Default 92 SC 300 Install Begins (Version 2)

Decided to start a new thread since my last one since I changed gear. Following will be installed shortly.

Basically the car is this: 1992 Lexus SC 300 coupe with 72,000 original miles. Car is in perfect condition and the second one I have ever owned. I should never have sold the first. Anyway it is my daily driver and was going to get a very basic system consisiting of slash series amps, Alpine head and JL sub. Now things have changed.

New system consist of the following:
Alpine IVA-W505 head unit
Alpine PXA-H701 processor
Alpine DVA-S690 DVD changer in glove box
Morel Elate 6 mids
Morel Supremo Piccolo Tweeters front
Morel Tempo 5's for rear feel
JL audio 600/4 bridged (300 x 2) on front components
JL audio 750/1 on 13TW5 sub in spare tire well
ARC Audio Mini for rear fill (125 x 2)
JL audio 13TW5 sub

Possible other upgrades on stand by.

Now to the pics.

Doors are dynamated extremed all the way around and the factory lexus baffle modified to fit the front 6 1/2's. Looks very easy but wasn't. A lot of MDF and liquid nails.

Amp rack was simple after relocating the wiring for the fuel pump and just doing some rearranging.

Rack supports the 701 (middle) and the JL amps 600/4 and 750/1 left and right. All of that is hidden behind the factory panel.

ARC Mini will go on the back left fender opening completely hidden also.

Tell me what you guys think of the progress so far. Should have sub building pics and more wiring pics soon.

Thanks,

Shane

Battery wiring done. Ran two 4 gauges to the rear distribution block. Battery will be changed shortly but here's the wiring. Small fuse holder is for the DEI remote start.

Awesome set up!!! I love my IVA HU. Good choices in all of the components, cant wait to see it finished, especially the spare tire sub....thought of the same thing once but decided against it.

Wiring so far is very very clean! Nice job. What did you use to mount your amp rack or is it resting on the gas tank?
