    And then my last question is should i do Lizard Skin spray in sound deadner

    And heat insulator

    Or just do the heat and sound reflector from LMC in the first link.


    I want it to be quiet as possible and will prolly wrap the exhaust by the floor pan with header wrap to keep it a little more cool.

    Just looking for ideas.

    Are you planning to leave the aluminum exposed, i.e. polished/raw?

    I would think that a darker grey dash would look good with that grey LMC carpet. A little gradient from the dash to the carpet.

    I ended up going with the LMC grey carpet. Just gonna wait till it gets here so i can figure out what color grey powder coat to order.

    Noticed this and thought i was the coolest thing ever..
    Replacement head liner with built in speakers and everything.

    I think im gonna put the sound deadener in the floor under the carpet that LMC sells. If its not enough ill put the lizard skin down later.

    That H/L with the speakers is an O.K. concept, but it's just that they come with really cheap speakers. R-e-a-l-l-y cheap! 10w of handling power? Most decent headunits today put out more than that.
    You can't replace them with better speakers because of clearance issues. ...and, they're a bit of an oddball size.
    Better speakers will also weigh more, too. Which is why those that come with the H/L have such a low power handling capability. No space for a larger magnet. Those with the H/L have wafer thin ones.

    I'd strongly recommend against that headliner. I've read a bunch of people say that if you're a tall guy you'll bump your head on the speakers occasionally. Also from an audio perspective those speaker locations are pretty awful. You want the majority of the sound to be in front of you.

    Oh yea i understand. I just thought it was a neat idea. Ill have 4 speakers in the dash and maybe 2 rears, depends on how the roll cage turns out.

    Looking at spray painting the dash panels with a grey hammered metal paint to see how I like it. Still going to be a month or so before our powder coating booth is setup.
