World Champion Camaro Custom Install

After a very long time, I finally got this car finished (well pretty much), although I plan on doing a few more things before Spring Break Nationals 2012. I have just returned from the 2011 USACI World Finals in Shreveport, LA this past weekend and my car WON BOTH XTREME SQ and Q classes and I posted the highest (w/o SPL) score at the entire event. XTREME, formerly the EXPERT class is typically for manufacturers but I chose to build my car for this class on a limited budget and be competitive in it. We also had two other of our (TC AUDIO) builds that WON also in their classes. We build SOUND & INSTALL cars, NOT pounders. We have won over 30 World Championships in CAR AUDIO since 1990 so none of this is just "thrown" together. The car is functional and sounds awesome. It may be hard to believe but I have over 1200 hours in this build spread over about 10 months. I also have over 1000 build pics on this car, in stages, so let me know anything that you are interested in and I will post them up.

GOALS FOR THIS BUILD:

RETAIN STOCK OEM HEADUNIT
RETAIN AS CLOSE TO STOCK INTERIOR APPEARANCE AS POSSIBLE
ACHIEVE THE BEST POSSIBLE SOUND QUALITY WITH STOCK DASH & SEATS
BUILD THE CAR TO COMPETE IN USACI, IASCA, & MECA Organizations
PROVE THAT YOU CAN WIN WITH A STOCK HEADUNIT AND THE RIGHT SETUP
KEEP ALL EQUIPMENT COST BELOW $5000 at RETAIL ($4,900)---
(DOES NOT INCLUDE PARTS & MATERIALS OR INSTALL LABOR)
BUILD "FLASH" INTO TRUNK AREA BUT RETAIN AS MUCH USABLE SPACE
AS POSSIBLE!!!!

BTW.... Battery rack and amp rack both are built from 3/4" 14ga welded square STEEL that is fastened to the car with (26) 5/16" grade 8 BOLTS using 1/4" welded back plates under the car. It is solid but can still be removed and the ORIGINAL battery can be reinstalled, if desired. Majority of trunk trim work is all made of fiberglass, although some MDF used for flat panels. Kick panels drivers are 6.5" and car was cut and vented to the outside, protected with steel mesh from any debris or water from entering. All wiring was rerouted to make the room needed. The entire install and all panels have a zero gap tolerance but yet remain fairly easy to remove for any service work. OEM dash air vents were used in the rear and have a dual fan, dual blower ventilation system that is ducted in & out of the car through the original trunk side vents. All the wiring, especially POWER cable (1/0ga) to front, is better than factory and the right rear OEM small trunk fuseblock was incorporated into the NEW main fusepanel.

Damn....I don't even want to know how much that setup would cost.

Looks great, though. I'd love to have it.

Can you post pics of the kick panels to see how much they stick out? I had them in previous builds and they were great, just wouldn't work in a manual.

What are you running in the rear seat walls?

System looks amazing!

Todd is amazing. He did my GN that has won a few titles under his build work as well. I keep telling him we need to find a money tree somewhere to cut down for wheels and turbo kit. LOL

kickpanels are tight/cool subbox, only thing is the stickers on the front fenders look cluttered. Should be only one row, imo. Curious what you're hitting(SPL) w/ that set up(for SQ), low 140s?..
