    Got Wood? New Door Pod Pics

    I was sick of the butchered look of my door panels. Had a hole from my old JBL comps, one poly mid stuffed behind the stock grill, once shoehorned into the map pocket, etc... Looked like total ***.

    Here's the befor pic I post last week when I did some carpet work to clean it up a little. But that didn't last long. My car has the fake woodgrain around the stereo, AC controls, etc... and I don't mind it, so I decided to build something off of that look.

    Re: Got Wood? New Door Pod Pics

    I didn't bother doing a build log as I figured everyone on here will hate it, so I've only got a few finished pics.

    Took a decent amount of fabrication/customizing to get it tight against the contours of the door panel, but the effor was worth it.

    Built it all with stuff I had laying around, so $0 investment and about 20 hours time all together. Driver's side "pod" will go on tomorrow when the poly is dry.

    Re: Got Wood? New Door Pod Pics

    I made PVC angle mounts for the tweeters but they weren't angled enough now that the surface is flat compared to the stock pane. I had painted them the same color as the AA logo, but used these carpeted ones since they put the tweeters more on axis.

    I'm still thinking of a better mount set up to get them right on axis again as the XT25's really need it.

    One more shot of the mahogany stain. Actually matches the fake plastic dash crap pretty well...
