nice,

I like the custom radiator shroud and the ground mods.
how much does it cost for the ground? I'm thinking of diy if it comes out cheaper than the one from paranoid fab.

I got 8gauge power line from a local audio shop, a little pricey ~$40US ($2/LF) got 20 ft for those math-a-magicians out there. It is a lot more flexible than what was avail at Lowes/HD. The gold plated ends was ~$10US for the pack.

Not a bad mod for $50

Noticed the best improvement through the component speakers, no more humming at loud volumes.

Your wagon looks clean and tastefull. I like your DIY radiator shroud - make me one!?

How hard was it to get the fender braces installed? Was it just a matter of pulling the fender lining back?
