  1. I got my sub today, my friend had told me it was blown and wouldn't play so he gave it to me. It appears to be brand new, not a single scratch on the motor, looks as though it had never been mounted. I gave it a good lookover and there's no coil rub, but the suspension is a little floppy. What I found was the positive leads on both coils had burned and disconnected midway between the terminals and the former. I was wondering how much a recone kit would run for this sub? It's an older version, it has single flat stitched leads, domed dustcap, and no spacers between the motor and basket. If someone could get a hold of me with some info it would be appreciated. Thanks!
  2. What I've done in the past was lay a bead of clear silicone along the edge and put C clamps all the way around. I've also 'torched all sides of the layers together and it worked pretty nicely as well. Just make sure that there is no air pockets between the layers, otherwise it's junked. Lol
  3. I actually thought about something like this at work the other day. Lol. I would probably start making my own dustcaps out of ABS plastic, mold a very nasty looking knife or spiked club to the center, and aim for the noggin at full excursion!
  4. Thought I'd bring this up, about a year ago I was installing the new deck in my truck. I had to rig something up to fix the cut harness and find the right wires, so I was out there until dark with my flashlight. I stepped out to grab my diagram from the house, came back in, and went to work. About 5 minutes into wiring, I start hearing something moving around in the driver's seat. I didn't think much of it because my sister had a dark colored cat, and he would always hang around while I'm working. But I noticed this cat was a little too big. A possum was sitting, just looking at me, that whole time while I didn't even notice him! Message intercepted. Shut garage door + shut truck door = no Possum. Have you ever experienced an event like this? Lol
  5. I'm looking for a fairly cheap motor. I want to build a test sub to play around with so I thought I'd build from the ground up! I plan on running around 1,000 - 1,500w RMS daily. Possibly D1 or D2, haven't decided yet. Looking to keep it under $100, I've already got a basket on the way and some adhesives. LMK what you have!
  6. Considering different routes for the 'Rolla. Would like to keep the back seat, but would also like a wall there....

  8. I have to admit, I've been slacking on getting pictures of my Corolla posted. The car that was totaled by hail damage no longer has a single dent on it, ANYWHERE! As of now, it is sitting with three coats of primer and is just about ready for paint. A friend of mine in Conway Springs has a paint stall he said I could use for a weekend, but in order to use it I have to get the car running first. I have already ordered my entire valve train seal kit ('00 - '02 Corollas with the new 1ZZFE motor had a notorious problem with this) and will be buying my first XS Power batt soon. In the meantime, I literally sat in my garage for 3 hours, looking at the car and wondering what I could do to set it apart from any other 9th generation Corolla. It's hard to explain or feel what I mean without a picture, but my computer is acting up. Lighting- Stock headlights, blacked out, with 8000k HID Blacked out tail lights Fog lights with 5000k HID Wheels/Suspension- Flushed & stanced. I am having a tough time finding springs that will give me much more than a 1.5 - 1.7" drop front and rear. I want to run 17" wheels, also blacked out (maybe bright green accents ). I'm thinking a 7 - 7.5" wide rim with the stretched tire. Call it gay, whatever, but I've NEVER seen a flushed & stanced Corolla in my city. Only Civics and Teggies. Body- As of right now, the car is completely debadged. In the center of the trunk between the tail lights used to sit the circular Toyota emblem. Well, I was cruising around eBay the other day and found an RF badge... I looked into it and wouldn't ya know, the measurements are the EXACT size of the OEM Toyota Emblem, so that will take it's place! Body (cont'd)- I'll honestly say, I really don't care for body kits. For a really clean appearance, I'm going to keep all the body components stock, BUT do a full lip kit. The most extreme I might go is filling in the gaps where one panel meets another, sorta like a unibody. After all, I am going for a flushed look with this car. Paint (when ready)- This one I am really torn on. I don't know if I want to keep the car's original gloss black, or if I want to go with the two-tone Gloss black & Candy Apple Green to sorta flow with my interior. The line dividing the two wouldn't be straight, but instead go along the bottom of the windows, and slightly curve upward to contour with the front and rear windshields. Once again, it's hard to describe without a picture. If anyone has any suggestions or comments, feel free to let me know. I get paid tomorrow, and I am going accessory shopping!
  9. In my Corolla, the headliner was really easy to remove. The dome light popped right out with a flat tip screwdriver, and basically just fell right out when I removed the pillar trim, the trim on the door jamb between the front and rear doors, and rear deck pillar trim. Don't quote me on this, but I believe there is an adhesive specifically for headliners. I used some kind of 3M adhesive (don't remember which kind) and basically laid my new material over the stripped headliner and used a flexible piece of plastic to smooth out wrinkles. It worked great for about 3 months, and then my headliner started to sag from the rapid Kansas temperature change. Lol. 32 degrees one day, 87 the next.
  10. I cannot personally vouch that this car is 100% clean because I haven't seen it yet. But from the pictures of it, it looks like it's in great shape inside & out with no major damage. The post does not say how many miles are on it, but most of the mid '90s Camaros I've seen in my area are running between $5000 and $8,000 and this one has a ton of spare parts as well as an SS hood and SS intake conversion
  11. I'm looking into adding a '96 Z28 Camaro into the family. The guy who posted it said he did a dash swap from a '98, and I don't know if he swapped an LS into it due to the different computers or if he kept the LT. Anyway, it's in pretty good shape. Already dynamatted, has minor things needing replaced, minor clear coat fading on bumper and quarter panel, and a solid motor and tranny. The only problem is that it needs a BCM (Body Control Module) to run. He said that it would need to be bought new (I found out I can get a used one, but I have to have the VIN number from the car it came from) and I would have to take it to a GM dealership so they can program it via OBD II port. All in all, does anyone know what this would cost to replace? And for $3,000 obo, does it sound like a good buy?
  12. That looks like it'll be a lot easier, and it would help me clean up the main battery a bit too. It's hard enough to shut my hood with my Big Three done lol. Gotta put my fab skills to work and lower the battery tray a bit as well. As the whole build sits right now, the box is becoming the biggest issue. I've never seen a Corolla with four 15's in it, and I want to do it! I'll PM you some pics and measurements of what I'm working with so far, going out to take the pics now.
  13. The front batt is a D1200, XS recommended it as the main battery and said it's what many of their Corolla enthusiasts use.
