    ok, got it etched, the sand i had on hand was a lil too course and i couldnt fully remove the mirror as it was starting to cut through the decal. theres a scratch in it also thats also kinda noticable if you look just right...anyway in the future I may take it down and use a finer sand to cut some more mirror off but it still looks good, hard to see in the daytime and I cant get any lit up pics cuz i havent melted the edges clear yet to let the light through...also didnt cut for the lights cuz the guy at work forgot to leave he saw out for me....another time

    etched

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

    i sure hope so, instead of cutting which is slow on plexi with an airsaw, I just ordered a 16ft of red LED rolls, just like the strips i put in the car, this is one big roll, maybe use the cold cathode tubes behind it, who knows right now...may also figure a way to remove some more of the mirror without sandblasting it...right now its raining and cold so no work gets done.

    worked on the green fleetwood yesterday, have to modify the trim panel around the neon and rewrap that, then have to drill 2 more holes for the new neon, then i will take a mess of wires out and rewire the neon off of one relay instead of the mess thats in there with 2 relays. also hooked his neons back up and the 5th wheel continental kit TV back up so it both switch operated, that wrong set of HID's i bought I installed in his car also...its getting there slowly but surely....o, i also have to glue some clips back to his A-pillar trim. thats about it for now

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

    melted the edges a few minutes ago and reinstalled it in the car, now just waiting for the LED's to get here and make a trim panel...the cold cathode tubes I have although nice arent as bright as the old school ones and even though I only tested with one instead of all 8, it wasnt cutting it...the LED flash bulb on my phone 1 LED blew it away

    I was going to figure away to remove a lil more material from the letters but at night or low light it looks way better, just hard to see in the day time cuz of the shiny mirror

    ----------

    ill wait to see how the LED's look, but I may spray the backside red like my car to stand it out more in the day time...not sure yet

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

    LED's should be in thursday, I got the trim panel for my friends car cut today, may trace it out and cut one for my car...

    had another amp issue...still stumped here and ill figure it out soon...as long as the radio and bass is on everything plays fine but if i turn the bass up it sends one amp into protect...I swapped subs to the other amps and no issues and back so I dont know if its the amp itself or a sub shorting out from all the abuse...well see soon


    and if anyone is looking for a trunk pod, the one shown a while back in the green fleetwoods trunk, its for sale minus the speakers and amps...Make an offer if you want it, id rather have someone use it than throw it away...it a tight squeeze to get it in and you meed something made to hold it up when its in there.

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

    thank ya, Need to trim it out now...I may keep that trunk pod since he gave it to me along with 8 speakers attached to it...he said sell it, keep it or throw it away. might modify it slightly, fix a few weak areas and repaint it, throw it in the trunk. I have an extra amp for the speakers too, just have to fill that gap where his amps where...a mirror plexi light sign, Hmmm

    still trying to figure my amp sub issue also, figure what I need. think its the amp, I pulled both subs out earlier which was a pain, ohm'ed them although they were a lil high, not by much, they were solid. so even though they could use a fresh recone, i think its that one amp messing up. I reinstalled the subs but swap them side to side...if tomorrow on the way to work the driver amp goes into protect I know its the amp, if the passenger amp goes into protect, its the sub...

    Ill get the amp fixed if I can, dont want to buy new ones, also I want to recone the subs, but I dont, I want to upgrade to the newer model Fi BL 18's, but I dont wanna spend the money...sucks


    I have a trim panel I modified to fit the bigger neons for my friends car, just going to trace it on some wood and ill just have to open the center a lil bigger for my sign

    Uber cool with the light show! I think it is a good idea to keep and use the box. That is one thing I always thought your ride could use..a little bass!!!

    BTW, what did you cut that trim panel from? eventually I will need to trim out my trunk where all the factory covers are missing. (Hinges, quarters, and pull down motor.)

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

    that panel was made at another shop years ago but my friend after breaking his neon sign had another sign to use which was bigger so I just opened the center to fit the new sign...hes supposed to bring me some vinyl to rewrap it but we have some bad weather going on all day so thats not gonna happen

    BTW, the trunk has been bedlinered, just have to wrap that panel, mount the neon and wire it up, still cleaning some wires up and then can order a bunch of plexi mirror and get to work...then its off to get Hydraulics...hes still saving for that now

    trim panel before


    if anyone is close local pickup only. 20" chrome and gold spokes on low pro vogues, 2 vogues brand new $1200...you cant get tires for that price...think hes going back on 14"s for the hydros

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

    brought the airsaw home today. got a lil bit done on the trunk but football and nightlife is getting in the way..I wired up a switch and ran the wires to the LED's got that all wired up and LED's glued on to the mirror plexi. trimmed the excess few feet of LED's off.

    depending on football tomorrow, I may try to cut a lil on the pod and get it prepped for fiberglass and fit better than what a professional shop done. I have that extra amp sitting there, why not use it


    and I solved my amp issue, dont know what it was but not arguing either...I pulled the amp out, opened it up, nothing loose, burnt, black ect...put it all back together, wired it back up and all is working like nothing ever happened.
