Yeah sirjee, have to do that, too tired today.Will do tomorrow.
Forgot to mention,

Few practical things kept in mind while making the racks, instead of mounting the Amps vertically, we mounted them horizontally so that I can still use those shelf like compartments on both sides.
The rack is deliberately kept open at the seat side so that it is easier to tune and there is no need to remove the entire rack whenever there is need for tuning.I know that tuning isn't done on daily basis but still, its good to have the option open

My fault. I read Dealer as Distributor in DocG's post.

Yeah, I know, looks bad. Those are screws which go through the plywood into the plastic panel. Need to fix it.

now thats the important part,designing any ICE layout one should always take care of overheating+tunning flexiblities and the most important consuming lesser space possible.

When are you planning for a mumbai trip???

Nice and clean install. However, I have 2 questions.

1. I see that the fibreglassing was done without any masking (As per pics). Was ithe door pad masked on the other side? If no, hasnt the resin found its way to the front of the doorpad?

2. The fibreglass was just applied without the surface made rough? The hardened FG can pop out from the doorpad after a while as the surface wasnt prepared. (read this somewhere)

My questions are just looking at the pics.

Gokhale saaheb, just enjoy the music now. Don't worry about the odd screw and slight defects here and there!

1. No its perfect,nothing has trickled to the other side.

2.Same procedure followed in my Swift, its still intact, no issues there. So I am assuming it would be just fine in this case too
