Hell if i had spare time my car would have most of the things done to it.

I finally got a subwoofer for my false floor and got most of the wood done but i need a bench saw to cut the wood stright for the top of the floor i have one under the house but its hard to get to.

Still trying to decided if i should go with carpet or Vinyl or even get the black leather on my seats done to the false floor to make it all match.

Do u think it would be over the top with Probe GT cut out in white leather sewed onto the black leather for the floor? Bit to ricey?

Personally I think clean, un-cluttered surfaces (ie: No cut outs) would look better.

Id love to do up an old rx7, but i think that might just cause dad to explode to come home and find another car, and theres nowhere to put it, guess ill just have to keep saying my pennys to get the 6 fixed and finish lol

Yeah i think you might be right i'll go with the black Vinyl/leather depending how the vinyl looks if it sucks im happy to pay the price for the leather.

Once i cut out the floor i have to make the shelf for the sub box and the amp.

Anyone got any idea on how to cutout a Pill shape on some wood?

I could use a jigsaw but i want a perfect looking cut anyone know how people do that do they just hold a template on and jigsaw around it?

Thats just about it, a Jigsaw with a template, followed by lots of sanding and finishing it off with a router for a nice smooth curved edge. Thats how we did similar things back in Yr12 Furniture Design.

The other alternative (if money isn't really an issue) is to pay a cabinet maker/carpenter to do it for you.

5 or 4 door!? its not a wagon is it?

mine is a 76 aswell though built 11/4/76 from memory. the HX model was released in 7/76, so mines a pretty late HJ.
HX's have colourcoded bumpers... does the one in your street?

anyway, when mines done.. its having the plates 'HJGTS4'


btw... you better all be comitted to mx6.com in 20yrs!!!!
we'd all be like 40 n shit
