Iv'e been watching this site for a while and have gotten alot of good info from all of you, many thanks! I decided to register and share my project with others in this forum. I'm working on my 1985.5 Porsche 944 non turbo. Many of the Porsche pureists would cringe to see what I will be doing with my car (sortof de-porsching it a bit) but I want a unique car. Here's some photos of the current state of my project. I welcome any comments and I hope I can ask some of you some questions on car audio in future.

Its hard to tell from those 2 pics on what exactly it is, but I checked out your cardomain page, and it looks like you got ALOT more work to do... but the end result should look pretty kick ass! :) keep us updated!

Thanks, I basically removed the rear seats and am turning the seat cavity into a speaker box for Xplod 6x9's , then I molded some pods for the Xplod 6.5" speakers. I will have Xplod 5.25" in the door panels in custom pods and tweeters on the A-pillers. I am mounting 3 Sony amps in the trunk and a Xplod 12" sub in the spare tire well. I'm going for sound quality rather than power / spl. If you noticed I have removed the rear hatch and made a custom rear deck with a trunk.

I like the concept but i don't get why u went with SONY XPLODE for the kind of $$$ your probably putting into this car i would have gone with a higher end audio like ALPINE for exaple.

Yes I will be spending quite a bit on the car but I can't afford to spend a ton of $$$ on a sound system.I would much rather hear my engine revving. The Sony Xplod stuff is within my budget and I'm spending more on my suspension,performance, braking system and paint. As long as the sound is clean I don't need alot of volume or power.

Thanks for your input

P.S  Porsche parts aren't cheap!!! My first fiberglass projects -- posted image.

You should of worked on making it smoother when you pulled the material.
A lot of creases that will seriously increase your work load.
