Factory sub location carpet?

So I am considering putting a sub in the back. I don't have a factory sub, but have already upgraded the headunit and speakers are on the way shortly. While I'm doing that upgrade I was considering adding a sub. I could do a stealthbox or custom a box in the rear panel. I saw on eBay people are selling the factory housing. I don't want huge block shaking bass, just overall good SQ. I was thinking about getting the housing, reinforcing the enclosure with fiberglass and sound deadener, and finding a good quality 8" sub. My real question is will I need a different piece of carpet to cover the rear quarter panel. On the side now is just a cubby. Do they sell a trim price to cover the factory sub or is that something I would have to fabricate? I used to install at a shop and handy with custom boxes and such so that doesn't scare me, just more concerned how much time I'd be spending.

Factory sub location carpet?

you need one of these factory panels (stole pic from 210hawkeye's FS post):

Your best bet would be to find someone that installed a JL Stealthbox and has their stock panel.

You can find them on eBay for about $100 shipped.

I know it's been a while on this post but I was checking if anyone knew where to find that speaker grill panel like the one that was pictured. Any help is greatly appreciated
