    We did this pair of slingshots for two customers back to back. On the first one, the one that's red with black accents, we modified the factory SL speaker pods to hold a Digital Designs PA style 6.5" driver and a Digital Designs VO-b2 1.75" bullet tweeter per pod. we also built a custom speaker pod where the rearmost cup holder goes for a pair of rockford punch 6.5" coaxials. For the headunit we went with an alpine navigation unit that we built in to angle down towards the driver more for better visibility, and in addition we also retained the factory backup camera and added blindspot cameras in the front wheel wells facing rearward that are triggered with the turn signals. we also ended up doing a pair of digital designs 3000 series 10" subs to handle bass duties. The second one we built (theblack with red accent) actually is the same setup for the most part, with the exception that we built new speaker pods to hold 8" pa style drivers instead of 6.5" in the other SS, and we also did a remote start and alarm on this one.

    Very nice install. Would be interested if you ever package the turn signal camera solution for sale. That seems a great idea I would love on mine. Really like the customers Black sling as well, would love those wheels on mine.

    Good job

    The turn signal camera setup is just a universal type setup. we used the following two parts.
    Video Interface - SVS-6 (Universal Smart Video Switcher) - NAV-TV
    Cameras: Back-up & Front-view (universal) - BLIND-SPOT Camera kit - NAV-TV

    Thanks, I've never seen that universal switch, though you might have made a custom one. That is a nice touch. Appreciate the info!

    Great location for a business like this. Your customers can go next door and take out a title loan to pay for an new audio system. :D
