I got bored one night and decided I needed a change in the current audio setup, which was two 8" Kicker Comps behind the bench seat. This was constructed:

I had a 60/40 split bench laying around, so that was the next project. removing the bench and inserting the split bench.

The seats had some spacing issues, so I had to mock up custom brackets, which were actually the stock ones from the bench seat. But I go them to work, and they sit really nice!

During the time of the seat installation, I gutted my interior and doors and put a product called Frost King on all the surfaces. Vette and stang restorers swear by the stuff so I tried it out. It really keeps the cab at a nice temp and makes the stereo system sound louder. It also helps keep the road noises quieter! Its cheap too. I dont have any pics of the install unfortunately.
