Got the backseat done, just gotta do the package shelf. I put some inside the quarter panel also. Doesn't sound like a tin can anymore. The roof is next.

The subthump adapters didn't fit very well, had to drill all new holes to make it fit under the door panel. Not real happy about that.

nice build man... sometimes it's the most subtle things that make the most difference. i couldn't quite put my finger on it, until i really looked, but using some vinyl trim around the flat part of the front bumper really, really, makes everything stand out. THAT was a good idea.

lowered ride is great, and the rims too

not feeling the painted back part, but to each his own. keep it up, really stellar work!

Thanks man, appreciate it. There's several subtle little changes I've done that I think really change the look of my car from the masses. The black in the back is old school stuff, the SS use to come like that from the factory.
It's a balance thing to, if you do it in the front ya gotta do it in the back. Same with left and right,if you didn't it'd be like putting one set of wheels on the left side and a different set on the right.

Is that to reduce rattle? How much did all that material run you? It's going to sound really good...

I love your wheels btw.

Yes, it's sound deadener, gets rid of the rattle/vibration. Also helps keep the outside noise out. I used 65qr ft, almost 2 boxes. Bought it from Eastwood and got it for $120 a box.
Thanks!!!

Looks good Chris. Can't wait to see the changes. I'm inspired. I think i'm gonna at least do my trunk and doors. When i stand on it and get her up to anything over 4.5k it's like someone revved a harley in my ear drum. This exhaust combo is just nasty at high RPM's.
