    So the old ones were made of crummy carboard stuff, wrapped with cheap vynle, and had ceased holding up the rear speakers. So I built new ones! 1/2" thick plywood, leftover new carpet, a staple gun, an air powered saw, some outdoor wood sealer, a utility knife, and some self-tapping screws. It pretty much muted all the road noise in the cab, and I have rear speakers again! The bed carpet was all manner of nasty too, and I still had some extra new stuff.

    I expect to hear 70's porn music when looking at these picture with Barry White saying "OHHH YEEAAAHH!!" Looks good.

    6x9's? Factory size? Did you use the ratty cardboard for a template? I'm not a shag fan but I think the hard plastic idea is good.

    Thanks guys! It took about 3 hours to build and install. (that doesn't include wood sealer curing time) The Fj60 (Shaggin) Wagon. :D

    The speakers are 4x6's. And I did use the rotten cardboard as a template, just lined up two edges on the plywood and traced it around with a pencil. Where the clips were that held it on is what I used as reference for where to pre-drill the holes for the screws. The hard part was cutting out the wood because I couldn't get my hands on a jiggsaw. I would imagine that plastic cuts the same as wood, and it would be invincible to the elements if your wheel wells are rusting out like mine are.

    depends of course on the purpose :D , but if my cargo area had deep carpet it would be a doghair-dirt-rocks-woodsplinter-cathair-fishscale-sand-moldy-mess pretty fast.

    Shagging can get messy.
