    I can't remember who it was that sent me some great info on how they did their rear inner panels, but you had some 10" woofers mounted in them and they looked great. I accidentally deleted all the info I got from you and am now getting started on my interior and would appreciate it if you could get in contact with me again on this subject. Like I said, the info was awesome with lots of detail and I'm still kicking myself for not printing it out.

    Thanks,

    L8r,

    I'm about to do mine, except in the back corners I'm gonna have access panels to store crap like jumper cables, etc.
    My subs are going to be in the raised floor I'm building.. =)

    Riz,

    It is BlazzinOR, because I asked him a couple of questions regarding the install. Do a Search and it should come up.

    Here's a picture on this post, and another on the next one if you still need them. Any questions, let me know, will be glad to help.

    Thanks BlazinnOR,

    I think you e-mailed me a detailed description of how you built yours once......do you think you could send it again ? I hate to be a pain in the rear, but it was real precise in the materials used and how you went about doing it. I would greatly appreciate it. My e-mail addy is in my profile. I'm just getting started on the interior now that my engine swap is complete. Thanks.

    L8r,

    .Riz.

    I'll try to dig it up tomorrow (when my eyes are able to stay open) or re-type it out. No problem.

    Finally moved to Oregon and this time zone change is killing me. Feels like 1 in the morning to me, only 10 at night here in the west.

  13. Hey guys, if you wanted to take of the panel all together, how do you get the panel out from behind the front seat belt retractor? I was playing with the panel the other day and that is keeping me from taking it completely off. Thanks as always.

    You have to unbolt the seat belt retractor from the floor. The bolt is hidden under the plastic cover. Just carefully pry the cover off and you'll see the head of the bolt.

  15. My front seat belt retractor is mounted on the side of the cab over the side panel. I don't see a way to get the cover or entire assembly off. I will try to pop the cover off again though.

    Think about it this way: They had to bolt it on there. That means you can unbolt it. [​IMG]

    I've been researching the same thing, I've been told that Multi-Density Fiberboard is the best to use for our application. Would love to see progress pics on yours, I've been tossing around the idea of doing my own versu letting the stereo shop & interior shop do them.

    The ones on my 1979 have a little window on the bottom side of the cover that you can pry open with a screwdriver. Behind it is an allen head bolt. Get a good wrench because I bent mine before I was able to even scratch the bolt.

    I my self have been thinking of building a sub floor that would house my Subs. I want it to be level with the rear seat when its folded down so I can use it as a bed. Just drop the seat & plop down the air matt. fill with onboard air and yer set. Mobile, Self Recoverin, 4x4'n, Chick Diggin: Shaggin Waggin
