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

    got some much needed side work, went from a tune up on a 96 lexus 300 to still having to do that, but my friend drops it off today on a wrecker talking about, I still need the tune up but fix the rest too

    need a trunk, hood, radiator, 2 headlights, coolant and major pulling on the radiator support and the tune up too...he threw me $800 cash and said let me know if you need more...im hoping to be in $400 for used parts from the pull-a-part, aftermarket radiator and autozone, hmm, hell need a condensor too, maybe the pull a part has a good one. the rest is profit and i can get more if need be...easy money

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

    doing all kinds of work and hit a milestone with my car

    40k


    my friend wanted a custom plate for his escalade we just fixed, they come flat black with silver lettering



    closeup of the vents on the lade i done the grill and vents on...now its in the shop b/c of vandalism. someone through a brick through the window and messed the door panel up, then punch or done something and dented the hood




    done it again, this time in the driverside amp...as soon as the bass hit on max bass it popped...replaced the fuses, tried it and it went into protect...i checked everything. wired it all back up and working fine.


    then my friend who wanted a tune up tells me he has a dent in his trunk and he needs the radiator support fixed cuz it got pushed back a lil bit..this is waht he brings me and and says fix it all...doing it all in the driveway in the cold. without the proper tools

    There has to be quite a story behind that one! Like having too good a night out?

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

    he said someone slammed on there brakes as he was going through a green light...i dont know but any shop would have totalled the car over that so he better be happy. for working in my yard while all the proper tools are at work...this is all hes getting

    of course I grabbed a radiator and condensor off of a 92. it looked the same but of course its not. i think the 92 is setup for r12 not 134 freon and the radiator hose placement is different...always something. i may try to save the condensor, its just bent and maybe grab an aftermarket radiator.

    ill prolly do the tune up then swap tha rad/condensor and fan out...stupid fan is powered by the power steering pump

    theres a cover for the core support so you dont see all the hammer marks and such, they also have a hood to hide it, again proper tools are at the shop and the proper way would have been to cut it out and weld a new support in

    couldnt find a grill and a new one is $80 so hes holding off on that...I have $365 in parts but will get some money back when i return the radiator and condensor, then shell it back out for aftermaket radiator. ill prolly hit him for another $2-300 when its all over with

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

    well since the condensor wasnt busted, just bent, i straightened it as good as i could and set it in place...the radiator had a hole in it and the one i got to replace it wasnt correct on the bottom tank hose placement. so i took the one of the bad radiator and placed it on the replacement radiator. ill find out if it leaks when I put it together..going to have to get a lil power steering fluid later and a hose that was so saturated it ripped in half, but thats after football.

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

    ok, got some cool news.

    my buddy big herc @ werc use to be a radio DJ, the station revamped and he didnt fit the new station, but they kept him on as a producer for a morning show comedian "rickey smiley" now he got a TV show on a local cable station. wont lie I havent seen it yet.

    anyway we was talking last night and soon its about to be picked up by local fox channel and distributed across the gulf coast. He said hes going to figure something out and get me on there to show my car and sound and maybe give some ppl a demo and maybe even a hair trick or two, guess ill have to practice

    I dont know exactly when we going to do it but it is going to happen.


    onto the lexus, just have to change the fuel filter (sucks for location) and its gonna go today. told him he owes an extra $300 for total parts and labor $1,100. he gave me $150 on the spot. I may use that money plus a few dollars of my own and go snatch a car up so I can stop driving the fleet so much and actually spend some time installing the air and maybe a lil body work...we'll see

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

    ok, the lexus left a few days ago, have a dodge charger about to come over but its small work so small money, but money is money. made $50 on a quick cheap sub install and another $50 on a quick car clean (non detail)

    finally got in touch with the sign guy and hes supposed to be cutting my vinyl tonight, which means, if i get my compressor fixed ill be etching my sign saturday, if not, ill be at work sand blasting it...

    I thought about it and like it or hate it. this is it..

    represents everything...Louisiana, cadillacs, my rims (swangas) and loud music.

    will light up red on mirror plexi


    also might add another sign in the lower trunk area in a pod that says "High Price Lifestyle' and "New Orleans,La" under it...thats future though

    You should replace the Cadillac crest with the older style. Otherwise, nice.

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

    no sooner than I posted, he emailed me and said come get it. $35 lighter now...got home early, got it where I need it and put it on the mirror back. hopefully tomorrow I will try to get it sand blasted and make 2 cuts on the bottom to fit the lights...then its finding a torch lighter to heat the sides to a clear so the light really transfer through

    not worried about any bubbles just as long as the letters and such are good





    the sign guy couldnt believe how much ppl charge to make these signs, told him how and he was amazed at how easy they are to make. he wants pics when im done, prolly for his website. I told him id be getting more, another for my car and I now a few friends who said "let me see how it turns out with yours" so ill have that buissness soon
