Looks good! I take it the e-brake is not going to be usable?

Nope i might end up just taking the pedal off. I still have to get some carpet to cover the enlcosure. Does anyone know where i can get some tan carpet that would match what i have in that pic?

I may have found a solution to all this kickpanel/floor space issue.

These and a good quality 6.5"ish driver in the door crossed at ~1k is on of the most transparent stages I've heard in a car.
Yes they need some EQ, but WOW.
Did I mention they're <.5" thick?

Here'* a neat product (semi-concerning this thread), and it was in part developed by my college here in Ames, IA! http://www.whispering-windows.com/

You attach two of these modules (about the size of a chew cannister) to far sides of glass and the glass becomes a speaker! Neat or what?! I have yet to find a practical stereo app for a car (other than a really sweet center channel for a 5.1 setup), but they're sorta neat to know about.

And expensive, too, lol. Almost $1800 for a single channel! They've got 'em installed at Jack Trice Stadium and are really something to hear in action. In fact, on large panes of glass, they're really not noticeable, as you can put the modules in the corners by the floor.

I just noticed they also make a similar device, but only requires one module to chagne any solid surface into a speaker. It sells for 300 bucks, and would be neat to mess with. You could mount it to the inside of the outter door panel and turn your whole door into a speaker, lol (and outside of your car...). Ah, fun stuff.
