    Custom Kickpanel help...

    So I am going to be taking some factory kickpanels and I want to fiberglass them to hold a 5.25" mid range and tweeter. but not sure where to start.... I have seen tutorials but that is always starting from nothing.

    anyone done this before that could lend some tips. thanks.

    Well my brother if you wait a day or two you will be in luck. I have got mine started and to the point of aiming currently. I'm gonna snap some pics this weekend. And give an idea of how I got to where I'm at

    basically take your factory kicks and attach your mdf baffle which will house your speaker and tweeter, attach it to the factory kickpanel in a way that it will be properly angled or imaged, attach it with wood stilts (dowels, 2x4, etc) wrap in fleece, resin, sand, prime, paint, install
