I started building My interior panel support framing. I plan on doing a hard style headliner, I used luan plywood to build the frame. Then I built a new overhead console for a Kenwood deck with a 6.5 inch screen. The deck has a built in nav system and rear back up camera. I built a custom 10 inch sub box behind the rear seat frame. I have sound deadened the whole car except the floor, which I will do once I quit crawling in and out so much. I still have to put glass in the car and put in a pair of suicide safety locks.
I had grow a pair and drill four holes through the painted firewall for the Chrome bulk head. Then I had to cut a large hole in the dash for the controls (also painted). The control panel only fits right where its at. The wiring is splitting the Evaporator openings and is jambed back as far as possible. Also the speedo cable is sitting on top of the evaporator. I blocked of the center port and just ran the two outsides and the defrost.
I had decided to wait to install Vintage Ac till after paint big mistake. First off its a lot of work, second off it didn't fit that great at first. I had to rewire most of dash replace two of my gauges and build a new over head console. Also I built a new under dash panel and ditched my first center console. My wife says it was ugly anyways and I agree lol
well I stumbled on a 5.0 Pony motor that I thought I should have in my F-100. It's a 1996 5.0 with a auto tranny and all the computer and harnesses. It came out of a 1949 F-1 that you will probably see in sema next year it has 20 k miles on it. I picked it up for 800 bucks and had to box the frame rails and build mounts to get it in the Truck. I put a Cordoba front end under this truck a couple of years ago. I have had this truck since I was 14.
I started building a console to hold the stereo and the window controls and AC controls. I haven't decided if I am going to put a tach in or a back up camera in the center of it. I fab-ed it up out of sheet metal this one is 2 of 2 it was harder than it looked
