Depends were you want your speaker, Rules of thumb
1) Do not cut steel frame more than 20% larger than nearest hole
2) Use pods/spacers to mount you speakers into this way you can put in larger, different shaped, custom designed enclosures, etc that do little damage to original trim and can be removed later if you so chose.

Assuming that you are putting speakers in to front door panels:

Remove door trimming and take note of removed components (Take pic's as you go it's easier)

Compare original speaker to new ones (in particular the depth of the cone) Factory tend to be shallow while after market ones deeper for better sound. Note depth difference.

Try your new speaker in the rough location you want it and wind down your window all the way and see if it will interfear with the mechanisms of the door. If it clears everything your laughing and just have to unscrew the old and replace with the new or...

Now the fun bit do the math on how much the difference is and how much you will have to space it out for it to fit into the door with out interfering with it's components, decide if you can deal with the speaker sticking out as far as it has to to fit, or can it be put in a different location. (Have a friend or family member help you with this so your hands are free to sit in your seat and feel it out, no point in putting it in if your not going to be happy with the end result)

Once your happy with your positioning make a blank up of a pod out of MDF (NOTE: MDF when cut/sanded creates toxic dust use appropriate Respiratory Protective Equipment (R.P.E.) such as a P2 paper mask as well as Personal Protective Equipment (P.P.E.) e.g. safety glasses, hearing protection and gloves) to make a shape that blends in with your doors contours and has a hole big enough for your new speaker to fit into. Dose not have to be perfect just yet as you shall have to mold it to suit what you want it to look like. Take your time and sit it in place till you are happy with the shape and placement. Make sure door closes and opens with pod.

Use this Blank to cut out a second pod just like this one (for the other door)

Shave off sharp corners

Match fabric to door trim (or go all out and highlight it in a contrasting cloure/pattern/texture)

If fabric stretch it over pod and staple into place (better yet glue some thin foam to pod first then use some spray addehisive to attach fabric to foam then stapel behind the pod to hold securely)

Vinal is a different story and requires spray adhesive heat and working it into position then stapling.
Good Idea to place speaker cage into place and secure to hold fabric around it. (Cut away excess in both cased inside cage and behind pod for a flat joining)

Mount speaker to pod and lay pod on a table placing door trim over it. Maneuver to correct position and use correct sized screws to join them together.

Connect wires

Test speaker

Replace modified door trim on to door

Repeat on opposite door

Fin.

HOW CAN I CHANGE THE SHIFT KNOB ON MY 2000 FORD EXPEDITION


The shift knob is part of the shifter handle. The overdrive shift button assembly and button cover are replacable seperately. To remove the button, simply pry off the cover, pull out the button and replace. reverse the order to assemble.

To remove the shift handle, remove the ignition cylinder by turning to the run position and pushing a small pin, drill bit or allen wrench into the hole on the bottom of the trim cover hole to release the ignition cylinder. Pull the cylinder out. Next remove the screws from the bottom column trim cover and remove the upper trim. Next, remove the pin from the shifter and disconnect the electrical connector. Replace the shifter and reassemble. Good luck, please ask for more information if you can't leave four thumbs up. Have a great day!

How do I lay lino round the base of the toilet?


Mark out and cut the base of the bowl size, using a old Cornflakes packet is useful, cut the hole and behind the bowl part of the cardboard test piece cut to the edge in a straight line. The cardboard will now open (a bit like a keyring) and alow the cardboard cut out hole to be placed around the base of the toilet bowl. Trim it to fit perfectly.
When you have the exact size in you cardboard cornflakes packet, transfer the cut out on to your lino, cutting in a straight line at the rear of the lino where is will not be seen, to allow fitting over the bowl. Trim your lino edges and there you have it, lots of scrap cardboard but a professionally fitted lino floor covering.
I hope that helps.

No, you need to cut a hole. Usually an access panel is provided during the initial installation, either in the ceiling from downstairs or in the other side of the adjacent wall. But it's pretty easy to add one. After you cut a nice rectangular hole, you can cover it with a piece of painted plywood that has a trim piece attached to the plywood. The plywood is held in place with a couple of screws. When you remove the panel, the trim stays attached to the plywood. When you place the panel in the hole, the trim covers the gap between the drywall and the plywood.
