Thanks! See post 4! Or for a better comparison, see here:




I'm off to the store to get some more 7/16ths fine threaded bolts, and pick up a single 5x7 speaker so I'll have some tunes!

Nice, I bet that 360 will pull a trailer with 3 maybe even 4 big mowers on it. You should have no trouble getting the lawns mowed during the week and out to the camping and wheeling spots on the weekends. Plus with this big beast you have all kinds of room for loading your guns up and hitting the desert for some shooting.

So, you all know from my other threads that I'm a ridiculous picture whore...suck it up.

Well, ran into a little trouble with the Stereo system...as advanced as it is...The 5x7 I picked up is about 1/2" too deep, and i cant fit the stereo back in the slot. I stuck it into the "glove box" for now, but I think there is a plus side to this...I now have a place for my CB to sit.

CB will be happening in the weeks to come, gotta find an appropriate mounting spot for the antenna.

Anyway, on with the pictures....

Aahhhh, this looks like it'll do the job. And look at that, it comes with a spare!


Out with the old, in with the new. Little bit of a difference?


High-Tech stereo system here...10 year old jensen tape deck and a single 5x7.


Big ole mess for connecting 2 wires...


Everything is in place! no one will steal my crappy tape deck that they cant even see! Looks like that hole is about right for a Uniden or Cobra unit....perfecto! Now I can leave the ashtray where it is.


Funny how the entire dash is 100% perfect except for this....it was half broken so i just cut the rest out leaving a gaping hole...



wait what hole?


i love her...

Ah ok, just wasn't sure if you were gonna trim that fender up. I think you should, even if it is a "classic".
