Looking good. Fiberglassing is one skill I've never messed with that I definitely should.

I actually got my suede material today and got both pods wrapped. They aren't perfect, but they will work. The imperfections they do have you won't see due to them facing towards the days. Enjoy...

Pillars are wrapped. Pretty easy project. Don't even look too bad with the tan covers in place for the time being.

Started on getting my Big 3 ready today and then realized that I was out of 0awg lugs so I have to wait for my purchase from Sky High Car Audio to come in. Also found a way to route my 0awg power wire from my battery back. Once I get everything routed I will post a walk through on the Big 3 because I found absolutely nothing for the 5th Gen Bull on here for it.

So finally got some time to update and get somethings done...


Friday I came home to my lugs from SHCA so I got my Big 3 all buttoned up. Still have to do some moving around and might have to buy a distro block.









And then today I took my speaker rings that I had my buddy cut me, got them glued all together, sanded them down to make them smooth, and then sprayed them with some undercoating.

Loving this build, I can't wait to start my own. Is 31.5" the max width you could fit back there? I know the opening on my '13 is around 36" wide.

32" is the flat distance so it can slide straight into the opening. It will be sealed off using a beauty panel on the front of the box and then as well as on the back of the box. Both will be wrapped in the same suede I used to wrap the A pillars with.

The RF mini is going under the passenger side seat. Then I will be removing the stock amp from the rear drivers side in the trunk and placing a board where I will be mounting my CleanSweep, AQ, and my 550.2 for a stealth look in the trunk.

Finally got started on getting some deadener in the car. Just got the driver's side door done today. Gonna try and get a door done today. Used about 9 sq ft. Double layered on the inside of the door and then single layer across the skin. Stuff is really easy to install. Not a big fan of the white buytl compound though.

I haven't had the ability to open up the doors yet, so it's good to see it's relatively flat, not super complex, and only has one major opening to be sealed up, which is also relatively flat around it. That makes me even more excited.
