Speaker grills
Written by obijuanak on 3/13/2012 at 01:14 am

I fabricated my own from 6" round speaker grills. Just measure cut and bend
(mine stood off the panel surface by about 1/4" instead of being flush). Take
your time. A final pass with black spray paint will keep them looking good. Then
I installed them with hot-melt glue. The speaker blanks came of with the use of
a dremel tool and a cutting wheel.

Good luck!

    Mine didn't have speakers, so I took the dash off, cut out the holes using the pattern laid into the plastic dash, sanded it down cleanly, and fabricated the speaker 'covers' by going to the auto junkyard and going through the cars until I fo

    Craig, the panel where the speaker grills go is designed to be removed, id. the goove makes the plastic there thinner than the rest of the panel. Artful use of an Xacto knife and a little finishing will do the job. For speaker grills I us
