    Megalo's 1st fiberglass project, kickpanels(worklog)

    After i had built my carputer decided to stage my mids. AA Poly Mids 6.5.



    Flushmount baffles were made by ~Magick Man~ from caraudio.com




    I know i look like Kal Penn...



    WD40...a trick i learned if you get resin on carpet,you sparay it so it doesnt cure and then wipe it off

    keep an eye on things while im at the computer...wireless camera FTW

    This scared me, you dont know what happend, after i took the pic i applied another layer of chop matte and resin it started smoking, i guess i had to much hardener i thought my car was about to ignite!



    My parents have a tendancy to walk bare fotted outside...had to stop that

    Baby poweder helps..so the glass doesnt stick to you and make you itchy..5% tint acts like a mirror lol

    They sound great sounds way better than freeairing. running off hu right now hope to get a NINe4 soon.
    hopefully start tweeter pods next week for my pillars. these will be huge look at the tweeter size

    not bad for the first timer, but i would recommend a real respirator, otherwise you will have erection problems in the future, even if you work outside.

    wear longsleeve clothes, if your skin is irritant it will pay toll.

    WD40 idea is pretty neat,

    not sure if positioning is good, i would hate to see speaker damaged

    i wont ever kick my spkers but if the guy next to me does...its on...

    and my neighbor uses fiberglass for his boat he came up to me and told me that next time i should where nylon stocking so if it sticks it will only stick to the fabric and not me. but that babypowder worked well, i had to reapply a couple times

    you can get away with regular 3M respirator only $25.00 in home depot/lowes

    baby powder is the ****!!!!
    , when sanding googles are also recommended

    sanding is recommended, since resin extracts oils when it cures, if you don't sand it it will not adhere properly,

    With the pod there right next to brake pedal, there is not much space for your left leg IMO

    i am butchering my door instead

    i am not that tall so it doesnt bother me to much where its at.

    i guess i'll sand a little bit, i have the 3m heavy duty adhesion spray....
    i didnt want to butcher my door on my 1st time messing with fiberglass
