    I never posted the final product, here is a pic.



    The well used JL Audio was replaced with an Eclipse speaker... it just happens to be blue so I wont be adding the color matched speaker grill. I also replaced and secured the amp. I'm thinking of putting a kill switch on the remote line so I wont have to have pounding bass all the time. I need to fix an issue with the way the upholstery guys reinstalled my 6x9s but all in all I'm real happy with the way it all turned out.

    On to the next detail...

    It looked great when you showed it to me at mooneyes. perfect fit! For the bass just put an inline knob and mount it somewhere at the bottom of your dash or something. Gives you total control of the amount of bass at your fingertips.

    Rick, you are my hero man. Someday I will make it back to California and I'm gonna have to control myself. I just love your '64 soooooo much.
    Great ideas. Just exceptional. Love that interior and what you've done to that trunk! I'm gonna see this car someday.

    the speaker in the suitcase is a genius idea.
    And that set up. Cant have enuff of it, i love how every single wire, bolt, ground strap, rubber etc..is in plain site. The beauty of it is in the ''mechanical details'', if this makes any sense

    Little note: couple weeks ago on a x forum i read a guy commentin on a picture of your trunk saying the set up was anti-esthetic cause the tanks are separated from the motors making it look not tidy.....alright.

    I'm glad you guys like it. When I was first considering it I figured it would be okay to loose 10% sound quality if it gained 30-40% cool factor. In a sound system that's an acceptable trade. I wouldn't accept that if the outcome effected safety or performance.

    This (safety) is where my next move comes in. I'm still upset over missing the Majestics new years picnic. I replaced the coil and module that stopped me dead in my tracks (stupid procomp crap) but the wire on the pick up coil inside the HEI dizzy was so old it cracked off in my hand. I spliced in a repair section that seemed to work but I felt very very uneasy about rigging such a sensitive moving part. I looked into repairing by replacing the pick up coil and I'm still gonna do that but decided to replace the whole dizzy with a performance one. I couldn't pull the trigger on it buying the cheap Chinese units all over eBay for 50 bux. Lately all the cheapo decisions I've made have bit me in the ass. Not this time! I decided on a company I've used before... Pertronix, more specifically a Pertronix HEI Flamethrower distributor. I was going to get the MSD Street Fire unit but after research I discovered that's a cheap Chinese unit with an MSD sticker..... FAIL! So the Pertronix has been ordered and it should be installed this weekend. The last time i used the Pertronix line was 10 years ago making my old VW dizzy point-less with great success. This is the one I got

    Pertronix is just as shitty as anything else on the market, I've seen tons of their product get returned over the years for failing.

    Dont you have a car to buy or something? I try to avoid your post please stay clear of mine.^^^

    If your going to have to post on my threads and talk shit about my purchases at least have the courtesy to post useful information too so the next guy can make the right purchase... jack ass!

    By the way for what its worth to others reading this EVERYTHING has a potential to fail, I took that and their warranty into mind.

    Don't say shit like this then! I've run many of these with no issues at all, there's nothing wrong with them

    dude go away!

    I am entitled to have my own opinion in MY fucken thread. Besides I didn't lie... where are they made? If you do a search one was compared to the 50 dollar Skip White Chinese units and they were practically identical, now GTFO!

    Pertronix in mine for at least 200,000 miles you made the right choice Rick. That trunk is stellar. What happend with the 6x9s if you dont mind me asking?
    I'm sorry, I don't care how fucking groovy and melodic metal music might get, you do not EVER dance to metal. PERIOD. You might bang your head, swing and sway with the groove, jump up and down and pit with the other long-hair's, but you don't FUCKING DANCE TO IT.
