thanks for the props well i got sun burned pretty good lol and decided to hit the store. picked up a sheet of 3/4 plywood for the trunk. figured it will work just fine for the floor and the rest of what im doing. figured id have to make a few pieces and assemble it while its in the trunk.

its all just cut and since my girl has the car with her at work for the day ill be starting to mock it up in my basement. once again my goal is to fit the sub and everything, it needs to be clean(as clean as i can get ha) ill need to be able to pull the spare without takin the sub out(working on figuring out some 60/40 fold down rear seat back) and fit my lil girls stroller whilethe sub is pretty much sealed off form the trunk. i know it wont be completly sealed but i got a few ideas. ill be posting more soon. its been warm and DRY enough out to do some stuff lol. one thing i still need to decide on is how to atatch this frame/floor to the car itself. it dosnt need to be really on there just dont want anythin to be sliding around.

i also cut out some more wood to start filling in the rest, and the one closest to the inside of the car(with the cutout for the hump) will be attatched to 1 more that will go across in front of the sub. it will kinda lock in, in a way ha

thats just some greatstuff in that one corner. the gas filler is right there so had to fill with something and wood wasnt gonna cut it. dont really know what im doing but figuring it all out as i go. learning as i go. got 1 ring cut out of 1/2" partical board since its what i had for thinner stuff. no need to use 3/4 MDF, would be too bulky IMO, and DAMN it was pain to get the old **** off my pilar...yeah i know i could of gone to a salvage yard n grabbed another pair for 15 or so, but these are paid for and i have more time then money

i got 2 layers on the inside of one and workin on the other one. word of the day is sanding lol. hopefully ill be able to get some body filler on them today. i think they are turning out way better then the first ones. new saw and new blades FTMFW for sure lol. had bent lade for the last rings i had to cut. nylons work pretty good also, down side is they dont take **** for resin, but they do hold shape pretty damn good and no creases or overlap = less sanding lol.
