Finished my Stereo upgrade/Interior painting !

Long post, well I got my 4th stereo upgrade done and also painted up some of my interior parts while I had the interior all tore up. I remove my old Kenwood h.u. and installed a new Kenwood KVT-819DVD unit, andd 2 new RCA RC80HV 8" headrest monitors. Removed my old Kickier RS5 components from my kick panel pods and indtalled them in an jeep/truck speaker pod in the front floor. I added a pair of Focal K2 Power 165KF components in the front kick panel pods. I removed the Kicker 8" midbass speakers from the front doors and installed new JL audio Z series 8" midbass speakers and added another amp a JL audio 300/2v2 slash 150 watts RMS per channel amp to power the 8" midbass speakers. I cut holes in the back doors and added another set of Kicker RS% component speakers there, then I cut holes in the rear pillar anf installed aother set of Focal K2 Power 165KF speakers with a Focal K2 Power 130KP 5" midbass and matching crossover to make a 3way in the rear pillar. Later I will replace the 2 sets of kicker components with some Focal K2 power 130KP components. I added a Kenwood rear camera. I painted all the door panels and pillar panels a black metallic and towards the top I faded in dark shaow gray metallic. I used some Alsa killer cans and painted some dash and trim peices dark metallic blue then shot purple kandy and clear over that. Painted the seat with some SEM paint that turn out fair. Anywaytook me well over 100 hours to get it done.

















Painted the outside mirrors to match the body dark shadow gray . Here is the link to more before and after pictures.

Sorry for the bump but I just wanted to say the inside looks so nice. Did you do any more mods?
