Well, this is my first attempt at fiberglassing. I am fiberglassing my door panels. Smoothing out the seams, filling in the lower pocket and mounting speaker/tweeter pods.   Let me know what you think.
The speaker & tweeter pod.

I use the original screw holes that attached the door panel to the door. I also added 3 brackets on the right side of the last pic (they will be painted black so they won't really be seen.

Looks good so far! Will you be painting it, or wrapping it?

The panel as you see it there will be painted glossy black to match the rest of the interior. There is an insert that goes on the upper part of the door panel which will be wraped in black mole skin, as well as the door handle.

I have Ininifty Kappas 60.5cs (6.5") speakers w/ tweeters. There is a crossover that I currently have under my seat, and it will most likely stay there. I've seen sopme people put them in the doors, but I don't really like that. I'd rather hide them.

looks good man, I want to do the same thing to my car, I have 4 door panels though and they r plane so Imma redesign em with 2 6.5's up front and a tweeter and 1 6.5 in bak with a tweeter(each door).  Its looking real nice, but I had a question, prolly a stupid question but w/e Imma ask anyway.  After you finish glassing and cut out the hole for your speaker do you remove the wooden dowels or just leave them in place???  Well keep up the good work and keep us posted with the progress!!!!

One_Dieu: Thanks. I'll have more pics up after this weekend.
mustangfoo: Most people remove them. Since I used plastic rings instead of wooden ones, I might keep them there for extra support(since unlike wood the resin won't soak into the plastic).
