Just thought I would post a couple of pics of my install that is nearing completion. I have got some build pics so if anyone is interested, let me know and I'll post more up.
The system consists of Focal 165 K2P 6.5" mids and Tweeters up front in custom door builds. These are run actively from a Genesis Dual Mono (mids) and a Genesis Stereo 60 (Tweeters). There is a third Genesis amp, a Mini-Block to run two 12" JL Audio W3v3 Subs. I also have an Audio Control Epicenter to enhance the bass.
Up front, I will be having an Alpine IXA-W507BT connected to a USB laptop hard drive which will be located in the front centre arm rest. I also have an Alpine 6 disc CD changer in the glove box as this head unit does not have a CD or DVD drive in it.
All the boot has been sound deadened with 10 sheets of Dynamat so it hopefully won't rattle too much.
On to the pics...

I must sort out my silver trim panels. They are really badly scratched!
My car came with a single DIN Concert II head unit, and my wife has bought me an Alpine IXA-W507BT double DIN head unit for Christmas so I have had to take all the dash apart to replace the single DIN housing with the Double DIN housng. This is what it was like with it all apart:
I have done a rather nifty build here! I wanted to be able to open the boot when I park up without all my amps and subs on show. To facilitate this, my install can be in two modes, either open or closed. In "open" mode, the floor is flat and the amps and subs are visable (below):
The amps are in front of the subs. Some of it still needs to be trimmed:
In "closed" mode, the amp lid lifts up as shown above, then the larger panel nearer the back of the car lifts up and locks into place to hide the install and make the boot appear "normal" to anyone looking in. There will be a cover over the epicenter eventually:
Below this panel that has lifted up is enough space to store bits like my laptop. The floor of this section also lifts out to facilitate access to the spare wheel:
Hope this has been of interest to someone!
