1969 Chevelle Wired with Infinitybox

Here’s another great customer car wired with our Infinitybox system.  Matthew W sent us these pictures of his finished 1969 Chevelle.  He’s had this 1969 Chevelle a long time.  This is the first car that he ever got to change a tire on.

He has a 383 stroker engine in it with Aluminum heads.  It is fed through an Edelbrock dual quad carb set up.  He has an MSD ignition box giving it spark.  He has the Vintage Air Front Runner system with their Gen-IV system.

He wired the car with our Infinitybox 20-Circuit Kit.  He added inLINK for security features.  He also add inRESERVE to manage his trunk-mounted battery.

You can see this picture of his rear POWERCELL and the inRESERVE solenoid protecting his battery.  The rear POWERCELL is mounted conveniently in the rear, right corner of the car.  This is very accessible if he needs to change a blown fuse, the runs of wire are short and it can be hidden neatly behind the custom trim piece that he made.

 

Congratulations to Matthew for finishing his car.  It is spectacular and we are proud to be a part of his build.

1969 Corvette Restomod

We’re still trying to catch our breath from the 2020 Autorama in Detroit.  There was so many great cars there and a lot of them wired with our Infinitybox system.  The team from Dynamic Corvettes in Saginaw, Michigan was there and this Corvette really stood out.  The judges at the Autorama awarded it First Place.  It is a 1969 Corvette Restomod built for a local customer in Michigan.  He gave the car to Steve Snow and his team with the instructions to “Build me a bad ass car”.  We’d say that Dynamic Corvettes accomplished this mission.

The wired this car with our 20-Circuit Kit.  They added inMOTION to control their power windows and power locks.  They also added inTOUCH NET so they can control the entire car from a smart phone or a touch screen mounted in the dash.  Lastly, they added inVIRONMENT to control their Vintage Air Gen-IV from the smart phone or touch screen.   The finished wiring system was simple to install but gives the owner all the electrical control he wants.

The Dynamic Corvettes team shot this video showing off the details of this 1969 Corvette Restomod.  Check it out here.  You can see all of the lighting and other details that they built into this car.

You can see all of the details of the build at the Dynamic Corvettes website by clicking this link.  There are more pictures and a deeper description of the project.  We think that Steve and his team certainly built the bad-ass car that the customer requested.

We are very proud to be a part of this build.  It is a beautiful piece of automotive art.  We thank Steve Snow and his whole team for letting us use the pictures and videos of this 1969 Corvette Restomod.  You can get to their website at www.dynamiccorvettes.com to see other examples of their restorations and custom fiberglass parts for Corvettes.

1955 Chevy Bel Air- Great 8 Winner

Our Infinitybox team is thrilled to be a part of Bob Matranga’s 1955 Chevy Bel Air.  This car was awarded as one of the Great 8 winners for the 2020 Ridler Award at the Detroit Autorama.  The car is appropriately named Brute Force.

Bob and his team built a stunning 1955 Chevy Bel Air.  You could spend hours looking at all of the details in this car.  From the engine, to the chassis, to the one-off lights, to the leather treatment to the emblems, this is an impressive car.

One of our favorite details are the three dimensional marker and tail lights.  Chris Brown conceived and built these lights.  The effect of the floating bars is just too cool.

You can see an interview with Bob going through the details of the car here.  Thanks to EClassic Autos for the video content.

1955 Chevy Bel Air: Great 8 Winner at 2020 Detroit Autorama from eclassicautos on Vimeo.

Bob’s team started with our Infinitybox 20-Circuit Kit to wire the car.  From there, they added inMOTION to control their power locks and power windows.  They added inLINK for remote control from a key fob.  inRESERVE for active battery management.  inTOUCH NET so they can control the car from a tablet or smart phone.  And inVIRONMENT so they can control their Vintage Air Gen-IV from their touch screen.  They have the cells strategically located in the car to optimize the wiring harness and get them the most features.

We had a chance to talk to Chris Brown of Brown Auto Design at the Autorama.  Chris is the mastermind behind the design of this car.  He mentioned to us that he had very limited room to run wires in the car.  Using the Infinitybox system made wiring the car much easier for him and his team.

We are very proud to be a part of this project.  Congratulations to Bob and the entire team at Matranga Hot Rods for making it to the Great 8.

1955 Cadillac DeVille- Great 8 Winner

Congratulations to Frank Hinmon for being a Great 8 Winner at the 2020 Detroit Autorama.  Frank and his team have put a ton of effort into this car to make it the best and it shows.  In addition to making it to the Great 8 at the Detroit Autorama, his car was one of the Select Six at the Chicago World of Wheels.

The car is an engineering masterpiece.  It is full of detail.  They started with a 2-door and re-engineered it to make it a 4-door.  From there, the paint, the interior, the engine, the chassis are all integrated seamlessly to create this Great 8 Winner.  Check out this video to see the full details.

