OCTOBER 2019 THE SHOP 77 N ick Paulson of Audio Garage in Fargo, North Dakota recently had a client who wanted to bring his 2018 Factory Five Mk4 427 Cobra replica up-to-date with today's amenities. "The client had seen us at the Top- pers Custom Car Club over the past few years and decided it was time to add an audio system and custom lighting to his kit car," Paulson recalls. "After inspecting the vehicle and talking with the client about how he likes to listen to his music, we designed a unique audio system solu- tion that would look the way he wanted and deliver amazing sound. The client also wanted two zones of RGB lighting installed for use at car shows and cruises, and asked if we could reupholster the dash while we had the car apart. Of course, we were happy to help." The audio project started with a plan to install a Rockford Fosgate PMX-8 digital media receiver in the vehicle. "We chose this solution because it includes Bluetooth audio streaming and USB playback and offers a rear-vision camera input," Paulson explains. "We used our CNC router to cut a piece of 3/4-inch clear acrylic plastic to form a mount for the PMX-8DH display head. The thin design meant that we could add a hinge to the top edge of the mounting panel that would allow the client to swing the unit up and out of the way when the car was on display." The 5-inch screen on the display head not only shows radio information, but serves as a display for a dedicated back-up camera, because "with a five-point racing harness holding the driver in place, it can be very difficult to turn around to see what's behind the vehicle." One of the items the customer takes advantage of daily is the Scosche WDQ2M Qi-compatible wireless charging bracket that is mounted to the underside of the dash. The unit allows any wireless charging- compliant smartphone to be topped off while driving, and users can listen to music on the Rockford media receiver for the entire ride without power concerns.
