Wow, I hope to never see my GA in that kinda shape. That is just aweful. I've seen a lot of amauter installs that just didn't look safe but thats just plain idiotic!!!
If your counting pennies and dimes then maybe you shouldn't be spending every penny and dime you have!!

I hope my car dosen't turn out like that.  I installed my amp, capacitor, sub, and processor by myself without really knowing what i was doing.  Everything is going good so far but its only been about a month.  Power line is fused about 8 inches from the battery terminal.  Any amature mistakes i should check for before anything goes wrong? Thanks.

You can probably take it to a local shop and see if they can do a once over on it just to check it out.
