    Fvck MDF



    Seriously, I hate this shit. Had to make the adapter out in the cold cause my step dad bitched at me cause I make "too much dust" when I work in the cellar. Spent close to an hour moving everything to the garage and jerry rig'd some bs work station to cut it out. Finally get it installed and not 5 minutes later the whole **** thing just splits. Oh, and then I got pissed and got back in my car only to run over my door panel I had lying on the ground

    next time use pine plywood it's cheaper and wouldn't split.

    with something as small as that in a daily driver what ever is laying around is fine. just need to make sure you seal it this time or it will get moldy.

    I normally use MDF with washers and did so on my most recent build, but I will probably give birch a try next go around.

    Times 2, guys in the shop are turning to birch, a little more money but deff tuff and better than standard plywood. It does look like you countersunk it a bit much though.

    for an enclosure use birch, for an adapter in a non sq car use what ever you have. In a sq car don't use wood at all.

    Re: Fvck MDF

    The problem is the screw I am using is so short I need to countersink about 3/8" - 1/2" for it to attach tightly to the door itself. I'll make an adapter using some of that ply and coat it in some paint or something to seal it up

    My pathfinder is not geared towards sq...the mids cost me $70 as a whole. If I wanted SQ I would have gotten a car not an SUV

    Right on. Use epoxy, that will also strengthen it.

    Don't have any here, wish the screw was longer though I wouldn't have this problem in the first place

    That was my problem as well. No way in hell would the screws I had available fit through the MDF and the door, so instead of counter sinking I routed out notches on the tabs and used washers behind the bolts. I plati-dipped the FUCK out of the baffles to keep them from getting wet and splitting.

    Re: Fvck MDF

    Cool idea, unfortunately I don't have a router. If I had a router I wouldn't be remaking my adapter in the first place (I made a new one because the mounting hole on my old one was too large. I cut them out with a jigsaw late at night and I wasn't being very accurate)
