    Hey guys,
    I will probably be fabricating a fiberglass mold of the cargo space in the back of the truck where the sub, amp, and the storage box are. So basically that whole panel so that you can take advantage of all that space. Many of you have asked about integrating a bigger sub in the rear, amp storage, additional cargo storage so this would give you that ability.

    I am thinking about just making the frame and mounting face for the area in a rough finish, leaving the depth and use to whom ever aquire one.
    Figure it would be about $75-125 per mold, cut and trimmed ready for whatever use you wanted.

    Just thought I'd share, let me know what you think and if it might be of interest.

    One would take this mold and make a speaker box or whatever you wanted to with it correct? It would follow the profile of the original panel? How much volume would that leave?

    Sorry guys, I have had no time to whip out the fiberglass and resin. I was shooting for a November product turn out but law school, work, and life got in the way. I will eventually get to it and once I do you will know about it.

    Missed that Raven....One could use the mold as is for more storage space, make a speaker box, or whatever.

    It will follow the profile of the panel.
    Not sure how much volume it would leave, I don't know how deep I want it to go.
