I got the chance to finish the aluminum sides of the amplifier-box.
Youíll see that I made the same wholes into the upperside, like there are in the toggles where the plexi is on.








Itíll look like this on the outerside.







Here itís mounted on to the box. You can see I put some fine gauze on the top. Later Iíll explane why I did this.
Behind the 5 wholes in the bottom thereís a piece of carbonkevlar.

Here some pics of the aluminum toggles I made.

These come on the Left en Right of the amplifier, and serve to tighten the plexi pieces on the sides.

Remember this?





These two wonít be visible.





Of these, youíll only see the upperside. You can also see I screwed a little piece of MDF on the inside.

Thatís were the plexi will lay on to.









This will get into the back. Again, you will only see the upperside.

Also you can see I knocked in an aluminum nail.

This will come between the plexi, a little hard to explain really.

But youíll see what Iím trying to say.










In total, I had a lot of work making this, specially trying to fit and finish it in a descent way.

Getting into the trunk 20x a day, for messuring and trying. Iím going to be so happy when the amplifierbox is finished.
