Any suggestions on to where I can score some new chrome emblems for the Escalade? I know there's e-bay, but maybe theres a another source out there...

There's only two places I know of. Ebay or the dealer.

I went with this guy on ebay, and received the chrome set fast too! Very good seller! And definanlty cheaper than the dealer!

Sweet...Thanks, I really appreciate it...I'd figure I start with the Shinny emblems first....I really want to swap out my door mirrors with the newer ones that have the turn signals. Any suggestions on to how or if this can be done?

I'm doing it right now. I bought ones from Ebay. I haven't decided if im going to swap just the glass or the whole unit.
Swaping the unit involves alot of splicing to configure the two different harnesses.
Just the glass involves just wiring in 1 pair under the drivers dash to each mirrior.

Finally got some pics up....Im in the process of ordering some new chrome emblems and also looking into getting newer door mirrors (w/ Turn signal). Besides that, I want to get some feedback on what kind of rims, in-dash navi, and exhaust system you guys recommend. Thanks in advance and Happy Holidays!!

Signal mirrors are not a bolt on - at least they were not w/ my '01 Tahoe which came w/ the heated power NON signal mirrors. It was way more hassle than it seemed it should be. In other words, the Tahoe was not pre-wired. When they became standard w/ the signal mirrors in 03/04, they started pre-wiring.

I have a little more work left on this speaker enclosure before i'll call it done, but it's coming along nicely I think

sorry for poor photo quality (camphone) and NO I did NOT bolt this thing into the body... it is a clean mount utilizing the square holes in the body.. too complicated to explain and no pictures to make it easier, sorry... bottom line is the box won't shake loose in a hundred years its so tightly mounted, but at no cost to the structure of the car

this was when i first made the box.. i set it down for a couple months before i did anything more to it after this
