Every modification was done by my father (a professional fabricator) and myself. I am proud to say it has never been to a shop other than my own.

Haha! Stereos get addicting, huh? I initially got 12" subs because numerous audio professionals said 15" could not be done in a 5th Gen Camaro. Which of course just made me want to prove them wrong haha!
