    Fleece sucks for a finishing material. Everything sticks to it and it looks real bad when you try to vacuum it. Go with carpet or vinyl (vinyl will require an additional layer of bondo and some sanding).

    All done. Well, almost

    Almost there
    Carpet/fleece I mean. Because the trunk is plastic, I have to cover the back of the box as well.


    Test fit.


    This test is a must fit.

    Good thing it's covered in something soft. That way when you're ruining your kid's hearing it won't scratch up his stroller

    PS: buy a grille. I know you think you're careful and everything but the first time you're loading that stroller in a downpour, you'll be happy you did.

    Second that...I just used it for the first time to tack carpet on a trim panel, and that stuff is seriously sticky.

    Very nice job...although I was a little disoriented when saw the pic of the stroller next to the box...I had assumed the box was much larger than it was before seeing that pic, and the first thing that came to my mind when I saw the stroller next to the box was "Geez, that must be a giant baby!" ;-)

    Looks sorta out of place with it being so fuzzy. Looks like a teddy bear!

    I think carpet that matches the trunk would probably be the best. Other than that, looks good.

    Yup, a grille is on my must buying list. The sub will be a Polk DB104. I look at Polk Momo grille, but other peps complain it being rub with the sub when hitting hard. A spacer will solve the problem. Polk grilled look nice but also "too open" for a change that stroller will hit the sub. I am thinking of getting one of hose mess grille with tiny holes (much safer).

    Agree with the "fuzzy Teddy bear" look. I'm looking for some match carpet that can be stretch like flees (not that stretchy but close).

    Oh yeah, believe it or not but my little boy is BIG, and you are not the first one who call him "giant baby". His cousins are calling him that already "Look, look, the giant baby is coming" .

    I plan to use some tie down strap. I know it ghetto, but I don't want to drill any hole or have to unmount the sub just to get access behind or need to flip up the cover to get a spare tires.
