The window molding is rusted and chipped.  The Tires had no hubcaps. The car had been in a minor accident and had deep scratches along the left side of the rear door. The head lights are faded and need to be replaced.

Make your vehicle work for you

This vehicle sound system will be built to suit Scott's Lifestyle as a DJ. We decided to go with a Ratrod look to fit Scotts personality. 

Phase 2

Tear down and remove all door panels, dash, current stereo system from interior.   Pull out rear seat, rear deck and all speakers. Check all electrical and see what is working and what is not.  Wire Alarm System. Remove Tires and remove struts. Replace Current Springs with Eibach lowering springs. Install stereo and speaker, dynomat doors and trunk. Put all back together.    

Phase 3

Send Car to body shop to fix body dents and dings.   

Eclipse Sun Shade

Scott's dash is cracked due to excessive exposure to the sun so to help protect his dash and personal belogings from the suns rays we are installing an Eclipse Sun Shade. The Eclipse Sun Shade is a self retracting, self storing sun shade that is made to custom fit each vehicle to ensure full coverage of the front windsheild. The Eclipse Sun Shade will also help keep Scott's vehicle cool during the scortching hot summers in El Paso. 

WeatherTech All Weather Floor Mats

The carpets in "The Beast" are faded, worn and dirty. We will install a set of WeatherTech all weather floor mats to help protect Scott's car from dirt, water or any kind of spill and yes even snow. This will help Scott's keep the interior clean by simply removing and dumping out dirt or trash that has collected.  The All Weather mat are durable and will not crack or curl.  Most WeatherTech mats are vehicle specific and designed for your vehicle's size and shape. 

Dash Designs

Scott's dash is in bad shape due to prolonged exposure to the Sun. We will install a Dash Design custom dash cover to help protect his dash in the future from the harmful UV rays that can cause discoloration and future cracking.  This dash cover will aslo help reduce the amount of glare and reflect heat.    

Audio/ Entertainment

"The Beast" stereo system is equiped with the stock stereo so we decided that we would install a Pioneer In dash DVD 2DIN W/5.8 Display MP3/WMA/AAC front to give Scott all the latest mobile audio options.  We will install a single Sub Box 12 Ported JBL woofer and power it with a JBL 5 channel 50W RMS X 4Channel X 4 Ohms+500W RMS AMP.
