Fiberglass door panels w/speaker holes

Recommended Posts

It is for the door backing only. Think of it as a replacement for the cardboard part of the door panel. You will still have to finish off the door panel with whatever you want (leather, vinyl, cloth, etc).

 

The picture I linked to is just a representation of what your finished product could look like. Obviously, you will have to supply your own speaker as well.

Ok I got an email from Pete today. He said the panels I sent him where "hammered beyond belief!". That really let the air out of my sail until he said he thinks he can still get a good mold out of them. He said it might take a little longer than he expected but ddn't say what that meant. I asked for a ETA so we will see waht he come back with.

Well the panels were in fact "Hammered beyond all belief" but with a little work I'm pretty confident I'll be able to pull a good mold. I managed to get there seams back together (they were in fact in two halves) glue and screw em to another board and shim the edges and corners... to get em straight and as stiff as possible.

 

So .... so far so good. I'll post a few pics tommorrow although it wont be much to look at.

Okay couple of things: Ive made a bit of progress... pics attached. Those panels that were donated (although a great starting platfrorm) were hammered! I bondo'ed and sanded and bondo'ed and sanded and WOW!!!! finally got em to a point where they are almost perfect. I go back and fourth with more bondo and more sanding and for petes sake good enough there door panels!!!

 

Any hoots here are a few pics made good progress, got em pretty smooth but honestly Im not totally happy with the results. Im feelin like more bondo and more sanding. who knows!

 

Panel attachment: I found a great source for push pins to attach the panels, Ill post his info tommorrow ...cuz I left it in my office by accident.

Okie dokie folks, I got the plug for the factory flat panels done, just have to let em breathe a bit (gas off) wet sand, polish, seal, wax wax wax and wax before I start the mold then its on to the panels with speaker provisions. Which is similar to the process above only I'll have a much better platform to start with.

 

Any hoot I know How we all like pics ...

Okay.....

 

Got the plug all sanded, sealed and waxed and polished. Gonna try to lay up some glass tommorrow or the next day, let the mold cure and cool and then start a run of the factory panels. Sometime next week Ill start the panels with the 6.5 speaker provisions.

 

So far so good!
