Default B Pillar in a ranger with 2 Hdc4 18's

Not really a true build log, but some random pics i took along the way.

It needs trim panels, carpet, finished and secured port. Planned to make more progress this weekend but my debit card # got stolen so everything is on hold.
fml


conduit to protect the front to back 3/0 welding cable, no chances taken here


battery/amp box to go in the bed


fed the old boxes to the sky


fixed some rust from the bedliner.





screw unions, should be more durable than rubber grommets

when getting that wood to stick to the roof... is it just stuck by expanding foam or? lol.. I've never done that but always wondered how the hell it's being held up there ( the smaller pieces, didn't see screw holes in them )

Damn, spray foam sticks like that? Did you use 3/4 for it and will your headliner still snap into place?

Its double layered 3/4''. I wanted minimal flex. I am going to trim the factory headliner to fit around the border to cover up all the sheet metal and then cover everything in fur lol

And yea, that stuff sticks hard as hell lol I was told to go that route by several walled people, and told to use the regular red can foam

What kind of port did you use with the depth and the "step up" on the bottom, I'm trying to picture how the port worked. Looks good though.

It's a center port that goes in between the seats up to about an inch from the roof. The port itself is 3" external and goes about 9 inches into the box including baffle thickness

OK. I think I've got the idea. Usually I see walls that use the entire height for port. That being when the shell can be entirely flat/squareish. Nice work utilizing all the space.
