Well here's where we are currently. Still got lots of filler work to do, but it's a start.

Started with this

Add some rings, fleece, fiberglassmat, some resin, and one coat of filler and we get to here

I'm more concerned with the number of drivers period. I tried to get the tweets as close together as possible. This was the only way I could get them remotely close together. The tweets can be swiveled ( sp?) in their mounting cups to help with imaging. :)

As am I. Of course depending upon the power Aaron is going to run to each set. I suspect he will have an ungodly loud front stage :)

me either, it doesn't stick at all. So I drilled little holes every inch or so along the edge to give the resin some teeth so to speak :)

Will try, it's colder than a well diggers butt crack here currently. Got three heaters going in the garage and it still takes for ever for resin to cure :)

Nice nice nice.
Looks like I am gonna have to step up the game and start looking for some even more awful fleece/lycra to use.
Although my flowers and smily faces were pretty good.

So this will be a sealed enclosure without any holes going into the doors ??

The reason I ask is that I have to glass in my components and I have no clue as to what I'm doing.
The more research the better.

This particular application will be sealed. Depends on your application, speakers, and frequency range your after wether to seal or IB in the doors. :)

I got some rather animalistic lycra ( bathing suit material, per your suggestion) for an enclosure & amp rack I'm gonna build for my brothers Accord for Christmas. It's pretty **** also ;) Gotta wait till I get done with these first though :)

Don't make me break out the Care Bears, Rainbow Brite, or worse yet the Barney Fleece on ya ;) Local wallyworld always has all of the above and several other strange offerings. I got my eye on some power rangers fleece on the clearance rack :D :)

Thanks for that.
I wont be doing anything as detailed as you, just basic pods.
After several weeks of research your pictures kind of threw me off track but it's all cleared up now.

Nice work BTW, I wish that mine come out 10% as good as yours.

Looks good so far ramos. Similar fashion to some panels I did in a Golf. I'm surprised you actually use spot putty, I hate the stuff.

Maybe I have bad luck with it, it usually sands too easy for me. Baby powder and resin seem to do the trick on my end. Or I get uber lazy and decide that fixing pinholes is for chumps and carpet the project. More time for beer. :D

I usually use high build primer. But it's so freakin cold in my garage the spot filler dries allot quicker. :)

a lil trick i used on glassing to plastic--- i glassed it up, drilled a hole, then rivited a couple real small dingers on there ;) worked like a charm.

ramos
12-08-2005, 01:27 PM
I'm trying something similar on another project. Essentially I will be glassing in bolts, that will attach the fleece/mat panel to the door panel itself. Then just fill over top of the heads onthe fleece side. Then nuts on the back of the door panel. :)

I'm almost completely done. But nobody get's to see the finished product before the owner, Mr. Denim :nono: :)

Don't forget about us here, as soon as the owner gets over the shock of how cool it looks and sounds post some pictures.
