Finally picked up some Silverstar headlight bulbs. I absolutely love these things.

I was planning on getting that same deck but was worried about how it would look against my dash. Now that I have seen yours I think I will go buy it now. Only difference is my dash is going to be black.

Guess I'll update this a bit. I added a couple things over this past summer/year.

I added Akebono ProAct Ceramic brake pads a couple days ago. Made a huge difference.

3rd Eye Tire Pressure Monitoring System

The kit:

The display installed (the tire sensors are in the tires, thus no pics):

What steps did you do to replace the stock sub. I was told that you could onlky hold about 175 watts with the stock enclosure. Is that a 10? How many watts is it and how does it sound?

And is there any way to hear how your Gibson sounds?
