    Awesome Baja, one of the nicest I've ever seen. I love the Centerlines, they just "look" correct on a Baja. I left you 5 stars, very nice car! Thanks for the compliments on my ride. I just bought a sub box, didn't have plans to make one, but its still pretty awesome. Its an Obcon GZ 329-10 sealed box. Like they say, "this ain't no ordinary sealed box" it has 1" MDF, brushed aluminum sides, a really nice performing and looking unit. Check them out @ www.obcon.com I wanted a box that would fit in the package tray area and would still allow me to use the backseat if I had passengers, or use the original seat strap to hold down the backseat which would expose the subs for even deeper bass. Well, I got the box and it fits PERFECTLY in the package tray area and still allows me to fold up the backseat. I'm planning on putting 2 10" Infinity Kappa Perfect DVQs in it which can perform at optimal levels when it is used in an enclosure of .75 cu ft., which the sub box is. You can read more about it here http://www.infinitysystems.com/caraudio/product.aspx?ProdId='KAPPA+PERFECT10DVQ'&Ser=KPE&Cat=SUB I also scored a new in the box MTX 421D amplifier off of ebay that will provide about 350 watts RMS to each of the subs. They should rock pretty hard!

    is that about as small as tachs come??

    I like the way your gauges look. Myself I'd rather have them black face just to keep that stock look to them. I dunno if I'm gonna use VDO though most likly Autometer gauges but it depends on what I can get my hands on. The oil presure one would espacally help since well the lil light in the speedo that supposed to tell weather or not I got pressure don't work (acully the whole assembly I think is shot) so right now I'm useing a small light bulb hooked up to come on if the pressure there, and the gauge would elininate that. Are the gauges kinda on the small side?? I'm thinking if there not very big I could put them all in one pod some where that's there when I need to look and still looks good. The lights are prolly gonna be not too far off where yours are. If you look at my updates page you'll see the kinda theme I'm going for.

    thank you for your input on the lights. I have'nt decided on weather or not I'm putting them on yet but on others I've seen they look kinda cool. Also would you recomend mechanical stock or full digital gauges??
