Well, I've finally managed the time to tear my carpet out and dye the thing black! I'll be picking up salt, a tub, rit dye, and a steam cleaner tonight --- thought i'd let you all in on it first.

I'll be doing it similar to the way driftlineteg did his... except outside, away from the house. lol. I don't want my house black and my parents yelling at me.

So here's the progress so far!

(stripped my interior, gonna roll to the drags in a few days a few pounds lighter lol...)

Nice! ... Good luck with it all man, I'd never have the patience to strip my whole interior like that.

... Can't wait to see the finished product.

I'm on my way to pick up the rit dye (5 bottles on hold at wal mart now...), tub, salt, and steam cleaner.

I'm also thinking i'll dye my floormats, anyone have experience with this?

I took pics of the cleaning process without the memory card on my friends camera.... wtf.... I don't have the cable, so I can't get them! I'll take more pictures soon.

I'm taking back the POS shampoo machine because it didn't steam anything, probably broken.

Please tell me you dont have your power, RCA, and amp turn on wire all on the same side of the car..

Other than that though, nice job! Never knew what it looked like under there..

^^ it really doesn't make a big difference, when I had a sub I just cranked the bass with the rap... That was one of my concerns when wiring it, but I didn't feel like going to the other side. 'Twas a quick job. I'll be securing everything in before the carpet goes back, of course.

Yeah I have mine setup for rap/obnoxious bass too lol. It looks like you have a lot of slack though, so maybe you can just move the RCA cable so it runs down the middle (intstead of the other side) then before you put the carpet back on..just a thought.

tape down the power 6 inches away from the signal wires, any cross points ahould be at 90degrees. it will make a difference if you have your system setup properly

I'll do all the wires differently, and tape them down... any recommendations on tape?

I'm calling another wal mart now to see if they have any more rit dye cause i bought out the nearest store already... 5 bottles....

Well, the mixing process is going well.... waiting for my friend to pick up a few more bottles of dye... Cleaned the carpet as well as I could, so its pretty decent now... I've got our barbecue out by the water tower next to my house, heating up pots of water and mixing them with salt and dye in the big tub.

HAHA probably looks like a meth lab from the road!
