some of you may remember when i wreck my cutlass awhile back. well i bought another cutlass and started working on it and decided that i needed to do something to the tweets i had on the a pillars because they were just sitting there. so here's what i did today. not the best but much better than before. i used some random material from wally world, hot glue gun, 2 layers of resin(no strength needed just cosmetic), a layer of spray on truck bed liner for texture, some primer and the paint.

hope those screws aren't to long when you try to put it back in the car.

would have been much eaiser if you had just gotten some kittyhair or bodyfiller, and then just filled in around the tweeter mount, and then sanded and painted :p:

but it turned out real nice.

well i wanted to add texture to the whole piece so thats why i chose to do it like this. also the plastic piece was kind old and was starting to get sun faded and cracked so this was a great alternative for me.
