So I was actually up last night thinking about the fact that the backs of the speakers will be exposed to the engine blow by, fumes etc and decided to box them in on the back. I went way overkill but this box is gonna make the one that came from the factory look cheep. Lots of PL premium was abused in the making of the lower doghouse.

Nice work, I am sure you verified there is clearance for the speakers

The upper doghouse was cracking on both sides from people sitting on it so I used a couple pieces of aluminum to shore up the cracks and added vertical supports so people can sit on it for another 20 years. I'm gonna get some colour matched paint and paint it to match the new vinyl upholstery so all the ugly revits won't be so visible.

What gauge aluminum did you use?

IMO I would have used glass mat to stiffen the area.