1955 Cadillac Deville: Great 8 Winner at Detroit Autorama from eclassicautos on Vimeo.

Thanks to EClassic Autos for the great video coverage at the show.

Frank wired the car with a complete Infinitybox system including our 20-Circuit Kit, 2 inMOTION cells, inTOUCH NET, inRESERVE and inVIRONMENT.

Beyond all of the body modifications and mechanical details in the car, this is a complicated car, electrically.  Using the Infinitybox system made creating a complicated wiring system very easy.  The car was wired with off-the shelf components from Infinitybox and configured through software to do what Frank wanted it to do.  The distributed architecture of the Infinitybox system made the runs of wire short and kept the bulk of the harness to a minimum.

Frank has inTOUCH NET as part of this system so he can control the entire car from his iPad tablet or a touch screen head unit mounted in the dash.  His windows can be controlled from the iPad so can the door poppers.  This also includes using our inMOTION motor controller cell to raise the hood and the trunk by pushing a button on his tablet.

We also customized the system to manage his fuel tank controller.  Frank has two different fuel tanks: one for pump gas and one for racing gas.  He has a special valve that flips between these two different tanks and their fuel pumps.  By using outputs from one of his inMOTION cells, we control the actuator that flips the valves between these two tanks.

The power, flexibility and versatility of the Infinitybox system gave Frank the control he needed to wire this winning car.  The entire Infinitybox team is proud to be a part of this project.  Congratulations again to Frank for an award well deserved.

Dementor Camaro

Dementor Camaro at Detroit Autorama

Premier Motorworkz Logo

We had a chance to wander thorough the 2020 Autorama at Cobo Hall in Detroit.  It was full of some amazing automotive engineering.  One of the best cars there was built by Chris Walker and his team at Premier Motorworkz in Louisville, KY.   They built this exceptional 1968 Camaro called Dementor.

The engine is a 6.2 liter LSA paired with a 6-speed automatic.  The exhaust is a piped through a Varex Variable Exhaust system.  The interior is spectacular and was done by Sewn Tight Custom Interiors.  The car is a slick silver with flake and a ton of pearl, all from House of Kolor.  It absolutely pops in the sunlight.

Chris wired the car with our 20-Circuit Kit, inMOTION, inRESERVE, inTOUCH NET and inVIRONMENT.

Chris mounted the front POWERCELL next to the driver’s core support under the hood.  This makes all of the wires going to the front of the car short and simple to run.  The rear POWERCELL and inMOTION are in the trunk.  The MASTERCELL is behind the dash, just forward of the head unit.

They are controlling the car primarily from the customer’s phone using inTOUCH NET.  They also have a head unit in the dash that gives them complete control of the car from the touch screen.  This includes controlling all of the functions of their Vintage Air Gen-IV with our inVIRONMENT module.

We worked with Chris and his team to customize the code on his Infinitybox system.  We’re controlling the headlight covers from inMOTION when he turns the headlights on and off.   We also customized his system to control the motors for this exhaust system so he has manual control.  We also tuned the way his interior and accent lights work.

Recently, ScottyDTV did an interview with Chris covering the car at the 2020 Street Rod Nationals in Louisville, KY.  You can see the video of the car below.

Congratulations to Chris and his team for building an exceptional car.  We’re proud to be a part of this car.  You can learn more about Premier Motorworkz by visiting their website at www.premiermotorworkz.com or calling them at (502) 749-2324.

1970 Mustang Wired with the Infinitybox System

1970 Mustang Infinitybox Wiring

Here’s another great example of a customer car wired with our Infinitybox system.  Paul L. wired this beautiful 1970 Mustang with our 20-Circuit Kit, inLINK and inMOTION.  Paul just sent us pictures showing off the finished car and how he installed his Infinitybox system.

This picture shows the center console of his car.  You can see the MASTERCELL and the inMOTION cell located in the frame of the center console.  The MASTERCELL connects to all of his switches.  The inMOTION cell controls the motion of his power windows and door locks.

He relocated the battery to the trunk of the car.  He used this space for his ignition system and his front POWERCELL.  This POWERCELL location is great because it makes most of his front wiring short and easy to install.  His headlights, high-beams, turn signals, running lights, starter solenoid, ignition power, cooling fan and horn are all powered from this location.

Front POWERCELL mounted in 1970 Mustang.

His rear POWERCELL is located in the trunk.  This makes wiring his brake lights, turn signals, rear running lights, fuel pump, trunk popper and other accessories very easy.

We did some simple customization of this code to get him extra features.  He’s controlling his door locks from outputs on inMOTION.  His doors lock and unlock when he enables and disables security from his inLINK key fob.  He is also using a POWERCELL output to operate a solenoid to pop his trunk.  We programmed a button on his inLINK key fob to pop the trunk.  He also wanted an output on his rear POWERCELL to turn on with ignition.  These are all very simple changes to our system.

