Do not remove all of the wires now. Purchase a car stereo that will fit your car. Attach the antenna wire. Remove and reattach the wires in the following order: the positive wires, then the negative wires, then the ground (black) wire. Remove the front dash panel according to the directions in your owner's manual. Consider putting all of the screws into a small plastic baggie to make sure that they do not get lost during the car stereo installation process. Unscrew and pull out your car stereo unit and look at the back. One of the easiest ways to save money on car stereo systems is to install them yourself.
Disconnect the negative battery cable so that you can work safely. Slide the new car stereo into the mounting bracket. Slide the stereo into place but do not screw it in until you've tested it.For the installation, you'll need your owner's manual, a screwdriver and / or socket wrench set, and wire strippers. For some people, a great-sounding car stereo system is an essential piece of equipment. Then attach the constant and ignition power wires.There's nothing like driving down the street and listening to music with the windows down. You need them as a map to help you attach the new car stereo system. Your manual should show exactly how to do this.When testing the stereo, use the balance features to listen to each car stereo speaker and make sure that it's working properly. You will either see one plug that is attached to all of the wires or a bunch of wires that are individually attached to the stereo. The ground wire should be attached to metal.It's also a good idea to look for a system that is wired specifically for your make and model if you can find one.
If you do not have a plug, you'll need to wire it manually. It will save you a lot of time and effort. If you have a plug, all you need to do is remove it and plug in the new one.If everything's working right, go ahead and screw in your new stereo, put on some music, and enjoy!
We all know that buying more of something usually gets you a better price per unit in almost every industry out there. In the wire and cable industry buying more will definitely get you a better price but it may not always be the best option for you or your company.
Many suppliers of 8 AWG THHN electrical wire have started to cut it to the exact length the customer needs in order to avoid waste on each job. Yes, the installer or contractor will get a better price per foot if they buy 500 feet instead of 120 feet but how much waste will that yield? It’s going to be different for each job but once that spool of 500 feet gets down to 80 feet it’s going to be much more difficult to find a use for it. The spool might sit there for quite some time and, in the mean time, you have to order another spool of 500 feet in order to prepare for the next job you have.
Buying online has become much more common than 5 years ago. Many online suppliers of 8 AWG THHN wire will let you buy to the exact foot you need on their website. Some even offer free shipping to anywhere in the USA once you hit a certain dollar amount. The main thing to be sure of is the length of your run because there’s nothing worse for you or the supplier when you wind up a couple of feet short and need to return the spool you have in order to get the right length.
8 AWG electrical wire is typically used by electricians, contractors and installers. The most common colors are black, red, white and green. Green is usually designated as the ground wire instead of a bare copper ground because when it’s being used outdoors it needs the protective insulation to resist water and gasses that it will come in contact with.
Suppliers that will cut 8 AWG electrical wire to length for you will most likely cut Romex®, UF-B cable and MC cable to length as well. The fact is that suppliers cut multiple lengths per day while contractors only order a couple of times per month. The higher turnover allows the suppliers to have minimal waste at the end of each month and be able to supply their customers with exactly what they need. It makes life easier for the installer to be able to price the full job without having to factor in waste.
Caring for an Akita bitch during pregnancy is basically commonsense. She should be watched carefully and made as comfortable and happy as possible. You should ensure that she has a dry bed, ample clean drinking water and regular feeds of good quality. For the first five weeks she will probably behave quite normally. She may have her “off” days. She may be extra hungry. She may display a slight change in temperament and be more careful how she carries herself, but so long as she is obviously healthy and happy, that is all that matters.
As soon as you suspect that she is pregnant, it is a good idea to contact your vet so he can enter the date of the expected birth in his diary and monitor the bitch’s progress. Akitas do not carry much water with their puppies, nevertheless a considerable amount of weight will have to be carried as the weeks progress. It is generally not advisable to give lots of extra food in the early weeks. Experience has taught us that overloading a bitch with food will put weight on her puppies, and she will also put on extra weight. This causes two problems. Firstly, she will not exercise so well, and so she will not be keeping her muscles toned up. Secondly, the puppies will be fat, which means they will be larger and will experience a more difficult passage down the birth canal. And when they are born, they will be fat and lazy.
It is far better to have an active mother and lean, vigorous puppies, who will fight to get to the teats to fill themselves with that all-important mother’s first milk. We have found the best policy is to feed a balanced diet with an increase in food after about five weeks. Naturally the future mum will be hungrier, but rest assured that whatever food you give to her she will pass on to her unborn babies before she takes it herself. She is a natural in parental care. Additives in the form of calcium and perhaps iron are a good idea, again after the five-week deadline. These days most foods are carefully balanced and numerous additives should not be needed. Indeed, the general view is that they can do more harm than good. But if the bitch suggests that she may have a deficiency, you should take her to the vet so that proper tests and analysis can be undertaken.
Akita bitches “hide” their puppies very well until at least five weeks, more often six. They may show no signs at all that they are pregnant, and this can be extremely annoying to the owners, who obviously want to know if they are to expect a litter so they can make the necessary preparations. Probably the best indication is a swelling of the bitch’s teats. From as early as three weeks these can “pop”, or enlarge slightly and become pinker in appearance. In our experience this is the only “sure” sign. Ultra-sound scanning can also give a definite diagnosis, but this is costly and sometimes the hair on the bitch’s side or underside has to be removed.
Your bitch may show signs of thickening in the rib or loin earlier, but it is most unlikely. Akita Inu bitches do not generally carry their babies across their loin like most breeds. They hide them under their ribs and then later “drop” them and carry them in the belly, rather like a cow carries its calf. Whether you observe positive signs or not, it is wise to contact your vet and book the expected date of birth into his diary so he will be available if necessary.
Seven weeks into the pregnancy, introduce the bitch to her whelping place. A suitably sized box should be prepared and the absolute minimum measurements for this would be about 4ft 6ins by 3ft. This will allow the bitch to lie fully stretched on her side. The box can certainly be larger, but not so big as to allow the puppies to crawl away from their mother and so get lost. Make sure the bitch is happy with the box and its position. After a few days she will welcome the peace, quiet and solitude of this area and so will accept it as the natural place when the time comes to give birth. If she is at all unhappy you must give in to her and make other arrangements. She probably has a good reason for not wanting things the way you do. So listen to her and adjust. She may accept the box, and then on the day of whelping, she changes her mind and wants to go somewhere else. Again, you must give in to her request. She may return to the box after she has had her first puppy, but let her decide. It is worth all the upheaval to have a happy, contented bitch who comes through her pregnancy successfully and delivers her puppies safely, without causing you – – or herself – – any undue anxiety.
