no pressure there to repond, eh?  at least everyone can spell my name...

Anyway, I think I've addressed the coupe chassis pretty heavily on my
web site.

The 4kq... since I am about to acquire an '84, for parts I guess,
tomorrow, I will have a chance to see how much more difficult the sheet
metal is to work with back there.

As mentioned, i am a big proponent of putting in 3/4" plywood in order
to get decent sound in a car.

Also, when i get my car painted (irl, not photoshop!) i will be pulling
the rear board which will give me a chance to take some good photos of
it for my web site.
