Mustang

This customer wanted a full custom job. We gave it to him. I started out by creating some fiberglass molds of his kick panel. I sprayed some foil with contact cement and placed it over the kick panel. The foil prevents any of the fiberglass resin from getting on the body of the car. I used some trunk liner to mold kick panel. I soaked it with fiberglass resin to create the base of the mold. Once it was hardened, I had a solid mold of the kick panel. I setup a small frame for the speakers out of mdf. I attached the frame with some 18guage braids. Then I spread some elastic material over the hardened mold and attached it with some staples. This gave me a good idea of how the final mold would look. Once I adjusted the frames for the speakers to the right position, I applied a thin layer of fiberglass resin over the stretchy material. After it was hardened, I applied another layer of fiberglass resin with fiberglass cloth. After the fiberglass cloth was applied, I sanded down the rough edges. I then used bondo to fill in any air pockets and sanded it once again. The customer chose to use a vinyl similar to his interior for this job. I used a black vinyl backed with a thin layer of batting. I made sure to heat the vinyl before stretching it around the kick panel mold. I applied the vinyl with contact cement and screwed them into place. Once they were mounted to the kick panel I installed the speakers. During the fiberglass kick panel build, we dynamatted to the entire body and trunk of the car. I also built a panel for the rear speakers in the rear window area. We used the same vinyl as the kick panels. Once it was built, I installed the speakers and began wiring the amp. The amp was housed in a black carpeted panel that was mounted behind the rear seat. I built the trunk out to match the black carpeted sub-woofer box containing one 12" sub-woofer. I was not able to get a really good job of the trunk because it was entirely black carpet. Once the job was done, the car looked great but sounded better.
