Default Fit of rage induces a project

As some of you know my front speakers made me angry recently, and i ripped my door panels off to check them out.. well while I had the panels off I noticed that I can take the part that covers the speaker off.. well I did this and put the speaker grill on my speaker, I plan to hook up some blue neon in there and have a cool look, thing is I'm not sure where to go from here. I'm considering going to a junk yard and getting this small part of the panel and cutting a hole in the middle so it looks a little cleaner.

Here is what the area originally looks like


This is without that piece


Speaker with grill before panels


Heres how the speaker looks with panels


Holding neon light up to it

Any thoughts or ideas?

Thats a great idea. It looks really cool. Would it be better if you used a flexible led strip and put it around the speaker?

I have some, and they do have wires. Im not sure if you can get them without. I can get a couple pictures of mine tomorrow for you, and if you want them, you can have them. I was originally gonna put all blue leds in my car, but I changed my plan to white, so I don't need them anymore.

I got mine from super bright LEDs, they have strip lighting that is essentially little LEDs stuck on paper = P.

They actually have like a clear rubber coating. They're waterproof. For the door, I think maybe using vinyl or fake leather, like the newer centuries have would look pretty cool.



The interior of my car is pretty close to the same color as yours, so it might be easy to get that material.

well there really isnt a match, I'm thinking my best bet is to go to a junkyard and just take those little speaker covers off another buicks panel and cutting a hole, its a plastic base that locks into the rest of the door.
