    Build log for 1996 Lumina LS- The Blue Fury

    My car is a 1996 Chevy Lumina LS and is my daily driver. Everything is pretty much stock except for a few things-

    Excessive Amperage 200A alt
    Big 3 0g
    Optima yellowtop in front
    Northstar NSB 90
    0g front to back

    As of a couple days ago I had a budget stereo. RF power 5 1/4 and 6x9 coaxials in the stock locations. A visonik 240xt to power them. I have 2 but only run 1 10" RF power HX2 sub in a 1.75 @33hz off of a DUB8001 amp. My HU is a premier p490ib with my 2G nano connected to it. But right now, I replaced the DUB amp with an RF T10001bd and gave my 6x9's away. Nothing looks really nice because its still temporary.. as in many wires aren't in their final locations, etc.

    There will be a few possible sections to this build log.
    Seat Screening
    Sub Box
    Amp Rack
    Glassing the Doors

    This wont be done until maybe early spring of 09 because of slow income and not much free time. Not to mention certain products aren't available yet.



    And now.... Seat screening! I got this idea from Thumpper and changed it a little bit.



    A blue blanket to hide everything the next couple days I wont have a back seat. I thought it fit nicely.


    Unmodified

    Screen color comparison... not perfect but close enough.

    Target area




    Knife time

    So far so good



    The screen is held in place with a few staples for now, but I'm done for the night. Its 2am and I've got school tomorrow.

    A couple more pictures of the car itself. The project is on hold for a couple hours because I gotta start working on my Halloween costume.


    The dirty blue fury. Living in the country on a grapevine ranch makes for a never ending battle. I gave up cleaning my car because it would get this dirty less than a week later.

    Flames make it faster.

    My hu/iPod holder


    It was really easy to make.

    Not much progress made on the screening except for that I undid all the screen and replaced it with mesh. Ive been busy with finals and other projects, not to mention I bent or broke all the needles I was using so this has been on hold.



    2 days ago I started the box. Its a 6th order tuned to 33 and 63hz designed by Jud (Fallen) Thanks again man. This is as far as I got:
    Before I started I had to make a sandwich.. polska kielbasa, colby jack, butter, bbq sauce, honey, and tobasco sauce on a 2 foot french baguette baked then broiled. But next time, double meant and double cheese.



    The sub is my other hx2 10"



    Just tilt your head to the right Im too lazy to actually rotate the pic









    Still no jig for the router, gotta do it the long way but it came out great.
