    I also got started on the doors. A little bit at a time.

    A before shot of the door



    I have the ring cut out and it is wrapped with fleece just waiting to get glassed up



    If you compare to the before pic you will see what i am going to be relocating the pocket area to the rear part of the door.

    Thank you.. yes it is taking some time to do this and the skill level doesn't need to be to high just be able to learn quick and you'll get it down in no time.

    Re: 2007 Ford Escape Rebuild...

    So i started to strip out everything all old wires remove the old speakers and start cleaning everything up so i could start putting deadener in.

    My giant mess of wires that i have to take out. everything is zip tied and wrapped with electrical tape. Also all wires were soldered and shrink wrapped.

    Re: 2007 Ford Escape Rebuild...

    After i got the wires cleaned up and taken out i started to get test fitting the doors just to make sure they will fit still with the new speakers in. As you can see i needed to do some modified work here to make some clearance for the 6.5 and some more clearance for the pocket i relocated.

    The Pocket area.







    This is before I cut the area to fit the pocket. I forgot to get the after shot of the cut for the pocket. I could get a shot of it later but there is now deadener on it.



    The before shot of the 6.5 area i had to modify

    Why it didn't fit



    Before i had it cut



    The after shot of the modified area for the 6.5



    The door fits good now

    The test fit for the 8 was perfect. I didn't have to cut or modify anything.

    Re: 2007 Ford Escape Rebuild...

    So I did quite a bit a work today. I didn't get much pictures of the process because my camera battery was dead, used it at my daughters basket ball game. I also did have my phone because it needed to be charged... Plus i got into work mode i didn't ever get the cameras during the process... Anyway here are some pics i did manage to get.

    Here you see i cleaned up all my speaker wires... Also showing where the are routed... For the most part i just followed factory wires and zip tied...











    Here is just showing the rca's



    Got the routing of the wires for the flip down monitor when it comes in...





    Also did some work on the shift lever area... You see here i have 2 volt meters, the top 2, and some LED touch on/off switches...

    Re: 2007 Ford Escape Rebuild...

    So i wanted to hear how the speakers sounded so i just set in my doors to get them playing. I did clean up all the wiring some more and set in the carpet a few other things. The vids will be up once finished loading.

    Here also i got my shift lever area primed up and ready to coat black.
