You should absolutely post some videos of it playing to your YouTube. I'm subscribed.

I got my power and ground wires last night from Knukonceptz.com, then got called in to work shortly after so I haven't had time to run them yet. Hopefully later on today I can make some videos, probably tomorrow though.

I'm trying to figure out where I should get wire (funny how we are in the process at the same time). The local store sells that high quality Rockford Fosgate wire at $2.50 a foot. Otherwise I've gotta order some. Knu's 4 gage wiring kit looks like an option. My only issue is that it doesn't say AWG anywhere. What gauge did you order and does it look true?

I got 1/0 from Knu. It's true 1/0 compared to everything else I've seen and costs 1.95 a foot.

DC Audio Level 3 15" with an Audiopipe 1500. He will be banging loud by next meet.

I'm really pissed though because The ground wire that I got is just a tad too short so it's ran in a really shitty, ugly spot. I'm gonna order more 1/0 ground wire and tuck it away somewhere. I need new RCAs too, I'm getting reallly bad engine noise from the sub.

I'm going to go with the 4 ga. wiring kit. It's got everything I need for a really great price. I almost made the mistake of getting CCA wire but the Knu kit is OFC so that makes me happeh.

Their wire is legit though. Never had any problems with it at all.

Ok so how did you go about painting your bumper and the old style grille? I just realized you did what I wanted to do but yours came out shiny and mine doesn't even reflect. Did you get a pro job or was it spray can?...

Did you use clear coat? I used probably 1.5 cans of clear for each can of base coat. On the front bumper I used 3 cans of base and 5 cans of clear.

Stock as can be. From the factory, July 1997.
