Started on driver's side door, had to order a new carrier plate and wiring harness. Still waiting on those pieces to arrive before we can reassemble.





This is what happens when you abandon an iPad in the dash project (wonder if there is enough room to put the Ultimo SC here... )





Thinking I may use the included tweeter pods that came with the Morel set to mount right on the A-pillar and aim them:



And thinking about putting the crossover in the kick panels, exposing just the "half-moon" shape and keeping the terminals covered underneath:





Plenty of room to fabricate a nice mounting plate for the mids in each door panel - also waiting on the XTC foam baffles to arrive so we can see if that will solve our water splashing on the back of the mids problem.

Boy theres not much to the door panels when you take that carrier plate off. Is it worth it in your opinion to do deadening? Would you mind snapping a quick picture of the inside of the carrier panel before you throw it back on?

Those dash pics make me cringe...what are you going to do there?

I don't recall many rattles or vibrations in the doors as far as sheet metal goes, but the door panels and carrier plate, WOW. Those buzz and rattle like crazy when you get a strong mid bolted in the door. I'll be applying more of the rubber to the inner door and over the carrier plate to try and reduce any road noise and quiet down the interior.

Dash... oh dash. That has been an up and down for me. Seeing the "tiny" single din radio, then looking at that massive gap I made... well it's just discouraging.
