Hey well my girlfriend recenelty aquired a sub from her sisters boyfriend who doesnt use it anymore so i am going to build her a little fiberglass box for it for her trunk. She drives a White 01 Jetta.

Here it is so far today, please be kind as i am kind of slow right now, i tore the MCL in my knee in an All-Star football game last night :(


Build Pics Started June 2nd 3:00pm: (sorry for the cell phone pics, my camera was charging, should have better pics later)

First the lower ring was cut along with the upper ring

Both rings glued together for a nice flush mount.

Rabbit'd the edges of the box.

UPDATE June 2nd 11:43pm:

Got some rage gold on there and sanded down the highs and filled the low's with some napa small repair putty (this stuff works wonders, no mixing required, just reacts with oxygen)

alright i receieved the custom vinyl today in the mail, here it is. My girl loves drawing, graffiti especially so i used one of her peices from her black book to put on here for her. She is going to love it. Now all im awaiting is her Rockford P3 10" and she will have a little bump to her ride, something that EVERYONE could use.
