    Securing kickpanels

    Here is a newbie question for yall: Once I have constructed a kickpanel out of fiberglass, how do I secure the new panel to the pick-up??? New kick will house one of two RMB8's.


    I have:
    1983 Ranger Reg Cab
    Optima Blue Cap
    1.50 Farat Cap
    Kickers: RMB6 (Tweet), RMB8 (Mid), Comp VR 10" (Sub)
    Amps: Jensen 4ch 600w, Profile CL800
    Pioneer MP3 Head Unit
    Legacy 12 Band Eq

    Re: Securing kickpanels

    First: Dry wall screws?? Will they go through 20 ga steel plate?

    Second: Superglue?? I would like to be able to remove if damaged in any way.

    Third: Duct Tape?? Hey man I am not McQuyver.

    Thanks for the suggestions, I will concider them. A friend suggested that when I build the kick to find the original mounting points and design them into my kick.

    What do you think?

    Drywall screws will go through just fine. If at anytime it dont, pre-drill with a 1/8" bit.
