Automotive Audio System pt.2/2 (2005 Buick Century)
It's now 2011 & I just got around to installing aftermarket audio components to our 6 year old (2005) Buick Century.
Though there was no issue with the factory system, I decided to finally swap things out anyway.
I added a Clarion head unit, (2) Bass Inferno 6X9's. (2) 15" Cerwin Vega Subs & (1) 3000 watt Quantum Audio amplifier.
Other than the small remote wire & the speaker wire used to bridge the sub-box itself, all 4 gauge cables were used.
I did however run my wiring on the wrongs sides, Which turned the amp upside down and will be eventually corrected for a clean finish. This won't be done until I am satisfied with the sound dynamics. There are still more interior speakers to be installed, which is also why my head unit is not yet mounted.
I recently had an issue with some cheap wiring used for ground within the trunk that melted, so it was replace just before this footage was filmed. Being that I was not too hot (physically) and/or frustrated, i decided to record the aftermath.

Car audio installation test / Club Century CC - "We keep it 100". / Buick Century Car Radio Stereo A
My first several attempts to upload this video, from an Ipod Touch, I was being told that the file was too large, when I know it was'nt. Let's just call it bad. I was'nt sure if anything was left out in the previous parts or not.
This full length also inspired me to begin a Car Club, which I immediately stated verbally "Club Century-We keep it 100"
So as of today, June25th 2011 (Sat. 9:32p.m.), I am officially starting a club under the above stated name. This name will be the brand & "We keep it 100" the slogan. Known, recognized & will recognize worldwide. More Info: coming soon.

History of the Buick Century:
Buick Century is the model name used by the Buick division of General Motors for a line of full-size performance vehicles from 1936 to 1942 and 1954 to 1958, and from 1973 to 2005 for a mid-size car.
The model name Century came about when Buick was designing its first production automobile capable of reaching a speed of 100 mph. The division needed to come up with a name. One of the Buick executives had returned from a recent trip to the British isles and told the other executives that the British referred to going 100 mph as "doing the century". The executives liked the Century name and it stuck.
The Century was sold as the Buick Regal in Japan, as Toyota owns the right to the name Century.
Buick renamed its entire model lineup for the 1936 model year to celebrate the engineering improvements and design advancements over their 1935 models. Buick's Series 40 model range became the Special, the Series 80 became the Roadmaster and the Series 90—Buick's largest and most luxurious vehicles, became the Limited. The Century took the place of the Series 60.
The basic formula for the 1936 to 1942 Century was established by mating shorter wheelbase Buick Special bodies to Buick's most powerful eight-cylinder engine. While the Special was powered by Buick's 233 in³ was rated 93 hp (69 kW) at 3200 rpm, Centuries produced between 1936 to 1942 were powered by Buick's 320 cu in inline-8 at 165 hp, making them the fastest Buicks of the era and capable of sustained speeds of 95 mph plus, earning the Century the nickname "the banker's hot rod."

Replacing a Rack & Pinion Type Inner Tie Rod DIY
Thanks for watching! Rate & comment on this video, then check out my channel & SUBSCRIBE for more DIY auto repair videos. This is a video showing how to replace an inner tie rod on a rack and pinion equipped vehicle. This on is a 1997 Ford Explorer 2 wheel drive. I made a brief reference to a zip tie on the video & didn't explain myself. I used a zip tie in place of the inner bellows boot clamp on the rack.
