Nice work, I love the install! Sure wish I could do a large chunk of my install during lunch hours...

Have you gotten a chance to listen to the USA amps yet? I have a 4080 and 4050 I'm about to put in to Power my front stage, curious on your thoughts.

Ya it is nice having the shop to mess around in during my hour lunch. Right now I've been pretty busy outside of work so I haven't gotten anything more done on the pillars. Once they are ready for paint I will be painting all the new interior trim pieces. Then back to the amp rack/flooring.

Haven't heard the USA amps yet. Will be a surprise!

You mean the end of the a-pillar panel that will be covered by the dash? I haven't cleaned them up. I will actually have to mark where the pillar meets the dash and clearance the area that's recessed. The tolerances are tight between the pillars/dash. When I wrap these in grill cloth I don't think they will fit. So I'm not that concerned with the ends yet.

Thanks! I actually got a chance to preview it. Turbo5upra was helping yesterday, and we swapped out his DIYMA 12 for my IDQ12 (in my enclosure) and it sounded great! Tight, accurate, and even reached deep. Everything I wanted. Can't wait till it's in MY car.

Threw some semi-gloss rattle can black on them. Just for protection from whatever sun might get em. Though the grill cloth you can't see anything anyway..

Lunch updates:

Put some 1/4" thick double-sided foam tape on the bottom of the planar mounting edge. Stuck em in place and zipped em down with 1/2" long screws. They are looking sweet. 1 last test fit, then I will wrap them in grill cloth and install them in the car.

Had to paint the rivit heads black on the neo8. Stuck out like a sore thumb through the grill cloth.

Thanks, and great install!!

Well more updates, not so many pictures.

Removed the amp rack and finished up all the wiring.
Removed front door panels, created 1/2" MDF adapter rings.
Fished 4 conductor Wire up to the a-pillar & terminated
Fished 4 conductor Wire into the doors. WOW what a PITA!! Took about 1hr per door.
Created a bracket for the fuse block under the hood & painted it.
Test fitted the pillars w/speakers installed.

That's actually about it. 5hrs went so fast... I think I'm going to pick up some marine grade plywood and remake the adapter rings. There actually is alot of moisture inside the doors, and I want to make sure the rings don't swell up.

I dropped one of the pillars and it cracked the fiberglass on the end of the pillar. Epoxy and a light sand/paint and it'll go away. Just set me back! Along with pissed me off.

Speaker mounted with 3/4" material, swapped it out for 1/2" after discovering clearance issues.


Bracket

It's not kerfkore. It's actually 5/4 x 10 Southern Yellow Pine lumber. We use it for stair tread stock here @ work. I kerf'd it myself here in the shop with a dedicated saw we have.
