    bang Crap install

    I don't know why people post install pics like this and act proud of their work. This install is total crap.

    From Reddit.

    Unfortunately, I think this "installer" is a Canadian. I notice the speedometer is in kph, not mph.

    We drive on the right side of the road. You weirdos are the ones who drive on the left side.

    Well at least he's got 'strain-relief' on the mic cord...

    Or maybe that's a new-fangled vibration dampening device?

    Post it on RetardReference and you'll no doubt see replies like "Looks good, the Kenwood fits perfect in the dash!".

    Atleast he has APRS so when it catches fire, he can tell the fire depot where his POS is

    I'd be embarrassed to post a photo of such a crappy install.

    Damn what a dumbass, there's more than enough place for a nice clean install.

    I spend weeks measuring and planning before I install **** in my car. I want it to be safe, functional and of high quality.

    Is this a lack of self pride in doing a good job, or just laziness?

    It usually takes me a year or so to plan the 9 or 10 radio install for my vehicles. So far, I've been driving my current vehicle for 7 months and have the batteries and battery runs done, the antennas mapped but not installed, and the console design roughed up on the bench, but not the finished plastic work yet. The second row DVD system was a stumbling block when I pulled the headliner....

    It's not a project, it's a program. As soon as I get one built, I start thinking about what I want to do differently next time. My install takes lots of planning as well - dual batteries, 6 O5s (soon to be some O7s), etc.
