      Here are some shots with the lines all roughed in to the tanks. Just need to polish everything up a bit and it should be ready to go into the car very shortly.

      Alright, lot's of polishing this weekend and getting the new paint scheme worked out for the sub enclosure. There's easily 30 hours of polishing on just these lines alone and I've lost feeling in both shoulders.



      The first time the box was in the car it was the same color as the body, Deep Black Pearl. This time we're going to try and pull the paint theme from the tanks over to the box for more continuity throughout the car. We also have some accent pieces in the cabin of the car that help bring the paint them forward as well - those pics will come a bit later. Here's the very beginning of mapping out the box;

      The latest update is that we had to order a few more lengths of stainless pipe and a couple of billet manifolds which, of course, are all on back order till next week.

      The sub enclosure is being airbrushed right now and should be wrapped up in a few days. Once that's done all the electrical components, VU4 manifold, pressure senders, and water traps need to be mounted and installed on the back of the box before putting it back in the car.

      All this and about 138 other things still need to be done but the level of detail and workmanship being done on the car take time so, it is what is.

      I couldn't be happier with everything - working with Andrew @ ORT almost on a daily basis and the guys @ Phantom Autowerke for all their long hours and hard work. A big to both of them.

      craftmanship looks top notch, look forward to seeing the end product.

      Thanks for the good words, sir.

      Been a pleasure working with you and the guys at Phantom. Definitely taking a road trip to Phantom to see it in person when it's all finished!

      While we're waiting for the last few pieces to come in from Grainger, here's a couple random shots of the box getting painted.






      Still needs a few more designs and a couple coats of clear but I really like the way direction and how its pulling the tank's design scheme throughout the car.

      quality airbrushing man. And what RMS are you throwing at those JL's? What kind of beastly alternator are you running to support that madness?

      Glad you like it - the rest of the box should be finished by tomorrow so I'll post an update then.

      The factory alternator is surprisingly solid and should be able to accommodate the draw of the amps just fine.

      Those amps are super efficient and draw much less power than most. I sold and installed at a JL dealer for 7 years and run the HD series stuff in my car with W3 subs and C5 highs so i definitely approve of this setup!!!!!

      Love the car!!!!!!

      Witness some airbrushing and bag tweaking last night - seeing the project from start to finish is quite the experience.

      Quality work is an understatement when describing the work going into this build. Will def turn some heads next season to say the least
