Arrow Fiberglass E30 Dash

What do you guys think about a glass dash in my E30..

I would do matching glass rear deck, front kick pannel pods, sub enclosure and amp rack.. all painted body color and do the seats in black leather..

Feedback!

I think it would look good. I was trying to do something myself with the rear deck and door pods. I want to mount subs in the rear deck but I think I am lacking the room. I havent measured yet.

Jase.. there are tricks to build good speaker pods it's not that easy unless you know how. you should be able to fit a 6.5 inch down there.. as far as the rear deck it will be hard to slide a fiberglass shelf in there but i'm shure it can be done if a two piece is used.. as for subs you should try these! they are actually pretty good from what i hear.

Blaupunkt ODw1000
-Mounting depths just over 2" allows for extremely tight installations with thin subwoofer enclosures

You would be better off putting them in the bottom of the door. Unless you angle them toward you and up they are very inefficient. I was going to cut the rear deck and buikd a box under them. As far as building pods. depends on where.if you do the area by your feet you can pull back the carpet and fiberglass the area for a backing and use MDF for the rings and the area to hold up the ring. after you strech and staple the sheet over the ring and it is resined and dryed,area for the speaker cut out with a dremel.You can use feather fill( spray can) it sands like chalk. Prime it and paint or vinyl or fabric..done..There is more involved but it is a slight run down. I will look for a link to a website for info.

try here www.the12volt.com

I had plans to use come carbon fiber but i am just playing with the fiberglass for now. I have done a few things covered in C/F .The fiberglass is way cheaper.

I was talking about subs in the rear deck . Including cutting into the deck itself. I just think I am short on distance between the rear seat and rear window.

if you use every little inch.. you'll have just about 10" if your going for loud.. your better off to keep them in the trunk or port through the ski boot. ever thought of putting speakers on the sides of the rear seats.. if it's 2 door.. you have a huge empty space in there. i wouldn't cut the rear deck.. cause i think it's structural
