Default 2012 scion xb, obsidian 18's

well, everytime I start a build log i never finish it or I get rid of vehicle right after that. But this car is brand new, and looks like i will keep it since it gets excellent gas mileage so I will start a build now. I bought it just for a work car, then me and the wife did some stuff to it and went to couple car shows and won 1st place twice, so now its work/play car. Anyway what it started as to where i am at now, I just put stinger roadkill on roof and back door today, still gotta do other 4 doors, and will start new sub box this weekend. Its just lowered 2" with tanabe springs, 18" xxr wheels, I sanded, sanded, primed, filled, painted and cleared all doors and parts of dash same color as car. Eventually I will have alot more done, but I need subs back in first.

then i ordered 2 skar vvx 12's and skar 1500 to try for little while







and then i decided to sell those subs and get the obsidian 18's while they were in stock, got buck to design me box, subs and port up for now, may do a wall later. Hoping it slams the lows, dont care about any numbers, will still have the skar 1500d on them for now.
