Default My 2dr Blazer Build

So, I have had the custom Adire/Sundown/PSI Brahmas built for awhile now (see build here), so I needed to get them into use....

I have been working on this for about 2 weeks already, so it will be a slow build. I maybe get an hour or two per weekday evening and a few hours a day on the weekend to work on it. Thats why I held off starting the build log until I had some stuff to show! lol..

Finished up Stage 1 of the build today, Sound Deadening... This truck was a tin can, road noise was crazy loud and everything rattled. I dont think I'll have either of those problems anymore... Or atleast I hope not....

On with the pictures...

Started cleaning the truck out, had most of the accumulated gear in the back, and its going to be walled off, so the back seat will be no more (they were pretty useless anyway).





Gutted the rest of the way








Then I expanding foamed the gaps and coated the inside with Second Skin Spectrum.







Then I had some AlphaDamp that I won awhile back, so I put it to good use... Used it on the roof and doors mainly and a little on the tailgate...



My headliner had some grease stains on it (no idea how they got up there, lol) so I redid it while I had it out...





But before that went back in, the whole roof got a layer of 3/16" CCF...



Then the floor got a complete covering of MLV.... 1lb per sqft, should keep it quiet, lol...





Then I got the wiring for power/ground and the front stage laid in...







Just a little bit of wire, lol...

Then got the front carpet back in...



Thats about all for now... I did also get a new 2way alarm in to replace my "remote start only" unit. No pictures of that though

looks great so far - nice and clean - the product you used - second skin spectrum ? can you explain that a little to me ? it almost looks like it goes on like a truck bed liner type coating ? does it apply with a brush or roller or ? can multiple layers go on for thick coverage or how does this product work ? the doors on my old style burb have some areas that id like to deaden - but standard aplication probably wont work well on some of the strange areas where my window regulator crap mounts up to...
this product looks like it might be the ticket !

Tomb like silence & luxury car quiet with Spectrum

Its a roll/brush on coating. Yes, it can be put on in multiple layers. I had 1 gallon, that did floor, roof, doors and sides of my truck, 2 coats (second floor was a very heavy coat) at about 90% coverage... Instructions say it likes atleat 1 mm coat (which isnt very much). I have atleast that anywhere I put it on. I went 90% or so coverage because I knew I had other products to help with overall dampening...

Not much of an update... but got a few more things done...

Rest of the interior is mostly in....







Then got some CT Sounds Super Tweets mounted in the stock dash location... Not sure if these will be necessary, but I'll put them in now and disconnect or attenuate them as needed...





Now you see them....



Now you don't!



She is drivable once again, so I have been taking it back and forth to work, to see how all that work paid off (or not, lol)....Truck is 1000% quieter now, hardly any rattles or road noise, even with only the console and driver seat in (its like a cave in there)... No more "tin can" "hollow" sounding panels... Tap on the roof or sides and all you get is a "thud" lol...

Hopefully more to come for the weekend!

Little more progress today on a couple things....

Couldn't find any underhood fuse holder options that I liked.... so I made my own, lol...

Started with a project box we had at the shop



And some white lexan scraps



Had some standard ANL fuse holders.. . Then I mounted them to the lexan scraps that I cut down and shaped...







Plasti dipped the holders and the lower part of the box. Then mounted some LEDs under the lexan to light it up a little, lol..











I'll hopefully get this installed tomorrow and get some more pictures then... I also made/have enough parts for another one just like this... not sure if I will use it before my rear battery... will see how that works out when the time comes, lol.

Also got the mount plate for my A pillars laid out and made...







Running a Crescendo RTS silk dome and a FitalPRO 4" in each pillar, and I used some Kicker DS series 4" grills that I ground off the Kicker logo and plasti dipped...

Plan is to work on some fiberglassing tomorrow. I was going to start today, but I found out the Crescendo PWX 6's I want to run in my kick panels, aren't going to fit without some work to the Q Logic kicks I have... So I will hopefully get the A pillars started and modify the Q Logics and get the fuse box under the hood...

Small update.....

I got the fuse box placed under the hood and connected to my battery, using my awesome ToolMaker terminals.... Just beautiful pieces of machined aluminum that function perfectly...









THEN.... I remembered how much I hate fiberglassing, lol... But they should turn out OK...







Didn't take many "during" pictures for fiberglass and sanding, since it make me so ANGRY!!!! lol...

But they are drying tonight with a coat of bondo on them... more sanding and filling tomorrow, YIPPY!!! lol



More to come, as soon as I can... getting tired of listening to Pandora on my phone (using the phone speaker) while I drive... Need. More. Bass. lol
