Starting this up tomorrow. Here is a pic of my last pods which were a great success.

And one pod will go in each corner, holding two 6x9s in each one. Should be loud bro!

Didn't get around to molding the pods, but you can get an idea what they will look like. The angles and everything. And no, those aren't the speakers i am using lol. Probably going to buy some Alpine Type Rs.

Had to stiffen the rear carpet for support with resin.

For real man, You make fun of people buying stuff at wal-mart and you drive a mercury tracer :wow:. The pod's on the door do look really good though, nice work on those.

Yeah, it *****, but a body kit and some decent wheels and it would look pretty cool. I'd also much rather do these installs in a Tracer than a 15,000 Mitsubishi or something.

Please don't waste money on a body kit or wheels for that car, it will just attract attention to the car which will get your stuff jacked quicker, Just be happy with having a nice stereo and save the money to put towards a nicer car down the road (like an STI ,subaru fanboy here).

Alright, should have the fiberglassing done by tomorrow. So it should be molded, until then i have the foundation pic only. Just to show how it will be set up. Whoever sits back there is going to be freaking deaf.

And here is a pic of what it should look like. Except the middle part is going to have a slick looking valley/dip. Should look pretty awesome after i get that resin to set! The whole entire back piece is going to be fiberglassed.

Your first pods look really nice. Where in MO are you? I'm looking at getting some glassing done on my doors over the summer

Nio, just a 30,000 dollar garage and about a half a dozen cars. Not mine though.

That is where a piece of the seat goes. Yeah, looks ugly right now. This is going to take another 40 hours to finish.

I wanted it for looks just about as much as i wanted it to be louder i guess.


that looks loud...

Still haven't got it dialed in. The 6x9s have a lot more lows, and i have severe alt whine right now. That is all i know lol.

I am not a fan of 6x9s but to each his own. It looks a helluva lot better than the locals who just leave their 6x9s sitting on their back deck. I always hope that Darwin will take care of them in the event of an accident....
