In the years i was competing i was always working on the car for making it better and better.Evry minit I got I spend on the car..

there was always the presure of performing beter . When i began on this project i make the decision ,to make something beautiful en having fun and now presure.I NOT going to compete whit this car..Not whit the speakers on the A pillar, and not with the plexy sub box.

Writing this is not so simple for me.I understand, and speak english but that's everything.i can't write englisch i am translating my words with the help off a translation program.It's not so simple for me to tell everthing in detail. But i hope you will understand.I realy hope to get some comments good or bad.everybody had his opinion about car stereo.

There is still some adaption work.

This will be the Sub-box.

The piece I wanted to cover in Carbonkevlar, I painted black, to be sure the layer underneath won't show.

Posted Image

Posted Image

milled some rings to put the woofers in.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Here a picture of the bottomside, where he made wholes , to let the sound flow outside.

The wholes you can see in the alu, don't worry about it.

It'll be covered in CF..

The next thing on the list is something very difficult.

The connections of the speakers he'll make in copper, of 5mm thickness.

Cables are so boring

some cupper

5mm thickness, more didn't fit in the speaker.

Posted Image

Copper connections are ready.

made a model first, took a mold, and fold it the same way.

Sawed it all, rubbed it, and polished.

Posted Image

Posted Image

On this picture you can see he putt a whole in the bottomside to connect the cables.

Posted Image

The cupper wil go to the middle, so I made a alu plated where the bars fitt right on in.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

alu triangles bade in a little CF.

started to make the bottomplate. She will be around the BOX and rest on the chassis of the car. did it as good as possible. Leveled it with waterleveler.

Once this plate is right, you take the messurements always from this plate, so it has to be 100% correcT.

milled to upperboard

Started to make a hinge. He went to see the store, but they didn't had what he needed. So got some aluminium ..

Posted Image

Posted Image

The meaning of this hinge, is that the amplifier can go up. So the crowbar needed to be something nice.

Cause the crowbar wil be very shot/small, he made it strong enought. (15mm thickness)

Posted Image

Posted Image

there are nicer things in life to do, but when it's finished, it was worth the work in his eyes.

Posted Image

Against the alu tube, he's going to weld a piece to, where he can hook the amp on.

Then I started to tair apart the Alpine CD player.

Did away the front, and made some trolleys to fasten the thing.

Posted Image

here you can see the front of the CD player

Posted Image

Posted Image

The ALU- box where the amp should come is foreseen with the hinge.

This one, he screwed on. I going to try it'l go this way.

If not, he can always weld it on...

I doesn't want to try it now, cause he's afraid it all bend of the heat.

But it's a final option...

Posted Image

Posted Image

Will look like......

Posted Image

put some movement in the amp.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Made a fiberglass plate.

Here will be some change soon, but you have to start somewhere.

Posted Image

found some vents that you can take from each other.

These are from aluminium, but the frame they're in, goes in the bin.

There will be an -minor modded- version of it

Posted Image

2 pieces to place in the vents, so the cooling on the amp will be better.

The pieces are finally done.

all that work, pppfffffff, but it was worth it .

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Here's a picture from the front. You can see a V where everythings slides into.

Posted Image

Then he fiberglassed a little alu piece that is fastened bigtime.

Posted Image

Posted Image

In the whole those things are layed into, fiberglassed a firm alu bridge, and there the backside slides into.

These things have to come out really fast, cause his GPS and CD loader is behind it.
