Kick panel fabrication beginning on the driver's side. Here you see me brushing resin onto the fibreglass cloth to get the mold started. Note - large c... Show morehunks of cloth are used first to get the shape and then smaller pieces are used to add thickness and strength.
This is what the kick panel mold looks like after it is taken out of the car.
Similar pic to the last one except I placed the baffle on the mold to get an idea of what shape/size to cut it.
This pic shows you the mold with the baffle removed and you can see the shape that the mold will be cut to using a jig saw.
The baffle and mold are attached together in this pic by the use of wooden dowel and liberal amounts of hot glue. It looks like I forgot to take the tweeter out after aiming the baffle before I took this picture, oh well.
Here is a pic of the kickpanel wrapped with a t-shirt and a coat of resin on it. Once the resin hardned, I cut out the holes with an exacto knife then added a few layers of fibreglass cloth to the sides to strengthen it up.
The result of MANY hours of body filling/sanding/priming/painting later, here it is all ready to be put in the car.
Finished & installed. Show Less
Here's the box that my PG XS2200 came in with the actual tested output of the amp posted on the side. I wasn't expecting 263 watts out of a 200 watt... Show more amplifier at all, but this just shows that PG doesn't screw around with amp ratings.
Well, that's all I've got for now probably until next summer when it warms up and the snow goes away and I can get some more work done on my car. I hope you have enjoyed my car/install!
