Default Former Daily Driver to Show Worthy Project

Okay here is the build log of the car project that started 4 years ago. Multiple local hack body shops have screwed me but thats almost all fixed now. The main project is the audio project. Earlier this year my wife bought us an additional SUV so that i can FINALLY pull the scion off the street as a daily driver. She started off as a 2007 Scion Tc Release Series 3.0.

I wont go into all the mods as this is an audio forum. I bought a Ultima yellow top battery of course, with a Tsunami 0 gauge multi amp kit. i proceeded to gut the car recently as you can see.

This is the layer of Dynamat i put on the skin 3 years ago.

The floor has started to be prepped for the Stinger Carpet Pad

Here is the passenger side with FatMat installed

Wire anchors are being installed under the fatmat as the factory wire guides are to thick to allow the carpet pad to fit.

I purchased a few goodies for the new install.

I will be finishing the FatMat installation slowly as the factory wiring is kind of a pain to move around and resecure. The seat belts need to come out and of course go back in. That part will probably take me a few weeks.
I combined several posts so I can make a cohesive single post.
have not had much time lately, but snuck in an hour to cover the trans hump
