    Work Log Continued: LMS5400+Sundown3000D

    Old Thread: http://www.caraudio.com/forum/showth...=246233&page=1

    Currently messing with the tweeter pods untill I get some necessary tools/money/supplies.



    Using wood filler/glue molded the tweeter on the old factory sails.




    Test fit:





    Stretched fleece/a dress sock over the sail, used paper clips to pull the fleece in the hole.




    Applied resin:

    After more sanding primer coats, and some carving so the tweeter can fit:









    Pretty much all that is left with those is primer sand the other one, and a few more coats on each till the holes are filled, then paint and wetsand smooth.

    install coming along very nicely, congrats
    sick system too

    my suggestions:
    1st tweeter still needs some filling and smooting out
    glazzing puddy for that works the best for me

    Yeah they both need work, I just got my car back from the repair shop, and they stole my money, so I'll be a lil while before I can get the rest of the equipment.

    I don't think I mentioned I'm also switching from passive to active crossovers. And in the future considering another set of components.

    Glazing putty is the way to go.You'll be forever trying to get the primer to fill all those holes.It drys pretty quick and can be sanded and primed in about 20 min.Then I use a primer sealer just to be safe.Lookin good though.
