So I wasn't happy with my Kicker components or where my last door panel project was going. SO decided to start over.
I got some Rockfordfosgate Punch162s components today so I decided to start out by flushing the tweeters in the doors. I also picked up some 1/4th mdf for my base on my fiberglass pods for the 6 and a half.

Left door with tweeters flushed.
First time wrapping a door panel. creases up in the front by the tweeter because of the curve.

I got the base's cut and the mounting rings cut tonight but no pics. I'll have them up tomorrow when I build the inserts and decide whether the crossover will be visible or hidden behind the door.

Ya I posted the last set I made over on FGF. I got the material from my local fabric store. Suede cloth, one side suede the other side a cotton composite, like 6 a yard or something like that. I got the driver side 6.5 pod made and wrapped in cloth for fiberglass BUT I seem to have misplaced my MEKP hardener for it. =[ off to home depot.

Screwed down to a 2x4 so it doesn't warp.

So I got the second layer on the right panel, so all glassing is done. I started body filling and then I come to find I only have one sheet of 36 left and nothing up untill 150 grit. Back to home depot...again... Hopefully the left door will be close to being done by tonight...and then the right door tomorrow before I go to work. Pics later.

Just some pics of progress...nothing special. Two layers of body filler down, all thats left on driver side pod are pin holes around the speaker ring, body fill the length, and finish sand.

I already have the other on glassed and everything...just needs body filling.
I just cut my mounting posts the same length, and eyeballed it.
I havn't really come up with a plan for making things symmetrical yet =/

updates tonight. I'm heading out to my shop now to get to work.
