Thank you everybody for the complements.
<BLOCKQUOTE>quote:</font><HR> Looks good man. Mind giving any details on how they're constructed? I've been considering doing something like this for a while but wondered if it would be worth the time.
Ohh this definitely worth the time!!! I can hear a lot of difference, the whole front stage is higher and more balanced, meaning there is a wide "sweet" spot from left to right. Also I don't know how to justify this but the same speakers sound clearer.
As for construction. I really didn't know how it would look at the end, so I began with making the baffles out of mdf using router. Then I put the speakers in the baffles and started to align them, once that was done I stapled the sweatshirt material to it, to be fiber-glassed. Basically I ended up trimming most of the material away. As you can see in the pictures, there isn't too much stuff around the baffles. I taped out the corners with body-shop tape (no sticking) placed the kiks as I wanted, and began to saturate the cloth. It really wasn’t pretty at the end. I am missing a picture here, but in the first picture you can see how much bondo I have on it. This is the hardest part of the project. You got to get it to shape, so there was a lot of fitting and sending. All together it took me 2 days to make these; it should’ve been faster than that.
One cool thing that I recommend is to take advantage of the plastic trim panel that goes on the bottom of the door and rises to the pillar. This is where the original panel would mount. Basically there are clips on the back of it. So what I did is I took my half-ready right kick panel and made fiberglass attachment that snaps on these clips. You can see this in the picture 3 on the left. This solved my mounting problem, well it just made it easier mo mount this side.
<BLOCKQUOTE>quote:</font><HR> C. I trimmed off the hood release handle recess on the driver side. The handle will be moved up into the dash and a new pull cable will tie the two together(not done yet).
It seemed to me that I could of relocated the hood release lever to the bar that is under the dash, I tried it and the cable was long enough, it would be like moving this lever (going up and taking a right). After I played with it I realized there was no need at all to do so.
D. I cut the passenger side rocker sill plastic at the kick panel down to the same width as it is on the floor of the car. This will allow me to make the entire kick panel as one piece and opens up options for tweeter placment(seperates).
Long post... just some thoughts
Now, I like this idea. I thought of something like that, but that would of being much more work. It would look cool with chrome door steps.
