This weekend I built a sub box with a single 10" in it and a big JVC 4 channel amp on it. After I got the box worked in and fitting nice and stelth like; the 6x9's in the read deck wouldn't fit. So I tore the dash apart (needed to anyhow; I've had a new no-crack dash for 10 years sitting on my shelf) to put a little pair of 4-1/2" speakers in the center dash; but they are just a little too big. So for now I've got some thump but nothing to go along with it and a shinney new looking dash (also while it was off I cleaned up the wireing, cleaned all the wires and dash and guages then put it all back together). Looks good except the chrome on plastic gages are looking tired; need to do some shopping for a chrome/insterment cluster referbish. Also got a bench seat from a junk yard in Washington; that'll have to get re-upholstered this winter too. Black with blue tweed or vented vinyl centers that match the dash (metal part of the dash; the paded portion is black now).

Cool ride! I don't know why, but it sort of reminds me of the Nova my future husband restored from the ground up starting when he was 14, and had finished by the time he got his license! (See ZanySmurph's "Brown Bomber")
