Alright guys, here it goes. Hopefully will be a very great worklog. This project as high expectations. We are taking a 99 Chevy Silverado and dropping a pretty penny into it. Are goals are to make a VERY eye catching and clean install and of course, i think it may be even get quite loud. This will be our first install like this one, but then again, this will hopefully be the type of install that many of you have not seen before yet either. This truck is sort of going to be like our business card on wheels, so we are pulling out all stops. We will take many, many pics along the way. We will start with complete sound deadening (hopefully within the next couple of weeks), and continue on with the fabrication of the sub box and amp racks, onto the dash which we will modify to hold a monitor, then relocating the headunit and climate controls in the armrest or lower in the dash. Also we will be installing a h/o alternator and yellow top, doing the big 3 upgrade and finish up with some kicks for the components.
Now for the equipment, enjoy. Pics will be updated as we go. All opinions/ideas are encouraged.

good luck, i'm sure this will look amazing, do you have a finish date planned for the fiberglass?

bjfish11
11-29-2005, 10:28 PM
nope, no date in sight. We are busy as hell right now with quite a few orders. So i guess i cant complain, making money instead of spending, but im anxious as hell to get this thing rolling. We are hoping to get going on the sound deadening in the new couple weeks, then the box will come next. But hell who knows...

well, we finally are pretty much caught up on boxes at least enough to begin this project. BUUUUUUTTTTT... having shoulder surgery tomorrow, so im praying that 2 weeks from now, the second skin part will be underway. I got all this stuff laying in my room right now. i hope my house dont catch on fire, cause if so, you will see a lot of audio equipment sliding down the roof.

Im very happy with it, but i may have to get rid of it. Just decided that i may not want to do the project. Think im just gonna go ahead and pay off some loans and "start planning my future"

U should install a laptop screen thats touch screen in the dash and be able to load all the music into the hardrive. Ive heard the sound output of the laptops are great, just an idea though, real rare to see that but thought it would be amazing as a marketing tool.

01-12-2006, 12:54 AM
well, actually, i may be selling it all, i have posted a fs thread. Havent decided yet for sure, but its a likely possibility
