  • Repair thoughts: plastic slots on speaker grill

    Ok, so I cut up my kick panels to modify them (cut the center out, spaced it off the rest of the panel and used fiberglass/fiberglass filler to make the new shape) to make room for the extra travel of the 6.5" subs I put in place of the 5.25" woofers.

    Anyway, long story short, I had the grills taped off but accidentally went over it with my orbital sander and went through to the plastic. Here's the damage:

    I know it's a rough picture, but basically, I dug down into a couple of the raised slats between the slots that allow sound through. Anyone have a good idea of how to build this shape back up and what product to use?

    You could use Dynatron (Bumper repair epoxy) to repair the damage and then shape it using a dremel (or a similar small rotary tool) with a sanding bit attached.
