!!!

hey cheers! see i like it with the the grey bars aswell its way to mainstream with the white bars! and with the sub its just out in the air but im gonna box that angled part of the front of the tray in tatally air tight and watertight but im thinking that the box is gonna be to big a volume for the sub so im going to section it off so the sub is still punchy! but its not finished yet bro its still a work in progress!!

1999 VS Ute
You do know about using the secondary fuel cell as an enclosure for your ute right..? If not, then if you look behind your seats, you'll see 4 little tabs.. Remove the 2 passanger ones.. Put your hand in, and that you'll see is the seconadary fuel cell. Or lift off the lid in the back of your tray and you'll see. Best place for a sub imo.. No one can see it (perfect for assholes that love breaking into cars).. And also gives off great quality bass.. Enough room to fit an 12" Alpine type R sub.. Just letting you know incase you didnt know, lol. Also invest in a car alarm if you haven't already hey.. Best thing money can buy. I learnt the hard way, and now have a hole in my door under the handle.. (would have preffered a smashed window)
