  2. Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    Cruising is fun. Glad you enjoyed it Matt. I hope you have some pictures to share.
  3. Today
  4. Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    Not cool. Phone fell out of pocket or bag in MIA. I felt really really helpless. If you havent been to MIA finding someone who can understand you and will give you an honest reply is raaaaaaaare. I got sent to the lost and found incorrectly by >6 people. So many staff that they cluster and chat. I really and sincerely wish that it was acceptle to say "I dont know". Very cool. Someone who spoke next to no English and was cleaning found it and brought it to a desk and I'm whole again. Woot! I'm not sure but my frantic stress levels may have something to do with getting less than 2 hours of sleep last night again. I actually had way more fun than expected. I might do some kind of EDM cruise next time.

    Ok, Went outside during the rain under the shed and snapped a couple of pics. As you can see, this a almost complete stock truck. What I plan to do is take the dash completely apart and make it completely smooth. No air vents, gauges, controls, ect ... Then make cut outs for a HCLD and 8" driver on each side. Should be interesting. Hopefully going to a junk yard and find an extra dash or two to screw up on. LOL

    Dammit !!! Wish I could start on this immediately, but the Phantom part needs to be done first and foremost. Thank you guys for the info !!!

    Thank you for the info. When I decide to move on this, first thing needs to be to rip my dash apart and see what will actually fit. Because actually if everything goes as I’m thinking, There will be an 8” driver directly under the HLCD. Should be interesting.

    Plenty of things to tame on horns. Possible a headunit has that power...but doubtful. Either way you are absolutely right in that the install will help a ton, but the anomalies exist no matter the location.

    I want a new pressure washer.
  14. Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    Doh!
  15. Randal's GMT400 "Phantom Dually" Build

    Yes he was, he split and keep the horns going. I want some under dash horns myself but just found out that I have under dash knee air bags, FTL. Email is info@stevensaudio.com 310-869-4438

    Dammit, Wish I had a Facebook. He’s the one that designed Image Dynamics products ?? Correct ?? I forget shit like this ... Thank you Sir.

    Sean, Thank you. It seems to me (and yes, I’ve demo’d Vehicles with HLCD) that with installation limited to “under the dash” made tuning difficult. I’m thinking up top of the dash just under the windshield would make wonders in tuning. Especially with time alignment. Still don’t figure I would need a processor. I think my head unit should have no problems tuning HLCD. But if I need to upgrade while tuning, I have access to a Helix.

    Yes check out Stevens Audio on Facebook, Eric Stevens still makes the hlcds among other products as well.

    You can always get anything from previous years...just not new, which of course means better deals anyway. Can't say I think you are an HLCD guy, but at the same time I think it would be good for you. Would force you to play more with the dsp which will make everything else you have sound better once you get comfortable with all that can be done.
  20. Randal's GMT400 "Phantom Dually" Build

    I will snap some pics of my dash for you guys to help me come up with something cool.
  21. Randal's GMT400 "Phantom Dually" Build

    A similar post wasn’t put up on another forum and the dreaded question got asked. What’s your plans for Audio ??? LOL So my dumb ass wheels got to spinning and I thought about (since I have no problems cutting this truck) going with a full bodied HLCD setup integrated into the dash. My question is can someone get these any more ??? Please keep in mind this is just a thought and don’t want to get too deep with this at this time. Just seems like something cool to try out. What you guys think ???
  22. Last week
  23. Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    Spent the first half of day 2 on this boat puking my brains out. Didn't even earn it. Lol
  24. Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    I have not. I usually just use the Liquid Ice unless I hand polish, then I just use Meguiars.
  25. Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    I have this polish coming to try. Have you ever used this Ryan? http://www.malcoautomotive.com/Tru_Polish-details.aspx
  26. Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    When I first got it I smelled it in the house like a moron. The wife was not impressed.
  27. Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    Respirator, gloves, and safety glasses. Plus your cloths will smell like the ceramic after you are done.
  28. Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    Harbor Freight has a great DA buffer for around $60. Perfect for a beginner. Eastwood sells a great Norton kit that has all the pads, compound and instructions you need for around $100. These two will allow you to do anything from a color sand and buff to a simple cut and/or polish and was. Check their site for Liquid Ice. I've been using Norton products since my dad threw me in a paint booth 30 years ago. Love them! If you want simplicity, stick with a polish followed by a wax every few months depending on environment. If you want to go the ceramic route, it's highly advisable, but paint correction is necessary before sealing or else you will seal the imperfections below the ceramic. Ceramic also requires a respirator to apply. It has some nasty VOCs. If the manufacturer states you don't need a respirator, it's not ceramic, it's a polymer. The polymers aren't bad themselves, providing nearly the protection of ceramics, but not the longevity.
  29. Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    The ceramic makes a molecular bond with the paint. It literally takes years to wear. Of course gel coat is a bit softer than paint, but I'd guess you'd get a couple years out of it with most wear coming from the surface abrasion with the water.
