Floor pan replace and re-finish and custom speaker brackets

Recommended Posts

I recently felt my foot falling lower in the floor, so i pulled the carpet rubber and Rot... I however didnt want to spend monies on new floor board halves. I cut up some sheet metal for replacement and beat it to fit.


I made custom rear speaker brackets to fit on OEM take 4x8 kicker speakers and not require destruction of oem grill. Here are some pictures of my project...


I used the rustoleum truck bed liner.. I used Just shy of an entire gallon in just the cab giving it about 4 coats total. the first was very thin. I learned on the third coat that you should have the gallons shaken at the local paint shop as just stirring it did not mix it well enough.. so my third and forth coats were grittier than the first.. Overall it looks good, but is still curing. It seems although it's dry to touch even laying a screwdriver down on it for 5 minutes still leaves a mark.

The speaker bracket has same Overall length of stock, however the deep lip is bent in so the mounting surface could be larger.. It is wider to fit the larger speaker. If you can find metal stock that already has a corner lip for the entire length it made a huge difference in rigidity.

I neglected to take a picture of the brackets installed and painted, but they looked damn good IMO and fit behind the stock grill :)
