Hi everyone, I thought I would let you in on a project im currently building for myself....It got under way a little while ago, but having to constantly work on customer vehicles/boxes/installs etc etc, its VERY difficult for me to find the time to work on it....
Over the past few weeks, I have cracked on as much as I can...but also had to do around 15 sub boxes for customers, as well as around 4-5installs...on top of answering calls, emails, pms as well as living my life, its been stressful!

The vehicle is still no where near complete, but I thought I would put this up just so you guys can see what we are capable of building....

First up, I have to thank the following people....who without, this wouldnt have been possible!

Am - AA/Fi/Knu Konceptz distro....without you, this dream wouldnt have happened! Thanks for your endless support and answering my million and one questions! Guy is a pure LEGEND in my eyes! Now im gonna bug u with my million and one power supply questions LOL!!!...

Indirectly, although I have never spoken to....a HUGE shout out to Scott...the designer and brains behind AA/Fi...You are simply the best at what you do! Never has a sub brought such a smile to my face...and NEVER have I NOT got bored of a sub/s! Thats a HARD feat on its own LOL!

Mike and Colin - CAD...you guys are AWESOME at what you do! Without you guys I would be VERY stuck at deciding what amps to use! Also thanks for your endless support when things havent gone quiet right on the amp front
or when I needed extra sound deadening at the last minute lol!

Ray @ Rayvern - For all the hard work you guys put into the air ride systems...all the problems we faced with weight issues....I hope when the batteries go in, things are still A OK LOL!

Nikki and Mike - For ALL their hard work on the flocking! They are AMAZING at what they do and I would never go anywhere else for the flocking work!

Loudboy - For the 4mm deadening....Well its 8mm + more in my case!! haha

Dum Dum - Sorting the alts out...im awaiting for them to come back...
Kit - for putting up with my endless spending! Keeping me going when im down...without u, this wouldnt have happened...ever!

Bobby (number 1)/Bobby (number 2)/Hardeep/Sandeep/Rohit/Mr C....basically the WHOLE teamSPB family - Without your help....this project wouldnt have got off the ground...literally when it came to putting the subs and box in LOL!!!

Thank you to ALL the above...your all golden in my eyes!

Now, a message for the haters...I aint going anywhere...im here to stay! Hate all you want...but this project is MY own sweat, blood and tears...if you dont like it...please jog on!

This install is NOT built do smash the mic apart...its also not built to be louder than anyone in particular...just something thats loud for what it is, and gets me noticed more than my Focus! I DO NOT CARE if Am's is louder than mine...just like I dont care if I dont beat Ian Pinder/the joose (Matt)/Mark Smith etc etc etc...If its loud enough for me...its all good!

Another message to you ALL...there is WAY too much hatred in this game! TOO many FALSE whispers! I have respect for EVERYONE in the audio game...if they dont show respect and a mutual understanding back...those are the haters im talking about!
Right...enough of the crap...its time to introduce the vehicle! Which may cause a bit of a stir LOL!!!

One of the first mods I did, was get Ray from Rayvern to fit the air ride system...

Reason I chose Rayvern...They use the BEST components for air ride system, and have been doing so for YEARS! There work is awesome to the last detail and I wouldnt want anyone else to touch the suspension apart from them...unless I HAD to!

The prices are awesome for the quality of work and quality of components used! Aftersales backup is great to

Parker Valves, Firestone bags, AVO shocks, thicker airlines...were all ordered up and custom built!

Bags in place




I then decided to put a late spec bumper on the car to as I wasnt a fan of the old one






Then it sat like this....

Last few bits and bobs on the exterior....

Bulb change


Not really a fan of orange indicators...


The lights were cut open, and then the orange filter broken and cut out...coupled with some silver bulbs


This was the result


MUCH better