The finished wiring is simple and elegant.  We thank Paul L. for sending these pictures.  We’re proud to be a part of his project.

BMW E9 built by John Ward of Bespoke Fuel Design.

Custom BMW E9

Here is another great example of what our customers can do.  This car is stunning and we can honestly say that we’ve never seen another like it.  John Ward of Fuel Bespoke Design in Australia just had a great article published in Silodrome magazine.  The article covers the details of his stunning restoration of a 1970 BMW 2800CS lovingly named “Von Trapp”.  The article covers the car in detail and the pictures are awesome.  Andrew Jones shot the pictures and we heartily thank him for their use in this blog post.

Chevy S10 Show Truck wired with the Infinitybox System

Chevy S10 Show Truck

We occasionally get customers dropping by our office to show off their projects.  Chris C. brought his Chevy S10 show truck by the Infinitybox HQ to show us what he did and to get a few quick code changes.  He and his girlfriend were on their way to a truck show near Indianapolis.

Chris really loves this truck.  It is the first car that he ever owned.  He had done some modifications to it but it was totalled in an accident.  He started over from scratch and it has become something pretty cool.

First, he dropped in a bored-over Chevy 350.  It has a great rumble to it.  Then, he channeled and bagged it.  With the air dumped, it sits on its frame rails.  Then, there are the little details.  The doors and tail gate are shaved.  The interior, bed and engine compartment are done up with accent LED’s.  Lastly, he has a simple 150 hp of Nitrous to keep things interesting.

He chose to yank out the original OEM wiring and start over from scratch with our Infinitybox System.  He started with our 20-Circuit Kit, added inMOTION for the windows and lastly upgraded to inTOUCH NET to control the truck from phone.

inTOUCH NET really makes this truck.  His phone is the key to the truck.  He uses it to disable security, pop the doors, control the lights and the windows.  He can push a button to dump the air solenoid to drop the truck to the ground.  Also, we modified his code to automatically roll up the windows when he enables security.  It will be a hit at the show this weekend.

He proudly shows off the wiring in the truck.  His front POWERCELL is mounted right on the firewall.  The Infinitybox system is designed to handle the roughest environments so this location is fine.  This also makes wiring the front of the car very easy.  All of his runs of wire are very short.

Peter wired the car with our Infinitybox 20-Circuit Core Kit.  Our engineering team customized his system to accommodate some of his unique requirements for the Australian market.  He also added inLINK for security, immobilizer and other remote features.

Peter mounted the MASTERCELL and the front POWERCELL in the footwell on the left-side of the car.  Since this is a right-hand drive car, this is the passenger side.  His front POWERCELL is powering the ECU, the starter solenoid, the headlights, high-beams, front turn-signals, front parking lights, cooling fan, horn and dash.

This picture shows the locations of the MASTERCELL and front POWERCELL.

Illegal Garage’s Alumacobra Switch Install

We just received a great video from a local customer building a Factory Five Roadster.  Jose G. has been building this car for a few years and he’s wiring it with our Infinitybox system.  He is installing our 20-Circuit Kit with inLINKThis link will take you to an earlier blog post covering his progress.

He has a very slick and elegant aluminum dash that has modular panels.  He can easily remove and install panels for his switches and gauges.  It would certainly make working on the dash very easy.  Jose was recently at the London Cobra show in Ohio and saw a new set of switches he wanted to integrate into his dash.  These are nice looking billet buttons and he wants to use them for his lights, fans, wipers, fuel pump and one-button start.  These buttons are from Billet Automotive Buttons in Australia.  Installing these buttons shows the simplicity and the ease of wiring your car with our Infinitybox system.

First, our MASTERCELL inputs are ground triggered.  This gives you a lot of flexibility of how you can wire your switches.  This simple diagram shows how you wire a MASTERCELL input to your switch.

MASTERCELL Input

Simple Switch Diagram

You can click on this link to get a more detailed blog post talking about wiring switches.

Another significant advantage of wiring your switches with our Infinitybox system is the fact that it takes very little current to turn on an input.  It takes less than 1 milliamp (1/1000 of an amp) to trigger an input.  That gives you the flexibility of using any switch to control the functions in your car.  With a lot of billet buttons, you have to use them to trigger a relay because they cannot handle the full load current of things like lights, starter solenoids and fans.  This is very easy with our Infinitybox system.

Since it takes so little current to turn on a MASTERCELL input, you can use very light-gauge wires between your switches and the MASTERCELL.  Our standard harnesses use 22-AWG wire.  This helps keep behind your dash clean and easy to service.

Lastly, we give you the power of advanced electrical control functions.  In the case of Jose’s car, he’s using our One-Button Start feature.  A single MASTERCELL input connected to a momentary button lets him start his car with ease.  Check out this blog post for more details on our One-Button-Start feature.

Jose just posted a great video to his YouTube channel, The Illegal Garage, showing off how he installed these billed buttons into his Cobra.  You can check it out below.
