Patiently waiting on wire. Still gotta install my alt bracket though. Been working on stuffing 3 batts in the back of this thing lol
Here is a pic of where I plan on putting 2 of em.
I had to cut out some of the inner skin to get it to fit good. Plan on wrapping the batt in a plastic bag and foaming under and behind the batt to help hold it in place.
Tight but it fits that's looking inside the side panel beside the back seats.
This was given to me a few weeks ago. Went out and shot it for the first time this past weekend.
think i finally have my wiring and battery situation right.
little bit of equipment to work with
here is how the batts will be. will this work though? run alts to the front left battery shown, then to the right battery, then to the back battery, then to the amps? all the wire will be 4/0 welding cable.
any input will be greatly appreciated, seems like the most logical way.
Here are two ways I could go about wiring them.
I went ahead and did it this way, if it doesn't work it won't be near as hard to change it.
This will be where the two charge wires off the alts come to.
3rd batt. Gonna need some terminals for this one. 1 4/0 3 1/0 and 2 gauge on each terminal. Will be 2 4/0 grounds running to frame off this batt also.
Better idea of how it's ran. Still gotta put interior plastics back in.
Got a little bit of a problem i gotta fix first before i install the alts. See how the charging posts stick out? im afraid it is going to hit the hood and the power steering pump. (left alt is the top). gonna send it off to singer to get them re-clocked and possibly powder-coated if he will. might even get a clamp of them since Mechman was too lazy to do so.lol
actually felt like i got a little bit acomplished today, was gonna send out the alts monday, but said screw it i'll test fit them even though i know they wont fit. i'll be damned if they fit lol
doesnt hit the hood, not even the insulation inside the hood. was rather shocked
here is where i had to beat the fender in a little so the bottom alt would fit right.
little bit of sub ****
this is the plan on securing the subs down
Hopefullly this weekend i get the wires ran for the alts, get everything under the hood done except grounds. plan on getting subs mounted and amp installed besides the power and ground( waiting on a distro block from toolmaker). also plan to figure out the tuning i want and might play around with some polyfill to see how it effects it.
Regulator wired up
Had to fix this. Surprisingly it didn't sound all that bad like this lol
Got the interior put back in for the most part
Wiring up subs
All mounted up. Gonna do some adjusting on the port and figure out tuning.
With this I have 3 different port tunings, one without The middle, then two different middle sections. 9in,12in, and 16in iirc. Longest one should get me in the 20s
Sending one of the alts off to singer to get clamped an powdercoated. When I get it back ill send the other one off.
Getting close now!!
Holy smokes look at those surrounds. Those beast have some DSL surrounds. I've used those security screws + nuts before. Be very careful with them. I had problems before to where that bottom nut/teeth piece stripped underneath making it a BIG PITA to take the screw out.
Went to the auburn/asu (I'm not an auburn fan, ROLL TIDE!!!)game tonight, but got a little done before the game and last night.
Got my terminals from toolmaker.
Alt belt ran for one alt while other is being powdercoated.
2 grounds for my alts, just haven't hooked them up yet.
4/0 cable cutters and crimpers. Life savers and have paid for themselves several times lol
And anyone wanna guess what this means???
