Pull the back seat out completely, remove the plastic tabs on the lower part of the rear deck... Carefully remove the C pillar trim panels and then the rear deck will lift out..

I have mine off on my 92, making a enclosure like you are. I did not see any room for more then 2 10 and that was pushing I am doing one 8, a bigger 8 but if you get them to fit, great on ya, thrid brake light and rear brace going from rear strut towers is right ion the way.. But with time one could make it fit.

i am putting the 8'' beymas in the exsisting holes where the stock 6x9'* were and then i have made templates of my 10'' evm'* then put them on my back deck in between the 2 8'' so the 10''evm'* are in the middle then i traced the template on the rear deck metal frame with a blue sharpie and then cut it out with my new dremel xpr .. cut like a hot knife thru cold butter...

and as for the third brake light im not sure if im keeping it or eliminating it.. if i keep it i might just go to the yard and find a nice one that fits or i will just make a custom one..

was thinking of making one in the shape of a pontiac symbol..


i can give you pics of my work and progress if interested...
