I recieved this van in pretty poor condition...

Busted motor mount, hole in fuel pressure regulator, tranny slipped, etc.. etc..

A big *** dent in the front right quarter panel, and dents in the roof, from being walked on:rolleyes:

I yanked a rats nest of wires, buttons, switches etc.. Was like my little nephew wired this thing..

Anyway- Pulled the smog pump, pulled the dent out of the fender, pounded the dents in the roof up, thats was fun- and had to chisel a piece of the motor off to get the 2nd alternator in..

Im sure it was just their for decoration anyway;)

I DA's the side and rear windows w 60 grit, and painted them too ;) It worked out **** well!

Rubbed it down with Scuff Stuff and a scotchbrite- Shot the ***** with flat black rat-rod primer from Kustom Shop-

Painted door panels, dash etc.. black

List of stuff

1- 200 amp Excessive Amperage alternator in stock location.
1 300 amp Excessiv. Amp. alt in smog pump location.

4 runs of 0 ga from front batt to rears.
Big 3

3 Atomic 3ks- :thumbsup:Thanks George!!!
3 18' Ascendant Audio Mayhems- Thanks Scott:evil:
5 Batcap 2000's - A big thanks to Raymond at Batcap!! Great guy :toast:

2 sets of Visonik components, and 2 sets of visonik 6 1/2's in the doors. I know i know, but they were free..

Wall is 21cu after displacement- tuned to 30hz

Scrapped the carputer, so i still need a headunit :help:

why paint fender white if you just going flat black?

t wasnt white-was grey, i diddnt do all the work in one day, so if you have nothing but metal, humidity makes this stuff called rust.. So you have to cover it w something ;)

Holdon killer :D

So its almost done, taking a little longer beacuse im building boxes, and installing for customers... It's that time of year.

So this is my daily street pounder, and ill getcha numbers soon

I hear that alot for some reason ("I'll go in any class that that van isn't in.") I go to shows and no one wants to compete in the same class as me. Now I remember why I don't go anymore. If people don't like the competition then I guess it's better for me to keep the van under the layer of dust that it has on it (since me being at shows hurts the scene by the looks of it.)

This sport to me is about personal goals and someone else's goals shouldn't have anything to do with your own. I was in the same boat everyone else was/is in with just starting and I worked to reach MY goal I wanted done. My goal this year was to get a 165.0 in the class I normally compete in but seeing as how the rules have changed I don't see it happening and hearing comments from others about how no one wants to compete against me just makes me not care about the sport anymore. :crap:

So I get em in today, hook one up, play it for about 30 seconds, and it goes into protect... Unhook everything, hook it back up, check ohm load, power, multi-meter everything---- Nothing!! :confused:

Hook the 2nd one up, and it does the same **** thing, at a little over 1/2 way up on the amp gain, no bass boost.. Nothing on deck is turned up..

All subs sit at 1.2 ohms at the amp, so im not sure what the hell happened....

Send em to ARC for repair now:mad:

all of his subs were in the ex. cab part of the truck (so about 300+lbs plus the weight of the wall.) He went from about 60psi to get off the ground (bag on bar = takes a lil more psi) to 150+.

I'd say your definetely going to be giving you air ride a work out. you should be ok though if you go from the frame to the axle, or bag over leaf. i wouldnt recommend bag on bar. you dont want that much lift though, do you? maybe 4-5" right?
