updated pics

OK finaly getting a chance to get back on this after going to ATL meet last week (great turn out!). From previous box looks like box is almost done but there is still work to be done. Looked what arrived in the mail finally



This was my 1st time drilling plexi this thick. All you need is a glass bit, some water and a some patience. I used a baby bottle since it was laying around but a spray bottle will do as well. Mark hole on plexi, add water, drill a small bit, add more water, drill a small bit, etc. It took me about 5 to 6 passes to get one hole completely done.









Since I'm not able to glue the top down because of the way I desgined the box I will added some door/window sealer foam to make sure it is sealed (If I glue the top down and wanted/needed to get the subs I out, I wouldn't be able to without tearing up the box!). OK on to the pics:

Added foam gasket to top of the box and rear as well where plexi will connect to the box.





Next I added the red cold cathodes lights to top of box with some metal brackets I fab up:







Next I drilled holes for lights to go thru & wire subs in parrallel









I just got logo for the plexi so today or tomorrow hopefully I will get it on and plexi added to box to complete it for now before installing. Took me awhile because I don't want the wire to be visible when its installed in the car. I personally think it should be clean since it will be seen so Im going wrap speaker wire around the subs and go straight up so they arent easily seen once trim panel is added. Well more updates soon

Looks like its coming along!

Drilling plexi is indeed a PIA...I've predrilled entire sheets and had the thing crack on the next to last hole because I was in too much of a hurry. Good job taking your time.

Yes it was a PIA. Its nice to know you took your time but it was even better once I started removing the film to 100% know that I didn't crack it!

It is massive but it will fit. Now the coupe trunks which I hate are so tiny so it did have to notch a 1/2 inch of of the corners of the rear deck so I could get 12in of height all the way across (for those who dont have a coupe, it tapers down at a slope in the corners. I will sand, prime & paint those and then fg those back so the rear deck speakers are still sealed, those pics will come later on after I finally get this box done. Honestly, I'm tired of working on it but I'm sure I'll be happy in the end.

I drilled my 1" piece w/out any issue. I used a titanium bit, started small, and then worked my way up. Came through like a champ
