It's been -20 degrees here lately, so working on projects in the shop have kind of slowed down..
There were a few days with "above zero" weather, but I decided to pull my 47' Chevy in the shop and do some work on it!

That Chevy is awesome.

Is the body remade in Stainless Steel?

Dude those new speakers are awesome, can you tell us the specs?  The diameter, the distance across the screw holes, the Ohms rating, and the depth?

Right but thinking of putting them in a different brand of box, not a Lasonic.  Have you installed them yet?  If not, could you measure them?  Pretty please?   lol

They also fit perfect in the 20/20 boxes and bolt right up as one member already used them and they sound better than OEM ones ;-)

Hell yeah! You might wanna think about beefing up that handle too...don't know if it'll be sturdy enough. Just a thought.

Definitely.  Has metal bracing been considered to spread the weight across the case? :hmmm:
