Default Phase 3 of NEW Fiberglass Door Pods Completed PICS

Ok here is the last set of pics from the fabrication part of these door pods for anyone following it.

A ton of thanks go to Steve, Dave, And Mike at Empire Audio for allowing me to do all my work in there shop. They granted me access to anything I needed including themselves if I had a question before diving in.. I owe them more than gratitude.

Anyways the resin part wasnt to difficult nor was the sanding part. Its the waiting part. The boringness of it LOL.

After sanding down smooth Dave presented a idea to me, since every other piece of plastic in my car is textured he said why not go with a textured finish to make it appear more stock.. I agreed plus I didnt need to save to have them professionally painted which was a plus.

He had a textured paint not fleckstone but sorta like it just not as clumpy. Which when applied to a scrap piece matched the cars textured plastic perfectly. Tommorrow will end Day 3 of of this Phase with the final product being installed.

I can not wait, and def learned alot these last 2 days.

Very nice fabrication! I'm still not sure if I like the "shelf" that the window/lock switch mounts to but maybe I just need to get used to it. I would definately miss the drink holder though.

You do great work.

Looks great. It looks like your right on in the quality department, but they could integrate into the car a little better. Maybe that will change when they are actually on the door panels though, you never know

Looking good....I'd be afraid to let you and Randman in the same room for too long.
