  1. I love VW's. One of my best builds was in a 1992 Wolfsberg Jetta, cherry red with 5 spoke magnesium rims. Such a fun car to drive. Welcome to the forum.
  2. I'm in the same boat. I just put new tires on my truck and a ball joint failed right away.
  3. Finally got my Ski-doo tuned up for speed. It needed new spark plugs, belt and a carb cleaning, but damn its fast now!
  4. I use and recommend Freud and CMT bits. Pricey, but good.
  5. They are famous for catching on fire. I personally have observed a parked Aerostar catch fire (electrical) and burn completely. Its gotta be one of the most lemon vans ever made. I wouldn't recommend installing a stereo in one.
  6. My suggestion: get rid of the tweeters altogether. I have never liked the way rear dash tweets "splash" off the rear window glass. This reflection also naturally amplifies the high end notes which will detract from your front stage and could cause ear fatigue. This is just a suggestion though, I like music to be eq'd down in the high range but I know that others may prefer a "brighter" more sparkly sound in the high range frequencies.
  7. I just put this awesome synthetic oil in my 2000 Silverado 4x4. All I gotta say is wow! My truck runs smoother, quieter, shifts better and is faster. I used a K&N performance gold filter and 5w-30 Royal Purple HMX. My truck has 200,700 miles on it and it runs like new. I did spend about three times as much as I usually do, but it was worth it. I can tell my truck is faster now.
  8. That's a good deal on that Roadkill.
  9. Yes, install a fuse inline on your power wire that connects the alt. output to the batt. positive post. Coincidentally, I just put new cables, battery and alternator in my Silverado yesterday. I used welding cable and Knukonceptz lugs and fuse block. I don't recommend the bassik fuse block, but the KNU lugs work fine. The truck works way better. Good luck.
  10. I'm sorry to hear that LT. Winter really sucks this year. I haven't even gone snowmobiling or ice climbing yet. All I do is fix/wrestle with my trucks to keep them running and starting. The batt. charger and block heaters are my best friends right now. Getting my 4x4 Silverado worked on today. When I get it back, I am going to do something fun for a change.
  11. I figured you had something there. My brother actually noticed looking over my shoulder. Those dark blue cables look really sharp, BTW.
  12. That angle brace hovers menacingly above the exposed positive post/hot end. Hope that doesn't become an issue; better strap that battery down...
  13. At least Amazon's good for something...
  14. In all my 15 years of car audio, I have never smelled voice coils burning. Your friend needs to tune his ears so that he can hear distortion and so he can listen to those more knowledgeable than him. Gains need to be set properly. OTOH, the manufacturers and stores will continue selling him more gear. They don't care if he blows stuff up after he buys it. Sad to hear about this sort of thing. When I help my friends with car audio, I tell them to throw out everything they thought they knew about it or I wont help them.
