We used 1/4" so I dont think you can get it a Lowe's or HD. Try a metal supply warehouse. The trunk panels are a mix of everything you mentioned and are pressure fit in place.

I dont know much about that, but would the vibrations still make the panels move since they are not bolted? If that process can be explained.

I have put panels in my Sorie but they are secured from within the paneling enclosure.

The panels are made to fit together in a specific order, each one holding the previous one in place. The last panel is the rear trim piece which then locks in place. If anything rattles down the road Ill use some neodymium magnets to tighten the fit in those areas.

I am not familiar as to how to make those magnets work with panels. If you can explain that process or PM me on it I'd appreciate.

Pretty simple actually and I'm sure there are a million ways to do it - I got the idea from one of Steve Meade's YouTube videos. I buy my magnets from http://unitednuclear.com/

I remember always being very impressed by the creativity of Fishman installs, and this one is no exception. Glad to see work of this caliber is still being done.

I ran out to the garage and snapped a few pics of the kickpanels. I'm planning to rebuild them but you'll get the idea... Basically I glued two pieces of Birch together, made a template, bolted the template up to the kick and dropped in the speaker. Believe it or not I only had to trim about 1/4" of steel out of the hole then I coated the entire area with CAE deadener.

I'm on vacation this week so I get to work on the Car for a change...

I've spend the last few days cleaning up all the wiring to meet IASCA specifications and rebuilding the kick panel. I'll post some pics later tonight, so far I'm pretty happy.

I've also been working on the amp rack for the Milbert. If I make any significant progress I'll post pics of that also.

I saw the link, but it doesn't really say much of anything others than its a Car building competition. Is Fish going to be building a Car with a group of guys or will there be some of his insane audio fabrication incorporated with the car build?

Is Fishman still doing car audio at a shop, his place??? We see much of guys like him anymore, especially since there aren't car audio magazines being made now. Maybe we can get him to do a Build log on here of cars he's working on, kind of like Bing and Joey from Simplicity Sounds do. Just an idea.

Anyways, I'm glad that you have a great relationship with him.

No haven't even started them yet... I've been working on the amp rack for the Milbert, which is almost done, and mounting the horns further back under the dash. I had rotator cuff surgery a while back so I've been out of commission. I'll try to post a few pics tomorrow.
