    Default 57 Bel Air Stereo Install (lots of pics)

    Went to do an install on a 57 Bel Air Convertiable. Car is in the process of a full restoration. LS1 5.7L fuel injected under the hood, car is amazing and absolutely beautiful. Now its just waiting for upholsterly. Has mid 90s Caddy Eldorado seats in the front, and the rear buckets are out of an Infiniti. They will all be re upholstered to match the car. Customer decided on an Eclipse navigation unit and an extra screen in the back that they fabricated the whole center counsel for. Origonally EDI6000s were going to go in the doors and in the back of the center counsel, but depth screwed us in the doors, and in the back we decided to put them above where an arm rest will be because on the floor they would have been way blocked.

    Went with a nine4 which you actually cant see because its hidden but there will be a pic later. Polk 6.5s in the doors because they are shallow enough to work, and polk 4"s in back, which the upholstere is going to cover so basically you wont really see them. Door speaker grills may be changed to something more like the edi 6000 grill but we are waiting till the car get upholstered. A nine2 and 11kv will most likely also be going in in the next few weeks. Ok enough yappin here are the pics. Might I add the car sounds suprisingly good especially considering where the rear speakers are.

    Great looking car and install so far! Makes me glad I am out of the car audio install game now. :D I figure, I did my duty from 1979 till 2001.

    Can't wait to see the finished product!

    GORGEOUS car... that's not a restoration though -- that's a full out modernization and build while staying loyal to its chevy heritage... very very very nice.
