    new kick log.... **Pics**

    Started my new kickpanels last weekend and i'm hoping they will be done by this weekend. So I thought I'd put together a log

    Molds





    Passenger side kick





    Driver side kick








    And a chit ton more fiberglass supplies. I got taht gallon of resin for $26.99 :P!! Originally 44.99 but it was sitting on the shelf with the 26.99.

    The driver side looks kind of goofy but there is a reason for that (mainly i'm trying to maintain use of my e-brake. I only wrapped 1 side of the kick for now because i haven't decided what i'm going to do on the left side.

    Not too bad at all! Yeah the driver's side is a little weird but if it works who cares.


    What is going in them? The Ology's?

    I make rear-loaded, double crabshell, isobaric enclosures.

    Nah some infinity's for now.... the Ology's will be coming when dylan gets his production going.

    The drivers side will take a little more work than the passenger's side but it will be ok when I get done with it. I have to maintain the e-brake useability (sp?) so that dip in the drivers side is where its going to fit.

    More work later on tonight after class. maybe some sanding then glass!

    lol i was low on glue :P.

    Remember req you of all people should know fiberglass is ugly till its done. That wrinkle will be irrelevant anyway that's just gonna get bondo'd over. its seperate from the mid enclosure.

    lol im just saying, i NEVER had any problems fixing them

    i just peel back that spot, and pull it tighter and reglue it. i dunno, my stuff always looks nice until i put the first layer of glass on, and its usually gross lookin because of the color

    i didnt even sand my doorpods when i put my suede on, and they look smooth as hell. i dunno man. my **** always looks pretty nice all the way thru the project.

    lol well my sh*t just always looks ugly until it's done. Well actually my other kickpanels were just down right ugly. These one's will be given full care tho. I have every intention of doing these things the right way for a change :P.

    I got a couple layers of glass on the passenger side kick and got the driver's side sanded down. More pics after I get home from class. I got to hop in the shower and get rid of this d*mn fiberglass burn!

    Re: new kick log.... **Pics**

    good start man, I need to approach kicks eventually too. Gonna be hard because I have a clutch to deal with instead of the e-brake.




    Don't PM me, I'm not here. Find me on SSA or ROE
    No, I won't re-upload the Big3 pictures. Don't ask.
