i think it's from a 94 4door s10 blazer. it's too big to fit in a regular cab right without a lot of work. so i sold it to a friend of mine and i'm gonna get one out of a tahoe since theyre flatter and shorter.

I know they're cracked and I know they're crooked.
Sorry it took so long to post 'em up, they're still not aimed correctly yet.

Yeah the middle amp is over the ports, got about an inch and a half between them, more than enough room for the air to move, and it keeps the amp cool lol.
No new subs yet, they're comin this spring/summer along with all new front stage, processing, and possible headunit.

Thanks, yeah Morimoto mini's.

They got in a bind as I was screwing them in (don't quite fit in the headlight buckets, had to cut 'em, guess I didn't cut 'em enough?) and apparently it was too much of a bind. I'm gonna buy some cheap housings with plastic lenses and swap the lenses out, plastic is better with a projector anyway from what I read.

Hey quick, nice progress while I've been gone. Liking the projectors. If you get a new headunit, I would gladly like to have your old one. I miss my Alpine.

Re: 1986 GMC Sierra Classic LWB build

Thanks man. I'm loving driving with projectors.

Don't think I'll be getting rid of the 9887, I like it too much.

Expect new subs, 2 alternators, another battery or 2, and a possible in truck Mac Mini build coming this summer.

Re: 1986 GMC Sierra Classic LWB build

Planned to get a lot accomplished on the truck today, instead all I did was tighten some wire connections, find out my camaro tach is a v6 tach, and hang out with the girlfriend some.

Re: 1986 GMC Sierra Classic LWB build

I had a 9885 which is basically identical. I have been wanting one bad since I had to let mine go. Girlfriends slow things down, unless she is a "dont mind getting my nails dirty" kind of girl, then they're alot of help.

Re: 1986 GMC Sierra Classic LWB build

Go ahead and get a 9887 if you get another one, so many more features.

And I don't mind her slowin' things down some, it's always good to spend some time with her. But she is a "don't mind getting my nails dirty" kinda girl. She even washes my truck :P

Re: 1986 GMC Sierra Classic LWB build

Small update to show you I'm still alive :P

Picked up a 2 channel amp for midbass


Reconed the DD 2515's


Done!


Running the subs on half power until I can get a second alternator on the truck and a second battery.

Re: 1986 GMC Sierra Classic LWB build

Reconed both subs because I blew 'em up, yeah by myself. Wasn't that hard, just takes patience.

Haven't touched the headlights since I put the projectors in, still need to replace the glass front lens with plastic. I just hate these headlight buckets so I don't want to touch them.

Re: 1986 GMC Sierra Classic LWB build

pulled a 2nd run of 1/0 from the battery to the distribution block this week, hooked up my capacitor, tightened some grounds and added lock washers. Voltage is only dropping to 13.4 now. Big improvement. Oh I also have 2 alternators now, will add some pictures this weekend.

Re: 1986 GMC Sierra Classic LWB build

Well it's been a while since I updated. But it's time to sell my truck. It's just getting to expensive to daily drive. One day I plan to buy another square body as a platform to build on. There's tons of these out there, I'll have another one day, which will possibly become a crew cab short bed.

Hey could you repost the pictures of the projector install, I'm thinking about doing this with some 7" round lights.

Re: 1986 GMC Sierra Classic LWB build

Only pictures I took






Basically had to take the lens off the housing, then I took the projector apart and took the lens off of it, stuck it on the inside of the housing, drilled the 4 holes for the mounting screws, bought longer screws, then put the back of the projector on the back of the housing, etc. Sealed it all up with a bunch of peel'n'seal. Haven't had a problem, they still work.

edit: also had to modify the reflector inside the housing, it was removable in these, since they had an odd little hidden parklight bulb.
