Winning the picture contest was a real surprise. Now what to do with the $50 credit?? May order another Kangaroo pouch for the driver's side and a Solstice key fob. Really do not need anything else they are offering.
Sorry about the install. With my job at General Motors Isuzu Commercial Truck, and GM moving to have International build their medium duty trucks for Chevy and GMC--we are up to our necks reorganizing to just handle Isuzu trucks.
With all this going on I simply do not have the time and patience to do the install myself. Think I have the right installer lined up now and as stated--was only waiting on the adapter in order to bring the car to them. Purchased a bulk pack of Dynamat Extreme to have the full interior covered before the stereo install. Should tighten things up, and less vibration/noise--yes it is a convertible but it still will benefit from this application.
8" JL Audio sub just showed up as well as the Alpine 4" speakers for the rear. Was convinced not to install the rears but both installers I spoke to said for the little money the speakers go for, I should have them installed. They will be driven by the head unit, but the front separates--MB Quarts will be driven by the Alpine 4 channel amp as well as the 8" sub.
Looking forward to having all this installed and notching up the sound a good bit. With the top down all the time, I am tired of not being able to read anything on the face of the factory head unit--have high hopes the AVIC will be a lot more visible in direct sunlight.
Keep us posted as to how things turn out. Will post my install details once things move forward. Going to have the installer take photos along the way.
