Hey, this is! The speakers sound good in them, no rattle or banging around, as the cutouts are perfectly measured and cut (even with the slit). One of the best purchases I've made for the Ti in years as far as quality.

I put some foam material on top near the window so I can sit my arm down if I need to rest it. That way, I don't cut myself on the thin raw metal that would be left exposed. Pics below of this and the whole interior:

I'm going to be giving the front and rear aprons a makeover when it warms up to clean up some imperfections and add a new look. Stay tuned

Ced, is the battery secured or sitting in the cubby? While I got mine in snug, looking for a solid retention method. Mine is secured with high density foam at the moment until I can find a suitable tray/bracket.

Thanks!

I've actually replaced that battery with a longer one, and notched the inside to get it to fit. The previous battery was in there within the cubby bucket. I cut it up to secure the battery in place. The new battery is just in there. Won't move anywhere but up. Can you post your foam insert you have? I'm curious. Thanks!

Beautiful car Cedric. Congrats

Jealousy sets in.

I saw it listed in Homestead and asked the dude if I could view it. He stated that he was moving to Punta Gorda the following day. Well, I only live a few miles away from Punta Gorda. Then, I couldn't get in touch with him. I soon forgot about it. But, it's nice to know it wound up in the hands of a friend. I hope it's as awesome as I want to believe it is.
Do you know who did the swap?

Ha, the car had a ways to go when it arrived, such as the interior, radiator needed a fan, and needs a few things still before I'd be done with it for a while (unless boost comes into play...)

Great looking car - I got a few of the calendars and gave them to track buddies. Yours was definitely a favorite.

Cheers
