I actually put my car on my work schedule (it's the only way to guarantee the time)

that said I demand more of my car/self because it's a personal statement of how far you can take a car an audio system while still maintaining usability.. not too mention it's always an evolution. last yr spring break it was all diamond audio an focal with mmats amps.. HIN it was all Mmats Pro Series components. now it's a mix (Still 99.99% Mmats) Mmats Pro series mixed with Mmats "Pro Audio" LOUDSPEAKERS (I'm not normally a fan of loudspeakers as they tend to "bark" due to lack of tuning.. Pro Audio loudspeakers are much cheaper an require less power... BUT they require ALOT more tuning... so tune it I did.. now I'm a fan of properly tuned loudspeakers..

lastly I found (in my storage ) a pair of Image Dynamics Compression Horns.. they made a huge difference in imaging an staging.. so if u make it back to Orlando come by an take a listen. ..

I wanted to ask if you still have plans on redoing your Nike Light install?

Troy I do plan on redoing the Nike mod but funds have been tight so the cars been on the back burner.... maybe in a month or two..

true to form (an lack of sleep) the I.D. horns were mounted an installed the night b4 the show... 3:45am to be exact.. here are a few pic b4 an after.. since the grilles were rushed I'll redo them later for a more oem feel...

even the #lasers I mentioned once upon a time only became a reality 6am the morning of the show.. an held secret until my car was judged for the Night Glow competition.
it's a lil cheesy... but sometimes a lil wow factor helps

I don't wanna be the guy to mention you have no recent pics with models here so I'll refrain.

Why go to a party when you're already inside the party.

I've been asked a few times about some of the body mods..In particular the Black Pearl front bumper. it has had the side vents filled in an the front tag mount removed. the oem parking sensors were also hand drilled an mounted using oem mounting clips (glassed to the back of the bumper) the lower 3 grilles are made from 3 pair (& everyone knows my motto.. why have 1 when u can have 2 for TWICE as much) oem 14' grilles cut and molded together (because nothing fits like factory) to filled the larger openings..

side note. the parking sensors were a real pain because after the 20 coats of paint (an I'm serious about that) i had to hand sand/re-drill the holes. imagine turning a
uni-bit by hand (as to not damage but remove the paint) 3 spins backward for each spin forward so they fit PERFECTLY. then just a hair more b4 the final coat of paint.

we literally put the front clip together +30 times just to make sure the fit an look was right after each mod. the fenders (omg the nightmare of the fenders) praying I didn't screw em up after I cut the openings for the "lumicite" .. 1st the opening was cut 1/16th smaller than to piece.. then (for 3 nights per fender 9pm-2am) hand sand away the 1/16th so it slide in snug an flush to the surface. once that was done . carefully dremeled a 30 slope on the back side so it could be glassed into place permanently..
