ok this what i had in mind. bear with me, ms paint > me. but was going to fiberglass the sub and both amps behind the seats. the amps will be slightly curved and at an angle (cant really tell from the pic) and the sub will be inverted to conserve air space. i need suggestions on the alpine symbol in the floor. what i had in mind was taking out the spare tire cover and making an identical cover out of mdf to cover the tire, but i wanted to cut out the alpine logo and place an led underneath to make it glow at night. i think the idea is cool, but i just need suggestions on the best way to cut the logo out.

so you're suggesting i use a saw to cut out those tiny lines of the alpine logo? i dont think that will be accurate at all. i was wondering if maybe putting a big on my drill and using it to cut it out. anyone ever do that before?

yeah i thought about that, but i dont want to have glass looking in at my tire lol. plus i wanted to recarpet the board to make it look as oem as possible. im not sure my jig saw skills are good enough to get it super clean enough.

i mean i guess i could make an insert for the plexi, but i've heard its really expensive. how much does it run for a 24 x 12 piece?

i think this idea will be ****, i just gotta figure out how to get this logo right. itll be a while before i start it, but im making sure i have it all planned out before hand. but no one thinks the idea about the drill would work lol.
