    Question fiberglassing

    Hey Guys

    I have been installing systems for myself, buddies and girlfriends for probably 15 years now, but it has always been speakers in factory locations, I design and fabricate a sub box build it out of 3/4" MDF, carpet it and use the leftover wood to fabricate a desent looking install of Amps and ect.

    I am ready to move to the next level I would like to start making fiberglass kickpanels, and ather install designs with fiberglass.

    Is there some Videos, or books with lots of pictures lol, to give me a good understanding?

    What materials are needed besides the obvious, and what are they used for?

    Thanks for any help
    Thanks

    Great looking glass job HSprite.
    And the cool thing is the Polk Grilles match the Z's wheels almost perfectly.

    I think I like it the way it is, plus, I want some seat time to enjoy it. I am sick of working on the box, I want to listen to it for a while.
