i am working on my first stereo upgrade in a 98 xcab tacoma. i have made a baffle for a MB Quart component speaker set that i had from awhile ago.

my problem is that the window guide rail is in the way so i have to put the speaker on a slant on top of the baffle i made from 3/4" mdf. how do i fill in that area where the speaker is not flush with the baffle?

ok here is what i have tried to do so far.

i taped off the speaker and was just going to keep that position of the speaker and fiberglass it in place.

but then i tried the shim idea with my dodgy tools i have.
is this going to work?

and i also don't know how i'm going to mount my tweeter as there is just a screw in the back and no mounting holes on the face of the speaker.

how does everyone make it look so easy. granted this is my first try at this but still...

What the hell are you doing...... this really doesn't make any sense?

A 1/2 inch spacer wouldn't put that speaker far enough away from the window?

sorry, i'm a little drunk
