About 3 weeks ago we started work on a really nice el camino. It had just been painted and the engine was rebuilt. Now it is time for some interior work.
Just to put everyone's mind at ease, we also work on vehicles driven to the shop...
We will be building fiberglass kick panels for the Hertz 6.5" component set, a center console for an aftermarket head unit and some additional gauges, a ported
fiberglass enclosure utilizing space in the cubby under the bed and liberal amounts of dynamat and dynaliner.
We started with the kick panels by building a fiberglass replica of the stock kick panels. We didn't want to cut any stock panels so we went this route. We then built baffles for the components and glass around to the base mold. Here are the kicks ready to be covered.
The center console is almost ready for finishing. It looks a little big in this picture but it fits in the vehicle just the way the owner would like.
The last pice is the sub box. Here you can see it test fit in the cubby. Above the sub will be the Audison Lrx 4x75 watt amp. We will be running 75 watts to each component set and 300 watts to the single Hertz Energy 10. We are thinking about trimming out the sub box with a little bit of black plexi. When used right it can look really clean.
You can see that we used plenty of dynamat and a nice layer of dynaliner.
The kick panels turned out really nice and the Hertz High Energy components look as good as they sound.
The console is getting to complete as well. We went ahead and painted the console black. This may not rally match the rest of the vehicle so we are talking about wrapping it in black vinyl to match.
