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.

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.

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.

inMOTION Video

We just released a new video that covers the features and benefits of our inMOTION Motor Controller Cell.

Infinitybox inMOTION Motor Controller Cell

inMOTION is a unique module that connects to the CAN network of your 20-Circuit Kit.  It looks like a POWERCELL but acts differently.  Instead of turning 10 things on and off like a POWERCELL, it reverses the polarity to 5 things.  We originally designed inMOTION to control power windows and power lock actuators.  Instead of relying on a switch, inMOTION has special h-bridge relays that reverse the polarity.  This lets you change direction of things like power windows, power locks, linear actuators and valves.

That is just the beginning.  inMOTION is smarter than a POWERCELL which means that you can get express features on your windows with no limit switches.  You can also get wireless control through inLINK or a smart phone attached to inTOUCH NET.

Check out this video for a deeper dive into what inMOTION can do.

We have the solid model for the inMOTION cell available to our customers to help with their planning and mocking up process.  Click on this link to get more details.

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.

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.

POWERCELL

Our 20-Circuit Kit is the core to the electrical system in your car.  It is more than just a wiring harness.  It is a universal wiring system that gets you the most advanced, functional and reliable electrical control on the market.  The 20-Circuit Kit starts with our MASTERCELL, which connects to your switches.  It also includes two of our POWERCELLs, which we call the muscles of your system.  The MASTERCELL sends commands to the POWERCELLs to locally power your lights, ignition, starter solenoid, cooling fans, fuel pumps, horn and other accessories.  We’ve talked about the MASTERCELL in more detail in a recent blog post.  You can link to that here.  This post is going to cover more details about our POWERCELL.

The 20-Circuit Kit includes 2 POWERCELLs.  Each POWERCELL can control 10-outputs.  One POWERCELL is for the front of the car, the second is for the rear of the car.  The front POWERCELL is set up to control your headlights, high-beams, turn signals, front running lights, horn, cooling fan, ignition power, starter solenoid and dash power.  The rear POWERCELL is set up to control your rear running lights, turn signals, brake lights, fuel pump, back-up lights, dome lights and other accessories.

Connecting your loads to the POWERCELL is very easy.  You run the output harness from the POWERCELL to your light, fan, pump or other accessory.  You cut our universal harness to length.  You connect our output wire to the wire on your load.  That’s it.  Click on this link to get more details on connecting your POWERCELL outputs to the electrical loads in your car or truck.

You put the POWERCELLs in the car were you need them.  This lets you eliminate size and weight of the wiring harness in your car.  The installation is simpler because the runs of wire are shorter and troubleshooting is easier.

The POWERCELL is a remote fuse and solid-state relay box.  The fuses that you need to properly protect your wiring harness are built into the POWERCELL.  You do not need to add separate fuses.  Also, the solid-state relays that control your loads are built into the POWERCELL.  Each output can carry up to 25-amps continuously so you do not need to add external relays to control your lights, fans, pumps and other accessories.  Also, we don’t use mechanical relays in our POWERCELLs.  Our outputs are controlled by solid-state MOSFETs.  This are rugged and reliable and give you tons of benefits over traditional relays.  Check out this link to learn about some of the advantages of a MOSFET.

This video walks through more of the details of the Infinitybox POWERCELL.

You can easily add extra POWERCELLs to your 20-Circuit Kit if you need to expand the output capacity beyond 20.  Each additional POWERCELL gives you 10 more outputs to your Infinitybox system.  The POWERCELL kit includes the POWERCELL plus all of the harnessing required to connect to your existing 20-Circuit Kit.  You can learn more about the POWERCELL kit by clicking this link.

We have the solid model for the POWERCELL available to our customers to help with their planning and mocking up process.  Click on this link to get more details.

Fingernail for 2019 Infinitybox Introductory Video

Infinitybox Introductory Video

Infinitybox is excited to announce a new series of videos going through the details of our Infinitybox system.  We’ve shot them in a very simple and effective way to get the point across.  Jay Harris, the president of Infinitybox, will take you through every piece of our system.  He will also walk you through the process to wire your car with our Infinitybox system.

In this introductory video, Jay describes how our Infinitybox system works and how it is different from traditional wiring harnesses.  Until Infinitybox came onto the scene in 2009, little had changed in the way you wire a car since the Model T.  Our system revolutionized the way restorations, kit cars, resto-mods, street rods, hot rods, race cars and Pro-Touring cars were wired.  Instead of a single, central box of fuses and relays, the Infinitybox gives you separate modules that you put in the car where you need them.  The separate Infinitybox modules are connected with a simple and thin data cable.  You can watch the introductory video here.


This is the first video in the series.  There are more coming that go through each of our specific products.  Be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel Infinityboxllc and click on the bell icon to get notified when we post new videos.

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.
