Any updates with this thing?

Yeah, the back was chopped off that box to add more volume and extra power runs from the alternator back (3x 0g total). Its got dual alts, one stock 60A and the other I think is 140A ? Might be 180A.. Switching was added so the alt can be turned off cos the regulator on the big alt is funky and over-charges like a bitch :)
Power will be 4x XS Power batteries with machined buzz bars, they were just ordered.

I saw it mid week, the dash board is back in it, and the framework of the trim panels had been started. Its gunna get glassed out.

I'll be in there tomorrow so I'll take the camera and get some progress pictures..

Also, I'm to make it clear this is the shop Demo car. The shop SPL vehicle is a 90's Astro van :beer:

You're gunna pop some tags ? Got stolen screws in your pocket ? :eek:

Here's a batch of pix..

Not related to this build, but here's MB installing with his world famous grinder :P


Batteries are staying here with some trim panels and machined bars.. $500 worth of them and double 0g on the amps


Here's the power runs off the alternator.. the Civic's got a stock 60A and 140A (I think, maybe 180A ?) aftermarket one too


Dash is back in place, and everythings SD'd to an inch of its life


Trimming out the front of the wall, FG sculpted and all. Once set, this is getting notched to accomodate the seatbelts ;)



When stripping it for the full rebuild MB found this fantastic wiring job, wrapped in electrical tape and shoved into a spray paint can cap. Worlds best distro-block.
Most of the wiring in this was a mess like this, or burnt.

Looking good, hope there's some bracing behind that baffle? :unsure:

Thats a shocking job joining 0g, :laugh: I wonder what sort of voltage drop you would get across that bad boy? :whistle:

Dunno, but when we probed the original speaker wiring there was close to 1ohm of resistance in the connectors.. so that would be similar.

that poor civic has seen soooo many systems, I feel bad for it. but this one looks pretty sweet. I stopped by but his door was locked, so I made the drop in the mailbox for him

I'm trying to convince him to rat rod it.. no side windows, louvered steel hatch window, leave the fenders off, over-wheel mini-arches, chopped bumper and finished in matte black.

Have you seena rat-rodded Civic ? Looks dope.

That paints going away.. this was another shops demo car, then it got handed around for a while, now LA owns it and want to loose the old image.

Its packing a pair DD 9518's SC with carbon cones, one M3a for now (as the M4's are back ordered) and 4x big XS Power batteries.

You should get pics, nothing has been built without showing of pics :P

Sounds impressive, needs alot more power though? i would have thought 5-6k per sub?
