So after about a month of having the bare box in the trunk I decided it was time for me to get my **** together and clean up my install.

This includes but is not limited to the box carpeting. I know it's fugly on the sides, the carpet was not long enough so I had to piece it but it's OK for me.

Oh, and 3M Super 77 FTMFW :)

Thanks for the positive remarks guys I appreciate it.

I didn't have enough for the bottom, but it's neatly tucked under about 1" all around and securely stapled/glued, so ah well :)

Also, the port I had tried to spray paint green but I neglected to seal the MDF, so the primer/paint didn't adhere too well (hence the patchiness towards the front of the port)... anybody have an idea of how to possibly cover this 1.5" of eyesore up? :p:
