    Power windows and door speakers ARE possible, but VERY difficult. My 5 1/4's are at the bottom front corners of the doors on my '87, and the grills almost touch the kickpanel trim when the door is shut. The holes were cut by the previous owner, so I don't personally know how hard the cutting is, but I hear it's a cast-iron B!TC#. I do know the minor trimming I had to do for fit wasn't easy.

    try q panels from q logic. you can find them at www.crutchfield.com. i think you can get them from circuit city. they cost like 150 but provide excellent sound. they go just in front of the door by your feet and aim the speakers toward the driver and passenger. very good if you can afford it.

    Useyourblinker, love the interior man. Thats a great looking job. Did you have to do much cutting of the plastic trim pannel? I'm guessing fiberglass and MDF did the job for ya? I was planning on mounting mine down low, but I like the looks of that better. May have to build some temporary MDF boxes to decide where they sound better ;) Way to go, got me thinking about the system again
