    Yeah man, they were bad. Honestly, polishing those was the most work I think I will do in this whole build lol. But worth it! And yeah, I love both of these amps

    To be honest I'm surprised they're not more popular. I like knowing everything going on in my system, and hoping to spread some knowledge and prove a couple people wrong with it. I also thought about a temp controller, but found it unnecessary IMO. I couldn't justify the price vs. a simple switch for fans. Plus here in Texas, those fans would be spinning pretty much all the time anyway lol.

    Re: 1999 Chevrolet Blazer

    Cut the top piece. Here's how it should look:



    The amps will be mounted about .5-.75" off the board. Gonna have to use threaded rod and washers/nuts for the 5k because the mounting tabs are so far off the board. Threaded rod and washers/nuts are so ugly though. Anyone have any ideas?

    But I am going to be drilling holes for all wires, routing all edges, then staining it. Will be on hinges so the long edge close to the 5k opens upward.

    Made some standoffs from some material I got at Lowe's. Amps are 1.25" from the board.

    Re: 1999 Chevrolet Blazer

    Got tint done all around today. Done by a 3M authorized installer so it's guaranteed for life (as long as I don't lose the card). Got 35% on the front two windows, and 20% on all windows behind the driver in addition to the factory tint, so around 10% in the back.



    Been workin on the amp rack/batt box a little, but nothin worth posting yet.

    Nah, I'm not really a fan of that. But I'm real happy with it. Can't see into from the outside, but from the inside it's not too much more than stock. Haven't drove at night though either....lol

    Re: 1999 Chevrolet Blazer

    So, been working on the amp rack. Got both amps figured out, mounting holes drilled and test-mounted, power wire holes drilled and routed, just waiting on fans now to measure and cut holes for before I start to stain the top piece.



    Also got it mounted on hinges and latches. Used butterfly latches, pretty much the only latches I know of that I trust not to eventually rattle loose.









    Thinkin about getting some hood or trunk gas springs, not sure yet. Probably will just use a strap or something to keep it from going too far over.

    I'm positive I'm staining the top a nice dark brown, still undecided on the bottom, will probably just carpet.

    Re: 1999 Chevrolet Blazer

    Got my $100 worth of fans in from Newegg. 140mm fans, top will be pulling, side will be pushing out from box. Sorry, the pictures are a bit shoddy, it's da iPhone.





    I think the top is ready for stain after some light sanding. I was thinking about putting a voltage meter and the switches for the fans up there, but I think I'm going to keep it clean and put them on the sides. I think it would ruin the classic stained look.

    Also, I LOVE this Craftsman Bolt-on kit. I've done all of this with the driver, jigsaw, and router attachments (besides the side cuts with a trim saw).

    Re: 1999 Chevrolet Blazer

    Just took off my door card, and holy F'n S, am I F'ed in the A.









    So not only do I need another 1.5" in depth, I need an additional inch in diameter. I knew it would be some work, but I didn't think it would be THIS much. :shocked: :doh:

    I think I have an idea though. But it will require me to finally learn to glass. Thought I might be able to get away without doing it for this build. Oh well.
