  1. I just bought a 2015 Scion tc and have a system planned out. but i'm wanting to brace the inner panels of the car before i start building. It's not going to be walled off(yet) and so alot of the car will be vulnerable to flex. I'm wanting to use angle iron cut to the length of the panels and weld it on. My question though is how thick does the metal need to be to be effective. and will welding on the inside of the car make the paint bubble or burn on the outside? If so is there any way to prevent it? I'm putting a Sundown zv5-15 on a ampere audio 3800.1 in a 6cu ft box tuned to 32hz. I put a psi platform 1 15 in to test it (hooked up to a house amp) and it was already flexing :-( There are some areas of the car that i will just use sound deadner like rear hatch area or headliner. but i'd really like to brace as much of the car as i can. If i cannot weld the metal, are there any metal to metal adheasives strong enough to make a secure bond? or would using wood and a strong adheasive work? Any input would be great
