    Hey all,

    Well it has been a long while since I last posted up anything on this forum.
    I used to be a Zed driver and sold my Zed "DVIOUS"

    Since this time, I have missed my zed and when the time came to get myself a toy and knowing an existing member wanting to sell hers I pounced on it.
    "T-Shay" sold me her zed, which some of the more long term members in WA may remember.

    I got her unlicenced and have a bit of TLC to undertake to get it over the pits and licenced, I need to do this before I start pulling the car apart for a rebuild.
    Basically this car has been sitting in storage for well over a year being run now and then.

    I decided to clean up the interior. I had a Subwoolfer lying around and some timber and this is what I put together... What do you think?

    The final product

    This will do for now till I decide to do the once over again.

    Beautiful!

    I've always envied people who can work with timber and fibre to create sub boxes!

    I have something similar in my boot, but different and worse!!

    Great work mate, the sub box looks fantastic.

    Im looking to do something similar with an 8" sub.

    Are those curved sections below the sub that form it to the rest of the box purely fiberglass or do you need wood to support it also?

    Quick question... Predominantly you've made it out of
    Mdf and smoothe out the edges with fiberglass? Correct? Or did u cover the whole thing with a layer of fg

    Very nice! :cool: I will be tackling this in the next week or so. I have a sub in a slimline tuned box I may use. I think twin subs in these cars are overkill. I want to block the cabin access from the boot compartment too (I have a 2+0) Any advice?

    Sub box

    you need to make a basic frame you can use brackets to hold pieces were you want them then be able to pull a stocking over it to make the shape your after.
    then resin it.
    once done and your happy with the shape fibreglass over the stocking like paper mashe'

    idea

    Make one big box (the sze of the whole boot) with the top inline with the top lip of the boot (I.E. The top of my sub box) Then cut an opening where you want access to the boot and build the sub into the side of this box. This way you get access to the boot when you open the boot lid.

    Sound

    Sounds really good!
    When I made the box the size of the box was my main concern.
    It is also well sound absorbed inside also.

    Sub Box

    Its actually an 8" that I got with the car, which sounds quite decent considering its size.

    I am looking to go to a 12" or maybe 2 of them, next time i get bored and want to rebuild something.

    I am doing an engine pull now, getting ready to do a rebuild.
