DIY: Wrapping Rims in Matte Black Vinyl
I wanted to try a new style for my winter rims, and instead of pinting them
i wrapped them in vinyl, Costs about $10 a rim.
http://www.ebay.ca/itm/321097538225 This short video shows you how to wrap
a rim quickly(sped up 3x), There really is no downfall to doing this, faster and cheaper then painting, the
vinyl only weighs .4 ounces or about 50 grams. and thats spread out
throughout the rim and if you dont like it then just peal it off. If you
want more info or you want to buy some vinyl contact me at
email@example.com Or come contact me at 8thcivic.com please don't send a
message though youtube, I don't come here often.
Check it out on ebay for the full written DIY.

Supercharged Cadillac Rezcalade EXT 10,000 Watt ZAPCO System
This is a project i finished back in 2006. It is Chickens '04 SMD Cadillac
"Rezcalade" EXT. As seen in the pages of Truckin' Magazine September 2006.
Click this link to see it
Its a long story, but basicly Chicken hit a curb so hard with this SUV, it
folded the wheel like a taco (search "taco job 26" on youtube) and
destroyed 2 wheels. They were out of production and we couldn't find
replacements anywhere. It took about a year of us debating what to do next
before i realized, like a dummy, that they are 3 piece 26's. That means as
long as the center is good, the rim is fixable! I had both of the wheels
repaired by my wheel guys at AZA ( http://www.azaforged.com ) So after
replacing the wheels, i got him some new tires. Kumho Tires SUCK so i got
Pirelli 30/26's for it. I also replaced all the rear batteries and the
front one with a XS Power D3100 ( http://www.wccaraudio.com ) . The old
alternators were removed and replaced with Mechman Alternators, 300 amps
each. Also used was a new Gates HD belt - a MUST for multiple H.O. Alt
situations. I tuned the system with the new DD-1 and for now, its back to
normal. We plan on doing more, but only time will tell.
The reason its being flatbedded, because i know someone will ask (yes, even
after i said it twice in the video) is because i cant drive two cars by
myself. Its easier for us just to call our boys at Tow Pro and transport
it. For now, its back home, running nice, sounding good......and Chicken
The system Consists of:
Audio Control Processing
2 Zapco 4kw Amps
1 Zapco C2K 4.0
4 RE MT 15" Subs
Rockford Fosgate Mids/Highs
2 Mechman 300amp Alternators
5 XS Power D3100 Batteries
Lexani 26" Wheels
Baer 6 Piston Brakes

Delicious Candy Blue SMD Escalade Bagged on 26's (Update 6) Blacked Out
The weekend is here and i decided to snatch up Chickens Caddy from the
paint shop (Autobody Workshop, Sacramento, California) for a few days to
get it all put back together again. Since you have seen it last, i added
brand new LED Tail Lights, tinted Headlights, and got the door panels and A
pillar's back in place. Roy Devore, the man responsible for laying down
the Candy, also shot the tail lights for me with a blend of clear with
black. It worked out great! After i got the system up and running, i
called Mike at Tint 2k in Sacramento to come by and black out the windows.
We ended up going with 5% all the way around on the 4 doors (i previously
did the rear 3 myself) and 30% on the windshield. He wont drive this too
much so its fine. Its fine anyway, its not as dark on the inside as it
looks. You can see fine. Anyway, i just thought i would show you guys how
this thing is turning out and what it looks like in the California sun. I
still have work to do, i am adding Ridetech Titanium Shocks on all 4
corners starting next week. I also have a few nick nacks to handle and it
should be ready to finally go home!
Just in case you didnt know what those amps in the back are, they are 2
Rockford Fosgate T15k Amplifiers. There is 8 Fi BTL 18's and all Rockford
Fosgate Mids/highs. Windows PC 10.2" Touchscreen and more....basicly the
It is sitting on custom one-off, staggered 3 Piece Wheels by AZA (
http://www.azaforged.com ) wrapped in Pirelli P-Zero 295/25/26" Tires.
Upoholstery is by Sean Kat, Kat Kustom Interiors Sacramento. I did some of
it myself, but the stitching was all Sean Kat.
Brakes by Wilwood: 16" Rotors 6 Piston calpers front , 14.5" 4 Piston
Paint of course by Roy Devore Roy@autobodyworkshop.com if you have any

2015 Cadillac Escalade Luxury Review
In today's video I give detailed tour of the all-new 2015 Cadillac
Escalade 4wd Luxury showing exterior, engine and interior.
For the fourth generation Escalade, the SUVs share the same interior and
exterior DNA as the Suburban/Tahoe and Yukon/XL/Denali. The only difference
is that the front fascia has been completely redesigned featuring the same
Cadillac signature frontal design, while the LED taillamps that are located
in the back now extend from the bumper all the way up to the top of the
tailgate. The cargo space was reduced from 109.8 in (2,789 mm) to 94.2 in
(2,393 mm) on the standard base and from 137.5 in (3,492 mm) to 120.5 in
(3,061 mm) on the ESV in order to allow an additional 1.7 inches of
headroom and 45.3 inches of legroom in the front while reducing the
third-row legroom space to 24.8 inches from 25.6 inches. GM's 6.2-liter
EcoTec3 V8, good for 420 horsepower and 460
pound-feet of torque, mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, is the
only engine offered, along with a new coil-over front suspension and
five-link rear setup, a wider track, variable-assist electric power
steering and Cadillac's Magnetic Ride Control system with Tour and Sport
modes. The interior now boast a hand-crafted design that features
cut-and-sewn and wrapped materials, with wood trim options chosen for
elegance and authenticity. The dashboard was also updated, and the Cadillac
CUE system is added as a standard feature.
