one of, if not the, hardest part of the install. beauty panel

so there you guys have it. my wall build is nearing completion

NOT!

i had to leave ( my shop is 3 hrs from here where i am currently going to school) so I can only go down on certain weekends. This weekend was hectic, i went 66hrs w/out sleep ( from saturday morning at about 8ish til 2am tuesday Morning) but we got a hell of alot done. Like I said, I messed up the wiring, so I didn't hook up the amp. i got the 4 channel goin and whatnot, but no bass, probably til next weekend

also, I messed up 1 cut on the beauty panel, so I think I'm gonna pull it off and trace it on a new piece and recut it. overall, though, it turned out excellent, and I'm excited to hear what it can do

Some pics from the 16v conversion. As you can see, I was completely disappointed by the Mechman alt and dual kit. Actually, I was really, really mad about it. For the amount of money he charges, it didn't fit worth a sh!t. It took me 6hrs to "modify" it to make it fit. I was really, really pissed off about that.

Also, the first picture you can see the belt he supplied me w/. It was about .75" too long. Which added to my frustration. how the hell did that happen? I don't know

So I went and spent another 50 bucks on a Gatorback that was a bit smaller, and finally got it all together.

Got the VCM mounted on the windshield, looks great and is very functional now.

Started out Saturday sledding. Went up w/ my brother and a couple friends, and it started snowing. Anyone who's ever been deep in the mountains when it starts to snow hard knows how shitty it can be. It got to very low visibility, and someone ended up riding into a deep hole. This was after we'd dug on it for about a half hour. It was insane. The only visible part was the top of the tunnel and the flap lol. It was buried






Well, I busted out the plasma cutter, but no glasses. So the holes I cut were shitty but cleaned up and covered w/ a piece of hose









Started the carpet.






















All mocked up w/ amps in and carpeted up nicely! Amps look good w/ the carpet, and everything fits well.







Let the machining begin! I worked a GOOD chunk of Sunday on these. Man, they were a pain. Everything is precise, though, and perfectly placed for what I want. VERY pleased with this. Sorry toolmaker, had to do this one myself! Lol, I hope you understand

I had a good time doing it, though, and really enjoyed working on these machines. I had access to some great stuff, and just about anything you can imagine as far as working w/ metal goes! They came out super clean!










Damn, that's a nice tool! Planetary transmission driven tap. Talk about an expensive unit! But it allows me to tap a hole without doing it by hand, and absolutely eliminates the chances of it stripping out. Excellent piece of equipment.













nomnomnom






Geez, that looks like an incra-jig! Yep. That's right.








Started mocking up my "fuse holder" (placed it on a nice piece of phenlic, and made some nice little wrapped up risers out of some 1" PVC. Very industrious









Started wiring everything up. This was a very tedious task. Every piece fits nicely, and soldered up nicely I have some pics elsewhere of my new soldering technique hopefully I can get em on here soon. Needless to say, it's pretty fckin rad!









Soldered up nicely and heat shrunk. Solid copper lugs throughout. Definitely the only way to go.













One word for this thing: badass. It's great. Used it for my ground block. Filled up all the holes nicely, and it works very well.









This last series of pictures shows my trip home. I left at 3 a.m. on Monday morning, drove through the wind/snow/fog to make it home around 7:30. I saw the sun rise. Not a cool thing to see when you haven't slept in a day or two. But, I did make it back to my dorm in time to take about a 45 minute nap before class :/

Totally worth it tho!

Started to put it all together. The power wires came out very nice. Soldered up and shrink wrapped well with a couple of cool tricks I learned.





















All in all, it came out beautifully. Super low resistance, few connections, and highly efficient design. Only thing I need now are fuses. I'd blown a few fuses, and these were the only ones I had left. The blocks worked out perfectly, and are spaced very, very well to accomodate the most surface area contact possible between fuses. They are also stackable.

On a tangent, anyone know where I can find .5" brass bolts? Can't seem to find em anywhere. I used stainless, but I'd rather use brass, as a principle sort of thing.

Feedback goes in here!!
