    I'm using the back of the 60/40 rear seat for the amp location. I couldn't think of any reason not to. Has this idea failed anyone?

    I tried to remove one of the metal hangers located on the back body wall. I was successful but I took two pieces of the rear sheet metal along with it. Can I use JB Weld to seal up these two holes?

    Just make sure you leave enough slack in the wires so that you can fold the seats. I wouldn't worry too much about the holes in the metal. JB weld would be great but total overkill. Most would probably just throw some duct tape over it and call it good.
