    Teh Teebone door pod worklog

    ok i'm starting this cause i have ****ed up all my other pods. what i'm gonna do is go step by step and post pics along the way. please comment if you see something getting ****ed. i got this technique from req so i assume he knows what he is doing anyways pic 1



    already had the hole cut out and mounted a board in the door so the pod will have something to mount too. taped around the opening and i'll put aluminum foil in the hole and around the edges, using hot glue to adhere it to the tape.

    Re: Teh Teebone door pod worklog

    I did some doorpods myself last weekend using (pretty much) the same steps as Req. Worked fairly well for me, but I dont like how big the bastards came out so I'll be redoing them this week/weekend. Couple pieces of advice...

    Take your time and get your bracing that holds the doorpod to the panel nice and strong. I was going a bit to fast and had a hell of time un-screwing myself. Also, I would recommend that you cover your bolts with some tape when you start to fiberglass the base mould. Fiberglass in the threads = a serious pain to work with.

    I dont know what your panels looked like before you cut them out, but mine (F150
    ) actually round down a bit. When I fiberglassed the bases I got some of it under the lip which made it kind of hard to get out once it had cured. Either cut your panels so they are flush, or be careful when you are glassing the little gap between your wood and panel.

    Last thing... When you go to screw down your wood to the door (the step before you apply the resin) don't tighten it all the way. By leaving it a bit loose during the glassing then tightening it down once it is dry will REALLY help you to get a nice, flush fit of the pod to the door.

    And yes, hot glue is hot. I've got a couple blisters to back me up.

    Re: Teh Teebone door pod worklog

    i think one of my problems was that i didn't have the material stretched tight enough behind the wood mount, so i used some claps to hold the fleece tight. didn't have enough claps so i improvised and used jumper cables



    then i measured to make sure the piece was in the center and hot glued it down.

    Re: Teh Teebone door pod worklog

    well this where i think i ****ed the last pod. i **** at stretching the material. i had to make a relief cut. i could not for the life of me do it without cutting. i'm sure with some sanding and bondo i can smooth out where i had to piece it together. it's not perfect but this looks a lot better then my first pod so far



    now with the excess cut away



    now what i think i'm gonna do is lay down 2 coats of resin and let it dry, and take the mold out of the car. down it in the corners it is really hard to get at so it'll be easier to apply the mat when it's out of the door.

    iceteebone's words of wisdom: don't lie on your back underneath where you are putting on hot glue.

    Re: Teh Teebone door pod worklog

    in case someone is actually trying to gather something from this, here is another tip. i cut out a piece of the material on the back where i drilled, to attach the back of the pod to the door. that way the screw doesn't grab the material and tear the **** out of it

    Re: Teh Teebone door pod worklog

    lookin good so far. honstly just resin on both sides of the fleece should be enough strength, but one or two coats of glass wont hurt while you are doing it eaither

    im glad this is working so well for you.

    did you use aluminum + rivets for the back there?

    there was a huge hole but i actually put a piece of wood back there and screwed it to door skin and the i mount the pod to the piece of wood. it's pretty sturdy.

    Re: Teh Teebone door pod worklog

    now for the resin. i set up my work area using a pair of jack stands and a piece of plywood. it akes it easy when everything is right next to the work area.



    now i applied the resin. went pretty heavy like i was busting a nut on my ex-girlfriends face



    now i'll let that dry. it gets dark at 9 here so i'll pop that out and continue work in the garage. until then i'll bs with teh thread whores

    iceteebone's words of wisdom: when doing work on the door, and having it open for an extended period of time, good idea to disconnect the battery
