I don't know, I'm not a huge fan of the trunk. Having the fake factory sub next to the new giant box looks really awkward. You could have just made a false side panel if you really wanted to hide the amplifier that badly.

Thanks for the input, I plan on making a false cover without the sub grille sometime next summer. I just need to figure out the best way and go for it, but there are other priorities first.

Can you recover that flexible carpet? What king of glue/what could I use? I was thinking to build a wood shell and cover that.

Finally somebody agrees lol I guess people need visual aides.

Still, another OEM SVT sub box ruined

If you read my post above, it will look fine. I will recover that fabric so it looks like there was never a sub there. If you are going to only post negative comments please post them elsewhere.

I don't think it was meant to come across as negative, merely an opinion that could've actually made you a little extra cash that's all. Future mods seem pretty cool and judging by your sig, you have a few cool rides. Feel free to post them up as well! And, as a suggestion, go with a euro grill instead of nightshades. Will look much cleaner

This.

I don't mean to come across as negative, but by the time you finish hiding that amp, the OEM sub box and carpet will be non-existent. You could have sold that, used the cash to build what you are trying to do - and had some cash left over.

Other than that, I am looking forward to see what else you do! IMO, I would do a lil more research before hacking up parts that Ford no longer makes.
