I am looking for a 4x10 8 ohm or 10 ohm replacement front speaker.  I already Tapped Jason for the rear, but he is out of the fronts.  Anyone have a good replacement for the front?I am not going full custom at this time.  I had two 15's in the back of my 95 Impala SS with 1,000 watts going to each.  I would need to _drastically_ modify the charging system in this car to go that route, so trying to stay stock at the moment.  Thanks again.--jakeSee More

For sale: 1963 Cadillac front center impact bar $100 + shipping

Posted by Lee Martin on April 3, 2018 at 2:12pm 0 Comments

Offering this newly re-chromed 1963 Cadillac front center impact bar for sale, $100 plus whatever it costs to ship it from Detroit to your location.  

The unit fits perfect on driver's side but does not sit flush on passenger side.  I am told someone needs to take a wooden block and hammer and bang the passenger side lower corner in to make it fit right.  If you know how to do this stuff, this is the piece for you.
