    I like that box a lot, looks good. Is that a brace or is that a board the amp is mounted on? I did something similar in my mustang's trunk
    (crappy rockford has since been replaced with a 2000w HX2 rockford)

    Gotta love that mustang trunk! The convertible trunk is soooo awkwardly shaped.

    The amps are mounted on a separate board that I carpeted and wedged on the left side of the trunk. It is screwed into the the trunk liner.

    I'm going to screw down the woofer as well, probably with a 90 degree metal elbow screwed into a metal plate near the back of the trunk. I take the 'stang autocrossing and I can't have the woofer moving at all (even though it's wedged in there pretty good right now).

    Future plans;
    Beautify the android tablet head unit in the front with a with more putty, some sanding and paint.
    All new suspension to lower the car about 2 inches and allow it to corner a bit better.
    New wheels and tires. Possible 17x10.5 all around or staggered with 18x9 in the front and 18x10 in the rear (grip ).
    New exhaust from the headers back.
    And new speakers in the front and rear of the car (cheap but something that sounds nice and compliments the new woofer).

    I would love to do WAY more. But I don't want to sink too much money into it. My plan is to spend only about what the car is worth, and since I got it for soooo cheap I still have a bit I can put in

    Sounds like some good plans
    I'd definetly go with 9's or smaller in the front so your tires aren't so wide, cuz they'll act like ski's on a snowmobile when they're too wide, especially in water.
    I made a box for 2 6.5's and mounted them to the rear deck via screws. You could take the sub box out, remove the rear deck, drill some holes then mount the box with screws to the rear deck, but that's more of a permanent install (unless removing the carpet on the rear deck isn't a big deal to you lol

    So after all that work the 'stang is now out of commission

    While taking my sister to the doctor I didn't a notice a red light until a second too late. Hit the brakes and slid into an intersection, and into an SUV. Repairable damage, but with liability only insurance ( crap! ) I figured I may as well just upgrade.

    Now I get to start the whole process over with a 2006 Corvette Convertible Z51. I seem to keep finding really cheap, nice cars. And I'm ok with that.

    Anyone wanna buy a 2000 Mustang GT Convertible with repairable front end damage? Engine is still in great shape with only 80k miles. Brand new tires before the wreck. And it's still a clean title.
