    Icon32 Fiberglass screws and glue questions!!!

    Ok so I finally got my fiber glassed lower pods for my doors done and now I need to mount them to the door. What glue and screws are best to use with fiberglass. Screws will not be going into metal just the glassed pods and the stock interior panel?? Also what screws do yall use to install speakers into fiberglass? Just regular coarse drywall screws??

    unless you have some amazing glass skills you won't have a nice flat surface to mount the speakers to without using wood, nor will there be any easy way to mount the speakers. you would have to use a good thick foam as a gasket, then use bolts to hold it in place. that means you have to cut the back of the pod open so you can tighten the bolts down.

    i use t-nuts in every glass build. safe, secure and easy to use.



    to attach them to a panel i use bolts w/ lock washers.
