    My brother did the same, wanted a custom enclosure and wanted a "brother" discount. Was only gonna pay me $20 and a six pack... no thanks. I think he thought it only took like an hour to do, and that's all. Once he found out what the local shops charge he decided to actually pay me enough for my time. We're still doing a mostly MDF box, and just a fiberglass face. I might post that here (fab forum) for those wanting to see it.

    I feel your pain with people not appreciating the time that it takes to do installations like this. My brother asked me to do the entire back of his cherokee in fiberglass, did not want to help nor did not want to pay but $50 for the work. Needless to say he still has a MDf box with the amps mounted on the back. No pay, No play
    I appreciate it. Moving the temp control wasn't that bad. I did have to excent my wiring to put in in the console because I had to run it from the dash, under the carpet, and up through a pvc pipe hole that went to the location that it is now. The console is a subwoofer enclosure so I couldn't just run it straight. I figure it took me around 15-20 minutes to extend the wiring. Just remember to do 1 wire at a time bacause some of the wires are the same color.

    As for doing work for other people...I give prices and most don't do it. The ones that went for it I had given VERY good prices.

    ya, most shops charge around $60 to $80 an hour for custom work, my price is usually down near $20 to $30. I want subs in my doors too, I just don't know when that will happen. Maybe in a different car...

    I would charge someone ALOT to do subs in the doors. That requires alot of reinforcement and tons of deadener. You've gotta make sure that there are no rattles and still then.......tactile energy transfer can be a nightmare.
