November 1999

As I just finished upgrading the audio system on the car, I figured it was time for some more pictures.  I plan on providing appropriate annotations and/or commentary for these pictures in the near future.

Actually, there's still one thing to do (as of 01-Dec-1999): installing a couple of fans to keep the amp cool.  The raised deck has holes for them, but I haven't installed them yet.

Audio System Upgrade Information

This is just a quick-and-dirty summary of information about my recent audio system upgrade.  I don't have time to do anything better right now (01-Dec-1999), but plan to within the next week or two.

Some General Notes and Observations

Pictures

A bunch of these pictures are really more related to the details of door panel removal than the audio system, but as I've had my door panels off a few times over the last couple of months for various reasons, I figured it was worth documenting.
