Next I wanted to add a little detail to the amp rack cover.

I started off with a couple profile trims, then used the roundover bit and sanded smooth.

The hand sanded the profile so it would look right.



Covering the O took more then a few times to get right. Wrapping the inside part was nothing nice.

Now it'* time to mount the radio bezel to the dash. I started out by attaching it with zip ties to hold it steady i then glassed it in from the underside. Working under the dash isn't fun as it is, let alone when working with fiberglass.

Once secure, it was time to mold it into the dash.

The dash was painted by the owner in a satin black. i used a few different types of paint to give the dash a textured look that could of been stock. It ended up being a textured paint with a hammered finished paint over that with a satin black coat over that.

Last part was the wiring. I needed a switch for the fans, one for the amps for a kill switch, and then the led lights. The 4th is a spare for fog lights when they come in.

These are a very nice switch. My only complaint is the very thin lip to mount them. You have to be perfect in your hole cutout.

Next item was to add a bass **** into the dash. I didn't want some funky random **** on the dash so i decided the cig lighter looked like a good spot.

Disassembled the lighter.

Last part was to put on a new trunk lid without the spoiler holes. I used this awesome little product from a company you may have heard of called Second Skin. It is their spectrum product. It is water base and will creep into any nook. You can also apply it with a spray gun.

Taped off where I wanted to pour to advoid drips.

No mixing required in this product. Pour in and let air dry. make sure its in thin batches so it dries right

Thanks!

The fuse block is made by Blue Sea. They aren't cheap, but they do have a few different styles to choose from. I just picked up a few of their AGU fuse style, and I like them better for making relay kits.
