I will be watching this thread closely. :) Hope for lots of pics and info to help my project go better. For now are you just doing a surface mold? It's kinda hard to tell from the pic with the resin on. It looks like with a complete mold you would not be able to get the originals out. And how hard was it to get the fiberglass cloth to conform to all the curves? I was going to use chop mat for mine.

Yup what he said. If the speakers are just flat mounted in the doors you are firing the sound at the knees or legs of the driver and passenger. That will not create as nice of a sound stage as kickpanels which are directional. If you look at the kickpanel design the they are kinda angled toward the driver and passenger seats.

kick panels allow you to run a midrange and a tweet, without chopping up your doors. The sound coming out of your speakers reflects off the cars interior, having speakers in the kicks will sound just the same, if not better than having them in the door
