It is always nice to see someone doing their own custom projects.

Nice work. Great progress pictures. Keep them coming!

Default update drivers side

update on drivers side, i kept track of time ,
up to last pic i have about 4 hours with out drying time, into the panel,
and i tried using a thinnier stretchy matireal over the purple fleece blanket i used for the passenger side, it was way to thin,, so in the middle would have been better,
i used a roller to wet out the fabric , and last tiem i had soem issues with the fiber glass not staying in place and takeing for ever uising a 2 inch chip brush,,
so i tacked down all the fiber glass first then wet it out with the 3 inch roller, man much bettter, and quicker to fiber glass this time,

pics show a lot worse than in person on this set for soem reason,

used the scraps on the rear side for a bit more sound deading,, and paineted it silver to lock up the fiberglass,




with or with out grills on the 5 inch mids, what do you think will look better, ??

got some 3 color grey pipping im doing around the door latch, and doing a bungie cord net on the rear botttom for holding stuff, and cumurau (brazillian teak) for the door handles,

Yep.

Out of all the aftermarket stereos I've bought in the last ten years, I really like the Kenwood I put in my daughter's Corolla the best.

I also bought one similar to yours. It was a Soundstream VR750NB. My son has had it for two years and it seems to have held up fine. Here a link:

PS: I love those door speakers you fixed up.
