wow, very nice. Hod did you made the caps that fit over, for instance, the amps in the floor?

Did you mount the amps to a board below and then cap them with the vinyl covered board? If so, how did you attach the vinyl covered board to the one below?

yeah thats exactly what i did.. for the top board i just made it so that it fit perfectly in the trunk.. its not mounted but it doesnt move becuase of the tight fit..

Most highend custom shops mostly do woodwork. If you've watched Unique Whips you'll see there is very little FG involved in most of the cars. I used to work with people from 310 motoring and they were pros at wood work.

Anyhow that looks like some good work. I hope you got paid enough for that job.

Really nice install! I love how it just looks clean and basic. Nothing wrong with that at all. Fiberglass is nice, but if you know what your doing with wood then you can still make something happen. This is a perfect example of that. Keep up the great work nos96f22.

By the way, he must watch Unique Whips cuz that box kinda has a Reme style to it !!

Do whatever makes you happy in life without diminishing the happiness of others

that's awesome...i prefer to use wood myself, it's just simpler and less messy, but i haven't doe anything quite on that scale before.  It's actually very similar to a project i'm beginning i n my 94 legacy...2 alpine 12" type r's, and mrd-m605, and two mrp t220s...will post pics when i'm done.  Again, very clean nice work. props.

nice work colby! its amazing whos car you will see on this site. And you probably saw this car also if you were at Spring Break Nationals in Daytona this year. Very nice work though in a very small amount of time.

btw....its allen over at jax2. its so fun being at work today seeing as how i havent had a customer all morning and have yet to have a reason to get out of my seat. Hope your side of town is moving a little faster then mine. Watch out though mine will be done and Chris should have his REdone again very soon.

this is my buddies car we did. we have it finished now. back when this picture was taken on my camera phone, it wasn't finished. we were so poor we couldn't even afford to extend the power wires to the amp or even carpet the project. i'll have to post another picture of the finished project when i get around to it.


here's pictures of my own trunk done in MDF. i had big plans for it, untill the malibu got hail damaged.

I can see why all you guys like working with wood, hell I love it too, thats why I do what I do.  But don't you get bored with it some times?  So many geometrical shapes?  I mean, I use alot of wood in my fiberglass projects but theres something so much more satisfying when you finish a box that fits in a body cavity or is molded to the shape of the rear panel.
