    Re: Corvette C5 box

    i dunno if i like that.

    id rather of painted the bottom of the box with some paint to match the car, and left the top clear.

    but your boxes are sweet, but IMO not worth that kinda cash.

    well we are also going to put some lights inside of the box taped into the lights when the door or hatch opens....

    usually the box is just clear we just decided to put mylar in the bottom of it.

    Re: Corvette C5 box

    yea i know, but youd be able to see the floor of the car thru the clear, so why not paint the bottom\sides of the box the color of the paint, and get a perfect reflective paintjob (looks like the car is silver) so paint the bottom\side a nice silver gloss (one or two easy coats, no sanding, just clean the surface good with some windex... and it would look better IMO, then drill some 5mm holes in the edges of the box near the carpet and put some LEDs in there tapped to the hatch door. maybe 5 or 10 white LEDs would look incredible.

    just my 2 cents.

    that sounds like a good idea...

    we wanted it to be flashy when he shows it off to people
