Is that a regular acid battery? If so, be sure to vent it so the poisonous gasses dont kill you. Looks great so far!

Ya this install is looking slick. Wondered what you were going to throw in the spare tire well but I see the box is just covering it up. Was hoping to see some goodies in there. Keep it up!!!

There is no spare tire in the car. The car is only driven to shows or for fun. I only put about 500miles on it a year.

I see that you are using the space for the sub enclosure then. Nice touch. Unsure of the sound it will make but good idea on the space instead of wasting it. Nice job. Will post my amp rack soon as its done using that space.

Have some new pictures. I've been working 12 hour days and then trying to find time to work on the car.  For the last two days I have just been sanding so it is getting really old really fast.

posted_image

I cut it out in three pieces and started to sand. The fill the gap I used 1/ 4inch MDF and stapled it on the make the fiberglass and MDF level.

On the left side the pannel is sanded and bondoed. It still needs sanding but its coming along. On the right the pannel before bondo.

Doing a test fit before I start sanding the bondo down.

Have some new pictures up. I'm almost finished with the trim panels. I still have some more sanding and fitting to do so the three pannels line up. But overall I feel that its comming  along.

The right trim panel is finished. All I have to do is some gap fitment and cover it.

the left trim panel is almost done. I still some sanding but should be done tomarrow.

Looks very nice so far, but why are you going with 5500 8"? stay with the 5500 12" or one 7500 12".

I went with the 8's because I,m not looking for a loud system. I building this system to look sweet at shows and to sound good. Plus I don't see to many 8 installs at shows. So I'm trying to be different too.

Have some new pictures up. I'm trying to get this install done ASAP but between school, work, and the new addition going on my house it just really hard to work. My garage is filled with windows and wood for the addition so I can't work in there so I'm just doing some small work right now. But when the addition is done I will have a new 3 car garage with shop along with my other 3 car garage. So I will have lots of shop space to do work.

Here are the new pics.

This is the back kick pannel.

posted_image

I stapled a strip of 1/4inch MDF to fill the gap.

posted_image

Then filled to gap.

posted_image

These are a must.

This is going to be my new shop.
