Hey so starting up my build here and see how it goes. installed the cold air so far and am currently working on the sound system.

Hopefully it works ok down half the wiring and build a box that will cover the entire back end so when the seats fold down can still have a flat surface to lie stuff on.

ill post picks tonight of my first time wiring job

stay tuned hopefully exciting build I'm sure it will have some funny mistakes along the way too

yeah exactly im going to take the handles and cloth hanger hooks off and get some longer bolts for them and then make a railing that will attach to all the handles and that way i can mount the amp to the roof.
i thought it would be a cool look when its mounted and the lights on it are on

it is a cool concept. you just have to make sure that they don't shake anymore than need be and also that wires don't come loose while powered up.

sorry about not responding. i love my HIDs, they illuminate the road so much better than the stock halogen and as a bonus they look good
