The Car Kit was a 1983 300TD Mercedes Benz Wagon, running on Bio-diesel. It was altered to be a self sufficient recording studio. It was equipped with a 400 Watt AC/DC inverter, a 400 Watt amplifier, multiple speakers, a four channel PA system hardwired into two car batteries with a voltage meter. Also housed in the car is an array of microphones and hydrophones to collect environmental sounds, multiple instruments, pedals, mixers, amplifiers, a laptop, an eight channel PreSonus Firepod, and a drum kit built for the roof rack of the vehicle. Its purpose was to provide the ability to play, create and record sounds, music, and noise in remote locations. It was wrecked in 2011.
