    S'all good. For $500 I'd say it's **** good. When I'm done I'll have more money in Equipment than the car itself.

    'Tis why its a beater and not my DD. Just about any car that's 5+years old has rust on it, at least in Michigan.
    Maybe my 8's will rattle some rust off?

    Re: Da' Budget Beater Build ('96 Buick Regal)


    Sitting under my bed waiting for my 4-GA wire to arrive..


    These are sitting in the computer room.. making my old t1 look bad.

    Tried building a box, home depot fuc*ed my cuts up twice.. needless to say I got my $ back.
    Wasted a quite a bit of time.... Most likely having box built by Star Mountain, heard many good things about Brian's boxes.

    I'm sure he'll appreciate it. He showed me the sale link on Newegg. They're practically giving those things away.
