Paint is done! Finally!

Paint is called Super Black and it has a matte finish clear coat on top. Car looks amazing. Big time head turner. Every time i take it for a ride someone asks me about it. No one can believe i got this car for $2800 and i only have $2200 invested ($5000 total) to get it where it is right now.

I found some great wheels. They are FESLER DESIGNS – FS903 wheels. I love them in black. The mercury they are on is sexy as hell. Next time i paint the Mark III im shaving the doors, losing most of the trim and going all black. I love that look. The only problem with the fesler wheels is that they are apx $1000 per wheel. This wiremunky cant swing that right now :). Hopefully i can find a set of knock off wheels for 1/4 of the price.

JL Audio Fathom Subwoofer X 4!

I am in Phoenix doing some upgrades. I got a pic of one of the 4 fathoms that are installed in our clients family room. These subs are beautiful and sound incredible. We have Focal surround speakers and Ariel LCR speakers that the client already owned. Sim2 C3X and a 63″ Pioneer plasma. For control we have a Crestron TPMC-8X, Crestron e-control Xpanel on his and her laptops a URC MX-900 and now we have an iPad. I think they are covered on the control front :). There are 10 Crestron wi-fi touchpanels here plus the iPad. All of them can roam using 2 Ruckus access points that share the same SSID.

I would love to stick 2 of these fathoms in the trunk of my Lincoln :). The iPad was sitting on top of it so i kept it in the pic with the Crestron Mobile app running our GUI.

Universal Remote MX-980 & MRF-260 Installation

Finally got back to a project where i used 4 MX-980’s and 4 MRF-260’s. The project was mentioned in a July Newsletter from URC. Client called about his printer not working so i decided to take a couple of pics while i was there. This is the kitchen TV. The Chicago lake front is outside of those windows on the right so it was difficult to get a good pic.

We have zektor baluns routing audio and video to 3 of the TV’s and we are using a Digital Logger ethernet (controlled) power switch so that we can remotely power cycle the cable boxes, modem, router and access points.

Today’s service call was solved by canceling print jobs that were stuck for some reason. I installed logmein on the clients new computer so that i could remotely correct things like that in the future.
