Default 2010 Malibu Shok Build

Hey everybody! Figured I'd start a build log to keep track of my progress since my build is now about 70% finished. This is my first online build log, but not my first build. Big thanks to Sound Specialists and Team Excessive members Toby and Nate for their help on the build. And also thanks to Russ from Shok Industries for making great products. Now that the a** kissing is done, on to the build...

We started by removing the stock battery seen here with old power and grounds.

After the old battery was removed we needed to modify the stock battery tray to accommodate the larger AGM.

We started upgrading the charging system by doing the "big 3". We used some 1/0 Monster Cable removed from the previous install and Techflexed it to match all of the Shok wire that was soon to go in.

With all of the factory wires and upgrades tacked to the side posts the fuse holders were mounted to the factory electrical box and triple 1/0 top post installed on the battery.

Toby Holding the positive runs of Shok Reference Elite about to go in.


With all of the interior on the driver's side removed we were able to start running the 6 runs through the firewall. All runs were Techflexed in the engine bay and coming in through the firewall. Back-up camera wires along with RCA's were relocated later on to avoid signal interference.

Wires were secured through firewall using silicone and tacked every 8" throughout the entire vehicle.

Haha, I know just trying to get the post count up. It's all good. I'll start doing one post per section of the build after I get the wiring job posted.

2 layers of Second Skin Damplifier Pro were applied to the trunk and rear deck. All factory holes were covered. 100% coverage on all metal panels.








Then Second Skin Luxury Liner was applied to all plastic panels so that the plastic panels set flush against metal. Factory insulation was thin enough that it could be placed over the Luxury Liner.
