    Thought this would be a good ongoing one.

    I'll start:


    I put wood rubrails and wooden divider boards on the truck box.

    Returned the speakers I bought from the store cause they SUKT
    Put in the nice Pioneers that I snagged at the wrecker for 1 nickel

    Also picked up the seats from the wrecker
    Found a set out of a Toyota Passeo - kinda rough, but I can see how they will fit nice

    Also grabbed a set of racing buckets outa a civic
    Don't think they will fit, but it was a seat sale so why not

    they look pretty much like this

    Improved my quality of sound

    Just for sheets n geegles
    (seems to be a lot of that with these trucks)

    In an attempt to have a better - fuller - sound system
    ( and be a cheap-a$$ as well )

    I wanted to try some little dome tweeters on the dash

    I figured all the tenny boppers in their civics have em why not me?

    I was not willing to pay the $40-$50 I have seen them for in the store
    so I got on ebay and lo-and-behold $1 and $1.29 to ship

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=140430898905&viewitem=&sspagename=STRK:MEWNX:IT#ht_2356wt_1165

    Soo I says to myself - self - why not - I'll by that for a dollar...

    Under a week to ship them here

    They were TINY
    About the size of a loonie around and about 3/4 of an inch thick

    Thought they were gonna suck bad
    But I tried em anyway

    Holy krapola batman !! :eek:

    They sound great!!

    Just enough to give it a more spacious sound

    I just ordered a few more
    I want some up on the pillars behind the seats, above my head

    they come with 2 way tape for mounting the little holders
    the speakers snap right in to the holder

    NOW who's spankin munkie butts???!!!

    IMG00134-20100830-1802.jpg

    To be on the safe side I added the helper leaf springs i found while cleaning out some of the garage the other day.

    IMG00131-20100829-1352.jpg

    They gave it a little lift
    And hopefully a little more capacity

    May have to do an actual lift kit, but we will wait and see

    Painted my steel rims for my "street tire" set of wheels semi-gloss black.

    Finished painting the bed.

    Went a little white trash and installed a black skull stick shifter knob:D

    Took it the gas station and filled it with premium.

    Played Joan Jett's greatest hits....:cool:

    Today I ordered my new coil springs

    After putting on my wheel spacers
    And my 13 inch wheels

    The bigger wheels make a big difference
    a much smoother ride

    But now I find out that I need a bit of a lift

    Had to stick more coil spacers in just to even things out
    This of course sucked

    Makes for a pretty rough ride

    This of course forced me to do a ton more reading on the forum

    I found all the right info

    Tried finding something that will work at a couple different local parts places
    WOW do they suck nutz!

    Thanks to the info on the forum I found a local hot rod shop that brings in the right springs

    Today I removed my struts and
    measured the springs to be sure of the size.

    All is good, springs are ordered now.
    Can't wait to see the improvement.

    Springs should be here in a few days

    Wood bed rails

    Looks cool, I haven't added as of yet but was thinking of hard wood bed flooring? :)

    Sounds good, teak wood is the best if you can get it I think.

    My truck is actually sheet metal bed sitting on top of 3/4" teak plywood.
    That then sits on 2x4 teak "joists" and they span the steel truck frame.

    So........ "wood is good"

    Show pics when you get the wood done.

    I had 1x4's in the box in my last wood bed truck
