Re: Project: Another one.

Yeah, this is a 80lb 800 dollar sub.

Quite rediculous. But it's worth it.

Re: Project: Another one.

Audioque 2200 at 14.8V solid power. Wired to .7 nominal.

I assume it's doing more than rated power without a doubt.

Pretty impressive. With both windows down, you're legs will go numb after about 1 minute of low bass. Blurs your vision pretty bad.

It loves the lows, 25hz-40hz all day. Pretty much stupid loud for what it is. I'm 6'7" so this is literally the biggest setup I can fit. May get a bigger amp in the future, but honestly I don't need it.

Re: Project: Another one.

Well guys its been quite some time since I've updated any of this stuff. I post this same stuff on a couple different forums and forget to update all this... but here is where i am..Audio upgrades, interior upgrades, another new tire, new fenders, window tint, and lots of miles...
Been working a lot, and traveling, going to shows and just not a whole lot going on with the truck.


I am missing some pictures/steps along the way, but it is what it is. I have been to busy to do this whole internet thing.

I built a new set of fenders for the front end, shaved my hood, primed and sealed it, and have started some dent repair. Was never found of the fenders underhood having no rolled edge, so 2 new ones fixed that.

shaved antenna





inner fenders/skins


















EVERY harness in the engine bay will be stripped of plastic wire loom, and techflex braided sleevling will be installed, for a cleaner, less cluttered look. Some of my harnesses have 1" wire loom, and only 1/2" worth of wiring... buncha mess.







Went ahead and shaved the holes on the inside of the fenders as well... nice touch when laid out...








Some paint/primer that this thing needs oh so badly!












EPOXY





hood filler/sanded down to the factory sealer







underside epoxy



topside



2k













Still rocking the old fenders until truck gets sprayed... no point in tearing up primer and having to redo it... new air filter underhood that acutally fits.... some time at summit and some measuring did this...





BIG AMP





Used rubber isolators to space amp off the floor... NEW PPI 900.4 To replace the discus 4.125




Cut 8 holes in my false floor.... 4 pushers, 4 pullers...



new input wiring, all 2/0 welding cable... lots of wiring...



All 8 fans mounted, they do NOT hit the seats even all the way reclined etc.... work great, keeps the amp cool, 100 degrees and under all the time...



INTERIOR LED UPGRADE AGAIN! SMD leds with 3x more smds...













WINDOW TINT

33% front sides, 39% windshield, 5% strip, 5% quarter glass, and rear glass...





CATCH ALL FLOORMATS:



pictures from scrapin' the coast, made it there and back with no issues,....

Re: Project: Another one.


Couple random pictures here.... terrible pic of the box wrapped in carpet, been done now forever, not sure why i dont have any pictures of that.... a quick shot of the windsheild tint in normal lighting nice and dark... and 2 DEKA G31 batteries ill be adding to the battery bank where the jumpseat used to go.... Will also be fiberglassing that panel to clear all the batteries...











Interior/audio build continues... never ends... 4 8" PRV midbass, to replace the 2 sundown neo pro v1's... Fiberglass panels, factory leather uppers... dyed to the closest factory color possible.... I have about 100 hours into these.... very proud of the quality, and sound these gave me.. speaker grilles are magnetic, with the power of 4 neo magnets they stay on very firm.... very trick little add on i thought...











































and who said bagged trucks cant haul shit? 1000lbs worth of tools in the back here... drove fine...

Re: Project: Another one.

Thanks for the good words guys.. Very hard to manage doing any upgrades or mods, I drove this thing 1-500 miles a week..

The door panels do look factory, I've had many people ask me what year model those were out of.... And when I say, well those are custom built... They seem to be lost.

Next project will be the 3 battery rack, more wiring to those, and a fiberglass gauge pod in the same location on in the console, just a better look, and more visible.

Re: Project: Another one.

Thank you buddy. A new 4-way active deck is in the works for this thing, with some serious tuning, recovering the false floor to match the box, more batteries, more wiring, and some more fiberglass work, and ill call it done... until something bigger or better comes out. LOL

Would really like to jump on the paint and bodywork on this thing pretty heavy while the weather is still warm, but with my job, i dont have time to do a whole lot working 6 days a week sometimes 7 or 8 days. LOL.

Will keep this posted folks.

Re: Project: Another one.

Alright guys, got some hubs and brackets.... Stripped down the spindles... For some BIG BRAKES. Finally some good stopping power for the 20's... Also a big cosmetic increase...

Factory Z06 red calipers, powerstop zinc plated drilled/slotted rotors, powerstop ceramic pads.. New wheel bearings, new seals, greased everything, cleaned up the front frame, new MAIN brake line on the front under the crossmember, new bracket for the flex fuel sensor from metal instead of the cheap/broken ass plastic thing the factory had holding it...

Sprayed a little bed liner in a can on the frame, clean and simple.





Drilled and tapped and cut at this point..



test fitting...



painted brackets and hubs



LEFT SIDE stripped, tapped, painted...



all new brake line...









I have the polished stainless brake pad covers... gives the caliper a nice clean look between it...







from a carshow/meet sunday me and blake went to..

Re: Project: Another one.

Yeah i have most of the rear disc stuff. if not all of it. And the vette brakes seem to be worth it though although i've never had any.

Re: Project: Another one.

Nope, the corvette lines wouldnt fit... and s10 lines are 100 bucks....

Dont need them. i know the give you a bit firmer pedal.. but i already have a plenty firm pedal.. no real performance gain. So for now, I'm going to skip out... This project costed me around 1200 bucks somehow.... receipts add up... scary... i had planned this to be 750-800 bucks...

BUT in my defense, a big brake kit for these trucks is 2500 bucks... so im plenty happy with it.. all good parts, good quality stuff that will outlast the truck im sure.

Re: Project: Another one.

Cool, I think you have to get a line with a different end on it for the vette calipers, they use a different size banjo bolt IIRC. Was hoping you had so I could get a part number haha.

They look good though.

Re: Project: Another one.

no the stock line fits on the vette calipers just fine...

the thread size on the stock line is 7/16 24, then it goes to regular style fitting for a banjo bolt to pass through...

Basically you can get on ebay and order stock s10 stainless steel lines and fit perfectly onto the vette calipers. You do reuse the vette banjo bolt however, as the thread pitch is wrong on it when compared to the s10 caliper.

Very easy stuff on the lines.
