Re: 1971 2wd Great Motor Carriage..... Sprucing up my Jimmy!

I'm having a hard time uploading pics, I received the Restomod Air kit. I am really impressed with the kit, the quality seems to be much better than the Old Aire products or Vintage Air kits I have used

Closer and Closer. Some of the audio items arrived today, I have always a good stereo but I don't make it a focal point of the vehicle, I like for it to be hidden and very tasteful! Im not looking to shake the neighbors, just for my own enjoyment while driving!

Great work on this jimmy. Was the body pretty good or did you have some repair work to do?

Good luck, Rg

Hey - I just pinged you on IG the other day about your audio set up. Looking forward to seeing how it all comes together! Awesome Jimmy.

It was pretty good, there was an issue at the top of the windshield frame! Also a couple spots in the top of the bed rails at the rear, we also found a couple of issues underneath but nothing to bad!

I am a bit interested also, since its mini tubbed the entire bed will be upholstered. Right now the plan is to have 2 10s firing to the rear at a 30-45 degree angle, 2 8s firing forward behind the rear seats at the same angle, the rear seat would be in between the 8's, then the 6.5s in the kick panel, more than likely the highs in the kick panel and the 3.5s in the dash, the front setup will be running full active! The dash unit is the Avic 8400, we wanted the 8500 but its not out yet! we ordered a processor that I can tune the crossover and gains from my phone!

I would have been more surprised if there hadn't been! I had to cut out the top part of mine and weld in a replacement.

Good luck, Rg
