    Well I am learning as I go. As I said in the beginning of the thread. This is my first time doing a false floor and first time fiber glassing. I think for being the first time it is coming along well. The fans have not been mounted yet they were there to give people an idea of where they will be. I will probably flush them but not sure yet. Everything still have to be wrapped, the plexi glass has to be installed as well as the neons.

    Re: BMW 7 series audio install

    Today has been a bit busy, my father was suppose to deploy for Iraq today but after getting there and waiting 2 hours they had to delay it until tomorrow. Just got back home and will try to get a few things done today even though 5 hours was killed. Just a bit off subject but here is me and him.

    Fleece + resin is brittle. Some people think using thick fleece helps with structure, but it doesn't.

    When you said "2 coats of resin", if you mean that you only applied 2 coat of ONLY resin after the fleece... That's a bad idea. Resin by itself is brittle. Resin needs to be soaked up by the fiberglass mat/cloth to add strength/structure. A single layer of fiberglass mat... not enough at all.

    Bondo is just body filler and doesn't add strength either. it's just to make it look purdy. unless you used bondo-hair.

    You want to make your pods as strong and non-resonant as possible.

    Re: BMW 7 series audio install

    Thats why after the fleece I put a layer of fiberglass matt and resin. But thank you for the heads up.

    Re: BMW 7 series audio install

    take a little constructive criticism, You said yourself this was ur first fiberglass jo, I told you that you couldnt jsut use resin and fleece matthew. if you can knock on those kicks and hear resonace you didnt make them sturdy enough.

    Just tapped them, hard as a rock only resonating I hear is from the opening and a speaker not being there.

    Re: BMW 7 series audio install

    hard yes, sturdy and resonance free, not so much, you should cut the backs and vent them into the area behind the kicks

    Re: BMW 7 series audio install

    A solid set of kicks with one layer of mat is a contradictory statement.
    If the kicks are now finished and fillered, I suggest you go back from the inside of the speaker cutouts and apply as much mat as you can from the inside. It looks like you have gobs of resin just covering the fleece..then you followed it with 1 mat layer.
