    Here are the pod baffles, after I cut them out I had to leave to go get a router bit to round the corners. Going to coat them in fiberglass tonight when I get home, more pics coming later.







    I do not have access to a CNC router so I did the best I could.

    Once I got the corners rounded and everything sanded to where both baffles were as close to symmetrical as I could get them by hand I coated them in fiber glass. Here are some pictures along the way.



    Once the glass was dry I mounted the baffles to the pillar using 6/32 all thread. I figured the all thread would give me some adjustability to fine tune imaging. I drilled angled holes into the back of the baffle, I didn't go all the way through just enough to epoxy the all thread in and create a decent amount of bonding surface.








    Letting the epoxy set up right now. I do not have the tweeters here yet, let's hope that the mounting hole dimension that CDT listed on the website is accurate.

    Pulled the stretch cloth and poured in a duraglass and fiberglass resin mixture. The duraglass by itself was much to thick to pour by itself so I had to thin it out with resin. Will post more pics tomorrow.

    where did you buy your "stretch cloth"
    i've asked around and no one knows exactly what it is...

    Liking how the pods are coming together keep up the good work

    Thanks, glad you like it so far...

    Basically I went to the fabric store and found material that was very stretchy but didn't become to transparent so it wouldn't allow the glass to soak through. Not sure if it could be considered "stretch cloth" that is specifically used for fiberglass molding but it does seem to work just fine. I got 2 yards of it for $14, the vinyl I bought was $54 for two yards.

    Finally got my install done. Took my spare out and mounted my amp under the hatch door. Its like riding in a BMW now. Much quieter ride. When it gets warm going to make sure I get 100% coverage in the hatch and after I switch to E85 going to put additional layers under the rear seat. Has anyone deadened their head liner? Is it worth undertaking?
