I have done most of the work except my trans work, but not cuz i don't know how, but for 350 at a ford dealer(dads a service manager) and me not having a lift, the price cannot be beat!


also, i bought the door panels as is with the speakers, buddy was parting out his car and this soung stage is as good as its getting on a cougar for the front left and right.

oh yea, and i paid to have my power wire ran, i'm lazy. lol
