its a trick, if you get resin on your carpet,or panels, you spray it with wd40 so it doesnt "cure" you then wipe it off

They sound way better than just sitting there freeairing off the HU. I think i might fill it with polyfill,it could use a bit more space. but the midbass is promising:)

edit: I did stand on it to make sure it was sturdy. and its pretty sturdy...then again i only weigh 116 lbs...i better find a friend

door pods arent that stealth, and require deadening to back it up, i took the easy way out of that:laugh:

MrSwiss
09-15-2006, 10:22 PM
hah but they way i plan to do it is gonna be like a stealth install, factory appearance. thus i wont need to sand anything. the factory cardboard/carpet strip is going to screw inbetween the speaker and baffle. and inside the door im going to fiberglass about 1/4th of the door to make a small sealed enclosure. its never going to be seen! =D

i will take pics. if i do a bad job i wont post them hehe

they are staged..im sure you knew that ;) So i can hear them clear. hopefully the passenger side will turn out better. I plan on carpeting these so no sanding required:D

I hate chop matte!!! still a bit itchy even after a 20min shower! and it cut me also a bit when i was putting the speaker in.:furious:

use BABY POWDER on your arms before and after, that way the fiberglass doesn't stick to you and make you itch .

for real? can anyone second this statement?

I'd imagine any powder that stays on your arms would work. Hell try some flower. As long as you have a coat of powder I don't see why the chop mat would stick to you.

I forgot to tell you guys. When i applied the second layer of resin on the passenger side. It started to f!cking SMOKE!! I got scared that it was about to ignite i didnt really do much i just watched it like a hawk to make sure it didnt. I guess i had to much hardener.
