I was going to say that, but he insists upon foam. LOL

I prefer 1/4" MDF as it's easy to cut and shape. Might try 1/2" next time though or some 3/4" Trupan since it's much easier to work with.

Yea 1/4" would be easier. However, once I was finished, I kind of liked the profile the 1/2" gave. Wasnt too difficult to carpet around either.

im not canceling wood out i just want it to stick out like a inch or something, well like 1/2" cause i wanna "lift it" with spacers so i can put some lights behind it so the glow comes from behind the symbol. seemed like a nice little touch to add to the center of this after i put another layer of "carpet" on it:

yeah i thought about 2 10" screens but none of the dvd/mp3/cd-r players with out a flip up screen put out more than 2volts preamp and i like having 4-6 preamp volts so i don waste money on a line driver. then i though about puttin screens there and gettin one of those portable players that hook to tha cig lighter and hook it to the screens and plug to a seperate amp and speaker setup all in the cargo area for like tail gate partys like sittin in the back yard bond fire gettin crunk and havin music vids play to watch and jam too. i was thinkin about tryin to make a fold out table hooked through all my equipment for my dj tables to sit on and use the vehicles system as the sound for my tables but that idead failed cause the coffin is 68" long and wont fit anywhere in the jeep for transport to parties and sh*T.
