Cool 2004 Sonic Blue SVT Slow Build

I bought this car 2 weeks ago as my winter driver/toy. Here it is now after window tint:






I have several mod plans for this car, but nothing major:
CD Player and Sub
Independent Fog Light Mod
Paint both bumpers (they are pretty bad)
CFM Rear motor mount
CFM Shifter
Toms Tune
CAI (Ordered the ebay one, will be changing the filter and adding a bypass valve)
Offroad pipe
Nightshade grille lights
Black bumper lights
Paint calipers (not sure on color yet)

I started my stereo install today, I wanted to hide my amplifier so I modded the factory sub box to make a hidden amplifier. All I had to do was cut 1 1/2" out of the back of the box, out of the brackets and weld it back together and make some 1 1/2" MDF Spacers for the bottom brackets.





Here is my 10W7 that will be going in the car before next weekend:

And the CD Player I just ordered that will arrive next Thursday:


I will keep this thread up to date on my build and you can follow me on Instagram @dross93ranger

People woulda loved to get that OEM subbox:(

There are directions floating around here on how to build boxes that fit in those spots. Viperthreat's directions, iirc. Where are you hiding the sub at? It wont look right unless the sub is hidden as well.

The sub won't be hidden, I put it this way for easy removal if I need trunk space. This way all I will have to do is undo the 2 wires at the sub box to remove it. I doubt there is a way to hide a 10w7 in this little car lol.

I got my system in today and new lug nuts all around since mine were mix and matched and rusty! Looks much better now!
