Well I want to finish removing the interior,
Install new floor, After sealing holes in floor.
Install insulation & sound deading material.
Re-install 3/4" MDF lower walls.
Rebuild speaker towers to add 10" subs, Install.
Reinstall old bed set-up with some changes!!
Some of those changes are; Use 3/4" MDF to replace 1/2" so I can remove some other supports.
Cut-outs in inner bed walls to install plexi to view amps,caps,dist blocks ect.
Change 12 disk CD changer mounting for better access to change disks.
Add gas cylenders to hold hinged bed up.

Then install new upper walls, new door panels Recover headliner, replacing wood support strips with polished stainless.
Also new carpet, seats ect..

Can't forget the new head unit with DVD playback and two 7" moniters, 30 band EQ, Add at least two more batteries and 200 amp alt.

Oh yea, Speaker towers will get the fibreglass treatmeant along with some of the other MDF. All MDF will get multible coats of primer/sealer, before paint or cover treatment.

Should keep me busy....
