I'd love a pair!

Thanks,
John

John, I'm not sure if Trevor ever fab'd anything, but LenB is currently working on sets of new Door Panels with speaker boxes, rear speakers boxes, seat rails, center consoles and a few other cool accessories. Get in contact with him.

http://www.defendersource.com/forum/...hp?userid=1059

Here is some of his work...

I'm in for upgraded door cards for SWs . They would have to be gray! can you guys check into color options?.

The above alu panels look like their made for series type of door, is he making sets for D90s?, it's all good IMO.

Yes, Len is making sets for the D-90s. I'm not familiar with what the differences are between the SWs and STs, but I'm sure if you contact him, that can be worked out.

As far as color choices, I myself was thinking about either having it powder coated or Line-x'd. Both options allow you choices of colors!

The intakes are also available!

I did. Not as professional-looking as Len's work, but I'll take some pictures.

Here are a couple pictures of my completed install. The gooey black stuff you may notice around the panels' edges is "B-Quiet Ultimate" (http://www.b-quiet.com/ultimate.html), a viscoelastic sound-deadener. I applied it to both the inside of the door frame, and the inside of the new panels.

Because the panels are flat, without the contours of the OEM plastic, there wasn't clearance for my midrange drivers, so I fabbed aluminum standoffs. (They bear a remarkable resemblance to pie tins, don't they...?) I pulled the door pockets off the plastic panels, and mounted them to the chequeur plate. My panels don't extend all the way up to the window. I fabbed trays to fit in the recess under the door curve. I relocated the door handles rearward slightly.

I'm still having some resonance issues with my speakers. Not sure yet if it's in the standoff-to-panel interface, or panel-to-door.

Looks good Trevor, Good Idea on the trays. Thanks for the pics, It will help me out a ton when I start in on mine.
What thickness of 5 bar did you end up using?

Why not use SIII door panels? They are cheap and look pretty nice. I am thinking about fabbing some up out of masonite and covering in vinyl for the 110.

Not sure on the thickness. I got the five-bar from Industrial Metal Supply, and I believe they had two thicknesses available. I chose the thinner of the two, and would probably switch to the thicker if I was doing it again.

Never thought of that. Ron, how are they different from Defender panels? Are they flat?
