entire trunk, trunk lid...both were no problem. layered it multiple times. the hard part was the rear deck. i had to lay in my trunk, *** where the spare tire is on back on the hump of the gas tank deadening the rear deck....oh dear lord, i'm happy that is finished, holy **** was that an experience

here is one. i had another order of second skin for the doors and trunk ended up having a little extra that got thrown on. this is an older picture.

it really does no justice for how much/heavy it is. i'll take better pictures tomorrow. when i pop the trunk, there is no vertical movement it just unlocks. if you try and close it traditionally it sounds awful because it SLAMS SO HARD, i can't close it that way anymore or i know something will eventually break. the only times it slams is if the wind blows it over.

lmao another awful experience. i was adjusting amplifier settings and i had both hands in the trunk and no hands holding the trunk lid up. little gust of wind and bam. right on my mid back. god that hurt like hell!!!!! :crap:

haha yeah you can call me a car audio junkie, lol. it's good i'll now have someone to talk to, lmao. yes i did like it, i made a real good group of friends. yes i brought my car***, how could a car audio junkie live without his system and a good set of components to listen to music? :D my nasty jvc bookshelf can only do so much.
(made a custom box with 2 dayton 10" quatros, it was like 2.7^3 @ 37 hz, thing was HUGE and pounded. going to bring down my eD OV i got on the buyout this year, a little smaller to save space)


*** freshman parking is down past the field house at this huge stone parking lot called west campus lot. it's a 30minute fairly good paced walk from my dorm and there was a shuttle that took you down there. (it makes tons of stops and waits at everystop, i never used it unless there was ****** weather)

are they doing the same thing with cars this year?

i gave the info on the first post, and on the first page were some pics. as for future upgrades, maybe a second battery and some wheels/tires.

Not bringing my car down right away but when i come home for christmas i might. It just seems like a hassle but shouldnt be that bad. There is the new upperclass dorms that they are offering to freshman. I'm trying to get that but after my first year i'm getting a house and going that way. Its awsome to find people like this haha i was excited to see gmu when you said that. I will def talk to you about stuff.

i brought mine and def recommend it. but that's just me, i sometimes like to go out and go for a drive and what not. (last year gas was cheap, joyrides are rare now:furious:)

upperclass dorms, chesapeak? i'm 99% sure they aren't allowing freshman in there. do you know the name?

and yeah pretty neat, just joined a couple hours ago and already made friends here. i might be spending more of my time on ca.com instead of caraudioforum.com now.
