Hey doug you are making amazing progress on your car. Looks incredible.

I got my speakers from turnswitch too. If you haven't already sent him your rear speaker its easy to mod the speaker so the muff holder fits into it. Just use a short piece of an old ink pen or rubber hose to stop the drill from going all the way thru into the speaker. Also, if you put the bracket into the speaker like it would normally go and apply a little pressure it will dimple exactly where you need to drill for the screw. I just used a soldering iron to switch the connectors.
What's she wearing now? Come on!

I know this topic has been dead for a long while now but I thought I should post up a picture of how this project looks now for those who are interested. It took some time and alot of hours but she turned out nice. She even won first place in the F3 class at the T/A Nationals this year.
