Images from back in 99'. This year I am refreshing the installation with several new components and finishing off several of those "to be completed later" items that never got finished. Most the major components except the H/U are nearly 15 years old. I Hope to also update some of the installation with newer install techniques such as a glassed rear deck, updated power distribution (with cap), yellow top battery, etc. Thanks for stopping by. More images to follow.

Nice Install, I am Nakamichi's biggest fan...I hope to replace my interior speakers with all Nakamichi, including my headunit. I would however hit those amps with a black sharpie... it hides scratches great! Nice Job! :)

Korndog- All of the stock speakers were upgraded to Nakamichi separates (5 1/4 midbass with a 1" dome). I added a system diagram today to the gallery to better illustrate all of the audio components in the car. Yes getting through that funky VW con

Thanks - The planning leading up to the install took a bit of time but the actual project was completed in about 4 days. I am missing some photo's that would really help fill the gaps in the gallery. If the weather continues to cooperate here in Michig
