    I originally intended to go with the perforated vinyl, but since other elements of the interior are not stock I decided to upgrade the headliner material. I used Alcantara, which is basically synthetic suede. I'm using the same material (but a different color) for the insets on my seats. I will take some pics of the headliner when I get home tonight, or maybe tomorrow morning. Stock Interiors has a wide range of the perforated vinyl in a lot of colors, so if you want to go that route, definitely take a look at their website.

    I've been focusing on the subwoofer box for the last week because I dont have a lot else to do at the moment. It is a royal pain, but I am almost done with the basic build and I am pretty eager to hear it thump.

    Well, if it would stop raining and drizzling here, I think I am ready to take my car out for a test drive, then get it formally inspected. Since I am pretty much stuck working on projects that I can do from inside the garage, I will post a few teaser pics of some things I finished this summer.

    Firstly, I am most proud of my custom subwoofer box. This took forever to design and build. I might create a dedicated How To post in the audio forum on this. This is a 10" JL Audio sub.

    I am pretty happy with how this turned out, especially considering this is the first subwoofer box I have ever built. It was incredibly tricky to build!

    One shot from the assembly process... This is why you can never have too many clamps.
