Came out nice!  If you still need to cover the speaker, I'd just use some grill cloth.  Pretty cheap, can be cut to fit, and useful for other projects as well.

Thanks Texas! Thatís a great idea for the speaker. I can do the same for the rear under the package tray as well.

Iím back with another question  icon_smile_big

I have a small hole under my dash near the ignition. Iím wondering if it is a stock thing or if itís just another hole the previous owner drilled into the car. Here it is in the picture:

Hereís what Iíve got going on right now. Wiring up a Bluetooth amp to the dash speaker, two package tray speakers, and an 8Ē subwoofer. It sounds pretty good outside of the car so Iím hoping it sounds good in the car as well.

I added a toggle switch for the sound system and replaced the cigarette lighter with a dual USB charging port. The ash tray insert looked out of place with the raw galvanized finished so i sandblasted and painted it. I also painted the glovebox door with SEM vinyl paint. It looked a little dull next to the other freshly painted pad. Iíll most likely do the other two now.

Use an application of something like Armour All on the dull piece, it will add a little shine and protection to the finish.  The more ArmorAll you use the more shine you get.

Not a fan of ArmorAll because it is somewhat greasy.

Yes, because it has silicone in it.  It feels slick bust won' t come off on your cloths if you wipe it down really well.  i also use it as a lubricant on window felts when a window is hard to roll up and down.

Thank ya! For the speaker mesh stuff I was told anything youíd cover speakers with would work. Thereís a few options on eBay, some better than others. Thatís what I was gonna try.

Iím back with another question  icon_smile_big

I have a small hole under my dash near the ignition. Iím wondering if it is a stock thing or if itís just another hole the previous owner drilled into the car. Here it is in the picture:

Thatís gotta be it. Does that mean my dash went to a 4-speed car at one point or are they all stamped like that?

Or a guy on assembly line mistakenly grabbed a 4 speed dash installed it and then saw build sheet and said..."screw it, it's fine"
