Default 2002 Lincoln LS build log

So it time once again to start rebuilding the setup in my Lincoln. The only thing I plan on keeping is my false floor for 2 of my PPI amps, everything else will be new.

I was only able to work on it for about 2 hours today and I spent that time relocating my yellow top. It was mounted in the corner of my trunk along with the KNU distros but I want to keep as much of my trunk as possible this time and also keep the car about 95% stock looking.

My car originally came from the factory with the battery mounted in the trunk so that makes it easy to run wires but it also make the spare tire well a little cramped.

Factory setup



So I decided the only place to fit another battery would be right next to the original one, but the battery box was about 1.5 times the size it needed to be so I started by trimming that down.

Before



After



Once that was done it was time to squeeze the batteries in there.

Plan A was to slide the factory battery up and put the Yellow top right beside it.

Plan A



The problem with plan A was that the battery posts stuck up too much so when I put the false floor in it was sitting on the posts/

Time for plan B (after much moving things around trying different places). Lay the Yellow top on it's side where the OEM battery was and put the OEM battery where the Yellow top was. This provides enough clearance for the false floor and everything fits very tightly. The OEM tie down hold the yellow top in place and the yellow top and spare tire hold the OEM battery in place (until I can get another tie down that will fit for the OEM battery)



That's it for now because it got too dark out to work any more. Tomorrow if the weather is nice I am going to re-install the false floor along with 1 or 2 more amps and wire everything up. If it's crappy out I will finish up the enclosure I've been working on.

Got some more work done today.

First a quick pic of the amps going into the car.



PPI PC 2400.2 for the mids
PPI PC4800.2 for the front and rear comps
PPI PC21400.2 for the subs

The two bigger amps in the false floor and the 2400.2 mounted under the rear deck.



Got all the amps wired up and running (kind of messy but it works and won't be visible)





False floor in place.



Factory trunk mat back in place.

I need my setup to look just like that. My project is doing a false floor setup like that. You'll have to give me some pointers seeing that we have the same car

Looking very nice. What are you doing for airflow to the mono amps?
