A baseball bat would have been cheaper and prolly more efficient. :D

Seriously, if they've done zip, you are the car owner, how come you need a lawyer to go get what's yours?

Finally I got Sallys Mach 1 back.  I hired a pissed off attorney, tow truck, 3 big guys (Gweedo's ;-) and demanded it back through the Sheriff.  I gave the date and time we would be there and it was setting out by the road when I got there. The damn pussys didnt even come out to meet us, HuH. Was 7.5 months of bulls%%T and wasted time. 

Im out 5k because they didnt do there work. I will let the attorney handle that part of there crap. I got a picture (one side) of the strip and epoxy primer before I payed, guess what they did? They stripped and epoxy primed one half the car and thats the pictured I received. 

David......  I Took your approach and decided if need be? I would beat the living crap out of them :-) 

These scammers are really good and operate in Nampa Idaho. Be more than happy to share there names. Wish I had social media to hammer them some. They dont have a web site or I would do it there.

My car came with factory 8 Track, but the player was DOA. I wanted to keep the look, but integrate Bluetooth. So I bought a board on eBay that can easily power the 4 speakers. I hogged out the guts of the 8 track and installed the board. Now I have my 8 Track look (complete with Pink Floyd DSOM ;) Best album from 1973.), but Bluetooth enabled stereo. Here's some photos of my install, and a short video. The phone can't handle the bass, but it sounds very clean and loud with NO AMP. This board is the only thing providing the sound.

I screwed around making a transmission cooler line standoff / clamp.  I have an aluminum radiator and wanted something more secure to hold the lines. 

 

 

I like that! Those lines aren't very secure at all without something like that.

Music is through the phone. I have Android, but this would work with Apple too.

What a great idea!  I only have the factory AM radio but may go this route as well.

Nice. The Ebay page states that it can work with 12V, but recommends another voltage. Did you have to address this on your application, or just running the factory supplied voltage? Thx.

OMG 😱 this is so badass that a simple “like” isn’t enough. I bought my weeks ago with a Kenwood deck from like 2002 ish, has aux cord input, but no Bluetooth.  I wish it still had the original radio with 8 track so I could copy you. I think I’ll buy one, non-working, to give it that nostalgic look. What make/model Bluetooth radio did you buy?

Lesson learned: check fuses first. If replacement fuse blows, use a piece of copper wire .

Thanks for the compliments. Here's the link? What part of AZ are you in?

Went to the machine shop to drop off the final bits and pieces, came home with three pages of bad news. Good news is that it came in at budget, and we should be making noise in a day or two.

So to be nosey - what's the bad news?

I think he is saying the bill for the build is three pages long.😳

Yep, but came in at only a bit over expected budget. Hopefully tomorrow I get the call that he's ready to run it.
