    No, I decided to stop watching how everybody were working on your car while you were polishing a brand new amp in the back of the car...
    Anyhow, you already have both (+) and (-) wires ran through and fused?
    What about the distro block... Did you already screw that into the trunk somewhere?

    Well, we've only got the + wire run. But the negative should be easy since it should be as short as possible. The + wire is not fused. Neither is the dist block. And its not screwed in yet either.

    Today's progress:

    I got the 16ft Xenarc extention cable.

    Car is in shop and I'm $750 poorer Car is getting new rack and pinion steering since mine is leaking, and 2 new shocks because one of them died. Atleast this will fix my steering annomalies. Plus I opted for some kyb shocks up front instead of the stockers.

    Yeh, but the car will drive better. The steering was quite sloppy for a while. This should fix that problem, plus make the car stiffer.

    Mold was out of cardboard boxes. He then turned that into thin wood, and we test fit it and cut it some more. So basically we now have a wooden peice that fills the whole driver's side rear quarter panel. The amps are getting mounted at around a 25-30 angle. I'd have the pics, but the camera is in my trunk at the shop
