U know what would of looked nice? If you went with black carpet with a green port like the color of the stickers. And what happened to the rubber outing that goes on the sub? imo it would of looked much better.

Thanks for the idea Julian. I wish I would have heard or thought of that before I had my box built. As far as the rubber, I have it, just forgot to put them back on for the pics.

Hey all, so who's ready for some updates? First nice day with no kids and no baseball! I promise this will be done in June! Okay, so I got my new power wire, RCAs, speaker wire and in-line fuse today which all is for the 4 channel amp. Got the power wires through to the battery with high temp split loom tubing. Started to run some of the speaker wire, mounted the in-line fuses, and got all of the new RCAs hooked up to HU and partially ran through the car. Pics below and more to come.

Okay updates. I haven't been able to do much. Baseball, baseball and more baseball. I have hooked up the 4 channel amp, ran all of the speaker wires and the RCAs. I also discovered that I needed to add a fourth toggle switch. Why? Becasue if I didn't the only time I would have music is when the bass was on and that wouldn't work for all of the time. So, I made a new faceplate for my toggle switch box. I used thick plexi. That is in and all hooked up. I also began working on getting the new plexi in for the amp rack. Next month I am hoping to order my new box. It will be black carpeting with a green port. Pics:

Okay, first of all, I really meant to answer/respond before this, but I went to jail for 10 days. PLEASE DO NOT ask why, it is very personal. Anyway, I have been home since monday and have been busy. First of all, I finalized the wire cleanup. I have also built a rack for my 4 channel amp. It will be leaned against the back of the sub box. Speaking of sub boxes, I am still trying to decide what to do, order or build myself. I am leaning towards building myself because of cost. I got my new HO alternator back in and I have put my high heat split wire looming on all of my big 3 and amp wires. I am also going to put "Riddle Me This" on the inside of my trunk lid with the green neon wire. Now, the pics:

So, other than the sawdust, staples to be painted and a little more paint, this is done.

AWESOME! Except for some cosmetic things. The box is covering up the plexi, the other amp rack is not fitting like I wanted. Just petty stuff that I will work out. As far as the subs, WOW! It's like riding a roller coaster, when your done, your like phew! LOL
