Yea, CVT is pretty nice. I have a 2007 Dodge Caliber with CVT and am pretty much addicted. Definitely the way to go.

Oh, and nice work on the riser...

Not one 8 cylinder in the lot. Oh and not necessarily in that order either.

Oh now wait a tick, I guess we technically "own" our sons car since everything is in our name, however he does make the payments. "His" car is a 2003 Cadillac DeVille that has the Northstar V8 in it.

Whew!

Thanks, nothing quite like it is there? I think the smell of a completed theater would be better, but I don't know if I ever have that opportunity!

Glad you like it. I don't know anyone who owns one but would love the opportunity to drive one. I'm still on the fence about the whole electric car thing, kind of like 3D, still not really ready for prime time, but they are making strides all the time. Lots of advantages, but drawbacks too. (Just like everything in life). I would say that the Volt is one of the first "real" contenders but just like any new technology there are teething and growing pains. One day cars (electric and fossil fuel) will be only in the history books and we will teleport to where ever we want to go.

If I were going the electric route though I think I'd pick up this little beauty.

Thanks, the riser was actually easier to get done than car shopping was. I am still not used to the CVT but it is really a leap forward in smoothness and feel.

Hi there RT, the CVT systems in all their guises are pretty good, for about the first 60-80 thousand miles at least. I think long term reliability is not up there with traditional transmissions. I did an advanced driving course in a CVT vehicle and after threshold braking exercises (fast stops without engaging ABS) the transmission holds in the high gear as the system has not spooled down. Something to remember before you pull out into traffic after a sudden stop. Maybe your cars are different... My experience was in a Mitsubishi. They are however, head and shoulders above traditional transmissions for smooth changes and fuel economy. Enjoy your new car. I'm just jealous. My car is one year shy of being from the 20th century!

^^^Good info to know about the reliability issues and the sudden stops/starts I'll keep that in mind, however since Mrs. RTROSE changes/trades about every 20 to 36 months long term issues won't be a problem. Just glad that she doesn't trade in husbands as often as she does vehicles.

Nothing wrong with driving an "older" vehicle, after a while you can actually refer to your ride as a "classic" for that old school feeling!

They have kept pretty close to the "family look" since about 2002-03 till now with some refreshes thrown in for good measure, but I have always thought the Altima was a good looking car.

So here are a couple of pics as promised of our new "baby".

It is a 2.5L SL in Navy Blue with black leather interior. I think it has pretty much every option you can get (I think). The thing that strikes me the most is the CVT (continually variable transmission). The CVT does not have those hard "shift points" built in like a normal transmission. It is just glass smooth from a standstill to your cruising speed. Very slick indeed. It is very quick for a four banger as well. We test drove both the four and six cylinder and while I could tell a difference between the two, Mrs. RTROSE was just as happy with the four. As stated before she is happy with the car so I'm happy with the car.

Regards,

RTROSE

Congratulations! Now wash off all those bugs from the front! Dang warm weather in March.

Just a quick update on my progress.

I am now one plumber visit away from having a functional kitchenette so that is a very good thing. He has to make a few connections and crimps and I should be good to go. Will be very nice to have an operating sink/faucet down there. Need to purchase a microwave to complete the ensemble and all of the basics should be covered.

Still working on carpet options. Been working through a local carpet store and he has had some issues with his sources, sending the wrong samples, no availability, etc, etc.

Soooo.........I'm leaning towards my first choice which is the one in post #1685. I was trying to explore some slightly cheaper options that I would still be happy with. Have not completely thrown in the towel for other options but I'm close as I want to get my riser done.

I also have just simply been enjoying my theater, watching movies, listening to music and loving every minute of it. I still get a grin ear to ear when I am down there. In some respects it is still hard for me to believe it is in my house and not some dream. Corney I know, but how I feel sometimes.

I had a coworker over the other day to "show off" my theater, and I think he was truly impressed and speechless and I was happy to share my experience/theater as well. Fun stuff!

Regards,

RTROSE

As much time and effort as you've put into this build, I'd be surprised if you weren't a little giddy every time you went in there.

