    Re: CadillacPimpinNOLA's 95 Fleetwood buildup 56K your computer will blow up

    had to take a break to cool off before i screw something up...1 step forward, 2 steps back, nothing on my part but my impatient brother trying to goto work instead of asking me to move my car, well he put the trailer hitch into it and screwed a lot of stuff up. then said, get prices and ill pay for it....im still pissed off

    needs a headlight, marker light, headlight mounting bucket, grill, hood hinges and body work to the hood in two spots

    anway, pics



    hit on side the grill and damages hood





    onto the box, I made a circle maker, made it the wrong size so my circle came to 16.50" instead of 16.75" corrected it and made two perfect circles



    you can see where i erased the first one, now the correct one



    left plenty room in the center after the subs overlap so I can fit a port


    took a long time with the jigsaw to knock these 1.5" holes out, new blades to. almost 15 minutes each hole





    i may go mess with it more after i cool off

    sucks about the accident but I'm sure you'll get it all handled! The parts someone here should be able to hook you up with. Fleetwood guy probably has all the stuff you need at a great price!

    sub box looks awesome, too

    i found the lights and bucket online, im hoping a friend of mine comes through where it will be alot cheaper, all the lights and bucket are N/A from the dealer.

    the grill is my main concern b/c now its up to $590 now, I paid $550 for it. a lil bodywork and paint on the hood and fenders and itll be good

    removed the light and bucket, cleaned the mess up, straightened one of the mounting brackets, now its parts quest.

    I put the subs in, secured them for test fit, pulled them out, test fit the box, now a hump on the floor is holding me from that last 1/2" and also the decklid is still hitting the box so it will need some more trimming

    Re: CadillacPimpinNOLA's 95 Fleetwood buildup 56K your computer will blow up

    drug the box out a lil while ago, looks like im going to have to cut the lip off of most of the top so i might as well take it all the way off. that will have everything clear except to small spots on the side. hopefully i can modify it to work, dont know yet

    yes i was inside the box


    i did knock it back a lil more after this pic




    almost closed, almost

    Re: CadillacPimpinNOLA's 95 Fleetwood buildup 56K your computer will blow up

    hacked the top of the box off, need to sand it a lil more and figure how to beauty it up later, i think ill still need to sand the sides as its hitting a lil but I can close my trunk now with the box in, most of the issue is on the passenger side



    1 sub in and yes a second person would have been wonderful

    2 18" subs in, arms feel like wet noodles now.



    set the tank in, I hope the valves can take all the bass they are going to receive soon




    now need some fiberglass resin and to make a port then I can get in for good.

    ----------

    and yes the back did lower, Ill see how it drives tomorrow, prolly need to air the shocks up. better yet get the airbags installed

    That's an awesome speaker box and air tank and all. I simply couldn't give up that type of trunk space though, its a real LUXURY of the whole land yacht experience.


    I don't always stuff a bunch of junk in my trunk, but when I do, I stuff my junk in a Cadillac.

    Solution: one awesome sounding Cadillac + one awesome wagon.




    I hope that air setup holds too. I was thinking about that earlier.

    i know some people who have stuff like this in smaller setups, no issues so ill find out soon...hooked one sub up last night just to test it so many factors to make it loud later, plus it was 10:30, of course the box is not sealed right now, no port, and i hook the amp to a battery so now real electrical system, amp not set ect...the sub was barely moving but the car was bumping pretty good...I know when they are slamming im going to break something

    DEFINITELY LOOKING GOOD. Sorry to hear about the damage, but I suppose it could have been worse. Just keep moving forward.

    From my experience, yes.

    Shouldn't be anything worth worrying about. Air system fittings are fairly reliable and difficult to break, even from direct trauma. I think the only time I ever came close was putting way too much PSI through a solenoid. It wouldn't open as a built-in safety feature, because it was only meant for handling a max of 200, I believe, but the pressurized air was escaping very slightly and everyone within a mile probably thought their ears were ringing simultaneously. When in doubt, get beefier fittings.

    Re: CadillacPimpinNOLA's 95 Fleetwood buildup 56K your computer will blow up

    last night one of the drivers side rollers decided to break, I wont lie I hate those things cuz they a pain in the butt to change...got it done today though so my window works fine again...few months back I changed the waterpump, it started leaking out the weep hole, nothing major but I had some free time so I changed that today also...of course I remember last time how to get the air out the system, twice it did not work so I used a combo of that method with the vacuum tool tool and using the tool to replace the air with water/coolant and it was good from there...while the panel was off I figure ill show one of those lil bastards for someone who will experiance this as they all fail sooner or later, also took a pic of the door speakers since i never showed that either
