Re: "Eduardo" -2003 Chevrolet Quigley IFS 4x4 build

Thanks for the response JWA. I'm looking to use the vinyl on the walls and window surrounds. And maybe a few other accents. glued to thin hardboard that will be bolted to rivnuts that I mount in the corresponding places.

I'll likely use the same adhesive to the foam lined headliner cloth to the headliner board.

That is the spray I picked up based on the labels. Good to know it works. Spendy though.

I have the interior about 2/3 done. Finished most of the roof and sidewalls. Used the 3m spray and headliner material for the roof.

I found the bike repair stand worked great as a third hand.

I put in a rv style roof vent with a maxx air vent cover to add some extra ventilation for the back. Because I don't have rear pop out windows. Works well. I leave it open almost all the time.

Built my wall and door panels the same way as the roof. But covered with a marine grade vinyl.

I built sub woofers and speakers into the rear door as well.

I had to build the little trim rings to support the subs and add some depth. The magnet was too deep for the door. The subs are 8in. The speakers were 5 and a half I think. Whatever Walmart had And recommended for fit.

I also added an amp. That sits under the rear bench for now.

2 pair of kicker door speakers. I set in the front doors. One dry in the rear.

I had to add several circuits.

I used two fuse blocks. One is for things I wanted to have available anytime. And are wired hot.

The other is wired hot with a relay to acc. For things I want on with the ignition.

The cheap Tupperware fits nicely under the driver seat and I can pull it out without removing the seat. I don't have a house battery yet but these will get moved to that when I get one installed. This will make it easy to move things around.

I added 12v power on each of the b pillars. For DVD screens on the seats, or whatever needs to be easily accessed. I used an older set of screen DVD players that we've had for a while. Just the strap on kind.

I added combination 12v and dual USB ports for the middle and rear bench. Just on the driver side. I built pockets in the door panel that give a great place for small accessories and the ports sit inside the pockets. They even have a little blue led that lights them up at night.

Re: "Eduardo" -2003 Chevrolet Quigley IFS 4x4 build

I installed a new double din DVD/cd playing deck with touch screen. Bluetooth, usb, ipod, back up camera input.

It's a pioneer avh-271bt. Available at Walmart. Overall I like it a lot. I used the harness adapter and install kit from Walmart as well. The van uses the stereo for alerts and chimes so I guess is required.

I put in a simple on off switch on the parking brake lead so I can play movies for my kids while driving, newer decks now need more then just wiring to ground, they have to sense the change, hence the switch. Just a single flip will make it think I'm parked (which of course is the only time I use it, cause its illegal while moving to be in the drivers view). The dual screens on the seats have the video run to them as well. So three screens will play shows.

I picked up the camera at a local shop, I'm sure it would been much cheaper online. I drilled out the center on the third brake light. Its hard to see but I use the little mounting bracket to set the angle. It screws to the bottom of the light and holds the camera at the angle I wanted. The hole is slightly larger then the camera. The bracket holds the camera in roughly the middle of the body of the camera. So about half sticks out. Like 1/2in or so. I was able to set the angle to where I have only 3 inches behind the bumper that I can't see. It is a fish eye lense. Gives about 50 feet or so of a good view.

It is run to the pioneer deck. The deck activates the camera automatically in reverse and it can be displayed any time while playing whatever audio. I don't think it is super useful in that mode. But it is interesting. Backing up to my trailer is much easier now. And the angle actually sees the rear bumper when the doors are open. It's the curve of the doors that his the 3ins.

Another thing that caused a little troubleshooting was a fuzzy camera pic initially. I initially wired the camera to an unused 12v supply in the back. The power was picking up noise from the speaker wires in the harness. I had to run a clean feed from my new Fuze blocks to clear up the picture.

I didn't get a pic yet but because this was a government vehicle it had a back up beeper that was deactivated. I put a switch on it and use it if I know I'm in congested parkng lots a lot. Like during Ragnar relay it was very useful.

I can also add a different rca Input like a video game system. It's wired but unused for now.

The ipod controls work well when is connected usb and the Bluetooth works great with my Samsung and ipod. It had a mic for phone use as well. I put it on my steering column.

The hardest part of the install was pulling the dash. You have to pull the whole thing for the install.

Re: "Eduardo" -2003 Chevrolet Quigley IFS 4x4 build

Picked up a used custom rack locally. About 4.5 by 10 feet or so. It sits on Thule gutter mount feet and bars. I initially used just two bars. I got another set so I can add a floor to the rack and walk on it, now I really need a ladder.

Any other options besides aluminess?
