Fat and Loud

Besides working on the SSR Amazon, I managed to do some work on the C10 and the Roadster.
Summer is here and the need for well working cool cars is obvious.
Loud Music ! 
When riding along in my automobile....and to avoid singing by my self which will scare away people, a music player was needed.
Needed parts laid out on the Camaro Z28 hood, a mix of stuff from different sources !

The Z28 is waiting for a fuel injection. More about that later on.

This is the Retrosound model 2 with radio, USB, Blue tooth, and aux including phone integration. Still looking old, it turned out to be rather good although a little vulnerable due to all adjustments to fit all dash boards.  Håkan has bought one for Carinas Pick-Up Truck called, Little Blue (it's a C20...).
Power is the thing and we need 12 volt. red for positive and 
don't forget a good earth connection.
Amplifier and sub woofer are waiting to find there place, the only missing on the picture are all the cables and those needs to be invisible....which ain´t as easy as it seems.
Nowadays all cables seems to be borrowed from a power station.
Dashboard had to be removed when two center speakers was assembled. Needed? Well,
it was at least a good way to get some good sound pressure.
TADA! The radio fits just fine and together with some more speakers, it'll support a summer feeling.

Does it all work? Does it sound good? Well, when you combine the player with an amplifier, a subwoofer and 6 speaker it's good. Really good. Especially with a 454 big block humming softly in the background.

Fat Meat !

Now over to something else. My roadster. The new tyres came a little too close to the body hence some spacers was needed
Close shave. Not good enough.
2 inch spacers makes a difference
Looks much better !

But I'll get some experience while drive the car. 
Could be that 1,5 inch spacers are a better than the 2 inch that I use right now
Nevertheless, it's time to focus on the Amazon now because the ship is soon sailing and we're not ready yet.
