    Relocated the stereo in the middle of the dash removed the vent (oh well )

    Custom Tweed through out

    Custom fiberglassed sub panels , on 3/4 " MFD carpeted

    New carpet front red, back black

    New gauges in the vent hole above heater controls ( bye bye vent...)

    That is sweet, i like the carpeting on the pash pad and plastic trim. How hard was it to get that to form to all the pieces? How thick is that carpet you used on your plastic trim pieces? Do you have any more pictures of your head liner area and trim pieces? That is a way nice interior, has to be one of the nicer ones i have seen, good job.

    Looks great. I like how you mounted your sub. Is that the L5 or L7 ?? I run a L7 myself.

    :laugh:

    WEll i started with 3/4" MDF , traced the OEM cardboard sides out and cut .

    then i cut a base for the sub to sit in, then used wood dowel s cut to lenght

    found the angle i was looking for and hot glued the dowels to the base and MDF, then wraped a airplane blanket( or strech a tee shirt over the area to be glassed)

    from there i coated the area with a resin hardner mix, let cure next day ,

    started laying the fiberglass and soaking with resin, did that over and over for about three days. then after it all cured i used a saw to fine tune my sub opening, and used a belt sander to smooth the whole thing, it looked awsome before i carpeted it! i dont have any pic of the process though , ( ill look i might)

    and thats it . alll and all i could of brought the enclouser in 2-3 "s it rubs on the tail gate...

    I'm running a single L7 in a large slot port box and it gets crazy loud. I'm very impressed with the Kicker L7. So impressed that I'm going too replace the factory speakers with Kickers. KS46's up front and KS693's for the rear deck. I've got my L7 wires at 1 ohm and powered by a MMATS D200hc. The gain isn't even 1/4 up and it is VERY LOUD !!! I've tracked down a MMATS 4065 too power the main speaker. Just need too dig up alittle $$ now, LOL. [​IMG] I like how you painted your speaker grill. Think I'll paint mine Silver too match the car.

    you might want to make something to cover your amps up, either that or get a much bigger lift. I ran mine mounted out in the open on my s series and it only took a year a a half for someone to borrow them.
