    but yes, i would use dynamat extreme if i had the luxury.
    thanks info was awesome.

    The dremel will be broken out soon, these things are at their ugliest stage in life, going out in a few hours to lay down some bondo shortstrand fiberglass to make the bottom of the kick edge flush will the carpet, more pics tonight

    Re: My 2003 Civic Install

    got any questions dtour, gimme a call. make sure you sand the bottom edge with some 40 grit before you apply that reinforced bondo glass. give it a nice surface to stick to. ill be on watch for the next 8 hours or so. im gonna be tired as hell. but ill have my phone on me.

    as far as the rough inner ring edges go - we are worrying about that last, because its obviously one of the easiest things to fix, im more concerned about leveling out all the bondo and getting it looking more like a stock replacement panel.


    talk to ya later. and yea. thats my hairy\dusty arm in that picture

    Re: My 2003 Civic Install

    Alright, the right (passenger kick) has a small gap that runs beneath it and the carpet, I'm using bondo shortstrand glass to fill in that gap, then more sanding, some light weight filler, priming, you get the idea, heres some pics from a few minutes ago, letting this thing dry before i go any further....


    this is the gap I mentioned above





    heres after a couple of layers of the green stuff, hopefully it releases from the tape fairly easy

    Re: My 2003 Civic Install

    Hey everyone, now looking for a sq sub, the pair of 13av.2's look as if they are going to be delayed yet once again, i called ED today and they said that november 15th probably won't be the time that they are shipping, so basically I'm tired of waiting. Any suggestions, REQ told me about IDMAX, any others worth looking into?

    Re: My 2003 Civic Install

    It's official, I ordered 2 Aura 15's, will have only a couple of inches to spare when I do the IB install, also tried out the kicks for the last couple of day, their all done except for painting and little details, even found some nice grills to go over them, talk about a huge difference in sound compared to having them in the doors, I am definitly keeping them sealed, the power handling is much better than I imagined and they are very tight and accurate, I have them crossed to play 56 to 710 hz, very happy with the kicks so far. Also played with an RTA for 2 hours today, got a very nice flat graph after an hour of playing with it, more to come in a few weeks.
