    Every time I look at this thread it gets better and better! What an awesome job. This is the kind of work you might maybe see a top tier shop do for something like SEMA but it's very rarely something you see on any private vehicles short of a classic car or M-B, Rolls, top-end Caddy, etc.

    Any idea yet what the total bill is going to run you? And when will it all be done? I know the answer to that is "Never!" but at least you must have a finish date for "Phase 1?"

    So we went to work on some more of the interior last night. We are going to do more of a proper photoshoot of everything later, but I thought I would go ahead and get some pictures up of the progress today.

    Last night we...

    Wrapped and installed the new GTSpec D Shaped wheel covered by JPM to match the interior.

    • Black leather sides
    • Black Alcantara top and bottom
    • Red Alcantara stripe at 12 o'clock
    • Red stitching




    JPM wrapped the new 3 way A-Pillars in black Alcantara with black double stitching. Hertz 165XL tweeters (matched with the 6.5" woofers in sealed doors) and Tang Band W3-1364SA 3" Bamboo Cone Driver mid-range.



    Finished the dash treatment by extending the black Alcantara to the tops of the doors.



    Pictures really do not do the interior justice. Alex and Joe at JPM Coachworks have done a fantastic job. It completely changes the entire feel of the car when you sit in it. I could not be any happier at this point.

    Now we just have to get the second Sparco seat in and I need to pick up another 4 way amp and JBL MS-8 processor. We have something special in mind for that processor as well...

    So so so so so good. That interior looks amazing, looks very similar to a GT3RS with all the alcantara. Love it, great work from JPM. Any plans for a short shift kit? Dropping that shift knob would look better IMO.

    We still have to put in the passenger seat and eventually do the roof. Will it ever be done? Who knows... Thanks for the feedback. I absolutely love the work they have done.

    It already has the Kartboy short shifter and bushings installed.

    So previously, I was running a 2 way passive front stage with custom a pillars that housed a single tweeter. As you can see by the new interior upgrade, it is now a 3 way system that is going to be setup active.

    To setup a 3 way active front stage, you have to get an external processing unit and delete the passive crossovers. I decided to use the new JBL MS-8 as it has an onboard amp that can power the tweeters and mid range on the pillar while I can power the mid basses in the doors and the sub off my existing amp. The plan is to get another 4x100 full range class D (probably another Hertz HDP 4) to power the pillars, but this will work in the meantime to get everything running.



    The JBL MS-8 is a pretty impressive piece of equipment. It came down the Audison Bit One and this unit, but the ease of setup really sold me on the MS-8 along with some reviews from some fellow audio geeks. The unit comes with a LCD control display and you actually wear a set of headphones with mics on each side to setup the listening positions in the car.

    Everything is hooked up and sounds great so far. I still have a lot of tuning to do before it will be where I want it. But it fits under the seat and gets the job done. Here is a teaser of some of the fab work I am in process of completing for the LCD display. It is going to sit flush mounted to the center console where the S drive would usually be.

    Very nice. I believe Tony (rage-wrx) has the same setup with the MS-8 and OEM HU. I can't remember from your other posts, do have have plans for a sub system? Perhaps an Audio Integrations box?

    EDIT: Nevermind, I saw you did do a sub setup and AI box, did you ever post pics of that?

    That is in my build thread. It wasn't a part of this project so I didn't include it in the posts.

    Very nice. Yes, I have the MS-8 too. Can't wait to see what you did with the display. I need to do something similar with mine. For now I have disconnected it.

    I was thinking the exact same thing. Carbon fiber is the new chrome , very tacky.

    But the finished product gets an A+. Very nice.
