    What are your plans for the openings ? I see you have some pictures taped up that have a similar design.

    For the upper cab I’m going to fill the center and each end with stationary red laminate covered plywood panels, I’ll be mounting a stereo in the center one with speakers in each end, Probably put some wall lights above the speakers too. The larger openings will be doors made the same way

    Those pictures taped on the wall are of the factory cabinets they offer, They were a $1000 option, Figured I could make them myself cheaper and redesign them a bit the way I want.

    That looks great Boyd… what will it end up running you?? And that is in your trailer, I assume?

    @John Thanks, Yes that’s in the front V-nose of the trailer. On the cost? Well…..It ain’t over yet LOL, When I started I thought I had access to a shear and brake and would have spent about $120 for the aluminum. That fell through and I had to pay to have the aluminum sheet cut and bent. That drove the cost up tremendously ($600). The laminate was $170, Plywood $75. Misc ??? I didn’t save anything Hahaha

    Yes, Gotta have a sub-woofer LOL. I temporarily wired it last night to see how it worked. Oh MY, I’m worried that the vibration will loosen the bond between the outside sheets, It’s a screwless design. I’ve started on the doors today, Maybe have pics soon

    Oh boy did I LOL. And once I passed it I figured might as well go for it. And, Once I realized what I’ve spent I’ve learned that IF ya say it really fast it doesn’t seem to hurt so bad LMAO.

    It has a neon light too, I thought it was going to be a red or white light but it’s more like pinkish or purple LOL. The light plugs into 120v but has a transformer that reduces it to 12v. I’m thinking I can by-pass that and wire it direct to the 12v circuit. Maybe??
