    well you have to have some idea of what you want it to look like so start by drawing it out and then go from there. make it out of mdf and or fiberglass...

    Very nice Gen5EG, is that yours or just a random pic?

    phatcow, there really is no "standard" for an amp rack... you make it to fit your needs/taste. It can be as crude as a board that you screw to your trunk to mount your amps on, or it can be very elaborate. it is up to you.
