2/3rd done with the install/upholstery.....gonna do another couple grand in white suede, as well as a lil more croc.  Were tryin to make it so the interior doesnt look "half done" since theres still way too much tan plastic pieces and such left to cover.  I also have that 3rd fiberglass "rack" im waiting to get wrapped before i can hook crossovers and the c2k 4.0 up.  The 4kw's in the pics arent hooked up yet theyre just sittin there right now till i get the piece in the center console finished that will house 4 displays for the 4kw's....oh ya this thing lights up and looks amazing with the white suede.  More pics as they SLOWWWWWWWWWLY trickle in.  :D

heres a few update pics....the crossover/zapco 4.0 rack.  Like the amprack and shroud..this was handbuilt from scratch....wood, fiberglass, and wrapped in suede.  Goin back to the shop to take some pics of the misc interior stuff that has been completed this last week.  Slowly coming around...all the tan plastic on the A, B, and C pillars is wrapped in white suede now and he even made some croc "sleeves" where the seatbelt slips thru the plastic. (pics to come later)

the small black rectangular peices are just some croc accents.  the notches in the bottom are where the hump under the back seat is along with all the seat brackets it will be wrapping around.

more pics......the carpet is going to be swapped out and done in black so yet another delay in me gettin the wires 100%.  Its all good for the most part they are all ran.

so the seats are out right now this is just kinda an idea what its gonna look like.  you lift the bottom of the seat and you see crossovers and the zap c2k 4.0.  then you drop the top of the back seat and bam theres the 4kw's and the 15's....

The black knob is for changing the color of the box.  It can be any color imaginable just about.
