Unbelievable. Makes me want to rethink my tweeter install before I even begin. That's some awesome work. You are obviously talented. Maybe I should send you my pillars. How much does a pillar job like that cost, minus the speakers & the install?

I didn't build them a friend of mine did. My total cost just for the pillars was $750. The entire audio system is probably close to $7500 including all my speakers/subs, the sub box, headunit w/interface, 3 amplifiers, sound deadening, power and ground cables (0,4,8,gauge), speaker wires, and rca cables....and I did all the work myself except for the A-pillars.

That is very sweet. Would love to hear your system. Way over my budget though. I inquired to SkizeR on DIYMB, unfortunately he would need the car there to make some. Just not possible for me.

So those actually fit on top of the existing mirror cover? Looking at it closer, that's what it appears to be. Did they fit without modifications? They look good. I did not notice that it wasn't OEM. That's a nice find. Thanks.
I May try to fabricate/somewhat duplicate your pillars but my plan is to use my viffa tweeters & keep with xtreme revolution's SQ build as I have most everything to do it now. Just waiting on his door baffles and then I can start the install. I really want your pillars. I will order some new pillars from GM to hack up, just in case I'm not successfull. They're actually fairly inexpensive. The Modified pillars will change the off axis response a bit & may require a tune adjustment. I just hope when all is said & done that the factory head unit lives up to my expectations.

Nice. Those are very inexpensive. Made in China, what a surprise. How is the quality & fit? Did you have to modify them in any way to fit good?

Nope...just cut hole for your tweeter and put the oem fasteners on and they go on exactly like the oem panel.
