Ok the stereo sounds good for the first five minutes, but then it gets fuzzy – I’m drawing more power than the car can provide, and it’s getting distorted. It’s a new fancy high-power alternator so somewhere between the alternator and the battery the power is getting throttled back. I probably have some old hunk of shit wire connecting the alternator to the battery; i need to replace that with something newer, and also swap the battery to ground (and all the wires to my amp). Aaarrgggh!
The car is probably going in for more service next week, at which point it’ll be ready for photographs.
