    Well it turns out i had some clearance issues with the dash, so i had to cut the four posts holding the ring up, by 2 inches. So, all i got done was stretch the fleece and put my first layer of resin on. Sorry for the crappy cell pics, mom stole the camera.

    I'll *try* to get better pics, along with it in the truck and the mounting bracket.

    Would there be any interest in these boxes for you 95-2000 taco owners with the bench seat?

    looks great! Good job!! The only thing that worries me is that it's in plain wide open view... (could attract thieves)

    I was suprised it sounds as great as it does!
    I did all the bondo work (that i thought was needed) and put the sub in and hooked it up. It didnt sound good at all, there was air coming out from between the sub and box. Well, i let my autobody friend do a little work while i was cutting out rust and replacing it with clean sheet metal on his 88 camaro. Damn did he make it look good. He also leveled out the mounting surface for the sub. I let him prime it, but I did the base coat with some Duplicolor Gloss Black acrylic enamel and clear enamel. I siliconed the sub to the box and it sealed very nicely. No leaks and sounds amazing!
