1955 Chevy Bel-Air

This car was beautiful! The customer's father had a '55 Bel Air during his childhood. When he retired from 30+ years of military service, his wife and children bought him one as a restoration project. He and his son built the car over the course of 3 years, and did most of the work themselves. They put in a 300hp V8 engine...1955 Chevy Bel-Air Custom Install


1956 Mercedes 190SL

This Mercedes belongs to a regular customer of mine who happens to like ALL Mercedes, including their Maybach brand. He owns two of the Maybachs. Every time I'm given one of his vehicles to work on, he demands that the install is as unobtrusive as possible and keeping with the factory look.

1971 Chevy Chevelle SS

Customer came in wanting both of his vehicles to be worked on. His sons' H3 had a couple of Fosgate P1 and a T100BD amp. Knowing that the P1s could not handle the power, we sold him some JLs in two sealed enclosures. We then took his P1s and convinced hime to do a build out on his trunk (thanks to the recent 69 Mustang pictures). 1971 Chevy Chevelle SS Custom Install

I did a bed cut and made a ported...2002 Ford Lightning Custom Install
