Here are two new 300x's being unboxed and disassembled getting ready for the 15" mids arriving this week. If any of you guys need Brand New mids let me know.

Sorry for the orientation on the pics. Never can get this IPAD to post right🙃🙁

The new 15" mids that we acquired through Todd D are awesome. Based on his recommendation we had them painted via a 3 step process through a company in Cape Canavernal. Could not have asked for a nicer piece.
Assembly to start soon. Hopefully the bolt kits come soon.

Work continues on the mids. Not exactly a perfect fit. After cutting the tuners and starting to assemble some minor grinding to the casting had to be done to allow things to fit. Also found holes for attaching exhaust plate to mid not same depth as factory ones. Stock bolts were 1/8" too long.
