So, pretty much a wheelin' only forum huh.
Well, system is done, minus one noise issue to troubleshoot that so far a new amp hasn't resolved.
If anyone reading this ever wants to do this, a tip: don't bother removing the round grommets/connector housings in the front lower cowls. You don't need to in order to run speaker wires to the frt doors, just cut a small slit in the boot to pass thru. You will however have to remove the connector housings on the outside of the door openings. Those ones you do not want any holes in for water intrusion.
Just posting an update in the hopes that it may help someone some day. I sure didn't find much in help out there for WK. Feel free to PM me, etc, for any help as well. Once I get the noise issue figured out and tidy up my installation, I'll try to get some final install pics up - in the event anyone cares about audio mods.
