Few things I've done will waiting to get medical clearace to go back to work...
I have a strong disdain for the shade of orangish/tan that was in the car and I've never thought that blue and brown are a good match anyway...
So here's what I did. I got a nice used black carpet from an 86, Dyed the door panels, and installed some seat covers that I got at Checker for 25 each and they are called "vent". They fit and look better than I thought they would.
I also installed a false rear wall that is about 2.5" deep all the way across but about 6" thick in the spare tire area. It's divided into to seprate chambers and each one has about .5 Sq ft volume, which is optimal for the two 8" shallow mount pioneer subwoofers. The subs are driven by a Sony "1200 watt" 2-channel amplifier - yeah right, more like 300 watts RMS at "listenable" levels. I am building a custom enclosure for the amp and capacitor, but it's not photo ready yet.
I am 5'8" and I sit with the seat pretty much near straight up anyway (for posture) so I got used to it pretty quick. A taller person would likely have a problem with it, I am guessing. For me, they way it sounds and FEELS, is way worth the trade off of not being able to lean the chair back a few more inches.
Enough words, we'll let the pictures speak...
If ya notice the dog hairs by the subs. That's beacuse my 8 year old St. Bernard, Isabelle, has advanced and inoperable liver cancer and is too weak to get in and out the Rodeo, and the sky is too small. So, I pull the passenger seat, lay down a few blankets and she happily rides there. She fits perfectly, and it's relatively easy for her to get in and out of. You should see the look on people's faces when she sits up and sticks her head out the window at stop lights. Everyone loves the big dog! And she's a big old ham, so she loves it too. Since she only has a very short time left to live, I take her to all my wife's ballgames where she can be with people. That's when she is happiest.
My sweet Isabelle -
