Re: 2020 RAV4 hybrid with Frank

We were always on a time crunch to try and get it back to them and when that happens corners sometimes h...

Re: construction finally starts

today I was happy to be able to wiggle in a really nice/complete tool kit on the passenger side and then started on the back wall. Next I will fiberglass those 3 pieces together so that they come up to the seal around the trunk edge.

Re: construction finally starts

and today I did the other side and started on the back wall area. I was hoping to make it in one piece but that is not going to happen. I put a window on this side just out for the sake of symmetry. Behind it I am going to hide a tool kit but on the window itself I might make a system lay out or may...

Re: construction finally starts

I have been busy, a little on the box and with the transmission(STILL!) and with life in general. I was finally able to install the box and I made a grill to go in front of the woofer to protect it and to add a little style. https://i.imgur.com/6irGHPA.jpg I painted the grill a black candy that has ...

Re: Nickel plated heat sinks

not sure exactly. I think what he means is that nickel like a lot of metals will corrode if its handled. Think of how an old penny can look after its been in circulation, but then think about the sets in coin collections that still looks shiny as can be. I had my dd10 and some other pieces plated to...

Re: construction finally starts

work on this project has slowed a little because I finally was able to get the alignment dowels out of the block to allow me to install offset dowels to correct the run out. Hopefully the rest of it goes well but I did manage to get the first strand of leds in place and I could not resist powering t...

I am a bit of an old school pg freak myself. The x-max were not a bad sub but I can't say they were my fav sub either. I must admit that I have not messed with the new gear to have a true opinion on it I am just being my snobby old school self I guess. The system I am building is based around the ol...
