My Lancer in the background, needs battery's and attention to get system up and running. Soon i hope. Get some bass for the wife going should charge me up to get my system going.

IMG_2218_zpsmnhnyr9u.jpg

Her box next to mine with 2 HDS310's off the T1500 and those battery's. These ones are good but the ones under the hood are shot.

IMG_2219_zpsjjr9efg7.jpg

Hopefully i dont get into to much trouble with her... I told her the box would be smaller than mine. Which it is but not by much. LOL She has a big trunk and wont miss the space IMO.

Well now to break out the filler for all the holes. Get everything smooth so i can take a 3/8th bit over all the edges. Primer and paint. Was thinking White since all the RF equipment is black. Goes with the storm trooper theme.

I will see what she thinks.... And then do what i like! lol

Nice!

Love the mapped out lines on the wood before you cut it.

I do the same, always gotta check things out before cutting. :good:

Thank you sir, ya its my OCD and how i do things. I will spend hours filling and sanding the whole box to prep for primer and paint. Area's that no one will ever see but i will do it anyway. Just how i am.

Thanks for commenting, i to have followed your build and you have a ton of time in your system as well.

I have OCD as well. My iPad mount has seen dozens of coats of filler and many hours of sanding and painting, trying to match the interior color exactly....which it doesn't and it drives me crazy.......

I'm probly the only one to notice but that's all that matters.

Yeah I've been slacking on my build but hopefully soon. Too many home projects.

Got some big ideas brewing though.

I understand where your coming from. My Lancer build needs 1 door panel finish, kick panels for 8" midbass started and battery's. Been slacking and working on other projects as well. Marriage, buying a house, working alot again..you know life. lol

IMG_1750_zpse78f9c1d.jpg

I bought new kick panels to build for the 8" mids to keep the 6" as well. Just need to glass them up.
