Installer Challenge

Back in 2003 our very own Anthony Hart took part in the UK installer Challenge, which is a head on head challenge, where the most skilled car audio engineers battle it out, to see who can create the best Install in 48 Hours. Two teams of 5 installers work on two cars that are kept secret until the day of the event. Ant and the rest of his team didn't sleep for the full 48 hour only take a few minutes here and there to eat, use the toilet and take a shower.

After Winning the UK Installer challenge they took it across the pond to compete against the Americans.

The second competition took place at Spring Break Nationals, Daytona Beach. After another 48 hours of intense work the team had finished all that was left to do was enter the cars in the car show and see who won. And of course the English came out on top beating the Americans by winning best install.
