    Restoring my Marauder...

    Figured most of you haven't seen their interiors this torn apart so I'd share what mine looks like before the rest goes back together.

    Sorry man, I donít do the book. But I do recall mine stripped to bare metal and a rather large hole cut in the floor so I can envision yours.

    I don't do FB either, but I do plan on replacing my carpet very soon...I have the carpet, but don't want to try and take on the project alone.

    How long did it take to remove seats/console/door trim/etc? Couple hours? Half day? All day?

    I've been working in stages, so it was a couple days, plus I have been doing a bunch of wiring as well. But I'd say a few hours to gut enough to do the carpet. Make sure you have a T-30 torx bit to disconnect the 2 seat belt bolts.
    I'd say the most time consuming part is removing the seats, but even that's not that bad.

    Heres a pic of it gutted and the wiring done, and the start of reassembly.

    Also, if you all have a better suggestion for hosting pics and vids that will work well for posting here, please share your suggestions .

    Tapatalk app. One click and done. You chose not to utilize the wiring trays down the sides? I had all my powers on one side and speakers on the other with plenty of room still. Plus you only have to remove the sides and rear seat. I guess this way you can give her a good vacuuming!

    I've had the center console out and the side trim pieces out before for car stereo purposes, just never have removed everything at once before. I have the power wire from battery running up the passenger side and into trunk, RCA cable from head unit to amp in trunk running up the middle, and all other wires needed from front of car to back of car running up the drivers side.

    I have the wire channel on the passenger side running the power for the amp and the power for the power distribution block. I put all this wiring in the middle in order to save the drivers side channel for RCA's when I di get the amp and new speakers all around.

    Restoring my Marauder...

    Good for you checking the lamps. When I did mine I didnít realize LEDS werenít reversibleÖ Oops, at least I learned something that day. Try to learn something everyday or else life gets dull.

    Now go clean your garage. Shame on you!

    Yeah, you can see the shifter handle preemptively connected just to make sure the OD light operated too...
    As for the mess of the garage, thats my Pops mess.... although it was even worse a few months ago. I just keep slowly throwing out useless junk when he's not looking.

    Super jealous seeing you in a short sleeve shirt leisurely working outside!

    Currently -1 here in the western burbs of Chicago. Iíve got a detached garage with zero insulation and just drywall on the walls but I do have a commercial size hanging forced air heater and have had it up to 87* with 18Ēs of snow outside back when I had to bypass the thermostat once. Oops, no wonder why I was sweating profusely.

    Still, itís a matter of suiting up, going out to start the heater, going back in for 30 minutes, and going back out. First world problems.. I should be thankful to myself for working enough to have what I have but the mood just isnít there on these cold days. I would more thankful to myself if I worked harder and bought a second home in Florida!!
