next was getting speakers and speaker pods. painted the speaker pods with SEM and had to cut the door panel up a little and install some phoenix gold comps. paint looks like a closer match in person, pics makes it seem more off than it actually is
bought a stereo install kit from wal-mart along with a factory harness adapter. installed my old alpine head unit... then realized it didn't support steering wheel control for the monte carlo steering wheel swap...
then i browsed some car audio classifieds and found a pioneer head unit that does... bought the head unit, axxess steering wheel control adapter, and a relay to do a parking brake bypass so i can play video while driving (was easier than hooking it up properly)
then i decided i was going to add a center console... spent a day at three different junk yards building a complete blaze console. took it home, pressure washed it, disassembled, painted, reassembled and realized i didn't like the way it would sit in there... at least im only out a days worth of work and $13.50 that i paid for the console
