    Just a little build log of what I have done so far, with crappy cell phone pictures.
    The Truck

    Making holes to run the wire.

    Installed grommets for two runs of 1/0, one positive and one negative.

    Mocked up false floor.

    Wrapped up and wired up distro blocks.

    Wired up the stereo

    Wired up and mounted the amp.

    finished as it sits now.

    Still have some ideas to remount the amp/amps.
    When it gets warmer out Ill be laying down some fiberglass for kickpods and working on mounting tweeters somewhere.

    Nilyrawtwm reacted to gprestonmoto in The Slowest Lp Build Ever   
    Hey guys, so I retired from the Air Force in December 2012 and have been working on the most budget oriented build in history lol. I like to barter and buy/sell a lot of old school goodies. That way I don't dip into any of our funds (especially since my first is on the way on December 11), and it makes it quite the challenge. My grandfather passed in 2004, and he was a HUGE Cadillac fan. Well when I got out of the service in December, the 88 Eldorado became mine. I'm currently going through a legal mess so the Cadillac is staying at my grandmother's house for a few more months. So I spent around 6 months planning the build and I'm still not 100% on a few things, but I've been working on the things I can nail down. Pics to follow.
    Here's the patient.

    So I plan on running EJS Audio Full Size Horns under the dash, and 8" midbass woofers in the doors for the front stage. At the moment, I'm either going to run a pair of Acoustic Elegance IB15AU's vented into the rear deck running Infinite Baffle, or a Single DSS Ethos 15" ported at 22Hz. This kind of depends on my ability to get ahold of a Linear 8002SW or other LP sub amp. If I can't, I'll find something to power the Ethos.
    I traded and sold a bunch of my older audio stuff about 5 times and finally got ahold of the amplifier to power my midbass drivers. Then I repeated the process to get her repaired and modified. When I have all of the amplifiers for the build, I will have the heatsinks powdered and refinished to match, and I will be making new bottom plates. One of my close friends will actually be airbrushing the end of the amplifiers with my own "twist" on the LP logo with a few customizations. Should be pretty awesome when it's all done.
    Here's the midbass amp after it was repaired and modified.

    The capacitors in the photo all match but one, so I spent to have them all matched and upgraded. I'll post pics of that later when I get her and her sister back from my amp tech. I also had the speaker terminals replaced with something a little more user friendly and 4 awg pigtails run. The ones in the photo are currently being replaced with Stinger Pro 4 awg. I'm a Stinger dealer at work and I really support the company, so expect to see A LOT more Stinger involved in the install. Alright here's a little under skirt shot of her. LOL.

    So this is pretty much where I am in the build. I TOLD YOU IT WOULD BE SLOW! I'll have pics of the 3002 after she's finished, as well as the amp for the horns. Stay tuned, all comments and suggestions are welcomed and appreciated!

    Nilyrawtwm reacted to EBBCO in Received Linear power / Blues membership kit today!   
    Awesome, received t-shirt, membership card and vinyls today. It's an awesome thing to be a member. Ruth should have done this back in the days with Linear. Ray and the team did great with this. I hope they keep it up! I live in Sacramento area so I will rep Linear power like I always do locally. Now with the shirt and vinyls it looks more official. There's a lot of people in northern Cali, that have the fever for the Linear scene but don't know how to go about it. This is one very major way to do so. Hopefully I can get more memberships out there. Thanks guys!

    between the neon blue or orange dash parts and the high ass prices on these cars. i am just feed up with people and their stupidity.
    just because this one is rusted out it worth so much less then one that is older then newer one this is the type of bull sh*t i have been putting up with here in michigan. great car/trucks but to much rust just can't find a good one with out rust cheap. if i was to move down south i would not have this problem. from what i heard is we are starting to get cars shipped from canada cause of cash for clunkers deal that the gov was giving.
    any ways here is a older car that cost more then the link above talk about some b.s. also they think kbb is accrate wich is just assinhine. because of the fact you should have your car apprized buy your bank apprazer for it's blue book value. man i have even seen the oppsite them pricinvg the cars above cause the guy thinks it is in exclent condition for twice what better car goes for.

    That will definitely work! If I get my car hauler fixed(been sitting in bushes for over a decade; at the least needa repack bearings), we'll have 2 choices for hauling stuff. Mine's a low boy hauler, made for hauling stock cars.

    Nilyrawtwm reacted to Audio-Concepts in My new Whip!   
    Well I was heading to work last night and noticed a sick dually at a local dealership. Well being as I need a dually for pulling my gooseneck trailer for my race car (stability), I decided to stop and look at it. Well after talking (begging) to my wife, she told me if I could get it under $10,000, I could get it.
    So this morning I took my F-250 tow pig to the car wash and had them detail and buff it and do the interior, basically make it look new, and then headed to the dealership where this dually was.
    Of course driving a lifted F-250 diesel gets noticed and as I pulled I was greeted by 3 salesman. After driving the dually and inspecting thoroughly, I decided it was time to lay out an offer and after discussing other options we came to an agreement.
    After about an hour of talking and paperwork, this is my new whip. 2006 Ford F-350 Dually!
