Hey thanks for all your PMs, I'm deff building my own deck and A pillars like you did.

How did you run the wires and where to? I can kind of guess how, down the bottom under the dash somewheres, and spliced into the front speaker wires?

Also thanks for letting me know you have to SLIDE the pillars up first and then yank them out. I broke the top clip on my left pillar, LOL! But it'* alright I'm just kidding ya. My CD holder above my head blocks the part where it hangs from view.

ha i snapped mine too lol so dont feel bad, its why the pass side hangs a lil bit. ill be puttin some velcro on the top after they are complete to keep it in place. the wires are just ran behind the pilars down the side and under the dash to the HU and wired to the front outputs, and have the door speakers wired to the rear outputs for the time being. i have no rear speakers and it still sounds good. kids dont mind no rears lol and once i can get the funds to do so ill be adding a set of componants to the doors and run a amp to the mids and highs. feel free to PM me if ya need anymore info too

I've been thinking more about how to cover the border of those A-pillar speakers, I'll let you know when I really thought of something, but I'm trying to come up with something along the lines of a thick fabric, or maybe leather, folded up or stuffed a bit and sown together in a rim and glued to it.

Is that Auto-CAD 3D I see? I graduated from a local 2-yeah Vo-Tech for Drafting and Design and also majored in it when I went to college for a year and a half.
