Thanks!

The emblem is a Pontiac emblem printed off and cut out, then glued to a piece of acrylic. The picture was a little lacking in resolution, so if you get up real close you can see some pixels... Trent sent me a better picture, I think I'm going to have it redone.

Just an idea but maybe try to find a large Pontiac banner and then cut out and stitch in the emblem?

The way it is now, it goes through a special process to attach the paper image to the back of the acrylic. Your idea could work, but I want to light it up so I want to go the acrylic route.

I like it. I am normally not a fan of over the top audio installs, but you have a very practical approach, not to mention that you can still get to the spare tire. Keep up the good work, I look forward to following this one.

Thanks. I didn't want it to be over the top either and I'm really happy with how it'* turning out so far. Although that sub is a real testament to you get what you pay for. (1) 12" tucked behind the back seat and the mirror was about to jump off the window. The box is tuned for a very tight bass, but she still gets down and boogies.
