    Junk Yard Thread, Never ending

    Sad about the light cloisonne blue convertible. I reckon that's Jakes old car that he sold to a kid that trashed it?
  3. Too bad these don't fold in, even by hand would have been great.
  4. Good luck. Hope somebody doesn't snatch it while you're waiting.

    Acc ON not there, or is broken?

    Thank you very much. I could never have figured that out. I was always trying the other direction.

    Guys, i searched, even on Google. Nothing found at all. My 94 cutlass supreme convertible doesn't play the radio unless i turn the car ON. Shouldn't the ignition have an Acc ON position before the the battery light comes ON?

    Hahaha! You picked up on the name quickly! It is the only one in Botswana (probably the only one in Southern Africa). I get looks and compliments everywhere I go. Plus the fact that the steering wheel is on the wrong side ! That makes it hard to pass on the 2-lane roads, but thankfully the 3.4L engine makes it quick work once i get a look around the car in front of me . You might have seen the top on my gallery pictures. The original top was black, but i figured since it was gonna be living in the African sun, white would be better since it reflects the heat. Thanks for the compliment.

    As some of you might have picked up from some of my posts, I shipped the convertible to Botswana a couple of years ago. It is now truly a summer car. I only get to drive it in December / January, in the Southern African savanna summer. I wish i could stay for 3 months at a time, or at least till the American mid-west winter is over. It's brutal getting on the plane in Johannesburg, South Africa, at 96 degrees F, and landing in New York at 7 degrees F! This year i had hoped to install my Alpine CDE-164BT head unit, along with 2 Alpine Type X 10inch woofers in a ported box, and 2 PDX-M12 amps, a PDX-F4, and infinity kappa perfect 6.1 speakers on the doors. I had infact taken a KnuKonceptz 0 gage amp kit with me when i went in 2017. But the installation didn't happen because i took on the project of building cabinets for my parents' house in the village. Didn't manage to finish that, so didn't even touch the sound system. Will try again at the end of 2019.

    Anyone installed a set of components in their car?

    Well, I'm back from the tropics, and I am sorry to announce that I was not able to install my sound system. I got very busy with the kitchen cabinet build, i didn't have any time to work on the sound. I will try again in this coming December.

    I haven't done mine yet. But I will be installing my Infinity kappa perfect 6.1 in the doors of my convertible. I will be mounting the tweeters right next to the mid-bass speakers. Wind noise will be a real issue for me, so no pillar or dash pods. I'm doing this within the next 4 weeks.
