Alright guys don't hate on me to bad this is the first time i've cut out Mdf rings as well as making a set of kickpanels. So im still learning not with fiberglass but with making the rings/kickpanels themselves. here is what i've got done so far lmk what you guys think appericate it:). I haven't started on passenger kickpanel yet im taking this build slow. plus weather here hasn't been best.
Rings cut out/primed.
