I ended up not liking the J deck and changed it for a A deck style side...

Image

I then added the flares...

Image

Then the 20"s 8.5" on front and 20" x 10" on rears... Also upgraded the front bar to the 2009 facelift bar, facelift custom chrome SR5 grill will follow soon.

I stripped out the interior and laid the sound deadening. I did the floor/roof/back wall and two layers in the doors plus Dynamat diffusers in the front doors.

Image
Image


These amps are all brand new. I've 4 monos and 4 4 channels left over from when I worked at FUSION. You get a few people bagging FUSION but usually its just big mouths that don't really know what they are on about. Sure FUSION makes some really crap products just like any entry level brand does but the Jonah stuff was bullet proof and never failed we only ever had two come back ever and one was customer error (even SQ wise it is very surprising).

I ran up from a 950 CCA battery 0 gauge power cable with a FUSION 300amp ANL fuse to the amps where I split them into 4 gauge using a Stinger distribution block. I used Stinger twisted pairs RCA's (can't remember model) for the signal.

Ive ran the Amps behind the rear seat. It you have ever worked on one of these you'll know how hard it was to get them there... 70mm of room at best when the seat is folded up.

Ill throw up the door and tweeter pods later on

I'm looking at C notching the rear chassis so I can drop it further (not really sure on this?) and there's coilovers available for the front. I'm also looking at running a turbo later on down the track.

Ok I'm upping the door and tweeter pods. I should of taken more photos as I only have pics of them in the roughed out stage onwards and none on the glassing etc.

Here I started with the door card off. Masked up the area I'm getting the shape from I penned the shape I wanted with a black texter and laid a 225 layer of glass chopped mat, 1.5 % hardener. Let it set over night then laid a layer of 600 but with less hardener (1.2%) to ease up on the heat (this will cause it to pull at the edges if to hot) but just enough to let set. . The black texter will come through onto the glass so all I need to do it cut it out. Put my ring into the position I wanted. I then grill clothed the main shape and brushed resin to harden it. I laid a 225 mat let it set then a 400 mat. I make my own bog with vinyl ester resin and qcell. Extremely hard when set but sands beautifully and it is extremely light- if you look at my solid tweeter pods it was a handful of bog slapped into the corner of the dash and A pillar... Oh I did mask the area up first (and watch the heat from this mix as it will go off fast and hard or not at all, its to do with the bulk of the mix). look at the tops of the door pods they were perfect untill I added the bog so it gives you an idea of how hot it will go off. I then put my bog onto the door pods to shape them where I wanted to bulk it up etc. I do use normal bog to finish off where I need to but when you see the difference in weight and hardness, well. Sand it all to shape and primer fill until perfect...

I always use Vinyl Ester resin..................

The reason I use only Vinyl is because its a harder plastic than poly (better for sub boxes) and it shrinks a lot less so it will put the corners nowhere near as much. But beware not to buy to much unless you use it constantly as it will go off in the tin in heat!!! It has a short shelf live (but if you have access to a fridge it will keep for years). Plus it will stick to some plastics better that poly ester, with a little scuffing and Methyl Ethyl Ketone it will stick...

Thanks - I didn't start out with the idea I have now but I'm going to add diesel bonnet, sidesteps and front flares to make it look like a slammed 4x4. Obviously its not and anyone that knows there 4x4 Hilux will pick it pretty quick but it will still fool the masses. I've also decided at a later date to add a supercharged or twin turbo 4l v8... :twisted:

You may ask why didn't I just buy a 4x4 - well to be honest I didn't want to spend that much at the time and its my work car and if it was a 4x4 I'd wreak it in no time flat lol.

Nice work I love sound systems and that thing is going to rock !!!!

The moulds your making up look fantastic and with all the sound deadening should make it sound tight

All I heard was "beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep - Supercharged V8"
:lol: :lol:

Seriously though, those door and dash pods are very neat, will look pretty well integrated once they're finished off.

That looks awesome, mate! Nice to see a build up that is focussed on Audio Visual enjoyment. :)
Could I be rude and ask what it cost for the graphics down the side?

A huge up for LUXYLOO for giving me the side steps for free. I was blown away!!!! CHEERS DUDE... As far as the door pods sorry I made them as a one off. The Graphics were $1600 but the company I contracted to went through that many staff they get a $400 discount lol. I left them and have gone out on my own...

Well basically I did the same as the doors but on a larger scale... I wanted a fibreglass box that was in the corner of the car..... well the pics will do it justice...

Image
Image
Image


I once the base was finished, marked where I was going to cut the final shape. Then mounted the sub frame!!! I actually glassed in all of the brackets as well.
The base looks a little thin in places in the pic but were built up later.


Image
Image
Image


Remember this is an 18" sub. It kind of looks like a 15 in this ute for some reason until you get close to it...
I then covered it in grill cloth and gave it a coating of resin.

Ill up the glassing of the top etc later...

I'm building another car at the mo... Its a Mitsi GTO twin turbo. I have invested about $80,000 all up so far. Mind you the stereo is $40,000 of it. Just saying so you know this car isn't my main focus. But I still love it :)

All trimmed up and a raw fit in the car to see where it pulled...

Right all I need to do is fill and prime...
I also on the inside of the box filled all sharp edges and joins (rounded off) with the same mix I used for the tweeter pods and then two layers of 400 chopped class. Adding strength but also spl.
