I love this! It breaks all the rules and will look oh so impressive when it's done. I especially appreciate that your working entirely in styrene and fabricating so many detail pieces. The motor, the first painted and finished assembly you've shown us so far, has come out very succesfully.

I remembered to bring home some clear, the frame, rear and driveshaft are all a very shiny blue pearl.

A better shot of the color, it's hard to get a good pic of it.

I've got the back hinged. You can see I've started on the door panels too.

Very cool, but may I suggest something? Put the rack with the amps where the subs are now and make a box for the subs where the amps are now. Subwoofers need an airtight enclosure to work and the way you have them now is unrealistic, as they are exposed at their back and pumping into the floor. Either their faces or their backs need to be enclosed. If you you like the detail on their backs to be seen, then you can make a box with its front clear. This way you would be able to see their faces inside the box and their backs sticking out on the other side.

I said the shipment came in, not the fab shop finished the install. :P

Not all subs need to be airtight, free-air and ported subs aren't sealed.

Moving along, the amps and subs are painted, the box and cap are just about ready for primer and bodywork.

Very original, and well-executed. I think woofers do need some way to prevent the out of phase sound waves from front and back from partially cancelling each other. I'm really enjoying this build.

You've inspired me to tear apart my gluebomb, extract the Offy and slice it up. Here's a photo that might help you.

Is it the monogram kit? I'd love to have a pic of a box stock engine.
