whole back. right now my sub frame is all glassed and mounted and sealed to the cabinet. the undercar neon is done as well as the interior accent pieces which are 12. also finished with the new headliner and the mounting of the 2 audio control eqt's and 4xs on the ceiling behind the sunroof. i'll try to post some more pics tonight and tomorrow.

    edit: new pics posted

    well i got as far as getting the display neon in and the plexiglass screwed in over the computer and power distribution compartments. i took the car for a ride-first time in 4 years- and the coil wire got caught in the timing belt. the belt jumped so i replaced it. now the weather is so cold i cant get outside to finish the job. i have to install my mid bass drivers in the front doors too. i made the plate for them and they're all set. so who knows-i may have to wait for next summer-going to be another long winter...again

    rhinolining is the way to go. If you do the prep work yourself...and i mean damn good work, take everything down to the bear metal, your looking at about 1000 dollars for rhinoline the entire car. Im about to get my mustang rhinolined...everything, doors, interrior, enginebay. i got a quote of 1500, but thats with me taking it all apart and rhinolining it.

    Also...as a note, Dynamat reduces efficiency by 50%...thats 50%!!! over a period of ONE YEAR. with temp changes, dynamat looses is LDPE (low denisty polyethylene) heat seal layer with a 30 degree temp drop. so, with a microlayer heat seal missing, you loose your heat barrier...and even worse, the sound dampening dramatically reduces.

    I am a packaging science major at clemson, and we do alot of work with dynamat. ITS MUCH better, and worthwhile to go with rhino. just my 2 cents...

    Holy cow, I've seen your install pics before, but I'm still amazed. I just have one question though. I saw that your center channel is mounted in a plastic Shedd's Spread dish. I did something similar back in my college days with a pair of 4" full range speakers in 32oz plastic cups. Unfortunately, there was a ton of "sound coloring" from those. (if that's a term) They sounded really plasticy. Are you doing anything to fix that? On the other hand, maybe Shedd makes better speaker enclosures. I'd say if too much is just enough then you're on the right track with this install. Looks great.
