How to give a vinyl finish to a truck audio setup:

Tools Used:
  • Jigsaw
  • Stapler gun
  • Scissors
Products Used:
  • 1/4" MDF
  • Black vinyl
  • 3M spray adhesive
  • AudioPipe NL-02BL - Super Bright Blue LED projectors
Structural work, although not covered in this article, is the most important step in your project. Plan your setup carefully and the process will be much smoother.
This is the general structure of our setup.

MDF is your friend. It's easy to trim as it's wood particle, so you don't have to deal with wood chips. It's nice and uniform, so your finish will be of better quality. It's readily available at any wood lot and is relatively inexpensive.

Here we cut out frames for the amps.

As you can see from the picture, many measurements and calculations went into this simple frame. Test fit often. A router can be used to make minor adjustments.

Cut your vinyl piece using scissors, giving it at least 2 inches of slack all around.
Commence folding the vinyl over to the backside of the piece. The use of 3M spray adhesive may be used to avoid any bubbling of the vinyl. Next use a staple gun to secure the vinyl to the back side of the piece.
Finished look (without the sub... a W7 replaced the Sand King...)

You can use ### to affix the frame without screws showing on the front.

We jazzed it up with Audiopipe projector LEDs, an awesome alternative to bulky neons.
