Not much else to report.

Re: SkinnyG's '61 Apache

Way back, I added more slots in the dash so I could fit two 5.25 coaxials in the dash.

Not much in the way of mid/low bass there, so....

Added some 6x9 boxes for some rear fill. Primed and ready for paint.

Re: SkinnyG's '61 Apache

Waiting on speaker connections off Amazon. Should be here by Wednesday. Looking forward to more sound.

Got plates on the truck to haul the rest of Dad's junk that the thrift stores wouldn't take.

FUN driving the truck around. Holy carp this thing scoots!

Building a small, high rpm engine with the perfect bore, stroke and rod ratio is very impressive.
It's like a highly skilled Morrocan sword fighter with a Damascus Steel Scimitar.....

Cubic inches is like Indiana Jones with a cheap pistol.
