      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

      Here are a couple of pics showing the test fit of the tanks into the seat back.



      We're pretty much at the tail end of the initial phase of the build - fabricating, sanding, polishing, painting, cutting, drilling - and should be ready to start installing everything and putting the car back together.

      Hi all -
      A lot of work has been going on while we've been waiting for a few random parts to come in, mostly hardline fittings.

      Got the tanks mounted inside the car in the proper location. Still need to cut and re-wrap the seat bottoms.


      Also - and this is the biggie - the speaker enclosure is DONE. Finished spraying the last coat of clear late last night and giving it a few days to dry before sanding and polishing it. After that, it'll go in the car and all the components will get installed.
      Here's how it all started

      and then

      and then

      and then

      and then

      and then

      and finally!





      This was a big hurdle to get past and I can kinda see the finish line although there's lots more work to be done. Hopefully I'll have some more updates of the next few days and do a better job of keeping this thread up-to-date.

      -Adam

      Here's some more of the audio install happenings.

      Box all cleared, wet-sanded, and polished.


      Even the back of the box that will never be seen got work done.


      Box in it's new home.





      Also decided to respray the outer ring of the subs to match the paint scheme of the tanks and box.


      More to come soon.

      Hey guys,
      The shop has been in the process of moving so the build got slowed down a bit - should pick up very shortly though. Here's a few more recent pics and some wheel fitment testing.
