    Re: Da' Budget Beater Build ('96 Buick Regal)






    4-Gauge wiring from Vertex just got here. Wont be able to get anything done with Margaret as my dad's been borrowing it to drive to work. Got a spot cleared in my brother's garage for my Grand Prix to park for the remainder of winter. Going to employ him to help me put together the system
    that's going in it. Yay waiting.. double 07 is finishing up the box for my 8's, its coming together nicely. More updates ahead!

    This is the best 4-Gauge wire I've ever bought.
    Andrew at Vertex Audio was kind enough to upgrade me to a spool for free.

    It's out!

    Stock radio going back into Prix (in the background.)

    Pioneer coming out of Prix

    She's out!

    This ugly f*cking thing is back in.

    RCA's coming out too.

    Remote wire too.

    Screw driver handle (Pushed all the way up, so I could find where it comes through..)

    Screw driver head (Making my Power wire hole in an unused grommet.)

    I didn't upgrade my climate control.. That's standard, I may upgrade to a '01-'03 climate control (for the Grand Prix). Been reading on how they're less glitch-y. Some times I start my car and the fan's blasting, even though the display says its off.

    Got some sh*t done!

    Wiring harness Good2Go!

    Dash kit Good2Go!

    Better shot of wiring harness.

    Connectors I used since I'll be swapping the HU back to my Grand Prix come spring.

    Package. $2.47 for 7 Male/ 7 Female connectors @ WalMart.

    Good choice on the bullet connectors. Hopefully yours are of better quality than mine. Got 'em at Fry's and they're a PITA to separate once connected. At least I know they're not coming loose lol.

    And could have sworn that was a replacement climate control. You got me there.

    Soldered ring terminal onto ground wire.

    Rcas and remote wire routed to trunk, tucked under panels/carpet.

    Ain't it purty?
