Welcome & congrats, nice color choice! Is it manual or auto?
The box barely fits in there, sure it sounds great in the little car.
What did you do to headlights?

Thanks for the welcome. The speakers sound great in the hatch. I plan on doing a custom box later to make more room. As for the lights I plasti dipped eyelids on. Really easy and reversible since I wasn't sure i would like it. Later I'll probably remove it and tint the lights and then put the eyelid back on. If anyone is interested in how to do the eyelids I can do a write up on how to.

Thanks. I used plastidip on pretty much everything. Wheels, running lights, and eyelids. Its pretty durable so far. I've done two car wash's shined the wheels and its all still holding up.

Nice, what plan do you have for the exhaust? Are you doing coilovers or springs?

Coilovers are nice if they have right springs & you gety them dialed in to what you like. I have never bought an exhaust for my car, I built it. More fun & a more of a one of a kind sound. If you do a muffler delete make sure you cut so you can put it back on. Cherry bomb has some nice mufflers to choose from most dont know about & you can get idea of what it may sound like on there site.
Good luck
