is this the sort of idea?



depends on how much time you want to put into it. and what you want out of it. Gotta get a hinged false floor in there so you can still access your spare wheel.

Sticky and messy - and that's just the fibre glass and resin :grin:

Have you done a boot build before?

Chris 'N' Jen - like the boot install!

Where did you get the carpet from? Is it actual golf boot carpet or just new carpet from carpet store?

More questions :laugh:

Did you custom build that from mdf?

I was thinking of putting a sub on one side and an amp on the other, 6x9 in the parcel shelf. Just need time and money ...

i know for a fact that the bloke at stealthbox has a 10" sub box that he made in error as he was supposed to make me a 12" box - might be worth asking if he wants to offload it cheep?

or if you want to try it yourself have a look at this...

that link is awesome, cheers guy. If i can make some sense of it and see if can get the "ingredients" and i will have a go. My m8 will probably give me a hand. If it goes well, he will probs do it to his Leon.

The 10" box sounds interesting. Is it completed finished with carpet? - and also - Is it just a box or a custom made box to fit perfectly in the boot, like the one in the link?

Cheers m8
