Here are the new pods I made out of 1/4 inch MDF. These were a lot easier to make than the fiberglass pods but they won't be sealed. I might make them again out of fiberglass if I'm not happy with how they sound.

I applied some Rage Gold body filler, then after sanding I'll spray on an adhesion promotor, primer, black acrylic paint, and the clear coat. If I get pinholes after sanding I'll use some Rage Xtreme that should get rid of the pinholes.

I did some sanding today,... ended up with a lot of pinholes so I'll put on some Rage Xtreme over this and sand again.

I saw some Lubro-Moly in the background of one of your pictures, so now I KNOW you're high-class.

Looks like fun!

That is some great stuff isn't it? It's the only one I've been able to actually notice a difference in from other oils.

Sanded down the Rage Xtreme with 80 grit, need to sand it down with a few higher grits then on to priming.

Thanks Randy, I took my time sanding the Rage Xtreme and Duplicolor Primer I used on this. It was my first time using these products and never painted anything that had to look as good as a car's paint so I took it slow. Just in case anyone wanted to know I dry sanded the Rage with 40, 80, 120, and 220 or something close to that. Then for the primer I used black Duplicolor sandable primer with 600 grit wet, then white primer and over that black SEM Guide Coat and 600 grit wet. The guide coat really helps you get the surface level. Then the base and clear will follow.

Here you go, I wet sanded the clear with 600, 1000, 1500, and then used my metabo with menzerna power gloss polish and an orange pad followed by menzerna intensive polish and ceramic polish with a blue pad. No wax yet as I have to wait 30-60 days but I'll use Pinnacle and that should make it shine even more.

I finally installed the box and woofer. You'll notice the woofer isn't centered, that's the only way it would fit . Also I am STILL waiting for woofersetc to send me back my Zapco amp which is supposed to be getting fixed. I'm refinishing the plastic interior dulso pieces and am about to have my Avic Z3 installed completely. There's a bit of a gap between the box and the wall behind the seats, it should fit flush so I need to move the wires around underneath it.
