The blackout continues... 7 of 8 grille trim pieces have been reinstalled. One trim piece needs to be resprayed. Received some 3m vinyl to blackout the roof rails and window trim. Need to order some larger sheets to cover the rear side window trims. Contemplating on reflective black strips to cover the brushed aluminum side mouldings.ededabe5b073df29aa907931a1942a9d.jpge363db5491e0207ea5befaeac2f1c26b.jpge4319860adeeb0df7c1acc4ebab56b7c.jpg

Black out done for now. The vinyl wrapped parts are pretty terrible, but from a distance it's not too bad. This was done with 3M 1080 series black vinyl, a matte finish on the rails and satin on the window trim pieces. The vinyl was great, my technique (or lack there of) was the only issue. 不 43420a2ccfc7b5c1341a28e264bf9593.jpgcd2d4a94225d01fedbd89e1f7fed2582.jpg

Upgrading the sound system... with a little bump in the trunk. Figured I would start out with the cheapest subwoofers I could find to tune the system before throwing in something decent. Ordered a custom 370amp alternator from a shop called Apex to power this beast without dimming the headlights. Still have to run a 1/0 power cable, remote trigger wire with cutoff switch and a 1/0 ground. Good thing my Tiggy has the Fender stereo, I have a sub signal already run to the trunk. 626039610c629ed9004ad564f73d248d.jpg23b470bc5acefcc0e50258e6a95e1550.jpg

Got my system up and running for a fire test. All is working well so far. Had to remove the battery, battery tray and intake box to run my 1/0 AWG power cable to the amps. Thankfully I found a large odd shapped grommet on the firewall to run the cable through. Next, I start hiding the wires and begin the arguious task of final fitment.0fcf4a41842fbb3cf3128702bff1d9f5.jpg5998184c3303cd1867ded50e11b341ce.jpga0a5c2a6391c3ec28c5b5db0a34526c7.jpg

Spent the night rerouting and hiding wires through Tiggy. Was able to run a 1/0 power line down the left hand side wire channel (tight fit between the back seat and cargo area). Replaced my $50 super-budget Lanzar woofers with a pair of mid-level 15's from Skar Audio. Running them at 4 ohms (~450 watts each) until they break in, then I will rewire them down to 1 ohms and push them at 1000+ watts each... assuming Tiggy doesn't explode. Got a small dual Voltmeter and stereo switch for the monitoring my electrical and creating a kill switch for the amps.c8d5fc09785514ed3ab0ea5cbf2f67ab.jpg610be39f7db2a3f8fedfb297fd9e5166.jpg4d87f14964f5714f72f84b075b54d182.jpgae912b458abb7575c383392d3cc85099.jpg

Made a power/ground board to keep my cables happy. Lost a grub screw halfway through the fabrication, but my wife found it hiding under one of the rear seats. (Thanks honey!) This setup will eventually be replaced with a single box using the rear deck perch and including a removable access panel for the spare tire.e09078eb4c1947867fa738c3eafd3b6e.jpge1451b693ece304e246a1a55fbd5e53b.jpg852f4e8d6c2ecabf07bce0cefff9b64d.jpg12756e90639d40a8b77432ca02295cbb.jpg

Decided to try my hand at a custom subwoofer enclosure. Started with a rear deck to hold a couple 8" midrange drivers. Next (tomorrow) will be a floor panel with a trapdoor for access to the spare tire. In other news, I gave up on making my own bonnet struts and ordered the ebay kit from Russia.873205b0862cb568d001fd61fbd0a38f.jpg73905a542ed0f45dae7191098730bdcf.jpgeb2fcdd6b6aa43baa17dd3d0a10f8bdd.jpg375944777b5d156eed8767c8b3aedb88.jpg

Update... MDF is EXTREMELY messy to cut and router!!! I was not prepared for the copious amounts of dust. Anyway, I cut the boot floor (twice... ugh) and made a flush access panel for the spare tire. I also changed up my configuration plan and cut a new top boot deck to house my 2 Skar VXF-15 D2's. I'm getting rid of the 8" mids seen in the previous post and ordered 2 Skar EVL-65 6.5" subs to mount to the front plate (directly behind the rear seats) in their own sealed off chamber to be wired out of phase for the punchy hi-bass kicks.

Got a little done today...very little. But I took a picture of one of the 15" subs next to a beer can for scale. As you can see, these things are massive. I've been trying to come up with a way to support the weight with a combination of trusses and corner braces that will still give access to the spare tire...124500d0ec21ef300aaa5453082fde06.jpg90a63e9cbc829c7667b8a59413077f15.jpg

Got the floor panel actually finished. FYI, for anyone trying to create a floor panel, there is a 1/2 inch drop in the foam support behind the rear seats and it extends back about 8-1/2 inches. If you don't account for this, your floor will teeter-totter and rattle. Today I also rough cut the sides and the rear panel. Tomorrow I should get my Skar EVL 65 6.5inch subs delivered so I can finally measure them up and plan out my front panel. Unfortunately I have some work obligations that will keep me from really doing anything tomorrow. So, in my spare time I will be trying to sketch out a few ideas for the amp and power distribution racks. Took a pic of the horrible mess I'm making in the garage and a shot of the auxiliary battery that will be sunk into the floor panel.969d98da9d9291f4c54c8296d709cf39.jpg738d098c04ab2181b6e0afe6b7e1bcaf.jpg
