That looks like it's going to slam! Can't wait to see it done

No turning back now. First time ever doing this. To be honest about it I'm pretty nervous about how it'll turn out.  Got it all laid out for the first door. Everything has just enough room to mount  

I finally got to start on the enclosure.  8 sheets of 3/4" mdf.  The large panels were cut with skill saw and a guide.

Are you going to wrap fabric around that and then staple it and the cut the speaker holes and then fiber glass it, sand it, body fill it, sand it and then prime it, sand it again and the paint and clear coat?

I am going to wrap fabric. Then use fiberglass cloth in top. Then the other stuff minus paint. To be honest I am not sure if I'm going to paint it or vinyl it yet. I got to first see if I have vinyl that would work. The only reason I'm not sure on the painting. I don't want a shiny finish on it. Even the matt finish paints seem to be too shiny to me. 

If I can get it smooth enough vinyl would be best imo. But this is the first time doing this stuff so jury is out on it. Still learning as I go lol

It’s easier to just vinyl it or carpet after you fiberglass it. No prep work, just sand it and vinyl it or carpet it. That’s what’s up dude. I can’t wait to see it.

Will have just enough room for the vinyl before rubbing.20201018_174438.thumb.jpg.a3b87f30a4318dfe198d40c794b6b664.jpgI think they turned out pretty decent for the first time. Still has some minor blemishes. I wanted perfect surface but just couldn't get it right now.

I am sick of sanding lol

Yo, those are nice. And imperfections aren’t bad because carpet or vinyl fixes that. But honestly, them pods and dsp holder look good. I would finish prepping them and scuff them with fine grit sandpaper and paint them flat black with some trusto rusto spray paint.

Thank you. 

The pods will be covered to match the door main color. The dsp and bass knob I might do the black paint. I wanted to repaint the entire center console another color besides that khaki or grey color it is. But we will see lol

Vinyl and fabric paint. From what I see, you would do good with whatever you decided to do. Nice build!
