yea if you find a place to find a 25" long amp cleanly, let me know. so far all i got is under the seats...(may still be too long tho) im hoping with the original tool box in, that amp will clear the seats

under the seats wont work. atleast it wouldnt for mine, i have that cargo holder and if you take that out it just looks like crap. i figure ill just mount it to the side of my box making a housing for it so it all sits flush.

and my gf's mom has the same car as your dd. but yours look a hell of alot nicer

paint/body shop :D

the guy thats painting the cuda (and my car when hes done) was working on a cavalier, when he decided to go take a lunch break. 3 minutes later, a 90 year old man pulls back to the garage (which nobody ever does) and the garage door was open a little

anyways, he blasts through the garage door, hits an audi, the audi slides into this truck, then the truck the clipped the front end of the cavalier. crazy thing is, he was working on the front end of the cavi, and was like kneeling, so he probably coulda got paralyzed or killed. it was one of those freak accidents. the guy gets outta his car and goes"im here for an estimate!" he had no clue what had just happened or anything. license revoked and all. just a story thought u might enjoy
