Default Kicking up a new Hobby (BoomBoxes)

I have a knack for acquiring old things for free or cheap, boxes, cases, and electronics being some of these things.

I have been installing my own audio in my own vehicles with the expected DIY success rate...

SO.... I want to build a few boom boxes from the cases I have but don't use, using vintage-ish materials. One being an ammo box of insane proportions... no idea how I'm gonna do that one... but i want it to be the grandaddy of garage tunes for my shop.

I will be searching.... alot... and asking questions... alot. I lack some practical electrical experience and I know precisely jack - squat about building speaker boxes.

Sourcing materials has been a challenge
Knowing what materials I need are a bigger challenge...

Thanks for having me, and thanks in advance for all the help.
