    To Build or Not to build?

    Does anyone know the what it would cost to have a custom sub box built in the rear quarter panel would cost me to have done by a shop?
    I'm trying to decide if it would be sot effective to pay a shop to do it right.

    Thanks
    Brian

    I'd do it yourself personally. If you get a shop to do it, you'll have to pay both for the materials, and their very high hourly wages, as where if you do it yourself, it's just the cost of materials. Just my $0.02

    Do it yourself...

    You gain all of the knowledge, experience, and happiness/frustration that comes with it!

    Re: To Build or Not to build?

    i was quoted 500 from a ripoff shop who thinks they are hot ****, 230 from another shop, and 80 from another. and the $80 probably had more skills than any of them. it wasn't cheap in anyway, they guy just isnt into ripping people, so i guess it depends, best way to find out is to talk to some shops

    I don't have the time or shop to do it. I have the tools but I would have to do it in my apartment. Is there anyone on here from the DC area. The car is a Infiniti G35.
