Has anybody out there ever tried to make custom door panels? If so how hard was it and do you have any pics?? I have been thinking about it probably wont unless I can come up with a sweet design.

I was having a think about the door panels on my primera...... my model isnt top of the range so the fabric on the panel is a bit "old person" ish..... I was thinking about buying some carbon fibre sheet (the stuff you heat up to mold it around shapes) and see if this would stick to the existing fabric ok.... it should do as its fairly solid......

If I pluck up the courage to do it I'll post pictures.

Other than that I guess that fibreglass is always an option..........although not for me as I've never even used the stuff before :)

all these mods people are doing is begging for someone to start producing them and open a G20/Primera Modding Company!!

oh fiberglass is fun to work with, just make sure you wear gloves or something, the only hard part was getting it off of my hands ( i neglected to wear my gloves the 2nd time around fiberglassing the top part of the kickpanels i built, oh well..

I'm working on some right now so I can fit my 7" midbass drivers in the doors of my p10. I'm just about done with my custom kickpanels to hold the 5.25's and tweets. I'm still questioning my door design. I was planning to cut out the main speaker pod and keep the plastic pocket that i keep all my junk and loose cd's in. But now that I think about it all that junk is going to rattle like crazy once I put 100RMS to each of those midbasses. How do you post pics on this forum?

You know there is a place where you can order custom door panels. pretty much they look like the 2002 sports package ones but you can put your own name on them and stuff and you can have them illuminate. I think they run around a hundred bucks a pair....and around 150 for all four...I'll try to find the website.

so yo, my question.. how hard was it with setting the tweeters and woofer up, like iuse sticks of wood and hot glue to mount the rings for my speakers, this was actually my first try and stuff.. so im looking for a way to improve the next ones, i have quarts and theyre supposed to be in a non sealed enclosure, so these were actually sealed, i just drilled a hole in the back.. im assuming its sufficient..but it still sounds extrememly tight and does have some bass, well whatever goes down to 60hz

Bump


Anybody ever replaced the fabric in the door panels? I don't particularly like the look of my tan fabric on the doors, and I'm thinking about covering them with some fabric from a fabric store for a custom look...

I'd like to see those pictures... I'm tired of the tan cloth, and I'm going to systematically get rid of it

Edit: This guy has done some LV interior work which is not exactly what I'm looking for in terms of fabric choice but proves at least that it can/has be/en done.
