Cool Great white sig page/Worklog

White is sold :( This page will no longer be updated :(

Good bye old girl, you were good to me and I'll miss you..........

I'll leave this page and links for anone who want to do similar things though.


Well,
Thought I'd join my assorted posts together to clean things up a bit and allow the admins to save some space by deleting the redundant posts.

Chrysler Intrepid 2000 ES, 2.7 autostick.





















This machine is meant to be more of an executive transport than a play car.

Smooth, clean, and comfortable. That's the way to do it.



Cheers

BJ

Audio

Audio system layout


Amp rack Ver 1.2 in progress:





Ignore the rat's nest of wires on the trunk floor, that was for prototyping only.

Coming along, slowly. It's damn cold to be working in the unheated garage right now.........

Need to get some wire standoffs to neaten the runs a little further. Maybe I'll turn out some nice aluminum pieces. I'm thinking kind of like the wire loom you can buy for ignition wires. I like things neat and tidy. Occupational hazard I guess (aircraft technician, we like things to stay where they're put and very organized)
I also need to get some solder on 8 gauge wire end terminals to replace the crappy crimp on ones you see in the picture. I forgot to pick them up the other day and I had the crimp on ones in the garage...........

About the inverter, nessesary evil to run the pentium. If I get induced noise, I may try a couple chokes on the power wires.

I must be limbering up too. It's getting alot easier to get in and out of the trunk!

Components Awaiting install:

Mb quart components came today! Can't wait for the weekend!

Pioneer gm6200 amp came today too! Damn weekend is never going to get here.

*UPDATE 10 May 07*

Amps are in, speakers are in (more or less, more wiring to be done),
Unfortunately, the amp rack itself is still raw mdf, I may get a little closer to finishing this weekend......

I got some sail speaker housings from TFC (thanks Ross, you're the best!) and put the tweets there and the mids in the lower door. Careful positioning and it sounds great! I hear sounds in the music I never knew where there. Whole new experience!

Pics comming......comming......

remember, it's very "beta" right now. Still working out placement of items before creating a custom bezel.
Dave- I'll be staying with 5.1 for now. Seems the wife found the visa bill! Gotta build up some credit with her for the next bit! ;)

GPS Screen

Main Screen

MP3 Screen

FM Radio Screen

GPS again

Daytime Main Screen (high contrast)

Good ol' "Bill's" Screen!

Side veiw showing recessed mounting (better daytime visability with touchsrceen overlay)


Obviously, still alot of work to do. But getting there!


Future Plans

Integrated monitors in the seat headrests for the most beautiful girl in the world, my 3 year old daughter. (she's got a portable DVD one on there now)
cheers

BJ

*Update 10 May 07*
Carputer is in a cut down and mounted in a new, fabricated 18 gauge case. Nobody's stealing that sucker either (well, unless they have an impact gun!), I welded studs to the body, and bolted 'er down! Made for a great ground too! Cleared a ground loop problem I was having in prototyping right up!
Stopped into the local yard and picked up al the trunk material out of a wrecked intrepid so I can cover the carputer case and amp rack in matching material. 10 bucks later and a little ripping, I was on my way with more than enough material.

And I have a useable trunk again! Thank goodness, that mess was driving me up the wall! I was ashamed to have people in the car.


Pics soon......

*11 May 07*
Raw case:


That pesky noisy vent when the sub hits, now blocked off:



finished upholstry:

suspension

300m special rear sway bar

300m special/RT front rotors

Michelin hydroedge tires, stock 16's

That's all for now!

Future Plans

Suspension mods to "tighten her up" (no lowering, I drive this car every day). Probably just source out some more R/T 300m/special pieces.

Possibly Boyd Smoothie II wheels, no bigger than 17". I'm really picky about rim choice and appearance. It may be difficult for me to find exactly what I want.

*thinking about the charger wheels now*

Performance

Just a K&N drop in right now!

Future plans:

3.5 HO if one comes along at a decent price. (2.7 hummin' along just fine 'till then, thank-you-very-much!)

*20 May 07*
Thinkin about dual exhaust. Nothing gaudy though, probably along the lines of Bigred's system but with the stock oval single pipe tips tucked in at about the stock location.



I like it, goes very nicely with the vehicle. Same look I'm after.

Other than that, I'm not seeing it.

Still in progress........

Hinges are standard spring loaded cabinet hidden hinges. There's two pins that hold the rack in the closed position.

I may get fancy at sometime in the future and use a linear actuator to raise and lower it. Not high on my "to do" list right now.

Cheers
