Had some cold weather come through so I didn't work on the bus much, plus holidays and all. I did spend some more time taking off the reflective decals and starting to get all the decal goo off which looks like it will take a while for sure, so paint will have to wait.
I gathered up my stereo components, got a pioneer package stereo/speakers and I built the enclosures for the 6x9's which I'll hang in the rear of the bus
The 6.5's will be cut into the interior sheet metal, as of right now I just stuck them to where I wanted them to be to see how it looked. I had to cut down the padding panel on the left side to have a clear spot for one speaker. I was just going to take the panel down but the sheet metal work under there is ugly, there's a big gap that needs to stay covered so I'll leave the vinyl pad there until after the bachelor trip. You can see where I marked the tv that my buddy has that we were going to use, but it is too big and will cover the drop down bus control panel, and I can't shift it right or I'll interfere with the 6.5 speaker. I think I'm just going to get a slightly smaller tv that will stay through the phase 2 renovation after the trip.
I installed the new head unit where the removable panel is that the flasher relay board was mounted to, the location seems perfect.
You can't see, but I put the 10" subwoofer behind the driver seat, it was an old one I had extra but it fit perfect. I ordered a factory refurbished amplifier (cheaper than new) and it should fit below the driver seat under the computer tray (not a great pic, just crammed it in there to see if it all fit.
I picked up these LED pen lights with magnets at the end and they have been an incredible investment at only $5 each from Academy sports, I can basically stick them anywhere inside the bus because of the sheet metal.
So next I need to cut the 6.5 speakers in, hang the 6x9 boxes, figure out a good spot for the inverter we are going to power the tv with, and then I need to wire it all up!
