Again, not sure your complaint so elaborate and Iíll either explain or concede my lousy fab skills.
Sensitive much? If that little comment got you this upset, then you're about to blow your lid. The vent is proportioned wrong, too narrow for it's height. Do you own a router? That would've done wonders on that "round over". The "beauty" panel doesn't fit. You obviously jig sawed everything, not a straight cut in sight. The carpet is all lumpy. Have no idea what you tried to do with where the beauty panel meets the box vent, is that some kind of L channel screwed into it? Which then leads to the question of why you even tried to round it over on the box, in the first place?

Anyway, my apologies for upsetting you. Sometimes it's Ok to have a little humility. Your metal fab skills blow me away, I wouldn't even know where to start with that cowl repair.

Naw, not upset at all. Vent is to JLs specs and my experience with them over the years shows they know what they are doing. The only time that was wrong in my experience is when they told me it wasn’t possible to build a band pass for 8w6s. They changed their mind after we showed them the design we built that hit 133db a weighted on half of a PPI 50x4 amp.

No, I don’t have a router or a whole bunch of tools, would love to but the garage barely fits the car so it’s not worth building a big shop yet.

Sensitive? Naw, just not a prick. I’m well aware it’s not top notch, I have not installed audio gear since 1996 but hey, if it makes ya feel better just wait until I learn how to weld and do body work, that should be a hoot.

No it's a kit from a company called tmi, comes sewn, you just have to add foam, put in listing wires and hog ring everything on.

Very nice looking! Do you plan to use the factory buckets, or something else?

The lower backs of the factory buckets are going to look better in the car. Nice work!
