So I got some pics uploaded tonight so I figured I would post them up and get some feedback from you guys. If someone could tell me how to post them where they show that would be great but here is the link to my photobucket album.

The box is gonna end up being just over 2 cubes so I just barely made the minimum size Kicker reccomends. I still have to carpet it so ill post up the pics of it once it is done.

EDIT: That looks great! My friend tried to do something similar in his regular cab F-150 but it didn't look near this professional, good work.

What do you guys think about the inset part where the amp will be. With it right up against the seat do you think I will have any problems with the amp overheating??

Nah those amps dont really get extremely hot.. maybe cut a little vent out on the sides and really as long as the top isn't covered you will be good.

err cut a smaller rectangle out in the center of the wood.it just needs wood to mount on.

No its not a spray booth. My dads job is working on classic cars (LUCKY) and the building that you can see in the back of the last pic is where he works. But it is also our house. Me and him built that cage that the box was being built in to contain all of the dust and dirt from sanding and grinding so it doesnt get all over in the house part of the building since it is not partitioned off. Some of the kids at school made fun of it and made it sound like I "lived in a barn" but once they saw the inside of it they pretty much shut up.

We do have a paint booth too though. Its a full downdraft from Global Finishing. Its sweet it has like the bake cycle thing where it bakes the paint.

Thanks for the compliments on the box.

Thanks, ive always like the 2wd shortbed regular cab ford trucks in that body style and just ended up getting lucky enough to have one for my first vehicle. Thanks for the compliment.

By the way, parking your truck in the dining room is neatO

Yea its pretty cool really. I just wish there was enough room so I could park MY truck inside.

looks good.

with the head unit did you have to have a harness for it? or did it just secure in there without any modification?

SEVEN_ELEVEN
11-02-2006, 07:43 PM
I still havent ordered a install kit to secure it but it will sit in there and not move around too much. I think I could get by without a kit but I would rather have it secure.

Thanks for the compliments.

Looks real good! If I wasn't so lazy I'd get around to building somthing like that. I can't seem to even get 2^ft3 if my truck with the style of box I'm using...

I got 1.8 the other day but can't seem to get any more. Maybe I'll try a box like that, see what I can get....

Yeah it was definitely alot of work. It took me from the time I got home from school on friday till like 12:30 on sunday night to get everything cut and glued together. I dont have a table saw so using the skill saw prolly slowed me down some. I was thinking about simplifying the design to make it easier but im definitely glad I spent the extra time to go ahead and do it right. Hopefully by the end of this weekend ill have everything done and installed. Ill post some pics up when its all done.

wow seven eleven thats some awesome looking work you're doing there!

uh....this might seem weird--can I see some pics of the inside of your house?





lol---I'm looking into buying/building my own place in the next year or so and the basic idea of a big shop with a house built into it is a dream of mine...(loves his toys)
