Thought I would start a thread of the work I have been and will be doing to my ride.
I installed new lights today.
Previous audio setup. I had 2-12" PPI sub's
New audio setup. I will be going with 4-10" Alpine's.
Also got some new component speakers, haven't installed them yet. Waiting on another pair to arrive that I ordered

Police car alternator works. They have to run all those pretty little party lights on their cars. But it does look nice.

Thanks .. Ya.. 200 amp alt... A 2nd battery and a wire upgrade (bigger positive, negative and alt cables/wire ) does the trick... 200 amp alt is good for a 2000 watt sound system at full power . And is good for entire electrical system, lights, a/c.. Etc.. Etc with stereo at cruising volume.. Plus charge an extra battery
