    Build Log: Myster the BMW/ED Disfunction

    Started the build process of teh wifes BMW and am proud to say I have ED!

    Completed the trunk template layout....


    CDT Crossover mount


    Power distro blocks mount


    Behind the false wall firing through the ski-pass at unsuspecting passengers will be......



    This evening I will finish up filling the gaps in the templates and recheck everything fitting.


    Couple questions I have:
    What thickness of MDF should I use for the side panels?
    Is 1" MDF too thick for a false floor?

    Re: Build Log: Myster the BMW/ED Disfunction

    looks great so far. 5/8" mdf for the floor would work, for the sides/false wall you can go small, like 1/4"

    ED? Erectile dysfunction? They have pills for that now...

    I have a Dr. recommend solution in the form of Elemental Designs!

    For the side panels what is the thinnest MDF I could use (1/4" or possibly thinner) while keeping room for mounting little plexi windows on the cutouts in the panels?

    I'd say go w/ 1/4", any thinner may result in bending/flexing.

    Put a mounting baffle on the backside of the panels, or use a router to make a groove for them to sit in.

    Re: Build Log: Myster the BMW/ED Disfunction

    Will hopefully get the templates traced out tonight!

    I have a question about the side panels I am building; I am going to "pressure" mount them in place between the floor and the top of the trunk and securing with velcro (just incase). What is the best type of bit to notch the cut with to fit the acrylic/plexi window?
