Re: "Stealth" stereo build

OK - got to spend some time on this on Saturday - Ran the speaker wires down the wire channel under the driver side door plate - I didn't remove the kick panels because after reading the PIA it is on this site I decided it was much easier to just slide the wires underneath between the carpet and the kick panel.

Going to use the original stereo wiring for my power leads to the trunk and that project is for next weekend. Also took care of the glove box light while I was in there

Got the backseat removed and thanks to everyone on this site for all the info on how to get this done No build sheet but I didn't expect to find one but I did find the original seat belts under the back seat - score

The other issue I have now is that it appears that whoever did the restoration tucked the sides of the package tray under the headliner - I'm not too worried about beating up the package tray as I am going to replace it anyway but I am worried about screwing up the headliner.

Got the JL TR690's ordered as well as some baffles and spacers - the original sheet metal is still in tact in the 6x9 openings and I am not about to cut anything

Re: "Stealth" stereo build

We put some time in today and stopped just shy of turning the power on as I want to go through and verify all the wiring first so I don't fry anything


OK - so here is what the speakers looked like under mount without trimming any sheet metal out.

Fuse for the 12v constant power - extra long lead to work with if it does blow tucked up under the rear seat.

Notice the little "doohickey" on the front edge of the stereo plate - that is the transmitting end of the IR repeater - it actually works very good.

I was a little worried last night when I was trying to tune without the sub and I wasn't excited about what I heard but the sub makes all the difference - sounds great and very happy

Few more final touches like getting the new package shelf installed but almost ...
