Does anybody know the legalities of cutting the parcel shelf
Every other time i have put speakers in (Pezzas and freinds cars) i have cut the shelf/doors.
I've got some x-plod 6x9's to chuck in my EAII (when i can afford a decent head unit), but of course it was engineered without good sound it mind and has 6's, i am going to cut them in but was just wondering where i stand in doing so..
what have others done
cause the shelf has been engineered, and wouldnt then altering it mean its a modifation so VicRoads will want to know and all?? (i dont think it is really that important but)
(oh yeah and pods just dont give enough definition for my likes, so i wouldnt think of suing them)
it dosent alter strength much if at all. Your cutting a tiny bit on each side of the 6'' hole. File it back nice and you will never notice the differance. Mine look like it came from the factory with 6x9 holes in the p/shelf.

I used a nibbler to make my speaker holes bigger and they didn't cut into the bends and steps on the parcel shelf. I would imagine that the parcel shelf is designed to take 6 and 6x9 speakers by looking at where they do go after you have cut the holes. I have had no problems with my car since I did it. Never really occured to me it would alter the structure of the car, however, does this mean you seriously have to go out and get an engineers' just to fit speakers? I should hope not.... Anyways, I think its ok as long as you don't cut holes big enough to climb into...lol
