Everything is ready to go once the H/O gets here, I just have to pay my Installer for the door panel customization and she will be getting dropped off for a week or so.

Almost color matched the fuse holder under the hood haha. I need to go buy a hydraulic crimper to finish that install since main power wire is ran and I dont want to hammer crimp on the car.

When your shop is working on Russell Wilson's Benz AMG truck conversion and has my favorite Ferrari inside.

Finally dropped her off this morning to go under the knife.

 

New updates will be coming soon: some chrome delete on front end, h/o alternator install, removing NAV TV unit and Factory head unit for Sony Double Din and customized doors for dual 8" Stevens Audio MB8-2 speakers per door.

Honestly I doubt it since he didn't say anything about it besides it's one of his favorite Ferrari's like mine.

Picked her up today, car is dusty as hell. Just took some quick pictures but I will get better ones in the daylight once the car has been detailed. 

 

So glad to see over 14.xx volts during hot days, start up is 15.0 volts. This Brand X Alt seems bad ass so far. Haven't really got on the bass or anything so can't comment on all that just yet.

Things to do:

 

1. Bezel behind radio to make it cover hole behind it which is only seen when looking at radio from side or top while getting in. It's not noticeable at all sitting in seats.

2. Pop trunk button relocation which wasn't done for some reason. I'll find that out tomorrow.

3. Grills for the 8"s.

4. Tune tune and tune.

Insane for real and it still needs to be tuned and set up, just got done detailing the whole interior of the car. Sweated my ass off in this 95 degree plus night. Some pictures from earlier before I detailed her.

 

When I get time and it dialed in, I'll post some videos of the front stage. I'm already planning on upgrading the subwoofer amp and maybe go to two beastly 12s. Need to meet up with my box builder and talk numbers. But the sub decision might not be till next year though. Stay tuned

The shop sent me out the door with the wiring management looking sub par and a too small fuse on the alternator (200a fuse for a 250ho alternator).  I bought some ceramic fuses for my under hood distribution block and fixed the wire management because it was an eye sore even though the hood is closed 99.9% of the time
