And the final part; over 2 hrs of careful stretching, stapling, cutting and tucking until it was all done. The gaps are perfect, the material is tight and the blind speaker plug receivers are invisible under the foam and Alcantera. They may be used for the final trim piece, yet to be designed and built.
Apologies about the post and picture rampage, but I thought it made sense to detail all these steps, since this is a very unusual project, even in the car audio world. About 90% completed; the last trim piece(s) and speaker install is only going to take a day or two. May decide to build a speaker flush trim / beauty panel; that will have to wait until the car is actually back together and driving.
Next step is to make up and install the two large L+R wiring harnesses, finish the insulation and start the carpet installation. Hoping that, along with the completed upper trim panel will be done by the end of this coming weekend, after I return from Cleveland. Took my son to the Syracuse Nationals this past weekend, simply breathtaking workmanship and ideas galore. Will do a separate post on that.
