Yep, picking up the tune and meth kit on Monday to get started. Planning on building an enclosure for the tank. Then I'm aiming for mid October to get the actual install.

Can anyone recommend someone in the Bay Area that can build a custom enclosure if you provide a good idea of what you want? I need to build something to go in my trunk, and I have all the right ideas, I'm just not sure how to execute it. I was thinking an audio shop could even do it, it will more or less resemble a simple rectangular sub enclosure.

Thanks! Really appreciate that. I'm really trying to balance things out, I went a little too extreme with the hood, which is why I'm going back. Now I want to finish it off by being in a very exclusive group.

BTW, are you still heading out to the east coast? If you're still in NorCal, we should grab some lunch sometime.

Howerton Engineering makes custom tanks. An audio shop can make a box and put the tank inside of it. Look into Advan for a tank. I saw them do a hidden tank too.

I just redid my tank. Still working on the lid but I like it.

Howerton makes a kickass tank, worthy of being left out in the open, so I don't want to buy that just to enclose it. Also, Shiv has a 5 gallon, which would really utilize my idea the best.

Advan's tank is friggen awesome...if you have an E92 and can get them to make you one.

I'm going to post a picture of my tank on FB. Take a look at it. I have a 2.5 gal tank. I'm thinking if you go with a 2-1.5 gal tank, you would be able to hide it.

That's awesome actually - I was considering the same setup, just couldn't figure out the part number to buy that trim. There's a dozen different options on realoem and no pictures.

All out tuning battle between some of us and Ryan is about to kick all our a$$es. Congrats Ryan! Let me know when you go to FFTEC, I'll swing by and we can grab a bite to eat.

I'm using an Aquimist kit, It's the same stuff Vishnu use but with more parts to the kit.

I install the kit myself. It only took me 6 months cause I'm a lazy person.
