Well, since my 12A came earlier this week I figured I would spend a little time getting everything ready for the install....this is my first install that I'll be doing myself, so any suggestions will be great.
For one, the trunk in my car is an absolute ***** to work in. But I got all the padding ripped apart from behind the seat.
Next was getting the MDF cut to go around the box, to kind of clean things up, so the box wasn't just setting in the trunk...figured I will try and make it at least half way decent to look at when I open it. As of now I don't have anything carpeted, I was just getting the MDF cut and getting it to fit, so YES it will be carpeted the same color as the trunk.
Surrounding for the box:
And then, just to get an idea I put the box in to see if it would fit...I'm going to be making a fitting for above the box so there is no space...
I went to an Olds dealership and got a new fitting for the dash where the HU sits, it was wood grained, and for me there was just WAY too much wood grained trim. So I just got a flat black surround for it, looks much better now. Took the HU out and put the face on it and remounted the HU.
And I'm done for today...I'll have pics up by the weekend of the complete install...I will have my amp by this Monday or Tuesday and probably have it all installed by Friday.
Any suggestions? Opinions? Comments?
