    We're still working on the trunk, need to get a carpet kit for it and finish cleaning up some random wires.

    Those MG's are hard to do much with, I think you did a great job with the rear fill/sub setup.

    Thanks, we're going to try to find some stickers that look like the ones on the radio delete panel, and put them on the back of the faceplate so it looks like it has no radio. Just for a little extra look.

    Looks pretty good. Like another guy said, hard to do much to those little cars. There is a guy here at work that drives his all the time. Pretty fun little cars.

    How does the IB sound in that car?

    That sub IB off that amount of power sounds amazing. Very clean, has plenty of punch, and gets really low. I was pleasantly surprised with how good this little sub sounds.
