    did not have a second set of hands to hold the top of the box and I needed to know if it fit in the car properly before going any further, so I did a wedge and balancing act



    almost in and together

    fully closed and in just not screwed together right now, it fits so i can move on



    just a temporary mock up

    sure does, it will pretty much hold a theif up if they manage to get in the trunk. the box definatly wont come out quickly, to get the box out you need to remove the subs, to get the amps and subs out you need to remove the tank, ect ect ect...

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

    between rain got out and drill the holes for the sub wire on each side, will need to seal those when I get to home depot to get some sealer



    i was tired of that big heavy pile of wire getting in my way, it needed to be cut so i estimated where i needed the passenger side wire, then the other wire has to go to the driver side of the trunk, 2 pieces less than 12" for the amps power, and a few feet to go from the under hood optima to the alternator. I think I have enough

    So you are hooking the alternator up to both batteries? I was thinking of doing this with my coupe.

    yep, plus the one thats under the hood will get upgraded 0 gauge wire. the batteries in the trunk each get there own 0 gauge wire from the alternator back.



    Just spent $288.54 on 2 specialty products to perfectly tune the amps so you get the most performance with out clipping and damaging the equipment.

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

    Hey Pimpin, why 15in pokes and not 17 or 20? Are you happy with them? I want to purchase some rims and was thinking 17s, but I want a smooth ride. I don't want my car to be "jarred" when it hits a bump. I also only want to poke to the edge of the car, would I want 83s or 84s? How are the vogues, smooth and quiet riding? Sorry for all the questions but I thought you would be a good one to ask. Thank you!!!!!

    I'd also like to know your opinion on the vogue's. Almost bought some for my last ride(91 Brougham on factory wires), but heard several people say they were noisy and rode like crap(vibrations). Just couldn't justify the $800.

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

    im not old but im old school so anything over the original 15"s im not having, now if i had a newer deville id look into 20's. love the 15"s though only issue is when i had 1.25" adapters I knocked the cap off the rear with the skirts, went to 2" and it will hit the hub of the rim sometimes if you get cocky with your turn...just have to take it slow...

    as for the vogues I have no issues with them. the do not ride as smooth as the factory tires but they are still smooth, i have no issues with it being bumpy or noisy...you have to keep them clean though if you ride vogues that yellow and white gets dirty after a few days so you have wash them and getting them bright again

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

    ok, from info here I had to get this done...i kept checking the pull-a-part website for any roadmasters. finally last night I seen they added 2 a 93 and a 95. lunchtime today i made a nice trip over there. found what I needed and it wasnt hard to get to since someone removed all the panels already

    this is how I got to the car. 2 screws and unplug the harness for a 95 roadmaster digital climate control. I got that and some 1/4 panel emblems for $19.99



    modifying it now, the glue is drying so I cant put it in the dash yet. hope I glued the brackets correctly.

    ground the side mounts off, cut the cadillac ones off and glued them to the buick...by the way it works wonderfully when i tested it before chopping things up



    cadillac left, buick right, swapping brackets over



    quick mock up


    glued and drying



    my SMD meters also came in today, need to get 2 9volt batteries to get them powered up

    Was you climate control broken or is there some advantage/upgrade by changing to the Buick control?

    just advantage, my other worked fine. when A/C is on it only comes out the front vents, when you switch to heat it goes to top dash and floor, no heat out of the front vents...just cadillacs dumb idea...with the roadmaster one its plug and play except the mounts. I can put any air wherever I want it

    You also get more fan speed control, if I recall. Worthy mod for any 94-96 B/D car.
