    Took delivery yesterday of the 304 Stainless mesh for the speaker grills.







    Just like we used different widths on the trim rings so they would be proportional to the diameter, with the mesh we used three different sizes as well..











    For the bass speaker grill we are also adding a BelAir emblem. The mesh will be recessed for that so the emblem is flush, then the remaining mesh will be pressed outward so it is flush with the surface of the trim ring. (or so) Now for the unofficial poll, would you orient the mesh straight across/up and down, or at a 45 degree rotation?

    Horizontal looks better, and similar to the front grill.

    I think it depends on what the rest of the interior design is. If there's rectangles and blocks and a lot of horizontal or vertical lines, I'd go with the horizontal. If there's some diamond shapes or angular lines, I'd go with the 45 degree. On the other hand, the 45 might break up an otherwise "boring" interior. I'd ask the customer......both look good to me.

    With the emblem embossed flush into the screen I’d say diagonal.

    Thanks to all for their input on the speaker grilles, the owner has decided on the 45* rotation. Our other choice to ponder was whether to use chrome, polished, or brushed finish. We clamped some of the rings in the lathe and gave it a brushed finish, others were polished so we can compare..











    Here it was decided to go with the polished over brushed, and for ease of maintenance, we opted for chrome plating. So all the holes were drilled, counterbored, and transferred to their respective mounting location. The tweeter trim rings will be held in place with 6-32 hardware, the mids use 8-32, and the sub uses 10-32. Rivet nuts were installed where needed..

















    With the trim rings ready to send for plating, we turned our attention to the fuel lines, where we wanted a direct run all the way to the tank. Our bending efforts found Mike in a bit of a stretch..





    The fuel line passes behind the body mount, we have a heat deflector in place where it passes over the tail pipe, and then it will connect directly to the tank. They will be secured with adel clamps fastened to the floor braces from underneath. Return line in place, supply line to go:
