yeah the interior was black with that odd blue in the seats  but the outside of the car was red and matched pretty good.

well I started with the floor as one peice, then cut it in the design I wasted,then built the box witch is actually very small, its a little over 1qubic foot( one of the subs is a boston G5 sub the other is a passive radiator not actually a sub.) then I built the front and top covers as one peice and realized they wont fit in the car as one peice. the inside of the trunck is alot wider the the opening of the trunck. I decided to cut them with a little gap and used a circle ring to make the cut out on top. so the middle of the floor and the box are covered in red sude(sude does not stretch it was kind of a bitch to get it to lay in the oval in the floor), the sides of the floor and the covers over the box that flush it out are in a vinyl that has a carbon fiber look( it is pretty easy to work with it stretch's REALLY easy and is very easy to get stretch marks in the vinyl and you gotta make sure that the carbon fiber design is going the same way or it will look odd just like real carbon fiber.). The rased Acura logo was very easy for anyone who hasnt done raised letters or logos all I did was glue a square of vinyl on the box glued the logo I printed on the computer cut it out with a razor knife and left what I wanted to show up and then wraped the box in the sude, works great when wraping anything in vinyl, with wood I just use 1/4-1/2" wood.

it took me about 2 1/2 days to do, I ran into alot of problems being it was my first one ill know a little more going into my next job. Thanks for the complements!!!!
