Default 2007 Double Din Conversion & Custom Sub Box

So I decided I wanted to upgrade my headunit to a double din sony XAV-70BT along with adding 2 12" Audiobahn subs and a flush mounted hifonics Amp. I had to buy a NAV bezel offline then i sold my 1.5 din bezel and made most of the money back so that was a trade basically. i put in a PAC Lc-1 inline gain control into a knockout right next to the rear power window button. it looks basically oem which is great just for on the fly bass adjustments. I welded together a Trim piece for the amp and got it chrome plated to match the speaker rings. I think it came out pretty good. I didnt get the amp in yet so there is no finished pic of the sub box install but it will be coming soon. i also am going to be making some small brackets that bolt to the underside of the box and integrate into my seat brackets just to make it alot harder for somebody to steal. those will be chrome plated too. now for the pics.. let me know what you guys think !

Good job on the install, it looks good.

It looks like you cut a hole in the box to sink the amp in. Did you happen to seal the air space cavity back up after cutting out the hole?
