    Box looks great but my question is after all that work why didn't you router the outside edge of the port to reduce port noise and increase spl?

    Looks great! Even if you don't have a router you can take a rasp and files to the pvc to round it over and get rid of that hard lip. Home Depot even sells a rotary rasp that attaches to your drill and it makes things a lot easier, you just have to be careful not to take big gouges out as that will happen very easily with a high speed drill.

    Rotary rasps are like $5 too, they are a very worthwhile and inexpensive addition to anyone's toolbox.

    now since you helped with the tip do you mind showing what is meant with the whole getting rid of the hard lip, like what it looks like?

    Re: box build for my s10

    I used the rotary rasp to remove the majority of the material, then used a file and some sand paper to smooth it out. I still need to smooth it out more

    I second what rabbit said! Does look good though. I would like to see what it looks like in there. Mine just looks like a giant box that takes up the whole ext cab.
