how hard is it to fit after market components into the front doors and can u just cut the grill out and put them in or do the door cards need to be taken off?!

also what size speakers fit most easily into them?!

last question! Should i get components or coaxials?!?

cheers!!

easy to get off mate, screws along the bottom and in the handle then pop rivets the rest. Try to pull them off evenly so not to leave any of the pop rivets stil in the door else they are a bit of a twat to get out
