I used a styrofoam ball that can be bought in any hobby shop..

after the mold has been covered with resin I could start applying polyester
after about 8 layers it looks like this:
a second mold to resemble the outer rim of the driver
and another 3 - 4 layers of glass
after removing all molding: and sanding the hell out it:
then a lot of filling and sanding was required
keep doing this a few times (8 in my case)
and then you can start painting, it turned out to be too cold over here, so the paintjod is a disaster. I have to wait until summer to redo this.
in the mean time it is playing very nice..
