so i just realized i never added pics of the rear strut bar..






this is all you see of it with the subs in the way.

it has made such a difference in noise reduction. it seems to do what it is supposed to, as handling seems to be improved. i am not sure how much of that may be placebo effect... but i still love it either way.

Awesome. If it wasn't for the lost trunk space, I would definitely do that too.

2 things i would do different is flush mount the green led's on the sides say where the bar mounts and either lime green or black flex loom over the wires....or mount the amps on the side to give you some trunk space would be nice.

I'm going to loom the wires. And the leds you see are really just to shine on the back of the seats when they are up right.
I have recessed leds on the side of the box, up near the seatbelt, under the trim piece.
Trunk space? Pssh who needs it.

I might end up moving the amps under the front seats. No one ever rides in the back

so back to this but with fiberglass'd side vents.
