86 the neon! Just sitting out in the open like that, makes the install look half a$$ed. If you use the neon to backlight the amps I think it would look sweet.

yeah i know i wouldnt keep em like that..maybe a few on the ceiling but..what do you mean by back lighting the amps..do you think i should use instead of the carpet planks..use plexiglass for the stands for the amps..and then stick a blue led under those so they shine through..if you can..show me a diagram if ya got time of what ya mean :D

exactly.... you would need to use wood and cut it yourself. What I would do is make your box w/o worrying about the humps... then... on your last peice w/ the subs, cut it to fit around the humps so it looks like the box is make to fit. Don't try and make the actual boxes go around them... it will would funny and be a pain in the butt

When you put a standard shaped box (rectangular) in your car.... if you stand at the rear of the car and look towards the back of the seat, you will see the back seat. What I suggest (if you don't want to see the humps) is that the face of the box that is closest to you while standing at the rear... you cut it so that it fits perfectly around the humps and bends of the trunk. It will look like the entire box is perfectly fitted to the trunk.
