      This is going to be my next addition, more than likely. I was going to pick one up but decided to go for the audio upgrades instead. Now, if the crazy Texas weather and UPS would get their act together, I could continue with my install...

      I was amazed at how good the stock exhaust tips cleaned up with a little polish and elbow grease. Well, it took some steel wool the first time, but now I just hit them every other week with some metal polish and a cloth and they shine like new. [Borat] Very nice! [/Borat]

      Wont the steel wool scratch them up, exposing bare metal that could rust out?

      Just use the steel wool to lightly get off anything that's cooked on to the tips. Soot, etc. If the tips have never really been cleaned, they will probably need it to get everything off.

      Today I pulled off my door trim, A pillar trim, glove box, and driver's side under-dash section, then I mounted my crossovers and ran new speaker wire into the doors. Now I just have to get my new baffles made and I can mount up the new 6.5s, then glue the new tweeters into the factory tweeter extensions and put the doors and A pillars back together. After that I just have to finish the sub box and mount the sub, mount the amp, run the amp wiring, run my speaker wire and interconnects...geeze this project is taking longer than I thought it would. Hopefully it will all be worth it in the end

      Pics of what? I thought about documenting the whole thing but I haven't really taken much time to take pictures so far. It's all pretty much following along the lines of some of the other guys' write-ups, but I will try and be better about taking pictures and put together a write-up once I am all done.
