I'd do something to finish off the sub, but otherwise, it looks great!

Looks terrific ...I'd love to see some pics of the doors being upgraded to kill the nasty resonance living there.

BTW Sass take it on the TQ, the amp rack is far from finished and a covering for the sub has already been built.

I don't see anything terribly special about it but it appears nice, clean and simple [img]graemlins/dunno.gif[/img] Better than the last job though for sure.

When I say terrific it means simple, conservative and clean.

Also, it rhymed with horrific.

Obviously, sounding good too.

SUX you'd have to see it in person to appreciate the workmanship and attention to detail...but yes you are right its a pretty straight forward concept.

Thanks islandphile!

SUX, exactly a very straight forward concept that the previous installer could not grasp.

Please do not take this the wrong way; but just like all good installers hate being bargained with, I hate to be taken for a ride when I am willing to pay the installer's price.

My mistake 6 yrs ago was trust and also not getting a quote on paper before starting the work.

Believe me when I say this; Matt was an absolute pain in the *** and a first class loser. I am doing a favour to the next would be victims.

Yes, it took me 6 yrs b/c I needed to remove the previous work to prove my words. Also, I did not know canadiancaraudio existed until this year in Feb.

Looks nice !
Tell me that's not fiberglass pink insulation you are using?
If so, I highly recommend you take it out and replace it with dacron/pillow stuffing.
