Default Cablguy184's 1949 Ford 2 door Sedan

This is what will be replacing my truck in Sound Quality competition ...
My 1949 Ford 2 door Sedan ... This car had been sitting up out in the woods for a LONG time ...
Actually ... until I got my hands on it, It had never been titled ...
Got a LONG way to go with her ... but Should be a fun project build !!!

To date, My dad has restored 6 of these cars (I worked on most of them as a kid) ... He has 2 left, the one he is working on now and this Black one.
It was bought about 12 years ago to be restored and for the most part, work has been done to it, but put aside SEVERAL times for other vehicles ...
He plans to restore the Blue one, but has no intrest in selling the Black one. So, he gave it to me so it would stay in the Family.
Over the years the car has been cranked up and moved around in the yard and has been driven up and down the road a few times, but for the most part, sits under the old tree in dad's back yard just waiting for someone to give it some TLC ...
We've taken a hot battery and a jug of gas out into the field and cranked up his old cars for years !!! Now all of them are gone (primarily cause of his bad health) except the two 49 sedans ... I'm sure down the road that I will end up with both of them but I am definately not wanting to push that issue !!! He wants to see them completly fixed up and restored before he dies (his words) ... But I have plans to customize mine. Just to see how it turns out ...

First thing is to get the old girl updated to a 12 volt charging system ...
We added a new Alternator (somewhere along the lines of 140 to 200 amp) and upgraded all of the wiring ...
For the power and grounds, I used 2ga Welding cable ...
Started out with the Big 3 setup and went from there ... All major grounds are within 18 inches in length (normal length of a battery) ...
EVERY Ground goes directly to Frame ...
Now within the next couple of weeks, The battery will be relocated in the trunk with a twin (2 batteries) running the entire system including the car ...
Note: We used a Voltage Step-Down resistor (voltage reducer) block to actually keep the engine running on a 6 volt system ...
No need to change any of that at the moment ...

The 49's electrical ... Not so good. Definately not good enough to use this car as a Street Rod or Sound Quality competition vehicle ...
So we went and got this for the ole Girl ...


A must have when building a Street Machine !!! It has everything you need to wire up everything in your vehicle !!!
I plan to run EVERY wire as if it is being judged for Sound Quality installation competition ...



Went ahead and got my RCA Coax cable for this installation too ...

This will be a sort of simple setup as far as Sound Quality is concerned ...
5.25" passive component set built into the dash ... maybe under the dash, got to test and tune this one out ...
and 10" driver in each kick pannel ...
... on ALOT of class A/B Linear Power ...
