Continuing with the sound system upgrades-
I was hanging out at a neighbors pool party this weekend talking about building a custom box for the back of the jeep when one of my wheeling buddies said he used to build those all of the time. So a couple of rum and cokes and a sunburn later I brought my plans for a sub over to Bill's place.
I needed something that would allow for a fuel cell and
the rear seat to fit with a sub, but wasn't quite ready to tackle the "sub in a seat" project. So we decided to build something that would tuck nicely behind the passenger seat. When I say we, I cut a few pieces of wood and let Bill show off his expertise
. I did do a very good job of drinking his beer though..... A reputation my Colorado crew will probably get a good laugh out of
First up was cutting some of the panels:
Bill jigsawwing out the sub hole:
A little wood glue to help with the screws in holding this thing together:
Basic frame screwed together. Along with the 10" MTX competition sub:
More test fitting- it's a micro box, but it's going in a daily driver race rig, so compromises need to be made:
Bill adding some seam sealer to air tight this thing up:
Side hole for the wires:
Welcome to the suck. I swear it took me 2 hours to cover this thing:
Finished up and ready for install:
I couldn't thank Bill enough for the help.... or the beer.
Speaking of which, he just put in the Rokmen 1/2" body lift on his rig. Hopefully we will be raking these things over the rocks on Saturday at The Flats off-road park.
