here is a sample of the under hood lighting, I have it taped on for now I'm still not sure if I want to do it but I know when Im done Its going to be super clean and shiny engine so the lights would be great at the night time show and shines we have here. I know it looks blue but its a cell pic Its actually more white with a blue tint. I know its not every ones cup of tea but I'm in to this kind of crap so each to his own I guess.

i am really surprised you are allowed to work on your car in a underground parking facility.

Good progress in a short amount of time!

I don't generally work on my car where I park its to dark. Most of the pics I take from there are when I'm running my engine for a bit. We have a wash bay/loading bay where me and a few others work on our cars, but no major work can be done there (nothing that can spill oil or coolant). Once I finalize my interior and get my rims back on (pretty much all my current tires are shot/ugly as hell basically not safe to drive on) Then its off to my shop for top end work and then to exhaust shop for new muffler, C6 tips, remove the cat and connect the 3400 downpipe.

Sure makes it easy to see everything. You are going to need a strut tower bar so you can see the back of the engine. Yes I have a few.

Well if you break that one I can replace it(LOL). Also have a frame brace or two. Just an offer, not trying to make money off you. I don't make anything off parts anyway.

Ok, so all the mid is going to come from the front speakers. I swear that you can put a small mid driver between the 6x9's. Lets just say there is a good amount of 6in(or around that) subs and mids these days. Check out American Bass(heard good things about them and they are cheap).

Tell me what you get on the 6.5's and if they have a good clear sound. Could use some in the Cavy. Oh man do I love the new digital amps. Smaller, run cooler and have more power. Still have some of the large old school ones in storage. Hell they even got some four channel about the size of a dollar bill that put out 50w(if you can somehow get the right gauge wire to feed them).

I had a kicker 2 channel 750 watt digital the thing was ridiculous hard clean bass never overheated. I have a 500 watt digital alpine in my van running a 12" infinity reference sub and honestly people think I have 2 12's. Digital amps rock, I will let you know what I pick up. I'm hoping for some type r's to come on craigslist. But that's pretty far fetched.

Check Audio Savings site and then look at their Ebay store. Sometimes they have good deals(mostly on Ebay). Most deals are on sub and box combos though.
Also look at Image Dynamics for subs.
