    Thanks. I used the wood to make a silicone master mold, so if mine broke, or someone else wanted one, I could whip one up pretty easy.

    Thanks. I wanted something that looks OEM and couldn't find anything, in the US, and under $200. Lol
    I think it turned out pretty good for my first project.

    Got it installed... But it's back out again while I'm installing this



    2.66 ghz core 2 duo, 2 gb ram, 320 gb HDD and maybe an audio card later.
    It's mounted on the factory amp rack.

    I really like your mod job. Looks better than OEM IMHO...
