Top trim panel complete, ready for the custom laser cut 2mm steel grille (with Jeep logo cut into it)
I also added the 18mm routered floor and opted for 50mm pine bracing in the centre instead of steel. This thing is damn strong without the need for steel. I also used a 10mm roundover bit to smooth the corners over a bit more. 4x 18mm ribs in the outer perimeter slow the turbulance inside the circular shape enclosure a little bit. Hopefully this will cancel out some of the inherit design flaws of a cylinder enclosure.
I'm still not happy with it: I've changed my mind and the grille will now be circular (not square) so tomorrow, I'll re-do the top panel and redesign the custom 2mm steel grille to be round instead of square

Strength test: 85kg on top... PASS

Also, It seems the Jeep has multiplied.. This one is an '03 Grand Cherokee Overland so it has the nicer Leather/Alcantara trim, sunroof, quadradrive, rock sliders and the more powerful 190kw engine. I've just picked this up for my mate who is currently overseas and will be returning in a couple of weeks.

It seems my family have a Jeep Problem, Jeeps have multiplied again

The burgundy one is my dad's new daily driver, a '00 V8 Grand Cherokee Limited, in absolute mint condition: 1 elderly owner, garaged it's entire life and never driven on a dirt road.
What must my neighbours be thinking :/

WOW!! That subwoofer setup in the back is AWESOME! Does the carpeted cover affect sound at all? And that green ZJ looks SOO clean.....
