Default Project 2003 PT Done- New Motor, New Wheels, Double Din

Our project 2003 PT Cruiser shop truck is back on the road.

I started with a bad motor, dented driver door 2003 Cruiser we found on EBAY for 900.00.

Here is link to motor install and start of project.
Getting this 2003 back on the road. Time for some overhaulin!

We put in the new motor with 51k on it and it now runs perfect!

Next step was install of a new door I found in a bone yard in Idaho for 350.00 shipped- same matching color.

I still need to put on the new fender I painted for it but for now this one on it is ok. I just had not had time to get it installed.

NExt step was to clean it up and throw on some new wheels.

Then of course we had to convert it to double din. I tossed in a KEnwood DDX 419 for now untill my next Kenwood shipment comes in then we will install the 6990 with Garmin NAV.

Overall project has us at 3200.00 into this Cruiser with new motor, wheels, brakes, door, fender, complete new stereo with Diamond Audio speakers, Kenwood amp and Pioneer sub box in back. Sounds great.

My daughter loves her new shop truck to drive to and from work

Here is a pic of finished look and a couple of the new double din upgrade

Why do you refer to it as a shop truck

A shop truck is something you use for your own business or something like that.

But then again a shop truck wouldnt have the stereo/sub setup

Is it a shop truck or your daughters vehicle? I am confused.

This is a shop car/truck for my daughter to drive to and from work for our business. She handles all our packing and shipping and needed something to easily haul packages to and from post office and fedex.
Our business we customize cars to double din and custom audio installs. So we have stereo systems in all our vehicles and company vehicles.

Install
Kenwood DDX 419 ( replacing with a DNX 6990 when we get more next week)
Kenwood x700.5 5 channel mini amp under driver seat
Pioneer Sub box
Diamond Audio 6.5" components in front
Diamond Audio 5.25 coax in rear
