    anyone want to make $$$ for a custom enclosure?

    Hey... anyone in or close to Jersey with good fiberglassing experience? I want to get a box for my g35 sedan similar to the 4080 (fits in side pocket on trunk) but with a little bit more airspace & for a 12" woofer.... went to a car audio shop & they quoted $500 for them to make the same thing, but i've seen a lot of people mention paying around $250 for the same type of enclosure on various forums....
    also, not worried about how it looks so much as functionality... so plain carpet on the outside would be fine....

    so uh... yeah.... if anyone wants to make a few bucks or know a place i can get this made without getting raped on the price let me know

    I'm in ATL but I'd do it. Do you have a picture of the area you're wanting to put this?

    hey, i have a 2000 camry with a 4 speaker system. talking with ppl on forums i have found it in my best interest to remove the camry rear speakers and leave the holes empty to vent my subs in the trunk (made a huge difference) but now i'm left with 2 speakers... i'm upgrading those speakers now, but i'd still like to see if there is anything i can get custom built to add 2 speakers to the back. not sure where they'd go, maybe rear door panel like the fronts, or somewhere else just to even out the sound. thanks, i live in the ATL to.

    instead of spending money on that, spend the extra $$$ on getting a 3-way component set for the front & just make sure you get them positioned correctly... you wont have to worry about rear fill if you get it done right with decent staging and imaging.....

    Headlights are the really bright ones in the front. Is it a plastic part that you're talking about or is it formed carpet?

    If it's got no form to it except formed plastic, someone's going to need your car to do this bro.
