sooo its a 4 seater now? is it going to held down tightly? if not i think its illegal?

but since ur already half way there ill give u some ideas......a cup holder that could possible hold the largest cup but also small cups nicely and maybe some pockets so passengers can put their mobile phones and wallets. im guessing thats for either one 12" or 2 x 10" subs? or just speakers? carpet or suede would be nice and some proper arm rests. make sure u put some holes where the wood hits the ground so that the air can flow from those 2 vents u just blocked. oh and if u have spare parts just put in a curtesy light some where =D. just some ideas

phong =P~

i have no chopped or moddified any of the standard parts. the rear has a lip that sits between the seat base and the backrest. the lower part will be bolted to the tunnel but it will house a pair of 6 inch speackers for the dvd system

here you go today progress. the part near the back of the front console will house the 6 " speakers and also be bolted to the tunnel. the rest of the console will clip on to it and with the lip at the back will hold it firmly in place while making it easy to remove. also on the top of the speaker box is a panel that will have 2 of the cup holders fitted the other 2 cup holders will be on the back part of the console and are near the top curve which u may be able to see. as for the space between the rear cup holder and the front cup holder it will be a storage box much like the one in the original front console

nice mate - great idea!! you should think about changing to a 4 seater and make a whole new set-up!! like put buckets into the back - more room for speakers and storage areas!! But no the less great work so far!
