The intentional pronunciation would be "Yahh-Mee", retaining the first syllable of Yamaha.

Now, if it doesn't relate to Yamaha than ignore all of that, haha.
Yamy was also taken and yes it was referencing to my Yamaha 624. I could have added a # on the end I suppose but there also it would have to mean something and it got too complicated.

Going to start working for my uncle again next week, he needs more help again and I could use the extra money because owning a house can be expensive haha. Won't be working there very much but assuming I can build a fast as 2 years ago then I'll be making about 24 bucks an hour for some mindless work.

Got everything all finished up today - amp installed and wired up, IP trim/panels reinstalled and got all the initial tweaking done. It's amazing just how much cleaner everything sounds - especially when I don't have to have the bass turned all the way down because the subs were running off the rear speaker feed. Finally putting these amazing speakers to work like how they were meant to.

Amp Installed:



Mic for the head unit is tucked away nicely on the steering column


Everything back together inside the car. Looks so clean there, I'm really happy with how it turned out






Something behind the head unit is ratting - probably one of the many, many cables behind there - so I need to either pull it back out and see, or hopefully reach my hand up back there from the side or below and keep whatever it is from rattling because it will drive me insane. I heard a little "alternator whine" through the speakers, but only at startup, and only before music starting playing - another monitor-type thing. I am just happy to finally have it done.

I now should have no issue hearing my music with the windows down on the freeway, which was a struggle even on max volume before. Having it only up to 3/4 volume was borderline painful, and I only have the gain turned up 1/4 of the way on the amp.

Wife and I busted our asses putting down 43 bags of mulch (the other two will go down tomorrow, after its had time to settle a bit) in the sun and all the heat - really needed it after we didn't get around to it for the last couple years. Amazing just how much of a difference it makes.

Last bit of mulch down, in the patio area - had to clean out all the buildup of dead needles and what not. So much better.

Don't know the last time this car got a proper wash/wax, but I was happy to give it one today!

Would rather be doing that than brake lines on my dads Cadillac all day haha, been working on replacing all the steel lines. Next step is pads and rotors on all 4 wheels when they come in

It was nice to do, and the sun went under a cloud for a while, too - until halfway through applying the wax, of course.

Brake lines are a pain in the ass. I'll need to order pads and rotors for the front of the Cruze here soon, about time to do those, getting near 100k.

Also had to order in an ac compressor for my mom's town car so that will be fun too haha

---------- Post added at 09:42 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:39 PM ----------

Had to get a new rubber brake hose for one of the wheels as well because there's no way that fitting is coming out... my dad is still saving about 1k in shop labor between both cars though so he doesnt mind spending an extra 20 bucks on a brake hose lmao

Yeah, once they're there for a while...yep, they definitely aren't coming out. When I did the rear hard lines (just from the junction at the rubber hose on the axle that goes to the next hard line on the underbody to the wheel cylinder) on the Cav, the nut would turn - but it wasn't separate from the brake line, so those just severed right off the line, but thankfully it was getting new lines since the one was definitely spewing out fluid when you hit the brakes - made a funny "pewwwww" noise too when it did, too.
