I remember how you lost contact with the guy you were having the "secret" faceplate done by.
I know you sent him the actual plate. But just out of curiousity, how long did it take you to make it?
I mess around with carbon fiber for my cars a little. I cant make a solid peice that would be show quality but could cover a plate. I've got a ton of different weaves on rolls laying around here and would be willing to help you get the end result that you wanted. I'll be completely honest and tell you that it wont be any time soon as I've got a huge project going but I could deff do it for you for pretty much nothing other than costs of shipping and a few yards of fiber, resin, and paper. Only because this is the best DIY sub build ever if you ask me. Just the pile of scraps had me amazed when this started. It would be a project that would be on both our back burners, you making another plate and me getting to it when I can.
Just an option. I could also give you the names of some companies that could make it show quality if they would do it. They normally do car stuff but possibly could do it as well. They hang around on nagtroc.com nissan gtr car forum where I visit quite regularly.
Thank you for the offer.
Just like the enclosure, I didn't keep track of the hours, but it was A LOT of work. It wasn't nearly as much fun either. I will probably end up building another face plate, but its definately a winter project. And I'm in the process of building a dedicated HT too, so it will have to wait until I'm done that.
Before anyone asks, the HT will not be an aesthetic project like the sub. Its going to be simple and functional with the focus and money going towards the equipment rather than the looks.
