    Just getting going on the speed mod's now myself, got new heads and cam to put in this weekend to compliment my intake, headers and exhaust followed my the LS7 clutch and tune! Super stoked, nothing beats the hum of these motors!
    Very Nice, if you weren't on the other side of the country I'd come drink beer and watch you! Have fun with the install!

    amazing job on everything, I'm sure it's like a whole new car as far as entertainment goes! respect man! I'm currently doing my system (just upgraded the big 3 and finally got the box finished) but i was curious how hard was the rear arm rest to do? Did you actually make a new one or just modify the old one?

    Thank you for the compliment. The arm rest was easy, just took the whole assembly out and sold it on ebay. Then build a box to fit (I made mine out of plexiglass but you could easy do wood) in the same dimensions (you have to make a slit in the box for the brackets to slide past), did a little bondo work on the face so the speakers would sit flush and wrapped it in vinyl. Then drill a hole to run the speaker wire through the back and you're done!

    Here's a few pics:

    I just dumped the POS nav unit! Istalled a single DIN eclispe cd7200, focal speakers, jl10w7 sub, 2 audison amps (lrx series). It could compete in a SQ competion and I don't miss any of the factory BS.
