That looks perfect!  Do the female ends get glued into the receiving panel or is there a mechanical fastener (or both)?

Just glue. Same with the male ends. I'm just going to drill a hole, and add that gorilla glue!

Man, no idea how I missed this update, that's looking good brother!  I don't remember if you mentioned - what color are you going to paint them?  

Black. I'm planning 1 coat of primer, 2 coats of rustolium gloss black, then 2 coats of rustolium gloss clear coat. Same for the speaker baffles themselves.

A thought on forming them (or rather a youtube link) that may or may not be worth considering:

 

 

He's using a press, but he mentions using your car to press form the mesh as well.  Might be worth thinking about.

Yeah, I've watched that video. I don't think I have the tools, or the skills to make the moldings correctly. That's the only reason I didn't go that route. So just some good old fashioned brute force it is. I've only had time to do 1 so far. It turned out OK for only being a third of the way done.

If you do, some videos I watched to help me with figuring out my process are CAF fabricating fiberglass door panels- Exo making door speaker pods from 8 years ago- and soundman bass van vlog. He spends almost a whole 2 years on his doors lol. 

Ain't nothin to it but to do it brother!

Everything Soundman does takes at least 2 years, but you have to admit that when he's done, it's pretty over the top!

It took for ever, but I really liked the way the T-Bird came out.  I like the way the retro bandpass box with 2 Extasy subs in his kids car as well...

I bet it sounds pretty damned good and I'm sure it's going to look great too!

I didn't see that particular box, but I've seen s couple of his other ones. I'm not a huge fan of the PVC external ports he seems to like to do. Esthetically anyways. But I'm sure they work well.

I'm now afraid that the metal grills will resonate with certain frequencies.... I'm probably worrying too much
