Personal Note: 2021 has started the way 2020 ended.  The wife and step kids move out Saturday, And my lancer died last Thursday. Packing up there belongings for movers.  This was the wife's decision, she wants time and space according to her  to figure out what she wants.  at this point whatever, i have spent 10 months working on myself, doing for the family, letting her bum of a 26 yrs addict-alcoholic live with us. All to help but in the end shes gone and time for me to move on.

 

 

Build progress:  With the lancer down i am working on getting interior back in, harnesses plugged in to fire up the Malibu. Its time for a change for me too and i would like to drive a  nicer car.  I can always work on it in the garage and drive it without a system and look at the Lancer Later.

Working on center console to minimize rattles.

I had to take it apart as much as possible to add mass and stuff CCF in as many places i thought would help.

Like here between the compartment boxes and otter skin.

The fuse box panel cover on the right i cut a piece of ccf to cover fuse labeling. i used Velcro to attach the ccf to the panel so it is removable   to see the chart.

There was a hole here for a rubber stopper for cup holder tray.

 

 

 

IMG_3079

Now its a LED light for back passanger to see there drink in the rear cup holders. I can put the rubber stopper on on the tray and should work perfectly the same.

Hush Panel for driver side under dash.  I am putting a couple layers on because i can. So i did.

 

 

 

IMG_3089

Finished product on hush panel, turned out pretty good.

 

 

 

 

IMG_3090

On the bottom is dash board end caps with treatment.

 

 

 

IMG_3093

Closer look at them. I am putting Tesa tape on all metal clips to reduce rattling. 

 

 

I don't know how long it will take to finish but i promise i am in no rush. I have come to far to cut corners now.  Plus with the house to myself besides Kona i should be able to make more progress than with little distractions. Daily updates now.

And as always thank you SMD community for your support on both audio & personal events.  It helps!

I am going to miss the shit out of this yapper.  Our first dog and she has a personality you wouldn't believe.

 

Progress is slow with a heavy heart, packing up there stuff in the evenings is hard but only a couple days left until they leave. Then there will be no distractions here to slow me down.
