    Need some inspiration with my boot install... Ideas please guys?

    Right this was always a long term project, i planned on sorting the audio out in my car bit by bit, the main install ive just finished off and its all wired up and sounding lovely, the most recent touches are the plate saying its built by me and the voltmeter pod. However, I dont want to leave it at that as the rest of the car will be treated to little audio touches evrywhere

    Im going to start glassing on the bootlid next, at the moment im thinking two screens, im after ideas of what sort of stuff i could do? any trick ideas? also thinking of adding some ikea style lighting as our european cousins do, to go with the french/spanish theme.

    Here it is as it stands...




    Im after opinions so far and any ideas for the bootlid please

    Btw i didnt post it in the audio section as it doesnt strictly have to be audio installed into the bootlid

    looks good mate. what about some sort of theme running through the boot as our Euro friends do?

    I reckon a single larger screen in the boot would be good - a few people have fitted 2 smaller ones, but a single 15" in there would be
    NOW - Sapphire Black 3dr Astra G

    Could have a set of 6" coax speakers in the lid. Would bring a bit of sound to the rear if your on show.
    Or part of the pannel paint gold (matching car and build) with some sort of logo, maybe embossed.
    Just a thought.
