Rounding Up The Rest Of The Demo Car Build

July 06

Well, at least for now we've completed the demo car for the summer, I'm sure it will change a few times for sure. We added Some Tein coilovers, Tein controller, and ran some power wire and other little goodies. We figured pulling the door off would allow us an easy path for running wire, which happened to be three seats of 16 ga wire, and three seperate sets of primary wire for future expansion (window control, door lighting etc). The wheel well was removed to run our two sets of power wires, and any other wires needed for the tein controller. We also added a pigtail in the back for hooking up to an inverter to run the car for shows.

Here's some pics of the Tein controller being molded into the ashtray area, pretty tight fit, but we managed to squeeze it in there. It got a bit heavy on the texture for our liking, but once it was tucked in it looked all right.

Subaru Fiberglass Amp Rack Is Here

July 16th

Another one of our products is officially released!! This particular product brought a few obstacles along the way, but we finally got it completed and ready for sale. This Perfect Fit Amp Rack sits directly behind your rear seat, while still allowing access to the spare. Constructed out of hand laid fiberglass with MDF trim ring, this amp rack will work well with most amplifiers, and has a nice open face to allow for cooling. As you can tell in the pics, the rack has a glossy black gel coat finish.

Amp Rack Specifications:

  • Mounting Area 32" by 10" or 24" by 13"

  • Mounting Depth 3"

  • Weight: 12 lbs.

Each Amp Rack comes with: glossy gel coat finish, all necessary mounting hardware, detailed instructions, and Audio Integrations Full Warranty.

Installation is easy!! The Perfect Fit Amp Rack mounts firmly to your Subaru with a very small amount of hardware and work. Once mounted with the included hardware and brackets, your amp rack won't be going anywhere no matter how crazy you drive! Using the factory square bar uprights behind the seat and our pre-drilled mounting brackets it makes for an easy and stealthy install.

Also available is the Alcantara Sti blue suede option to match the door inserts for a more custom look.

Door Pods For The Shop Subaru Begin

July 06

I've been meaning to getting around to doing this for a while, one of the main reasons for making the door pods is because you can't fit a real nice speaker behind the door panel without it either hitting the window and track or playing into the back of the plastic door panel. A lot of times people don't realize if they do get a larger speaker to fit behind the panel it usually hits the backside of the panel when it's playing at louder volumes.

Here's the begining of the door pods. I will have a 6, 4, and tweet set up in my door but it will also work for just a 6 and tweet.

Grill Design Laid out

With filler primer shot

Here's a couple shots of the finished door pod. This is just one of the grills that may be offered, so different looks and styles will be available. We also have to re-work part of the mold to make them more installer friendly and a little easier to reproduce. They're not the greatest pictures, have quite the yellow look to them. The vinyl we used was straight black and after cleaning them up on the door panel the black looks too dark. We got a charcoal color that we'll try next time for a closer to stock look.
