    You may also want to mention that installers should keep wire out of footwells. People rubbing their feet on areas where wire sits under carpet can cause damage to the wire.


    if you are looking for a good tool to pull wire (such as through the door jamb boot, etc) you may try a plastic quilting needle at a craft store (should be very cheap).
    Even though Marv suggests against it here, I had used a coat hangar that I always keep in my toolbox for these occasions. It does require a bit more of being careful.
    I have fishtape, but it was too thick.

    If you don't want to remove the storage bin, you can route the wire along the door channel and then up behind the trim panel in the rear corners. I didn't notice any sharp edges and it causes less interference with the storage bins.

    hey Marv, I never knew! Happy Belated Birthday.

    For your birthday, I'd like to let you build me an enclosure for no charge.

    Oh yeah, nice router and tool chest. I would have figured a cabinet maker would already have those items though.

    Thanks buddy! :)

    me too! :D

    Thanks! :) I actually already have 3 other tool chests :eek: but this one happened to go on sale at just the right time/price (50% off $1400.00 :eek:) to convince my wife I needed to have it :D and even though I already have several other PC routers I figure you can"t have too many! (plus you don't have to change bits as often! :D)

    Got sizes on all that? Worst thing for me is the many trips I make back and forth to Home Depot to find the right bolt, a different wingnut, etc!

    1/4" x 1 1/2" bolts with washers/nuts work great and M6 x 30mm work great if you do not remove the plastic inserts! :)

    More coming just as soon as I can spare a few more minutes! :)

    Sorry again for the delay guys! (I seem to be saying that a lot lately! :eek:) I finally hired a good helper who has been putting in 10-12 hour days this week along with me and we are finally caught up so I can take some time later to finish this up!
    BTW, my helper dropped everybody's gear at FEDEX (except for Mikes and please call me!) and I'll be sending shipping invoices/tracking numbers today or Monday when I get the bill. Also, I have not been able to get into my gmail for almost a week so if anyone has emailed me there recently without a reply please resend it to mrmarvsplace *at* yahoo *dot* com. Be back soon with the rest of the installation! :)

    Yes, I need to call. Been sick with a pounding headache, and today I'm working - don't think you want a call right now ;) So I'm going to squeak you in tomorrow between an 8 hour meeting and a 4 hour accounting class :p

    Looks like I missed your posting Charles! Glad it's still sounding great and that you guys are enjoying it! :)

    OK guys, I finally found where I stored the last part on my computer :eek: so I'll really post it up this weekend after editing it one more time!

    I also wanted to mention that I am having a group buy on the Hybrid Audio Speakers I used in this truck.
