You are doing a fairly thorough job

For the parts, you might want to consider installing JEPC.

Hey Man

There is absolutely no way your garage is empty !. This is WOW factor Nine, stuff. Great to see someone giving my favourite Cat model -(although by some a somewhat underrated automobile) a real rebuild. Man Oh Man !---those wheels... Oh my God.... what an idea.

What is it like inside ? did you bling it yet. I cannot wait to see the completed job.

I wait with impatience to see the pics. I changed my discs and pads only 4 weeks ago - the wheels look real neat - but my friend, not a neat as your baby cat.

Heres me mocking the doors up to start building the pods for the speakers, this pods will not be finished until they look stock like they came with the car, will be wrapped in exact match leather, and I will use the factory speaker grills.


Angle just to show what im going for, will not be held on with straws, lol

Here is the picture of the MMATS HD4000.1 amplifier I just put in my other car this week, but will be ordering one for this car for the bass end of the install shortly. 4,000 true watts RMS at 1 ohm

This amp used a boosted voltage rail technology, producing over 4,000 watts RMS in an amplifier that is no larger than a sheet of notebook paper. These amps are TOP OF THE LINE. I just replaced a 4,000 watt RMS amp with this one and it was almost 3 times as large, LOL and the performance of this destroys what the other one did.

OK MORE UPDATES, due to a facebook hijacking, i am here as a new user so I will not be able to login under my old name without that facebook account or edit posts, see signature for more details.

New amp has arrived! The MMATS HIFI6150, which will power 150 watts RMS x 6 to the front doors! also, the original front door idea is moving to the rear doors, and my new speakers for the front doors should be here tomorrow!

This amp is state of the art sound quality technology, with internals only seen on $100,000+ home theater setups. 100% hand built in Florida with all 1% tolerance parts.


AND THE GUTS!
