^^ Yeah, at 5am, fully exhausted, and few hours away from a 6+ hour road trip. Smile I'll never forget those last few days on your bus. We killed it.

Thanks. I'm digging this truck too.

JJ did some buffing yesterday. The Single stage shined up soooo nice!

How do you guys usually wire the door speakers? Do you run the wires out from under the interior nose panels across the door gap and then back under the door panels? Or do you drill through the body and doors and run the wires inside?

In this pic it looks like the wires go from interior panel to interior panel. Do you cover the wires with something?

I don't like drilling holes in the jamb.. so we just go from behind the kick to behind the door panel... I would say we generally pul some sort of sheath on customer stuff.. We just leave enough slack you can open the door..

Oil cooler went in yesterday.. as well as some more assy.. Took some of my popouts apart and found some matching logo'ed glass for ya and got those together and in... Not much left!
