    my kickpods in the making

    hello everybody. im new here and i thought id say hi. im 16 from sac cali and i like car audio and stuff. anyways i just started on some kicks the other day(first time glasser) and i thought there goin pretty dang well....but i want your opinion, right now im just doing passangers side since i have limited time(school and job) and well i dunno y else. check out the pictures there not step by step or anything but they give u an idear. lets see if i can show em



    me preping workspace and laying down a basecoat of resin



    starting glassing



    kick with fabric on and a layer of glass(skipped a few pictures)



    more pictures



    the starting of a tedious process called sanding! i will be covering the kicks in vinyl so they have to be pretty dang smooth. i am farther than this i however havent taken pictures past this point. ill hopefully get some up tommorow with the body filler on and the speaker in or something.
    tell me how it looks

    thanks for your time

    i hope you were wearing some gloves when you sanded that

    looking good. and just drip a good amount of resin on the inside and DONT BOTHER LAYING ANY GLASS OVER THE FLEECE!

    the kicks are way strong as it is, theres no need to lay any glass over the exterior - just put a nice coating of resin all on the inside, and it will be strong enough

    keep the pictures comming.

    That's completely dependent upon the thickness of the fleece and how saturated it is.

    2 showers.

    Hot one to open pours to allow grease, oils, and other things to flush out.
    Cold one to close pours.
