Quick little 65 Mustang now supercharged??? 4 AB 6.5 subs


Recommended Posts

I have recently acquired a 65 mustang from a close friend who helped me build my first motor.... now with a bug i got this thing for next to nothing as a pile of shit i will find a picture of how it sat in my garage 2 years ago before it was mine.....

so 2 years later its back and its mine http://www.stevemeadedesigns.com/board/public/style_emoticons/#EMO_DIR#/yahoo.gif

This will be a slow build but here it goes

i started by sanding off about 8 layers of paint i didnt relize it was possible to have that much paint on a car http://www.stevemeadedesigns.com/board/public/style_emoticons/#EMO_DIR#/lol.gif at least its a ford and they circled the problem

but on to the car

from the multi color (Green back and blue front) it went to a rattle can flat black then i got it for the spray gun.... and now my first paint job

so onto the pics

apart:

well first the spot where it all went down... yes its pretty on one side and ugly on the other but i cant afford a $5000 i mean that is way more than i paid for the car

haha yes its ugly http://www.stevemeadedesigns.com/board/public/style_emoticons/#EMO_DIR#/pardon.gif

had to make the hood fit tho http://www.stevemeadedesigns.com/board/public/style_emoticons/#EMO_DIR#/trink40.gif

reserved for a few more comming after buffing and assembly of the stereo which will be?

help me decide i got some equipment around like a DC 5k and an sd 8k :peepwall:

Idea 1

4 8s (dc 8s )in the back deck? Port and subs up built inside car, requires gringing and modifing of the back seat... subs on passenger side, port drivers

Idea 2

10's (xls maybe) in a bandpass ported up threw the back deck? Subs would face rear of car towards glass window, port up threw deck so u could possiably see the magnet too I like this one

Idea 3

1 12 bandpass? I havea re hc magnet old school, with a dc lvl 5 12" recone, dual 1.4 on the dc 5k... right now it handles my sd 8k at 4 ohms quite well, in a box built for an 18 for my temp setup in my daily

8" tline? Would be sub up port up in back deck, would be light and pretty damn cool

1 lvl 5 15?, heavy but loud I have 15" recones comming but I would entertain using one for this or getting another.... I have no clue how I would fit it in the trunk, facing up port forward...

same with the 18

1 lvl 5 18?

Idea 4

Wall the backseat?

Once again a million options.... only thing a wall would be pretty heavy, but depending I could make a "light" wall

Or put my 2 lvl 5 15s in it on my sd 8k, or try to get another 5k and run 2 strapped at 1 ohm....yes I got batts, I would have to get h/o alt or build double or tripplebracket with new motor

about 10 cubic fee to play with ish

2 18s? lvl 5s?

2 15s" lvl 5s ?

4 12s? (xls) ?

I love those cars !

:drinks:

Lot of work to do on it though.

2 10's or 12's should be enough. Don't go too far on the audio with such a collector / classic car.

You could sell your 2 big ampsand get a complete nice system with the cash.

Good luck with your build.

Focal ES 100 K in front doors, and Dayton RS 180 for midbass under the front seats.

2 SSA DEMONS 10" subs, in a 2.6 ft3  ported box. SecondSkin Damplifier on front doors, and Luxury Liner Pro for the cargo area.

Looks great so far man, if i were you i would do more of an sq build with like what was said above and go like 2 10's or 12's lots of deadener, and some real nice mids and highs. What is the powertrain looking like?
