2010 Caliber "Dirty Deeds" (Rebuild starts pg.13)

Recommended Posts

Alright finally the day has come to start on this thing. I'm gonna start with talking about the name. My buddy that passed funeral was today. He was the one friend That when I would show YouTube videos to and talk about what I was gonna do didn't think it was "stupid" or "retarded". He actually thought it was cool and would always ask when he was gonna get to see my windshield doin the wave lol. He was one of a kind and a great dude. My nickname for him was Dirty Deeds (yes the AC/DC song). It fit him very well. So no matter what I was starting this build and log on the day of his funeral. This will be my little memorial and the way I keep him with me.

By the way, this is not meant to be sad at all. Death is a part of life and we all know that. This is just my way of coping and keeping his memory alive.

So on to the build :

CES 270 amp alt

K2 73 AH lith/ with possible XS upfront

4 FI X 10s

Ampere Audio 3800.1

2 Ampere 75.4

Nendo door speaker w FT1s

80 PRS

Anything else I decide to throw in this POS

 

Also this car I bought to throw a ton of miles on driving back and forth to work. It is not a show car and never will be. This is just for me to play with. I will get it metered so I don't sound like camshairtricks but I will not be competing with THIS SETUP.

So today I just wanted to get started so I went to Home Depot and bought a few things.

Just a pic of the car. I already had the headliner down before I remembered to take a pic.

Sorry for your loss, bro.

 

I'll be tuned in for this build, i have a caliber I'll be putting a system in(finally) once it warms up here.

Were you able to actually get the headliner out of the car?

i want to wrap mine in black suede but ive been told you have to take the windshield out of the car in order to get the headliner out.

No broke I wasn't actually able to pull it out. I was hoping it would slide out the back but it wouldn't come out. Pain in the ass to be honest.

 

Thank you everyone for the sentiments.
