I must believe that if a little is good, a lot's better. I tried to cover everything I could see, including the bulkhead between the bed and the cab. Got my fingers crossed that it was worth the effort. Carpet project is next and then a few other little WIAIs before I drive it again. I'll let you know if the result is worth it to me.

What Gene? I can't hear you! Too quiet.

Oh, and I think you missed a spot... behind that heater box.

Yeah, I did but didn't think anybody'd notice. Too bad I couldn't coerce you into removing/replacing it for me. Or maybe a tech day? It's everybody's favorite chore.

Gene - if you wanna do it right, you know I'd be happy to come over and stick my head up under your dash. Been there, done that. What's one more time?

Would sure make that other WIAI™ project of the firewall pad so much easier for you.

Doggonit. I hate it when yer right! I guess I better bite the bullet and start pulling the box. It'll make some wire management problems I've made for myself a bunch easier too.

Is that you, Roger?

Pretty simple actually, Don. A normal am/fm, cd, usb w/a couple of Alpine speakers in the kick panels and an old bazooka style sub residing on the floor behind the passenger with a small amp for it on the back bulkhead. I usually have "old country" or gospel on a flash-drive entertaining me. For longer drives I usually have a book (thrillers) in the cd drive. The cab is so small, it sounds great to me (my hearing is pretty abysmal).

Sounds like a pretty nice setup Gene. I'll bet the dynamat makes a nice difference with that.
I looked up "old country" and I got the list attached...yea I can dig it!
I did the same with gospel songs but I didn't recognize many of the songs!

I grew up with my dad being in country bands and a few of those songs I know pretty well and can even play a couple of them myself. I inherited his song book, all hand-written songs going back into the 60's I'm sure, and some times I pick up my guitar and remember him.

OK, so I play country music too. Just that nobody can figure out what country it's from.

Yup. That list is spot-on for the "old country" stuff I like. Gotta get Roger to "pick" for me sometime.

Don't expect to be too impressed. Way better mechanic than I am guitar player. I do OK in the rhythm section. Pick'n hasn't ever been my forte.

Yea...I used to do a little picking too.
(Really...I'm a trumpet player believe it or not...paid for my college with that.)
But I have a guitar and used to play some of the classic rock stuff as well as most John Denver...and I took a classic guitar class in college too. (I had to get my grades up somehow...)
It would be pretty pitiful today though.
Sounds like our jam session would be pretty weak, we better stick to falcons.

Several months ago, I commented in another thread that an upcoming project for me was going to be upgrading to EFI. Back in December I decided to use the FiTech, Go EFI 400 and Command Center fuel pump.

After waiting for our weather to warm and dry a bit, I got started on it last week with assistance/encouragement from Roger (actually, I assisted him).

Today we got it running, although it appears to be running very rich. My feeling at this point is that not all of the factory settings were at default. Soon I'm going to do the procedure to set all at default and try it again. The system is supposed to learn as it's driven to tune itself.

In the attached pic, the Command Center is in the foreground.
