Awesome custom trunk man....

I never even thought of doing such a mod.... your trunk looks too pretty to put anything in it.

Thanks for all the compliments everyone. I knew you guys would like it. I love it. This pictures look alright, they don't do any justice when you stand and look for yourself, try to get some better pictures in 2-3weeks.

The mirror on the decklid was molded to fit with bondo, than wraped in black carpet and the mirror is velcro'ed on. This didn't last long, ended up using some super glue to make sure is stays on. (uploaded picture of this tonight)

Slowly uploading more pictures each night of the install, need to get a good photo book for judges at stereo comps. I entered in SQ comp. the first day it was done, Could of came home with a trophy if I would of had pictures of all wiring and connections, and some tuning time, brought it in with the EQ set flat. Imaging will be better once I set the time alignment with Alpine'* wonderful I-personalize feature. On the meter I hit 138.1 dB. Not to bad for "tight" new speakers with all of 3 hours of break in time. JL recommends 40 hours for W7'* to fully break in. Next show is a SLAP show at Tweeter Schamburg,IL, shouldn't have any problems breaking into the +140 dB'*. I really don't care though, I just always wanted a nice equipment with an install to match.
Dreams to come true.
