    Things are starting to come together

    Finally getting some work done to the truck.

    Test fitting the latest goody under the seat (waiting for Fatmat and new carpet). I'll test your zoom skills to tell me what it is





    Totally stole Ed's awesome idea for a bulkhead connector



    Another test fit, so much cleaning to do in the engine compartment and that Ford sealer is nasty!

    Megasquirt engine management system ! I tested my zoom skills and they work ! I get increasingly more interested in these aftermarket engine management systems rather than fuss with the old computer that came with the trucks !!

    They are Delphi HES connectors from Waytek (http://www.waytekwire.com/products?pSearch=Delphi%20HES), only problem is they want to sell you BIG$$$$ terminal crimpers, I found some on Ebay that do the trick http://goo.gl/HTZGPg They crimp the connector to the stripped portion of the wire fine, but you'll need to use another regular crimper (like for a butt connector) or small pliers to roll the 2nd part of the terminal around the insulated portion of wire.

    Haha, you win Before I took a "break" from Lightning's I was such a firm believer in just tuning the factory EEC no matter what, but now there's just so much awesome technology available.

    Got a bit more done today, but first, OMG hot!!



    Before:



    After:



    Bought 100 sq/ft of Fatmat "Rattletrap" their heavy duty stuff http://amzn.to/2u8Ac9r, only used one full roll and just a couple of pieces of the 2nd roll and I was far from stingy. Debating on doing the top of the cab.

    How does the mat help with heat? Just wondering if it was worth it to keep the cab cooler in the summer time?

    I'm not 100% sure about heat, my main goal was noise reduction.

    Went ahead and did the roof, putting the visors back made me say bad words... Lots of them.

    Installed Fatmat on the doors and I am test fitting some of the stereo stuff. Not sure if I like where the Tweeter is, I might just ditch the component speakers and go with a 2 way 6.5" and be done. There's no way I am hacking up door panels or pillars...

    Pass door, I figured Ford had a good reason for the venting in the lower right part of the door so I am not gonna cover it up.



    Pass side Tweeter, like I said I dunno about it. Looks bigger in the pics. The Tweeter bracket has the trim screw going through the center of it to hold it together. Only one screw in for now that's why the trim looks saggy.





    Found an awesome place behind pass side kick panel to mount the crossover. As a bonus I simply used an existing bolt, no new holes drilled!!!

    I have thought about going with the component system vs the 2 or 3 way speaker, but I have never had a system with the component set up. What is the difference in sound?
