Well... the 2015 USACi season is in the books so I figured I would catch y'all up on the Civic.
Some of you may remember that I sold the CRX and bought a trunk car. More about that here... What I've been up to...
Anyway, I got the car back from the swap way back in June. And that really, really should have been plenty of time to get everything done. The first box I tried was tried and true. (2) 15's and slot port forward. Car was still bare/unprepped but it did a great number at Scapin' the Coast. Managed a 154.5 in 2k clamped. That's a solid start.
I was pretty sure I needed more than that for finals and I knew the other style box was louder so I set about prepping the trunk. I've always wanted to try to turn the entire trunk into its own "chamber" since trunks already act like a loading chamber anyway. I just decided to help it along. And not just with deadener. It turned into a beast of a project.
And so it begins...
I don't share a ton of personal stuff on here, but the pics above were as far as I got before my beautiful baby boy was born. My significant other came home from work and I had my whole family at the house 24/7. That's a very rare thing and I had to choose between the garage and family time. It was a no brainer. The build came to a grinding halt.
After some time off work, I managed to sneak out into the garage while everyone was napping or when I got home from work at 3 A.M. 30 minute to one hour chunks was all I could manage so the going was slow.
Glass work begins. And I should note... I'm not very good at this shit.
With the floor mostly done, I started on the corners. Like I said, I don't do fab work like this often so I'm not sure how people do this. I didn't want to just stretch cloth across these corners because I wanted to be able to remove all of it without the use of the 'jaws of life' later. And just tape didn't seem like the best idea, so I used some screen material to shape it the way I wanted. Kinda like paper mache', I guess? It actually worked out pretty well.
Ol' boy turned 150k in the meantime. I was still daily driving it.
