Default fiberglass kick panels

here is a few pictures of a pair of fiberglass kick panels I made for my car. I think made these about 7 years ago before I even painted my car and they are holding up perfect so far. The reason I made these is that the aftermarket ones are junk. They are cheap plastic and rattle like hell.

I made the rings out of MDF and used wooden dowels and hot glue to make the frame. Then it was just a matter of stretching some nylon material over it and fiberglassing it. I didnt have to get picky with sanding since I was covering it with carpet anyway. The crossovers for the components are tucked up under the dash. I have my amps mounting inside my rear seats
