Default Custom amp mount finished...PICS (56k, sorry)

So I figured I'd might as well start my amp mount before I get my new sub....so here are some pics. BTW, I wasnt happy with the base of the mount (not in any pics) so I'm replacing that and a few other pieces that I didn't measure out well enough. Carpet is going to be covering up the bad edges.

Somehow a paintball managed to get its way under the carpet and I popped it while putting the sub back in.

All I had to use was a jig saw =/. My dad is extremely tool defunct. I did use a straight edge to draw all of the lines but the damn jigsaw cuts the 3/4" side at a slight angle.

Yeah...On my last few cuts I broke a blade on the jigsaw and couldn't get it out, so I rummaged around and found the circular saw hidden in a bag in a corner. Only used it for 2 cuts, but they were definately a lot cleanre than the jigsaw ones.
