We had a guy in Basic who's last name was Schwartz, one of the Drill Sergeant's would constantly go looking for him saying he wished he had him as a private in his platoon then proceed to yell out "Use the Schwartz!" constantly to him and everyone else around.

I've had this happen before with an aftermarket head unit. It turned out I had grounded the head unit poorly, so I found a new spot on the inside of the firewall and re-grounded it there. No more odd noises!

The hum only happening when you get on the throttle is most likely related to the alternator spinning up as the engine RPM increases.

It just happened yesterday, contacting them today.

Make sure the power wire is run down one side of the car and the rca's on the other. Check your amp ground too,
Make sure it's to bare metal. I grounded my amps to the rear coilover mount, just need to scrape off some paint to get a good ground.

So, I've had some back issues for about 20yrs. Well, I've recently discovered that I'm having even more back issues and I'm pin pointing it to the seats in Dory. The stock seats were not made for wide butts. I'm actually sitting on top of the bolsters. I need some seats with a more flat cushion.

Anyone have something for sale/trade?

Otherwise, I was looking at the Recaro Expert M or the Corbeau Sport Seat.
Any hook ups on seats?

Never been,but I looked at both the Peoria lot & this one in street view. Frankly I dont know how theyre still in business because I dont know where customers park.. It's only 1 night. We'll figure it out.. If nothing else,across the street along the edge of the mall lot..

That sucks man, I broke my back about 7 years ago and it gives me a lot of problems as well. Hope you find some seats that suit you. Can always have some padding taken out of the stock seats too.

I was thinking about that. I could trim down the bolsters to flatten the seat some more.

It would be nice to do the cushions exactly to fit. Make it great for a road trip for sure.
