    And more pics of the box, now with a layer of DynaHair. This brought the total thickness to at least a half inch.


    Getting ready to weld the bars in place.

    The bottom set of bars.


    Getting the welding rig ready.


    Holding the bars and the jig in place and marking them.

    Ugly tacs..

    With the amps in their approximate positions.


    A better shot to give you a better idea of the new amp rack.


    My own little work area...hehe




    Ugly welds....doesn't matter though since they are going to be ground down shortly.



    Colorful box. This is 5 lbs. of modeling clay to help deaden the box. We didn't put it on all of the underside of the box because we didn't feel it needed it. Only on the big flat area.




    The welds ground down, ready for bondo and paint.




    These are the holes for all the wire to come out through and go to the amps.

    Here we are getting ready to put the piece of wood that we removed back in. FrankenBOX! I will be laying a layer of glass and mat over this area to seal it all off.





    Just another pic of the amp rack.


    And sub box. Here you will notice a second ring. We added in this ring for support as well as the legs for the ring as well.

    Very nice work!

    Isn't the room between the fiber and the wood on the flat surface too little? I don't know anything about this so forgive me my silly question

    Something I do know: watch out riding your bike without protection. Nice tan lines, but dangerous.

    Take care and carry on

    wow, that's some impressive work.

    somehow it's reminiscent of the a-team.

    are you talking about between the clay and the bottom of the box? if so, nope, it should be fine.

    about riding.

    I ride every day. My motorcycle is my commuting vehicle. When it reaches 107 degrees and 115 with the heat index, if I were to wear a jacket, I would quite litterally pass out at a stop light. I'd much rather risk some road rash than to passout while on the bike. However, I always wear jeans and my motorcycle boots as well as leather gloves and my Suomy helmet. AT ALL TIMES. Preaching to me about motorcycle safety is like preaching to the choir. I'm the VP of the Texas A&M University motorcycle club, I'm also a safety officer. It's my responsibility to make sure that everyone is obeying the laws and I've got the cover the clubs ***....

    If I had a welding torch in my car, my wife would simply call them to take me away. That was cool. I need to figure out if there's something that needs to be welded in my car...

    just disconnect your battery and you should be good to go. Also be sure to cover anything remotely near the welding area....if any of that slag were to hit the glass it would instantly shatter it's that hot...hehehe

    the first rack we made in the car like that had me petrafied....but this time I wasn't worried....went a lot quicker like that...lol

    Well, even when I was riding in the sahara, at 122F I wore my tuareg jacket with protection and safety pants with protection. Never fainted, even when pushing the bike in the sand for quite some time.

    I'm not preaching, just worried, that's all

    Road rash is one thing loosing the mobility of your arm another.

    Just take care, ok?

    believe me, you don't have to tell me to take care....

    it seems that no matter how safe you are, there's always someone out there who will act like it's not enough....lol