Glad to hear you are enjoying it! You might try offering the plumber a free demo of the theater and see if he'll give you a discount

Well actually that kind of backfired as his wife and Mrs RTROSE are friends. She was over the other day and Mrs RTROSE gave her a demo so now she wants her husband to build them a theater in their basement, he thanked me later when he came to do some work.

I'm just glad he didn't up his price!

Funny how things work isn't it?

RT!!! I get back from two months in Europe and your riser isn't done yet??!!! I guess you'll have "finish riser" on your punchlist for years since your theater is fully operational. Not sure what Mrs RTROSE thinks about that!!! LOL! Some friendly ribbing, of course....

Have you selected your carpet yet? I would think that as a CCC (Certified Carpet Counselor) you would have had this wrapped up by now. Or is this similar to the cobbler's kids having no shoes? LOL! Again, just some friendly ribbing. I am glad to see you are finally getting to enjoy the fruits of your labor as much as you can. I can easily see myself doing the same thing once my theater is finished. In fact, I told my wife that I was building my own personal "Fortress of Solitude" so I can go to the theater anytime I want to decompress. I'm sure you could practically hear her eyes rolling though. What can I say? Wives just don't get it!

Looking forward to more updates.

Whoa, wait just a minute. I guy disappears for a few days, doesn't update his thread for a little while and the natives get restless and go bananas.

Work has be absolutely crazy busy with very little recreational time at all.

On the carpet front. I had been working with my regular carpet guy who had gotten a new supplier with some additional theater themed carpet. I looked at the samples and requested an actual sample. Well after about a week and a half I received the sample which was the wrong one. On top of that I then found out that the new samples had a minimum purchase well over what I was needing. Sooooooo........I went back to my original plan of my two choices. I ended up going with the "Cinema" print and should be here in a couple of weeks. All of that to end up where I started. Oh well no harm no foul.

As for the acoustical treatments I have built three frames so far. Need to sand them down and get them painted black. Just have not had a lot of time to do "fun stuff" with being so busy with work.

I'll post pics when I have picture worthy progress. I promise. Thanks for keeping me from going to the archives an honest to boot.

Well, well, well.......where have all my faithful fans gone. Usually one of you is good for keeping me out of the archives, now that I actually have something to post about nobody is around.

However, will I let that deter me from sharing my progress of late? No sirrrreeee, not by a long shot.

I am not complaining at all (very happy to have a job), but I have not had a day off since Good Friday. Work, work, work........with working so much I have just been plain flat tired to say the least, does not leave a lot of extra energy to work in the theater. On the plus side I have had some free evenings to actually watch a movie or two, just not as many as I would have like to have watched.

Enough blabbering on to actual progress.

I got my sink, faucet, and drain sump installed, plumbed, wired, and operational. My kitchenette is finally operational. Just need to get a microwave and I'm all set. (Popcorn maker to hopefully come later). Nice to have a working sink and faucet to go with the kitchenette.

Sink/Faucet



The drain sump that makes it all possible.



Ok and how you remember the riser.




Riser now.









Well fellas, while I still have some little things to do like trim, and the acoustic panels, touch up work, and an additional light in the kitchenette, I have a completed theater. I can say that while I don't know what you actually "feel" I can imagine those of you who are in my boat look around and marvel at what you have done, grinning from ear to ear. At least that's what I do. To those of you who are still dreaming, planning, working on and constructing your theaters, I assure you it is all "worth it". This truly has been a journey like no other. Filled with blood, sweat, and tears, sacrifices, setbacks, accomplishments, and satisfaction.

I think it turned out fantastic, and is pretty much what I had envisioned from the start. The best part is that it's mine, I built it, and I'm completely happy and satisfied!

Regards,

Let me be the first to congratulate you; well done sir! Enjoy it!

Now don't leave us hanging on those last few details! And I trust that this doesn't mean you won't be around to continue to encourage and cajole the rest of us along. We need it! Your positive attitude and continual effort show in your results and are an asset to the community here. I'm glad for you to have finished (almost) and be able to enjoy the fruits of your labor. Well done!

I think it turned out fantastic, and is pretty much what I had envisioned from the start. The best part is that it's mine, I built it, and I'm completely happy and satisfied!

My sentiments precisely! I think we managed to reach the same point at the same time! YEAH! They're ours!!!
