O ne of our favorite vehicles we work on is the Mercedes-Benz G-Class. We have worked on so many of them, it has become second nature to upgrade the audio system in one. Most of the time we replace the speakers & add a subwoofer package to them. We have even molded an iPad into the dash of one.
The customer brought us his beautiful G-Wagon after his "buddy" attempted to install the audio system & as the story goes, it ended up at the professionals to "clean up the mess". Like most of these botched systems, we have to remove all of the wiring, equipment & fix what his "buddy" thought he knew how to do. I guess the owner thought he could save a few dollars by paying his buddy, but in the end, he ended up paying double to have it done right (Don't be that customer). At the end of the day, he learned his lesson & was extremely happy when we delivered beyond his expectations.
As you will see in the photos below, we built a custom enclosure that replicated a shelf in the back. This way he can still have room to utilize while still having the audio system he wanted. We matched the vinyl with the factory Mercedes-Benz color and grain to provide a seamless look. Even the carpet on the top is a Mercedes carpet. The end result was perfection & we are proud to have this customer for life. Enjoy the photos below & before you let someone touch your vehicle, give us a call. :)
