    Default Any metal fabricators on the forums?

    With the imminent change of car coming up, I'm starting to plan out my new ICE install and have already picked up another couple of amps. My plan being to install six Alpine 3542 "old school" amps (they're cheap but powerful). I currently have four and still on the lookout for a couple more.

    What I'm hoping to do is install them in one long run (or possibly two, one each side, still unsure), but to make it even neater I'd like to have some sort of end cap between each amp that hides the cabling. Some manufacturers make these for some amps, but I don't think they've ever been available for these Alpine ones.

    Is anyone on here a metal fabricator (or heavy duty plastic) that would consider looking at it and if they think they can do it, give me a price for a few?

    I know it's a long shot, but thought I'd ask.

    38 views and no replies, I guess that's a "no" then.

    Oh well, was worth a shot

    Long story short (ish).

    I bought a brand new Vec C 2.0T Estate in 2004 (54 plate) and put thousands of pounds of factory options on it including sunroof, powered bootlid, TPMS, window blinds, factory tints, twin audio, etc etc etc, cost me over £21k

    I split up with my partner after 11 years of us being together and having two kids. We're still friends and get on well and because the car was bought as a family car we agreed she'd keep it and I took the older Saloon (the one I've been slowly doing up) but on the agreement that if she ever couldn't afford to keep the car, I'd get it back.

    She can no longer afford to keep the car, so I will be selling my saloon and that money will go towards something more affordable for her and I am getting back the estate (hopefully in the next few weeks).

    I do love the saloon I have and have spent over two grand on it in the last few months alone starting to do it up, I've never had a single problem with it and it drives like new since all the suspension upgrades and bushes, droplinks etc where done on it BUT, the chance to get back my old car (which I bought from new and everything on it was stuff I wanted) which has the more powerful 2.0T engine instead of the 2.2 in the saloon, has half the mileage on it and is a bigger car is something I can not turn down.

    I'm a little gutted about the saloon as I have plowed a hell of a lot of money (more than the car cost me originally in fact by a long way) and time into it and it was beginning to get to where I wanted it to be. None of the bits are transferrable to the estate so whoever buys my saloon is gonna get a really nice "half done project" car but I can't afford to keep both and it would be pointless as Amy doesn't have a full licence yet and we couldn't afford to insure her on it even if she did.
