    That looks great! I also love the way you see it in the mirror. Is the lettering that faint in person in daylight? It really Looks cool in photo, like ghost stripes.

    it depends on the light. it was sunny the other day and hard to read against the mirror...today it was overcast and you could read it fine, way better than the pic shows. and with the flip of the switch it lights up red so you can miss it, even in the day time.


    with the pod if i have to do any mods it will be for the tank pressure sensor relief, if it hits

    Is the trunk the same as the box caddies? What size speakers go in that pod?

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

    no, they are different but those pods are easy to make, I had a better way to make it work , fit and use no supports as they arent needed but I dont feel like doing all that extra work, this will be good enough for me. I didnt check exact size but each oval has 2 i think they are 5 1/4" pioneer 3 ways...so 8 total


    I was just sitting around thinking, Mardi Gras is right around the corner, I need to get my ass in gear and get this stuff finished.

    ----------

    ok, i was way off, they look like 6.5"s and they are 4 ways

    for whatever reason my camera on my phone doesnt pic the light up well. it makes it look faint but it lights up pretty good during the day, good enough to read it fine from a good distance

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

    the guy who built the trunk pod,i never liked him as he tried to rip me off one day for getting some work done, on top of that he was supposed to give me the friends price...now I have seen him do some great work and ppl ride his nuts like hes the best but I have seen crap from him, coming out of a professional shop.

    now this pod has some of his crap features...I couldnt figure how to get the 2nd grills out, the top ones where screwed in...heres the outside view



    this is the back view


    now one crap job he done is, why choke the speakers down to whatever size hole that is, just messing with the output and quality

    the other thing is i couldnt unscrew it b/c the screws come from the other side of the panel..so im trying to figure out his black magic installation and decided, screw it, im just pry it off from the backside...He liquid nailed the grills on, 2 screws from the back would have been perfect and easy on/off

    makes me wonder how shops stay in buissness and all them holes on the back, the screws are in backwards so you cant remove them.unless you pry the grill off

    He just depends on people being too stupid to look. I suppose most people who have them built for them wouldn't even know how to take them apart, much less what they should see if they did. I have never built a box and am not real knowledgeable about system. Even I can see that's some real BS you got there! Just goes to show...you gotta open your own shop!

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

    not everyone has the money for me to invest in a shop and I like what I do in bodywork working my own schedule, with tax's going up, i been getting alot of tax free side work so im lovin it right now...now even though he done a lil crap work, the time materials and labor for what he done wasnt bad...it was that pod, wrapped in suede, all 8 speakers, molded fiberglass, 1 JL amp and a big custom amp rack metal bracket to hold it up was $1,500...he tried to charge me $1,000 to install my trunk actuators when I had all the stuff to do it, he just had to install it (i was being lazy till i got that price)...then i found out he put a tablet in my friends car, $1,000 and its stuck to the factory radio trim with just dynamat...on the other side of things ive seen great work from him, wonder how much it cost though

    lunch time i grabbed the pod and brought it to work to fix a few areas and get it ready for paint, still havent figured how ill keep it hoisted in place yet.

    during sand the liquid nail off, the grinder spit oil all over so those wet spots are that, hit it with some solvent and its all gone

    layed a lil bondo in a few places and smoothed it out



    hand scuffed the hard to reach areas and now its ready for a lil primer, sand, sealer, paint and clear coat

    I get paid $150 tomorrow for a side job, I have a few dollars in the wallet, have to see what I made this week as work is a lil slow at the moment but I may purchase 2 more optima yellowtops and 8 post terminals so I can have a lot more juice, help the alternator out some when at full tilt till I can get a 2nd alt and figure how to mount it

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

    2 optima yellowtops and 8 battery terminals $375.90...going to get 2 junk batteries from the main dealership to return for core charge as each on has a $12 core charge and I could sure use that $24 back

    then I threw the pod in the new booth that we just got done after a fire and man is it nice...laid down some red primer and left it there till tomorrow...there are 2 cracks that will be hard to see, if i fixed them, they would just crack again so im leaving them
