: My new custom escalade with pics



Lu Scola

I have a 2003 Escalade EXT. I have 23 inch wheels on it. I have 2 Pioneer Navigation headunits in the front, It has a Z3 and a D3. I has Sirius, XM, Navtraffic, bluetooth, 2 Ipods, and internet service/connection modified into video 2 input on the unit. I am able to get on ebay while driving/sitting in traffic. It has a wireless mini keyboard w/ built in mouse. I rewired the whole audio unit, cut out all bose speakers and amp. I have Pioneer componants in the front, and Kicker in the back. Amps, crossovers, compacitors, digital fuses, ect... I added a new grill with Asanti kit and new cadillac emblems, I have custom suade wrap on lower bezel. The headliner, and pillars are going to be suade with the inserts/ netted part of the seats suaded also. Much more work to be done. I have had the truck for 3 weeks. If you notice in the first pic the Bvlgari clock is not there, then scroll down and now its back relocated.

Let me know what you guys think so far......

THE 23'S Came on the truck when i bought it. I am trying to sell them, so if anyone is interested let me know. The wheels are in perfect condition, and the tires are 2 months old. I am looking for a set of 26's. I will ebay these in the next week or two.

I'm digging the audio setup. All of that and no subs?

The emblem on the front looks wayyyy too small compared to everything else. I would get that new emblem on asap.
The center caps on the rims look weird in the pictures. I don't know how they look in person, but it looks like your missing the center caps being that they're black. Nice ride though.

I have the 2 channel amp all wired up. I just havent had time to build the custom fiberglass box to put my three L7's into yet. I have all my audio equipment, just a few hours of labor left to do when I get time. The wheels look better in person than in the pics. I am selling them so it dont matter. They are not my style. I am gonna do a more full face chrome 26.

No, I have three Kicker L7's going into the back of my EXT. Its going to be very loud. My highs and mids are crisp and clear. i can turn my voulume way up without ANY distortion. Its very very clear. the subs will complete the audio to a T. Thanks for the compliments guys, I cant wait until I get this truck finished. The craziest thing of all is that this in not even my main vehicle. I bought this to use as my work truck. I needed a pick-up and i like luxury so I decided to buy a EXT that we traded in at our car dealership. The guy owed $31,000 on it. I appraised it at $13,000 and he rolled over $18,000 onto a BMW 645 that we had priced at $52,000. He got it financed and with the rollover now he owes $70,000. i bought the truck 2 days later after the deal was funded by the bank. I love this truck...too bad its AWD and gas is through the roof.......


I also have the factory radio that has XM serice paid for until 2011. if anyone wants to trade there factory radio and a couple bucks we can swap. Your facory has to be in pristine condition like mine is and has to have XM option. Let me know. I already have Sirius,XM, and Nav traffic on my Pioneer Z3. So the factory radio XM service is activated for nothing.

Nice but why have Asanti badges and no Asanti rims?

Lu Scola
06-17-08, 04:03 AM
The truck had 24 inch Asantis on it before i bought it and the previous owner put these wheels were on. I just havent popped the emblems off yet. I was looking to buy a set of 26 inch Asantis. IDK what I will do yet Asantis in 26 is an outragious price.... If I get another brand beside Asanti when I sell these wheels, I will just put the emblems on Ebay. They go for 60 bucks shipped a emblem. I have 4 of them.

06-17-08, 10:40 AM
Sounds like the previous owner didnt know how to deal. But hey you came out on top. Asantis in a 26 will kill your pockets. Check out Dubs, Giovanna, etc.

Hopefully if it doesnt rain this weekend i will start to build the fiberglass bracket that will go overtop my amps and all the componants under the rear seats. All you will see is the tops of the componats sticking out of the flat bezel about 1/4 inch. I want this to be very clean. I have the componants traced out of the wood ready to cut. then i will fibergalss and paint it black. I will probably add a 7 inch monitor in it also, with its own DVD player. The bezel will hide all the wiring and be very very clean. As you can see I have a brand new Kicker 2 channel Amp in there that is wired up but I havent hooked it up to any subs yet. i want to sell it now and get a Pioneer. I want everything in the truck to be ALL PIONEER. Anybody need a new amp let me know its 2 weeks old never used I have the box and every thing it came with.
Everything has blue lighting and the Kicker has a green light, so therefore it must go.

Today I took out the 2 channel Kicker amp and bought a 2 channel pioneer amp I should have bought in the first place. I wired it up and still havent built a box yet. I also made a suade bracket panel in the ashtray for my park assist and traction control buttons. Let me know what you guys think:

Here is the 4 Channel Pioneer 600 watt Amp:

Here is some pics of my new Sirius Sattelite TV. The picture is like having HD. The pics look like there are lines in it but its just the camera. No loss of signal so far where I have traveled.

I also got the clock bezel and the trac and parktronic buttons bezel wrapped in suade. It looks clean and factory.

I replaced the regular Amber bulb with a cool blue bulb, it looks really good with just the parking lights on. The headlights are turned off in this pic. I may do this in the Escalade too.

Looks like Im not going to get any more done to my EXT until next week. My truck still is in the shop with the trans not functioning. Im going to do two headrest screens, finish my amp rack, take out the wall behind the rear seats. I am going to build a custom wall with a few subs in it, and a plexi glass center square with a Cadillac emblem etched in the glass with neon lighting it up. Im not 100% on it though (the design). Im just playing with a few ideas. I just want a clean unique EXT. I hope to sell my rims soon and get 26's on the truck. I also want to redo all my interior. Carpets, door panels, and seats. I think I will do a 2 tone design.

whats the point of two head units? You should have done a screen up top (factory radio area) and the z3 where it is.

Lu Scola
07-05-08, 07:38 PM
I did it because I couldnt choose between which unit I wanted in my truck so I did both. They each have there own strengths. I can have nav on either screen and watch a dvd, ipod vid, 6 disc dvd changer, internet. They work well with one another. The Z3 has built in hard drive, the D3 supports Ipod video. There was space to do it so why not?

Finally good news. My new transmission was dropped off at my dealership today. So the truck was puched into the bay this evening before we closed. It is now on the lift. I will be able to take her home tommorrow July,9th...I will drive her around for a few days and get used to her again. I have been driving my Lex SC400 and my Mercedes ML500 for these past 2 weeks. Its going to feel so good to smell that Cadillac leather and play with all my goodies. I just installed a new pioneer D3 navigation Unit in my SC400 yesterday because I didnt know how much longer before I got my truck back.

Heres a pic of the install I did on my Lexus:

how much for the eclips unit?

around 450 with the Sirius interface. It is in pristine condition. The unit comes in the original box with everything it came with. I paid $1800 new, and 135 for the Sirius interface.

whats the point of two head units? You should have done a screen up top (factory radio area) and the z3 where it is.

what size screen up top would it have to be?

Heres how the painted taillights came out. This pic is with the lights on on the brakes being pressed. I taped off the reverse clear section, it looks alot better than painting the whole tail light
