I asked Roger to come over and bring his Ranchero so i could get measurements to mount my tonneau. He did, and we did. Here is a pic of the result.

Nice work guys! I love the way those things look and I'm sure they're especially useful up here in the wet NW.

Wow! Didn't realize, I hadn't posted to this thread for quite some time. My Lexus buckets aren't even in here. Another thread is going on regarding audio system, and it reminded me to post this pic. I didn't go anywhere near as fancy as some of the systems in you guys' cars, but here's my old school, simpler approach (Bazooka). It sounds good, even though not the fanciest (I don't like the THUMP!).

I don't recall Jim Reeves having much thump - but it'll help make him sound gooder than before. Can't wait to hear it!

Buttoned up the first of my current winter projects! Installed the 1-wire alternator I had purchased this past summer. Added a fuse block as others have done to facilitate this. The positive terminal on the starter solenoid was getting very short with quite a few in-line fuses hanging from it, so this is now a bit cleaner. I got an unexpected benefit. The engine bay is now a bit quiter. The old alternator must have been getting a bit long in the tooth. This one is quieter.

On to the next project.

Can't beleive it's been 2 years since i added to this thread! I have always hated the color of the carpeting I put in my car! So.... for one of my winter-time projects, I'm changing to a much more pleasing (to me) color. Dark Blue. The old was a much lighter blue that the missus called garish blue. I recently acquired a full box of Dyna-Mat that I will add to the bed-liner material I previously applied. WIAI, I never replaced the firewall pad, so that's in the mix, too. Also, WIAI, the old accelerator linkage is gonna be updated to a cleaner, simpler setup. Whew, that disease is definitely still going around! Oh,yeah.... gotta install the recently re-painted grill also (small change).
Hope I can get it all done B/4 the upcoming show season.

Good luck Gene, let me know if you need help. As soon as I get this stupid rear end back in my car, I am so darn lazy lately, but will try to get mine done asap. Larry

Some of you may remember way back when.... I was doing the refurbish of the interior of my car, I tried doing the floor pans with a brush-on bedliner material in an effort to reduce road noise in the cab. I suppose it worked to some degree, but I was never really satisfied.
I recently acquired some Dyna-Mat (left over from my son's Mustang project) and am hoping for better results this time around. So... in my little version of WIAI with my re-carpeting project.....
Tomorrow... the hump, then on to the carpet install.

Looking good Gene! It'll be so quiet in there you may have to get some louder mufflers.

Looking forward to hearing about this installation, as I am considering the same thing for my 64 Comet, and possibly my 47 Plymouth.

Keep us posted...thanks!

Adding something like Dynamat is the best thing I've done to all my cars so far. These old cars create a lot of road noise you won't realize was there until it's gone.

Though technically you don't need to do the full coverage as Gene did (or I and many others have done) to deaden a panel, it never hurts to cover everything. If cost of the material is an issue, you can deaden a pretty large panel with just a 1' square of Dynamat cut and placed about the panel. If you want a dead-silent vehicle, the more the merrier.
