Hey guys been a while since I've posted on here in VS section but I've been TDY for a little while saving my money up and one of my spring projects is the interior. It's been dirty noisy and outdated since I bought the truck so I figured it was time for some changes.

So I ordered some sound dampening first from a company in Canada called B-Quiet they make a very comparable sound dampener to dyna mat but they make it in a few different grades/forms. I bought 62 sq ft and came up a little short so I bought another 50 sq ft just because I want it tomb like in the cab.

So after ordering the sound dampener I took all the interior pannels out I cleaned them all to like new condition with rags, simple green and a plastic scrub brush.

I got the headliner and sun visors redone at the local apholstery shop.

I'm still waiting on that last 50 sq ft of sound dAmpener to come in after I install that though I'll be ready to go on an audio shopping spree.

I went to the local audio shop called premier autosound they quoted me $1800 for a new alpine head unit, 4 alpine type R door speakers, an alpine 3 channel amp, and JL dual 8" subs with a very nice ported box. That's the price for all that plus installed.

Not sure if I'm going to get it done by them but I haven't got a clue when it comes to sound systems or wiring. Can any of you guys help me with this or maybe refer me to a different shop I noticed their prices were marked up like $75-$100 on each of the speakers. Not sure if that just covers their labor cost to install or what.

So I'll take any help or advice I can get with this sorry for the long read.
