Anyone going to be doing an audio project this year ?!??!?

I have tons and tons of wiring/parts/amps/speakers/etc up in my attic with the car parts that I need to sell off so I can clean out the space for storage. My wife just put a mountain of stuff in rubbermaid containers and apparently that's where everything is going. Just curious if anyone is doing any builds this spring or if I should just Ebay all this stuff ?

I'm also going to be putting a system into the E30 M3 in the spring, so the extra funding would come in handy too............ as I'm going to need to make a trip to the Fibreglass Factory for supplies.

Anyways, if anyone needs anything, or just help even with design/layout ideas, I'd be more then happy to help out if I can fit it into my schedule. I've been into this stuff for almost 20 years now (on and off) and built countless systems/installs for friends as well as doing some judging on the IASCA Car Audio circuit. That's not to say that I know everything but I have some tricks in the bag !! Also more then happy to teach you how to do it yourself .............. that way you'll know how to fix it if it dies. Building a system isn't as hard as one thinks, assuming you keep it pretty simple.


Cheers

Hey! I'm planning to do some stuff for my car - e46 M3 cabrio - not entirely audio: OEM nav + bluetooth retrofit and skipass sub upgrade; if I can get decent speaker upgrades (from my HK system) for $400 or less I'll do that too...can you help on any or all of the above?

PM replied! Any suggestions for front only/all speakers + amp applications and pricing? Do you have an inventory list?

Fayraree........ I'll PM you back.

T.Dot E30......... it's a secret !!! Once I start, I'll post a detailed thread about the install. It's won't be crazy painted fibreglassing everywhere but it will be tasteful with a period theme to match the car.............. I think. That's the plan.
