    Meh....masks are highly over-rated. The fumes keep me going.

    Re: The newbie guide to custom kick panels

    I like your description. But i missed one important detail. How did u actually secure the kick panels to the car? Brackets, screws, bolts? Whats common for this?

    He screwed them in.

    Screws work well ... just make sure you know what and where you're screwing into.

    Velcro has worked for me in the past.

    Some of the last few sets sit in place on their own and don't move around at all ... depends on the design.

    Re: The newbie guide to custom kick panels

    Hey I got the same CDT's,CL-61's?. But I have NO clue on how to mount the grills!

    They dont seem to line up with the drivers. How did you mount your grills to your drivers?

    Thanks!

    Re: The newbie guide to custom kick panels

    ^ I have the same inquiry. It's like the grilles are diametrically (that a word?) larger than the drivers.

    Re: The newbie guide to custom kick panels

    I had that happen as well.

    I just re-drilled my holes.

    They weren't off by much, so maybe you can get away with making them a bit larger.

    Get three screws in there and re-drill the last hole if you want.

    Hopefully that's what you guys mean by "not lining up". After that the mesh/grille part just pops right on.

    Re: The newbie guide to custom kick panels

    I must admit that I thought fiberglassing would be a lot tougher than it is...but your experience has made my life a lot easier...thank you for sharing your fiberbuild. I have build 4 sets of kickpods now for different cars and now I'm building my center console for my truck and it's gonna be sweet...I'll post pics when I'm done.
    Thank again Bro!

    Re: The newbie guide to custom kick panels

    and another Hoser to post I just did a set of kicks in a 65 Impala, man they looked good, I took the plastic kick panels out and built the pods right onto the panels, I gotta get some pics up, I havent had any problems other then abuse with using fleece, but what type of glue do you guys use for glueing down the vinyl because I have been having problems with the 3m glue releasing when it gets hot, I ordered some new glue from select Products that is supposed to be good for high heat, but it is kind of expensive,

    Re: The newbie guide to custom kick panels

    im getting ready to do some kicks for my car but i cant screw the driver side down. the fuse panel is right in the way. i was gonna build the kick over it anyway and just make it removable. how would i solidly mount it(idrive to fast for it to not be solid) but still have it removable?
