I know the motor is gonna be under the main cover, but I think he should make a trim cover for the motor as well. everything else is so nice looking, it just looks out of place.

here we go again

a little thingie in CF.
This will come under the right vent, just for looks.
On the leftside we have the CF piece where the motor is at, so it looks more the same on the right side went you look through the vents.



Voor de rest is het windstil met de instal.STILTE VOOR DE STORM.[][][]

Started to make the side-panels.
Do not underestimate these things. We've seen many many great installs, but on the sidepanels mostly they get a 5/10
So he got work to do.
He's biggest problem still, was the fueltank.
And on the left-side he hd the problem, he didn't have the same depth, cause there must come an extra amp behind it.. This amp will not be showed when its' finished

First, startin' to make a plexi plate. The meaning of this is that he can see where he's coming with the panel.
The wood on top is just for extra support



Then he made a model in MDF. You can see he's holding on to the same shapes as the cf ventholders




This is the frontplate of the side. Here also comes the model of the (rain)drop



This is the mdf frame where the glass is getting into. Fits exactly into the front panel. This will come in CF, so there will be a great contrast with the frontpanel that'll come in silver.


He worked many hours milding, glad he still got all fingers.





Here you can see he didn't exactly copy the (rain)-drops. Doing silly , why not?



Now he has to stretch the stretchfoil en combine the two parts with fiberglas/polyester




little stuff like making another mdf plate against the back seat, and some other stuff

thx for comments dude

on this picture, you see i glued the front and back together with some wooden sticks


He got it all out of the car, and placed it on the table.
Here you see he did the same but on the back.
Glued VERY TIGHT on each other, so the stretchsheet will be tight when fastened



This is how it looks.


His misses thought he was making a wooden fruitscale


Then he took some stretchsheet, and stretched nicely, not so easy as it looks






now work with some polyester, and that's it
Life can be simple, isn't it?

The green golf course isn't seeable any more
Everything filled with filler, and this piece will be covered in CF-Kevlar:-)
He wants to get the same effect as the subkist. The back also will be covered in CF.
The carbonkevlar won't go withour a 'snitch'. That's why he's going to try putting on top, cause to see this, you gotta be a real gymnast in a trunk
Magic he can't do...




You see, every piece can get out of each other



If you look as this pic, it doesn't look like much, but in real life, we think it's awesum !


with the frame in front

the left panel is also finished. The little box where the eqt will stand.


the 2 cf frames with a layer of epoxy. now rubb it good and hard, so we can put another layer,...


Here he turned of the back panel. Now you can see how the amp will come (amp=dummy)




space between plate and amp. on top it's about 1cm


This amp, will get enough coolin with the 2 vents
He's got lucky that underneath the amp, there's a vent-shaft thats comes out behind the bumpers.

He also did the preperations to cover the side of the boxes in CFkevlar.
hope he will get this to a good end...cause that won't be easy.
if it fails, they will be sprayed in car colour
