jus thought i'd let u guys no of some process on my jetta.. today i started my custom stereo enclosure... its sorta hard to explain without pics. i have 2 polk 12"s and it sorta wraps around the trunk in the shape of a half circle but yea hopefully ill finish that up tommoraw morning and my friend and i are starting the "shaving" lol.. most likely gonna work on the rear door handles as a start. im looking to remove all the door trim and eventually get another trunk lid and have that shaved as well. ill hopefully get some pics to show the progress..

Sounds like you have a lot of work cut out for yourself. Good luck and pleeeeeeeeeeeeease post some pics.

Speaking of cutting and shaving... I am cutting the hood on the driver's side.

Just a small 8" x 3" shark fin just to the front and above the CAI to feed it more air in the upcomming and long awaited summer.

Don't be ashamed...

I rolled like that (SEE BELOW) for full day. 24 hours of "WHERE can I hide feeling".

Also please notice my stupid wing back then and the car wasn't lowered for a month after the bodykit went on.

Hey TNP, my old dub (96) we did a custom enclosure in the spare tire well. One of our concerns with my mechanis was getting to the fuel pump. Is this gonna be in the way or are you willing to just chance it?

I really can't wait to see it! I wish the wifey woulda let me keep the 96 dub as a project rebuilder car. Too bad a deer decided to play chicken with me without me seein him comin.

DAMN DEERS

actually i traced a template on the floor and got a piece of particle board cut out to fit in the trunk as a base piece to mount everything on. the base template is elevated about 1.5 inches so i can cut out a design and still have room to run wiring and neon tubes.
