Alright so I've already figured out that 5.25" speakers sort of fit in the hole where the window motor would be if my car had power windows, however I need a spacer ring to make them sit level, as the hole is not entirely round nor quite large enough. I had to do something similar with the rear speakers, which are only partially installed 'cause I don't have another drill bit and I am not brave enough to attempt drilling upwards for the rear holes (can't reach them from the top) without first cutting the bit down short enough so it won't break my rear window.
But therein lies the problem, if I raise them up, the window crank will hit them, so I either need a really short window crank, or one that sticks out farther, I'd rather have a short one.
So, simply put, where might I source said shorter crank? I have pictures of the hackjob install I've done for now, the speakers are cheap Pioneers I got out of the junkyard for $10, I don't care about them, I'll be putting some Kicker KS'* up there with some baffles and maybe dynamat in the doors once I find a new drivers side door.
It'* a half assed mess, I know, but so is the interior of this car in a lot of places. It'* the polar opposite of most cars I see if this era, everything but the headliner is ruined. The radio is held in with duct tape folded over underneath it, 'cause I haven't bothered to get a fit kit when I need to pull the radio and run new wires later. They make a kit that'll fit a 89 custom cruiser wagon, but you need the dash panel with the 1.5DIN opening (I have it). And the speaker wiring is all temporary, part of the front speaker wire hangs down 'cause I didn't feel like routing it around those kick panel lights. I'll swap them for LED bulbs and heat wrap the new speaker wire so it doesn't get melted. This was all an experiment to make sure I can fit in nicer speakers, and a stop gap so I had something other than silence. Other than the rear tweeters blowing and me removing them, it'* been worth the $20 for the four old Pioneer blue cone "OEM Upgrade" speakers. I've got it figured out, except for the window cranks, I'd still like to open my window when I have the speakers properly spaced out.
