ok guys here it is, the write up of how I built my door panels.
I am installing 2 set of Hertz 3way components in the front doors and a set of 2way components in the rear doors.
so I have 2 6.5"mid bas drivers, 2 3" mid range, and 2 1" soft dome tweeters in each front door. my issue was trying to figure out placement of everything. I had originally wanted to take 1 3" and a tweeter and mold into the "A" pillars to bring up the sound stage, but once I had built the plate for them and test fitted. I didn't like how it was fitting so I decided on the mirror pillar on the door
the first step on the pillar was to build the mount for the 3" and tweeter. Using 1/2" mdf, a router, a couple hole saws this is what I came up with
with the shape decided on I had to put a ring around it for the grill. I used a low heat formable plastic cut at 7/8". 1/2" for the mount, 1/8" for the speaker ring thickness, and 1/4 " for the grill.
I stapled it around the mounting ring and this is what I had.
once that was done, I had to attach a bottom plate to the mirror pillar
in order to fiberglass to plastic and have it hold really well you will need to scuff up the plastic. all I did was take a die grinder and grind the mirror pillar.
once that is complete I added the mount ring to the mirror pillar.
now comes the fun part. wrapping it in fleece, yes sweat shirt material.
walmart or a fabric shop for that, just make sure it's really stretchy.
with that completed time to mix up some fiberglass resin. just brush it on, make sure you get it to soak all the way thru. I like to add fiberglass chop matt after I soak the fleece. while it's still wet lay 1 or 2 layers of the chop matt, wetting each layer before adding the next. give it time to fully dry and this is what you get.
once hardened, take your die grinder and clean up all of the edges and scuff it up all over to give body filler better adhesion'
now it's time for the body working. I like to use Rage Gold for the lite work, if needs more building up then I use DynaGlass.
I laid on a medium coat of the Rage Gold. I little tip, don't wait for it to fully harden before you start your sanding, I use 36 grit when it is still soft but not too soft. if it makes small rolls give it a minute or too. you want large pieces of dust. 36grit will take it down very quickly, Oh USE GLOVES!!! otherwise you will not have finger prints when you get done.
I will add more once I get the actual doors further along
