    Never bought one of his radios, but I've seen them on his website. Looks like he does good work! His channel boards are top notch(y) Let us know how you like it.

    its like the 959 on his site with the sx 175 only a sx 350 magnum power cabinet, its an off road toy vehicle and only mounting 1 thing will be much easier than an amp too

    Less channel kits are top notch.

    I have installed a few of his kits but I do not know about the amplifier kits.

    If they are same as his channel kits then it should be top notch

    Gig4Fun is a local that I've known for MANY years. When we both get some free time, he said he wanted me to swing by so he could show me the 148F that he got... so at some point here soon I'll be able to see first hand how Les does up these radios. Should be interesting. I can report some info then. From what I see, Les does top notch work. I know he spends a BUNCH of time designing/making his channel boards.

    ~Cheers~

    Yeah, Like Gig4Fun said... his took just shy of 6 months. I remember when he ordered it. Les is backed up real bad right now.
