Inside the cabin, Rafael went wild with fiberglass and animal hides. Providing a luxurious feel, Fineline Interiors, in Bell, California, wrapped the dash, seats, headliner, and even floor in blue two-tone ostrich and elephant leather. To make jaws drop at first glance, a 22-inch plasma was fiberglassed into the dash, as was a center stack that is home to three 7-inch LCD screens. J&B Auto Designs handled the fiberglass work, and they also created a fiberglass center console that features the Alpine DVD head unit, airbag controller, and serves as the mounting location for the window switches. The console is connected to the rear cabin by a massive fiberglass bridge.
Removing the rear seats allowed room for a titanic-sized enclosure that houses two Diamond Audio amps, two JL Audio 13W7 subs, and a set of Diamond Audio component speakers. Working in conjunction with the center enclosure, the rear fiberglass sub box is stuffed with two huge 1000/1 JL Audio amps, one more JL Audio 13W7, and four Kinetik 2400 power cells (two of which are inside the box and not visible). Flanking the sub box are two 22-inch Insignia plasma TVs, with one more facing the rear for good measure. Both front and rear door panels were fiberglassed and fitted with Diamond Audio components and 7-inch LCD monitors. With the screens playing a movie and speakers blasting, Rafael's ride is more like an IMAX theatre than an SUV.
Powering all of those electronics required a ton of juice and Chuy's Auto Electric installed a dual 300-amp chrome alternator setup complete with a heavy-duty rectifier box. With the four Kinetik batteries, dual alternators, and 120V hookup, Rafael can keep the party going all night. East Lake Designs took care of the wiring. Other mods to the engine include a K&N cold-air intake, Magnaflow exhaust, and several painted pieces to add style points.
Rafael was eager to thank his friends and fellow Xplicit car club members for their help and support, and he especially wanted to thank MIC, Danny D, Speed Tech Auto Body, Kinetik, and K&N.
