Default any intrest in custom door pannels

I was thinking about how bored I am and have no real projects of my own for a while I was thinking of making some fiberglass door pannels for a d21, taking a ton of pictures along the way and posting a "how to" thread. Hopefully there's someone here that would be willing to take the finished product off my hands to cover the cost of the materials.

I think you should do it and post everything and then put the set up for sale.
How good are you with fiberglass? Im sure we could teach a monkey to use the stuff but it might not look the best... Just sayin. I'd be interested as well if the finished panels look good!

I'd be interested, but I'd like to know the cost of materials, design, and color. All that good stuff lol.

I think that's a good response, so I'll go ahead and whip something up this weekend, and try to post up a decent "how to" while I'm watching the Rolex 24 this weekend.

I thought i would throw some pics up here. It's taking longer than a wanted to get thies made up, My saw and my favorite router bit failed and then just when I thought I had it licked, the new material i was working with turned out while being super easy to cut it's also completely staple proof. which required a material change. so here are some pics to get you guys excited.

I started with a D21 door I had laying around.


I broke the door down and removed the panel for molesting.


I cut the panel along an existing seam in the vynal.


This leaves the top 1/2 of the panel. original and the factory handles and window crank are retained.


Layed out the factory pannel as a template for the new panels.


well that's it for now, since my router bit failed


don't worry i'll post up a much better "HOW TO" when I have some of the finished product.

(edit: What size speakers are you guys most interested in fitting into the doors? 6x9, 6.5", 6.5" & 2"tweeter or dual 6.5's?? a 6.5/4"/2"3-way?)

I think 2 6.5 will look nice, sound good, and be easy to hook up. nice start

just be ready to cut a new hole in the door's sheetmetal if you go with 2- 6.5'2 in each door.
Are you planning on mounting the speakers through the door panel or solid mount the speakers to the door skin and finishing with the fiberglass panel?
