Finally starting a build log on here. Haven't taken many pictures but i've pretty much ran all my speaker wiring for my front stage and all my rca's and 2 runs of 1/0. Right now i'm working on my door pods so i'll post up my progress so far. This is my first time at doing door pods so it's a learning process, but i'm pretty happy on how they turned out:

(put a couple layers of resin and some mat on the outside and cloth on the inside but forgot to take pics)
then put body filler on top of that...

got tha hookah ready and sanding down the body filler:

i almost took pics of how I did it cuz I knew someone would ask..lol but I drilled pilot holes through the backs of the door panels and into the fiberglass pods and screwed them together from the rear.....hehe

I really like the door panels, I would like to make some for my van. I see that you have resin inside the sub box, what is the main purpose for that?

Nice build, keep the pics coming

Why not angle those mids in the door pods towards the driver and passenger?
