Default Started on some stuff in the daughters car

I already had a cheapy Alpine ipod deck in there and some Infinity 5032s in the front doors. Today I added an old old Alpine amp for bass and some Infinity 6x9s to replace the stock 8ohm delcos (wow 8 ohm GM, why do that?). I started taping off for a fiberglass box. I ran some stock Nissan Bose 6.5s off the amp for now hoping that they would sound ok, they really dont so it shall hasten the box build.

and this was after starting on the wifes fiberglass box. I thought Id get started on all the wood parts and then fleece and glass it all in one weekend, maybe next along with the fiberglass dash Im building for the S-15 I got. I got a lot of sanding and stuff to do on the dash and the box, as well as hitting the router on the edges of the box, then fleece and resin

That looks like a great start. How do you measure volume for oddly shaped dimensions like that?
