The ONLY way i can get to my gains and other dials on the amps is to pull them out, adjust them, and put them back. For this, i built some wooden guides for the amp rack "boxes" to slide in and off of. It will help keep them from moving unless i want them to.

I love this new drill press, even for the simplest things :D

The box on the inside has bedliner on it. So i am bedlining the amp racks but the actual fiberlgass trim piece will match the MOMO seats. So it will all flow with the interior.

4 Rockford Fosgate T2500.1bd Cp amps - 13,686w RMS of powahhh!!

The mirror's on the side still have the plastic on them, i will remove when i get closer to being finished, so i don't ruin them.

IMG_5068_zps7080ecc5.jpg

Bedliner came out clean!

IMG_5076_zpsafb7ac84.jpg

So UGLY!

IMG_5077_zpsc41888f3.jpg

AHHHHH MUCH BETTER! Remember, the grey primered trim-piece will be the same material as the MOMO seats soon!

Ok, the wires are ran, the amp racks are actually INSIDE the trunk now. I just need to wrap the trim piece in black material (to match the Momo seats) and the trunk will be finished. Actually, i got a Rockford logo to put on the plexi and some LED's to light up the display a little bit planned. I also have to do something about cooling. Just a few large fans probably to move air around a little bit. Soon, i get the door panels wrapped to match the seats as well. Then i can think about body work and finally paint.

here is how she looks today. Oh and DAMN it sounds great!! I was flexing a buddy of mines windshield almost like he had his beat on while he was parked in front of it :D Video on that tomorrow probably :D

Finally got around to wrapping the trim piece. As you know, i wanted it to match the black MOMO seats which will also match the door panels too. I bought a new rubber gasket seal for the trunk lid, it will be here tuesday....so if its a little knarly around the edges, it's because it isn't on there now. It actually holds the trim panel in place so it should look and work very well when i get that on for good.

Ok i made the RF Diamond a little too low..had a miscalculation or something LOL - but lucky for me, i made 2 and i can make them all day until i get it right. I didn't feel like redoing it tonight so i just lit it up and took some pics. For the record though it will be moved up about 1".
