Worked on the ring where the speaker goes in, more smooth now.

Step by step, till it workes out to something he likes;

On picture, maybe it doesn't look so good, but IRL it looks fine. The forms i made also come back in the original panel. So it's more styled this way.

Here a couple of pics of the original doorpanel, to compare more easy.

And this is what it's going to be. The door, on the speaker, gained 2cm more to the inside of the car. This is what I had to do to get the speaker in there in a good way.

The seperate polyester cap, that goes over the speaker, will come in silver, like the trim.

This will contrast with the rest.

If I look at this all, I think it doesn't contrast to much with the lines, shape of the original panel.

Has to be rubbed and finished some more.

On the backside of the panel, maybe there will come a little light, that shines when the door is opened. Partially to fill up the big piece.

A plexi insert with some graphpics would look nice. That will ad some contrast and fill large area.

In the meanwhile I made a whole into the doors platework, behind the speaker.

You can see the windowglider. Just nog touching the speaker.

Made some more parts, to fill up the other wholes.

On the background, there's a alu plate of 4mm thick. Very hard and strong.

In the middle you can see 2 Carbonkevlar parts. I made em as thin als possible .
On the foreground you see 4 little rings I made, to screw the doorpanel extra tight.

If you look to the second on the right, there's a little rubber he pasted on. On the place where he screwed it. This to prevent resonance.

On the picture you see a little pole picking out. That's MEGA IMPORTANT.

Behind the speaker, there'll be another screw, so we can attach it even more in the middle.

This won't be the end of the door. I has to make some tiny wholes airtight, but that won't go untill the has all the material to fill up the sound.
All I makes, will be filled up with this material. What exactly I going to use, he's not sure. we'ill keep u informed.

As you can see, I putting a lot of work into all this. And more work is coming up so the sound won't be lost...

I think this is a type of work, that is underestimated be many people. But the work will pay of in the end, that's what we are sure of...
