    Door panels ---- 8's and tweeters

    Basic 85 Monte Carlo door panel.
    No pics of the rings and base down.
    I can just tell you this.....1/4" hardboad the length of the door, rings raised up and angled. Stretched with polydex material and staple and CA glued in place.


    Then resined.........

    the sweetness of that cheap price!

    Re: Door panels ---- 8's and tweeters

    Do you think that it will hold in the mid over the long term? I glassed a ring to the back of a door panel and there was some controvery on whether it would stay for the long tern (opening/closing)

    It's already down there but is there any type of product I could add over it to further strengthen it?

    I don't use fiberglass on the panels themselves.
    I had a wood base secured to the panel and the material stapled to that.
    In places that I had to secure the material to the door and the staples wouldn't work, I use CA glue. It will not release when the fiberglass resin starts to cure like other glues will.


    Now to directly answer your question, if you have a ring and you want to mount it to the door and mold that in, I would use a liquid plastic/urethane.
    I use SEM 40507 1 minute set liquid plastic. It requires a specail applicator gun though.

    Monday I should be using this to do two 7" drivers in a door next week. I'll take pics and make a thread.
