72 Chevelle System Fix - Worst install (by a shop) ever - REDO - FINISHED - Page 23 6/17/13

Recommended Posts

props for redoin the test, luckily those vortech's have an alt easy to get to like you said...could have been worse, I'm sure you would have hesitated redoing this if this was on the lexus lol!

believe me, the ease of this alternator install played a big factor in whether or not i was going to redo the video. I am just glad the amp rack is still hanging outside of the car so i could still get to the wires. Hard to do is one thing, a pain in the ASSSSS like my ISF, i think i woulda just let them talk and just deal with it LOL -

Mentioned this a few pages back, Please tell your friend that he needs to take it back to the "installers" that did the work in the first place and get a reaction video.

I love car audio so much because I will never be done. I can never win, and I will never get it finished or perfect. It always has me coming back for more, I can never get my fill of it, but I get what I need.

Finally got the interior back in it...

but before i post the pictures, let me explain a few things.

The seats are dirty, but they ARE getting reupholstered so they are white'er again. In fact he is planning on new bucket seats, which will be SICK IMO. The door panels are back on but i did not have anything to clean up and PROPERLY re-die his arm rests. He got the new cushions for the arm rest but the plastic piece below it is dingy, old and just ugly. It needs cleaning up and to be re-shot. The headliner and fabric closest to the rear window WILL be replaced soon. So you see those little quirks, just don't blame me. I did the system and also reinstalled new panels for him, but there is only so far i can go with it. He will need an upholsterer for the rest of the interior.

Also, one last thing, i STARTED to tune the system today but i kept getting company stopping by. I need to concentrate and not be bothered when i do it. So i left. Went swimming at the pad. LOL - i will try again tomorrow. He picks it up on Monday when he comes home from camping and then i will make the final video of him rolling off into the sunset with it :D

that being said, here is the pics.

Hey Steve... I noticed in the front side by side view picture of the alternators, that the alternators had different pulley diameters. Did you have to swap the pulleys?

Watching you transform that crappy ass install into the beautifully detail oriented work of art that it's become, is amazing. Keep on keeping on, and happy Fathers Day.
