    It was kind of sad seeing it go...




    Amp out


    Plenty of clearance..

    Box out..(you have no idea how hard that was doing that by myself with the sub in it)

    Hey look! forgot what was under there, lol


    Got a pic of the metal dust collecting on the all-thread because it's near the magnet inside the enclosure and magnetized the rod so the metal dust was looking all crazy around it

    Sub out

    I really liked this setup too :crap:...but on to bigger and better things

    Took out the tension arms on the trunk lid to make room for the port, makes it quite a bit heavier..

    Got the rear deck's cutting done..cut a bit more off the back area..






    The real way to hold your trunk open




    The amp will be in the back of the trunk for this setup so the fusing, wires, etc for the amp had to be moved a bit..



    ^Didnt really show much of what I did, but I just turned the ground run for the amp around on the busbar so it faced the direction the amp will be...and just took the power runs off until I get more done in the trunk
    Angled piece cut for the 'step' into the trunk..




    Piece made for the step-over to get the enclosure into the trunk..



    Mock-up..



    Mounted..


    More as it happens..

    Marked a board to go on the side..the line is to be cut to mate with the angled piece (you'll see)



    Screwed a board to it to guide the router to cut the line..


    Bam..


    Mock-up..you can see the part of the wood that kind of got chipped-off and there's a slight gap, no worries...its going to be sealed and fiberglassed over



    The other end of the angled piece will need holes drilled with the jig so I can attach the other side's side piece to it..

    The foam's gunna getcha!




    Toar out the excess foam-monster that was pouring out..



    45 degree insert for the corner..



    Sealed up..



    I decided the rear batteries didnt look mean enough ..so I added some ground runs on the busbar to make future battery/amp upgrades a breeze (so that I dont have to try and get runs on the negative busbar which will have the port hovering over it...it'd be kinda cramped)

    Got some beast terminals..



    Planning to put them on this piece of the enclosure for easy access..







    Mounted..




    Last piece cut for the main chamber



    Angled piece (well, this would be the last piece..lol)





    Overview



    As you can see, though , there is a slight flaw that will have to be worked out...

    In making the two sections (port and main chamber) meet in the middle...they werent exactly the same and were slightly different angles. So you can see in that last pic the piece running across is about 3/4" higher on the driver's side...that will need to be cut and sanded down to make flush, not a huge issue but I wasn't the happiest about it when I saw it coming together.

    Got a bit done earlier..



    Laying in some mat







    A bit of sanding..



    After some half-a$$ sanding I layed on another thick layer of resin to smooth things out..




    Layed more resin and mat on the corner areas..




    Pretty smoothed out on the 'mouth' area..

    The passenger side of the port...straight into the cabin

    Got a piece cut and 'instant bond'ed it into place..

    Foamed around it to seal 'er up..

    Same thing on the driver's side


    The foam became a bit unruley (sp?) so I had to push/wipe it into position with a grocery bag over my hand, worked pretty well.
