Where the West Begins.
The more detail of the install, the better. (If you’re of a mind to do so)

Looks VERY sharp.

What’s the model year & drivetrain? Alternator amps originally, and now? Replace the entire primary electrical system? Ignition RFI cures?

One can search almost in vain for the detail of radio install on par with some car restoration threads.

Whatever you’d like to say will have plenty of readers.

Why (then) THIS . . . and not something more ordinary?

(Ignore me if that’s the feeling about the questions asked).

Wow that amp looks big, how many pills and how much PEP? What kind of electrical upgrades are necessary? Two hot or bounce back?

Need more input. Haha! Looks great!
Its a 12 pill box, pep about 2800, running 320a alternator now, have a 400a on its way. Antennas are bounceback setup. Have a 16 pill on order, gonna run that instead

How did I miss thread??? Groundwire...any updates??
Shure. Went a completely different route. Here it is almost done. Waiting for the radio console to come in. Put the three 400a alternators in, Switched out 16pill and 2pill with a 32 and a 6. Replaced the single line section on the 6pill driver with a dual section. New dual line on the 32pill as well. Replaced the volt meter with another bird for reflect, and put in lmr600uf jumper. Tossed the predator 10k antennas and put on r55's.

Wholly moly!! That’s some big stuff!!

I like everything about it! A well planned system. An overload of the senses.

That on/off plate for the different amps is dope. What kind of switches are they? I mean to handle the power that’s going through them. I want to do something like that because you can only fit an amp so big under the seat.

Sure putting some fire in the wire, looks nice! You'll find yourself seldom getting walked on that's for sure!

Are you talking about the switches on the meters or the remote under the radio?
