There are still so many W123's and W124's running around this city.  My sister's W124 is still rolling along.  I still want another.

That specific one was on ebay for $189K, EVO II are really rare

Yes.  But you know me, way too cheap to spend $200k on a car in particular when you can build a better one cheaper.  Then I would have different wheels and no wing.

So amplifier changes have changed already. I had a US Acoustics Barbara Ann laying around. I am going to use it, I also just purchased a Lisa to pair with it.

Nice Amplifiers. 

One on a pair of SSA tweeters flush mounted in the dash and one on a pair of SSA 6.5s in the doors would make for a bad ass setup !!!  

Just Saying

I will for sure try the new tweeters, depending how far I get with the rest of the install by the time they come out they may be install first. The Evil 6.5's will be installed into the kicks. This car does not come with door speakers factory, I thought it would be easier to add woofers in the kick panels rather then in the doors.

Spray foam for mounting and bondo for sealing around holes.

Acetone will clean the spray foam up like it was never there.

Yeah, but it will melt ABS and PE though, and I think that insert is HDPE.

That is painted metal, its the spare tire/trunk floor. Most of it just scraped off. I will be using some acetone based solution to remove the rest of it. Either way this is going to be covered. I am thinking about using the Second Skin Sludge to deaden this area and then I will be building a spare tire enclosure for the DCON or GCON.

Damn, it looks like molded plastic.  That's some crazy stamping!

Sludge makes zero sense to me.  No constrained layer = fail
