what wood did replacing the front wall of the bed is optimal but not necessary.

here's my tips;

make sure to round the corners of your cut. using a 3" hole-saw in the corners works well. {drills are consumables}

check the bed side of the blowthrough's bottom clearance before cutting.

check the cab side of the blowthrough's top clearance before cutting.

I use Harbor freight - High Speed Metal Saw - 'body saw'

I shorten the blades about 3/4" and they don't bend as easy.

the blades do not stay in the middle of the guide. just pick a side of the guide and let the blade ride against it.. then you'll be able to cut a straight line.

nailed it. i only replaced that front piece because it just simply unbolted. when i took the blowthrough out i just put the old piece back in. very convenient...

depending on the tools you have access too is going to decide a lot. i have a welder/plasma cutter so it was fairly simple for me. i have heard of people just using cutoff wheels.

rounding the corners is crucial. join the boot on the bottom. i am getting a bed cover this time around. glassing and sealing the box to the bed was a pain. it leaked at first but got it sealed up finally.

Cut the bed before you cut cut the cab, the cab sits lower than the bed.

I've done 2 blowthroughs in a s10, both with 12s. 15s is gonna be hard with Te height. If you slant them it won't be to bad. If you have any questions feel free to pm me.

Also, the cab vent is right in the way, so best thing is to take out the vent and cut a piece of metal and epoxy it in place.
