Well, this is my first attempt to fiberglass, and doing something like this period. I was unsure how it was going to turn out, but it actually turned out better than I expected. It's probably not professional standards but my first time, and first approach on fiberglassing. I plan on putting 2 6.5 components on each door. Well enough with the talk here are the pics. Hope you guys like it! :D

started out with this...


and then...

The only thing that I think you need to do different when you glass my doors ;) is to add the courtesy light on the bottom of the door like on the earlier generations.

After your door mods, what are you thinking of doing next?

lol a courtesy light would be a nice addition, well after my doors are finished, I will be working on a custom enclosure for my 15 FI SSD sub.

Yea, the whole door idea looks kool, but th Hifonics speakers are garbage. Good brand speakers that would sound better... A LOT bette rwould be the Alpine SPX-13PRO. I am an installation technician for Car Audio... I can tell you anything that u would like to know about them and HiFonics isnt too good of a brand... somewhat powerful and cheap but not good durability or sound quality... go with alpine, kicker or mtx. but i will tell you what, the idea and the execution of the door idea is insane man. i love the design and the bubble of the one speaker on each door.
